Boston bomb suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev included on list of victims of gun violence at NH rally

A gun-control group that's reading the names of thousands of victims of gun violence during a national bus tour is apologizing for including one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects on the list.

The Mayors Against Illegal Guns stopped in Concord, N.H., on Tuesday as part of its campaign to build support for legislation to expand background checks for gun buyers. Such legislation failed in the Senate.

As part of the event, participants read the names of more than 6,000 Americans killed with guns since the massacre at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., in December. One of the names was Tamerlan Tsarnaev (TAM'-ehr-luhn tsahr-NEYE'-ehv), who died in an exchange of gunfire with police days after the April 15 bombings.

The group says his name shouldn't have been listed.
