Photos: Barack Obama talks gun control at the Denver Police Academy

As recently as Monday, Representative Rhonda Fields didn't know if she'd be invited to President Barack Obama's Wednesday gun-control talk at the Denver Police Academy. But Fields was on hand along with many other local political heavyweights, including Governor John Hickenlooper, Senate President John Morse, Senator Rollie Heath and many others. Our Brandon Marshall was on hand to capture the scene. Look below to see a sampling of his photos, then visit the complete "President Obama Addresses Gun Legislation" slide show.
