http://signon.org/sign/gun-control-now-1?source=s.em.cp&r_by=6440092 Petition Background On December 14, 2012, at least one gunman entered the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut and opened fire, killing what is currently being reported as a minimum of 27 people, 20 of whom were children. Completely innocent unarmed victims. Columbine. Red Lake Minnesota. Essex Vermont. Lancaster. Virginia Tech. To name a few. How many more innocents must die at the hands of an antiquated and oft-misinterpreted amendment? Enough. It's time to stop the violence.

Somone Could have killed just as many kids driving a car into them. In China 22 kids were slashed in school on Friday. Guns have always been around and there weren't the lunatics like there are now because society was made of better stuff. Mental health "experts" have removed right and wrong from life and made everything about "chemical imbalances" that have never been proven. 11% of Americans are on antidepressants. You can remove all guns now and there would still be lunatics doing violence. Better to get teachers to have guns in school like they do in Israel. Its crazy that people put so many kids in one place with no means of defense. Instead I suppose the next step will be "Gun Free Zone" signs near schools as if that would do any good. America's problem is its been families have been broken and the society driven nuts while bogus experts paved the way.

Extremely sad indeed. These children were far too young to die. They had their lives ahead of them. May God's peace and love surround their families today and always. In my prayers daily.

It's so very sad for those little children.....they were so innocent...and didn't know that they were in the midst of a phsycaric murder....they are precious, sweet, and will always be loved. And to the family of the unfortunate we will never forget about what happened and will remember them in our prayers forever.
