A Kid's Petition Against Gun Violence

My name is Bella and I am a 4th grader from New York City. When I heard what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School, I felt sad and speechless. I think that guns are just a way to bring violence to the world. Kids shouldn't have to worry when they go to school. Parents shouldn't have to send their kids to school and worry that they're not going to see them afterwards. My school has been doing lockdown drills and it's made me scared about what they're for. So please sign this petition to tell the government to make new laws to protect children from gun violence.

Kids shouldn't have to worry about gun violence when they go to school. Parents shouldn't have to send their kids to school and worry that they're not going to see them afterwards. Please make new laws to protect kids from gun violence. It's very important!

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I think it is sad that we are putting politics and the voice of lobbyists before the voice of citizens, especially children. It is sad that the small percentage of Americans who LOVE guns or make money from them are the voice that is controlling the decisions in washington. What happened to the voice of the people. Research shows that more people support gun law regulations, especially with regards to assault rifles. Please so something to support the voice of the people instead of fearing the loss of revenue from the NRA.

      A world without guns is a world without wars and violence!

      This madness has to stop. No private citizen should have the right - or the ability - to own an assault rifle. Period.
