President Obama, House and Senate Leaders: Stop the senseless deaths...Initiate SERIOUS gun Control

    1. Petition by

      Chris J.

      Napa, CA

I sit here shocked and dismayed by the senseless deaths caused by guns in our society. As the parent of a 5 year old who I dropped at Kindergarten this morning I can not imagine the horror, pain and sorrow the parents, family, friends and community of the Sandy Hook Elementary School are experiencing right now. 3000 miles away I am horrified and must speak out. We have seen gun massacre after gun massacre with no movement, no leadership, no change in Washington to initiate change. It must come NOW and it must come from all leaders in our government, starting with you Mr. President. As parents of two lovely children yourself, how can we stand by and allow our society to continue down this path towards senseless death, horror and the irresponsibility of an industry more interested in making money than protecting our nations populace?

I/we urge you to act Mr. President. NOW!


Chris J.
A voice for elimination of our tolerance of weapons and violence in our nation

      I am sickened by the violence and gun culture in America. To those who use the Second Amendment to sanctify the ownership of ANY gun they want remember a musket is very different than a rapid fire assault weapon. Our forefathers would never have sanctioned those.
