From the Mouths of Babes

20 Dec


No matter your position on “gun control,” your heart is made of stone if you do not believe that policy and practical changes are now and have been mandatory. A letter meant for President Obama from Valerie Barden, the older sister of a Sandy Hook victim, was read on-air by Anderson Cooper.

My name is Natalie Barden and I wanted to tell the president that only police officers and the military should get guns. If people want to do it as a sport than they could go to a shooting range and the guns would not be able to leave there.

A family friend representing the Bardens approached Cooper with the letter, calling for cooperation in Congress and communities holding their reps accountable.

I am surprised that the representatives from Connecticut have not put something forward.
