Obama Asks Americans To Help With Gun Law Changes

A website set up by the White House to solicit petitions has been flooded in the wake of last Friday’s gun massacre at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school, and today, President Obama issued a video response to petitioners, indicating that he hears the outpouring loud and clear.

Over 400,000 signatures have been collected on petitions related to gun violence since the tragedy in Connecticut – one of the petitions was the fastest ever to reach the 25,000 signature threshold that would compel a response from the White House. One typical petition urges the White House to “Immediately address the issue of gun control through the introduction of legislation in Congress.”
