America’s gun culture is more than that. It’s a gun cult. This madness must stop. Our children are more precious than some idiot’s right to have a personal arsenal.
President Obama pledges action: “We can’t tolerate this any more. These tragedies must end, and to end them we must change,” the president said at a memorial service for the victims of Friday’s mass shooting in Connecticut. He pledged to use “whatever power this office holds to engage my fellow citizens … in an effort to prevent more tragedies like this.”
The time is now, President Obama.
