Obama Responds to Gun Petition With Video: "We Hear You"

Rule by emotion


President Obama responded Friday to petitioners calling for more gun control, asking them for help in forging policies to help prevent shootings like the one that killed 20 children and six adults a week ago at an elementary school in Connecticut.

"I'm asking for your help to make a real meaningful difference in the lives of our communities and our country," Obama said in a video posted on the White House petition website.
