President Barack Obama will travel to Newtown, Conn., on Sunday to meet with families of those killed in the shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School and thank emergency workers who responded to the tragedy, the White House said Saturday.

"The President will also speak at an interfaith vigil for families of the victims as well as families" at 7 p.m., press secretary Jay Carney said in a statement.

On Friday, an emotional Obama vowed to "take meaningful action, regardless of the politics," to prevent future tragedies like the shooting massacre, which killed 26 people at the school, 20 of them children.

Time for the Kenyan to do some of his specialty photo op hugs. Great. I imagine he’ll promise them that he is going to take away the Second Amendment rights of Americans.

Why doesn't he leave these people alone instead of using them as props?

It's disgusting depraved to exploit these people in such a time of grief and anguish.

My 8 year old niece was very emotional and upset about the shooting. When Barack gave his speech, she remarked, “Why is he pretending to cry?”

BAN THESE DRUGS

http://www.ssristories.com/

These facts are known by the politicians.

These side effects have been acknowledged by the drug companies.

One begins to wonder if the fascists in our gov’t - who know the first step in taking over a country is the necessity of stripping citizens of their guns - didn't go to the drug companies and make a deal to develop these drugs - for this purpose. The fact that these gun-controllers, from the president on down, were loud and clear in demanding gun-control, using this tragedy for their agenda, while those little bodies were still in that school speaks volumes!

Yes, such evil exists. It operates on such high levels because decent people can't conceive of such raw evil.
We need to acknowledge it.

We need to let our politicians and media KNOW we know - and know THEY know - and demand they answer us individually.

BAN THESE DRUGS...and those that demand gun-control. They are even more dangerous.

President Barack Obama will travel to Newtown, Conn., on Sunday

I wonder why he is taking the chance? I saw plenty of people on TV walking around that town carrying firearms.

I was already pissed that Obama was going to Newtown with his motorcades, security, all the stuff that will clog up traffic and the town for hours .... making a mess when they’re trying to pull the pieces together. When I heard Whorealdo say “healer-in-chief”, I just about threw up. Mo’ Drama Obama is going to “milk” this evil for all it’s worth.

Re: “Obama promises ‘meaningful action’”

Translation: “I am going to issue an executive order banning the sale of all firearms until we can get gun violence under control. Further, all weapons currently owned by citizens must be turned in to local authorities within the next three months or face fines and incarceration.”

I have no doubt that he would do this and who would stop him?? No one.

Did massacre gunman make internet threat the day before Sandy Hook massacre?
Daily Mail ^ | 12/15/12 | staff
Posted on December 15, 2012 8:42:51 PM AKST by Nachum

An eery post on an Internet message board made Wednesday night by a user allegedly in Connecticut who threatened to kill himself on Friday morning and ‘make the news,’ is raising some questions as to whether it was Newtown Elementary School shooter Adam Lanza.

According to Infowars.com, the post appeared on the 4Chan web site at 10:18pm Wednesday and was made by a user with the user name ‘iKTatjYX.’

The post stated, ‘I’m going to kill myself on Friday and it will make the news, be watching at 9am.’
