Sister of Newtown victim makes gun-control plea in letter to Obama (Innocent but Ignorant Child)
Yahoo News ^ | 12/20/2012 | Yahoo News

Posted on 12/20/2012 6:12:49 PM PST by Dallas59

Natalie's letter, written to President Barack Obama and read by Anderson Cooper on air, voiced her clear and thoughtful belief that guns did not belong in the hands of most civilians:

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.

TOPICS: Government; News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: guncontrol; kid; obama; secondamendment
One of the best comments on the Yahoo news story was: "Unfortunately, the only people that would then have guns would be the Police, the Military and the criminals."



I hope this kid is taught or learns the true meaning of the 2nd Amendment. The Government is not your friend.

That child did not compose that text. She was taking dictation.

Rather than instruct and enlighten children, progressives deliberately let themselves be schooled by them.

There are no real adults at the liberal's table.

Looks like there’s no minimum age requirement to be a useful idiot.

Anyone that has little kids knows that this girl did NOT write this letter. I have an 8 year old cousin(Soon to be 9 yrs old) on the honor roll and he can’t write like this. So either it was written for her or she was told what to say. Why am I so cynical, because the words that she supposedly uses I already heard, from left wing media people..its practically word for word

To whoever it is that actually wrote the letter you give special concern for hunting, but what if I want to use guns to defend myself? Or will special ranges be made available for me to be relatively safe for as long as I stay? What about everywhere else, where I’m exposed? Oh yeah, we already have those. They’re called gun free zones.

This sounds horrible but it is reality and it's what the little children aren't told.

P.S. Mr. Obama....It's okay to kill unborn babies though because you said so and they don't use a gun.

“Innocent but Ignorant Child”

You were referring to obama, right?

She should also write:

“When you smuggle thousands of machine-guns to your Sinaloa Cartel partners, that undermines gun control....”

300 Mexicans killed confirmed, though probably the number is really in the THOUSANDS. AND 2 US officers killed, so far. Also a helicopter shot down, and a casino burned.

So if she wrote this letter to Barry Django, how the hell did the CNN fairy get his dirty paws on it?

I presume that either her parents or one of her teachers dictated this to the poor kid. Pretty lousy using a kid for political purposes, especially one who has just lost her brother. But I’ll refrain from saying anything more, since the parents and teachers are probably also in a pretty bad way.

But who gave the letter to Anderson Cooper? Barry? Disgusting to play politics over the bodies of children.

She has probably seen with her own eyes that the school can’t even stop the fisticuffs of bullies. What makes her think that such a ban will hinder people who are not honest?

"My name is Natalie Barden and I wanted to tell the president that only police officers and the military should get guns." (Natalie)

I hope this kid is taught or learns the true meaning of the 2nd Amendment. (Dallas59)

Me, too. Natalie has some very poor information sources, little understanding of the God-given rights she is asking the government to take away, scant practice in critical thinking, and abysmal adult mentors. How can we tell her that, effectively? She is a danger to others, probably more so than Adam Lanza was if her wish comes true.

We already know the effect of gun bans. Defenseless people are murdered until defense arrives.

The first thing I thought when I started reading the letter. Didn’t have to read more than a couple sentences before I knew someone else wrote it or narrated it to her.

56 million is probably a conservative estimate, probably closer to 100 million.

Spread the truth!

It’s common sense, people call the police because the police will shoot the psycho.

Until then we should sit there and be slaughtered?

It’s incredible that people are peddling this nonsense.

And the type of gun, the magazine capacity, makes no difference. None! WHEN YOU’RE DEFENSELESS!

The politicians exploiting this for their agenda are repugnant.

The second I read the portion about how only the militara and police should have guns I knew the letter was fake. I heard the EXACT SAME BS from some far left loon(I forgot which one I always block out the stupidity) so now they are using 10 yrs olds to push their agenda..every single time I think the left can’t stoop any lower they surprise even me

Ha, ha, you beat me to it. There is a reason we don’t let kids make important decisions. Children do not have the ability to reason as an adult does, or should. Liberals never attain that level of rational thought, though.

Hey brother, I'm with you on the 2nd Amendment and everything, but this little girl is ten years old and she just buried her little brother this week. Maybe we ought to cut her a little slack.

It's so very sad to see her have to go through this, and come to the simplistic child-like conclusion she did. Cut her slack, sure -- lots -- but not for the manipulators who are seizing on pity for her and her anguished note to influence others to false conclusions that do not address the fundamental causes. Thus she becomes an unwitting but dangerous tool for sly propagandists.

THIS is publicized.

But any Newtown residents who are pro-second-amendment will be ignored.

Just like the father of the slain Colombine victim was ignored by the Pravda Press.

Why is it that when youngsters babble liberal tripe we are supposed to pay heed, but when it comes to bearing responsibility we are supposed to excuse children even at age 26?

This morning, FOX news reporting Obama will be speaking out today as “rememberance for Sandy Hook”.

The O admin knows the over emotional mood is slipping away.
So they intend to not allow the masses to return to normal with more level headed thinking.
