Your Turn: Kids Tell Obama What They Think About Guns

These statements and images come from videos made by the White House, in which children read from letters that they had written to President Barack Obama.


Hinna, age 8: “Can we stop using guns? I think if there are not guns on the street, no one can get hurt. Bullets don’t have eyes. They can hurt everyone. I love my country and I want everyone to be happy and safe. No guns. No guns. No guns. No guns.”


Taejah, age 10: “I am writing you to ask you to STOP gun violence. I am very sad about the children who lost their lives in Connecticut.”


Julia, age 11: “I may not be that into politics but my opinion is that it should be very hard for people to buy guns. The only thing they do is harm or kill. I know that laws have to be passed by Congress, but I beg you to try very hard to make guns not allowed. Not just for me, but for the whole United States.”


Grant, age 8: “I think there should be some changes in the law with guns. It’s a free country but I recommend there needs to be a limit with guns. Please don’t let people own machine guns or other powerful guns like that. I think there should be a limit about how many guns a person can own. We should learn from what happened at Sandy Hook [Elementary School].”
