Obama says most gun owners use their guns safely and responsibly, he says he believes firmly in protecting our Second Amendment rights.
(WASHINGTON DC) - Yesterday, President Obama announced his plan to protect children and communities by helping reduce gun violence.
A news release regarding this, states, "We won't stop every violent act like the one in Newtown, Connecticut. But if we can save the life of even one child, the President believes each of us has a responsibility to take action".
