The moment has come to lay down our arms and decide that someone who has not proven to be a peaceful person with a healthy mind and a need for a gun shall not get a gun. We need to enforce gun control and restrict access to guns in the public world. On Friday, December 14, 2012, one gunman with a disturbed mind entered a school building in Connecticut. 26 people were killed. Guns are machines of the army, not of peaceful citizens. And we need to make sure that the first founders' vision of this country becomes what it was always meant to be. The children in this free world need to speak for themselves. Do they care about gun control? If you are a child who can read, please think about the fright, the destruction, and all of the killing that grownups have forced upon us. Do you care about this, or do you want to sit back and let the grownups decide? I thank you for reading this, and hope that you help me, you, and the country by signing this petition to our leaders. Thank you, Henry Beers Shenk, age 10, and the signers of this petition.
