Obama to Join Vigils for Connecticut School Massacre

Source: Jakarta Globe:

Newtown, Connecticut. President Barack Obama was due in the small Connecticut community of Newtown on Sunday to join in vigils for the 20 small children and seven adults slaughtered by a young gunman.

The president’s visit comes two days after the heavily armed 20-year-old, Adam Lanza, stalked into the Sandy Hook elementary school and raked students, teachers and administrators with gunfire, after first killing his mother in their home — in one of the worst mass shootings in US history.

The tragedy has revived calls for a debate on gun control, though the White House has scotched any suggestion that the politically explosive subject would be quickly reopened.
