Obama marks Newtown anniversary with call for action on GUN CONTROL
[link to m.washingtonpost.com]
President Obama on Saturday marked the first anniversary of the Newtown, Conn., elementary school shootings with calls for stricter gun control and more support for mental health, as well as by lighting candles for each of the victims.

"We haven't yet done enough to make our communities and our country safer," Obama said in his weekly address. "We have to do more to keep dangerous people from getting their hands on a gun so easily. We have to do more to heal troubled minds." The president and first lady lit 26 candles in the White House Map Room on Saturday morning to remember each of the victims, many of them children, who died in the Newtown school shooting last year. They also observed a moment of silence.

MORE: Many in media expected to respect Newtown's request for privacy on shooting anniversary

Newtown officials have asked news outlets not to descend on their city for the anniversary, and many media organizations have agreed to respect the request. In a statement last week, Newtown First Selectman Pat Llodra said journalists should allow residents "the time to be alone and quiet, with time for personal and communal reflection."

The major television networks and newspapers have agreed not to send journalists to the town, although the Associated Press is expected to be there. News outlets are largely expected to rely on the wire service for coverage.

Gun free zones are dangerous to be in. Anytime a store has a sign up saying no guns, I get back in my car and go elsewhere. Someplace safe...

latest email I got was to organize municipalities and get them to divest any holdings in anything gun related. Sell all stocks etc.

Busy little rodents.
Government is a body largely ungoverned.
