Just three days removed from the Friday’s massacre in Connecticut, our wounded nation continues to mourn. Now, more questions are being asked about preventing future tragedies.
Homes across the nation filled with President Obama’s voice as he spoke to the grieving community of Newtown. He states we must do more to keep our children safe.
"These tragedies must end and to end them we much change," President Obama said.
But just what should be done?... That really depends on who you ask.
"It’s a difficult subject,” Steven Kaphingst said.
"We have to do something,” Jake Favorman said. “This is terrible."
We asked people what changes, if any, they would like to see in our country. Many are turning their focus to gun policies.
Diane Tipping says, "Definitely no assault weapons unless you're in the army or you're a police officer."
Favorman says, "I don't want to see too many changes with the gun laws. I believe in having our freedom to carry arms."
Others say the solution is related to mental illness and violence in media.
Linda Simpson says, "We ought to be thinking about the entertainment industry quite a bit. I think particularly video games the kids play. I think that's a primary source of violence."
Katie, who is a former special education worker, says, "I can say 100%, with all the special ed kids that I worked with, that the following day after playing a video game they had behavioral problems that were aggressive."
President Obama vowed to use the power of his office to prevent future calamities and fulfill what he called America’s foremost obligation.
“Like the president said, enough is enough," Tipping added.
