(KTVI) – The tragedy at Sandy Hook elementary immediately thrust talks of gun control into the forefront this weekend. Now there are several petitions posted to We The People, the website set up to allow people to create petitions for the White House to review.
According to Mashable.com, before the petition to address gun control was added, the Texas petition to secede from the Union was the most popular with 120,000. That petition was posted on November 9. The gun control petition has over 140,000 signatures in just a few days.
The White House says petitions posted to We the People that get more than 25,000 signatures are guaranteed a response from the Obama administration.
