America's Dunblane!

 The British press has already begun the mantra. America's Dunblane! And Obama has already seized upon it.

— Shock, fury and shame at America's Dunblane— Obama: We're not doing enough, we must change

THESE are the innocents of America’s Dunblane — whose names were read out one by one by President Barack Obama as he vowed to clampdown on his nation's deadly guns culture.

Obama said he would use “whatever power” he has to prevent more shootings like Friday’s rampage by Adam Lanza happening again.
In a powerful speech last night at an evening vigil in Newtown, Connecticut, he suggested he is considering a radical move to ditch America’s historic right to bear arms in the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre.
Obama said: “Are we really prepared to say that we’re powerless in the face of such carnage, that the politics are too hard?
“Are we prepared to say that such violence visited on our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom?”
