Together, millions of us are promising not to let Newtown be one in a series of gun crimes after which nothing happens.
Every time our country faces an atrocity like the killings in Newtown, people get angry and demand change. But change never arrives, and people keep dying—gunned down in schools and malls and temples all across America.
So this time, we're going to do something a little different. We are Republicans and Democrats, gun enthusiasts and anti-gun activists, families and teachers. Together, today, we are making a solemn promise not to go away. We are going to keep fighting until this problem is solved once and for all.
