Julia continues: "I beg you to work very hard to make guns not allowed, not just for me, but for the whole United States."
Ten year-old Taejah is less specific. "I am very sad about the children
who lost their lives in Conn.," he writes. "So I thought I would write
to you to STOP gun violence. Thank you, Mr. President."
