Anti-Gun Petition Gains Traction

In the wake of the Sandy Hook shootings, an online petition on the White House's We the People blog is rallying "to force the Obama Administration to produce legislation that limits access to guns," the petition reads. "Powerful lobbying groups allow the ownership of guns to reach beyond the Constitution's intended purpose of the right to bear arms." As of Dec. 17, it has gathered more than 146,000 signatures.
