Full Platter:

Friday’s Connecticut tragedy will forever be a nightmare to parents around the world. As many prepared this morning to send their children to school, reluctance and concern were blaring across the social networks.

This afternoon, Noah Pozner and Jack Pinto, two of the 20 child victims will have memorial services.  This harsh reality of violence and irresponsibility has brought up talk about changes in legislations, reports Reuters.

President Obama, who was obviously moved by the tragedy as he shed tears during his first press conference on Friday, made a statement that he along with other officials and law enforcement and mental health professionals will need to come together and study on how to stop such violence.

“We bear responsibility for every child,” he stated at Sunday’s memorial, “this is our first task, caring for our children. It’s our first job. If we don’t get that right, we don’t get anything right”.

Not only has the President spoke up about changes that need to take place, West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin desires talk about assault weapons’ availability be brought up, says The Ticket.

Known as an “A” rated member of the NRA and one of the most forefront gun rights advocates in the Senate believes that it is the perfect time to bring up discussion about gun laws without having the fear of imposing on Second Amendment rights.

Of course, this is after information was released that 20-year-old gunman, Adam Lanza had more than 30 rounds of ammunition during the massacre.

The harsh reality that 26 innocent lives were violently taken in a place that was supposed to be a safe haven makes us all remember to never take this life for granted. The question still remains: how  will we prevent this from happening again?

Tell us what you think.
