Natalie Barden, 10, whose brother, Daniel, died at the Sandy Hook tragedy wrote a letter to the President about gun control.
In a letter to President Obama, Natalie wrote:
“My name is Natalie Barden and I wanted to tell the president that only police officers and the military should get guns. If people want to do it as a sport than they could go to shooting range and the guns would not be able to leave there.”
Anderson Cooper read her letter on air Tuesday night at Daniel Barden’s wake.
The letter was given to Cooper by Lillian Bittman, former Chair of the Newtown Board of Education.
“This was [Natalie’s] little way of making a difference… It’s helping her heal, because now she can make Daniel’s life count for something and try to get this to the president and then hopefully to Congress and everyone else,” Bittman said.
Natalie’s family met Obama. She and her brother James wanted to express their concern about what happened and hope the President could do something about it.
