They plan on giving a news conference on Monday January 14th.
Newtown United Rebranding As 'Sandy Hook Promise'The group is taking its message to a national audience in hopes of preventing another tragedy like the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, 2012.
Their main purpose from my understanding is gun control.
And today, Newtown United announced it will now be known as Sandy Hook Promise, a change its Newtown-based founders hope will reinforce its mission of preventing another tragedy by becoming a catalyst to effect meaningful policy change on a national level.
This coming Monday, on what will be one month to the day since the Newtown school shooting, Sandy Hook Promise will kick off its national effort with a press conference on the steps of Edmond Town Hall.
It seems that anyone who wants to speak with the families of the Sandy Hook shooting has to go through this group first. Even the Vice President has to go through them. He wants to speak with the families and the Sandy Hook Promise group is the one who is acting as the in-between.
I find that a little strange. No one can speak with the families unless it is through this group?
The group, Sandy Hook Promise, has been working to help the families whose loved ones were killed in the Dec. 14 massacre of 20 first-graders and six women at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown. It said in an email to the families that it could arrange a call or put the families in touch directly with Biden's office.
"If you choose to wait a few weeks, or months, the offer is still there," the group wrote.
White House officials have said they are communicating with local groups and the families in Newtown.
Sandy Hook Promise co-founder Tim Makris said it passed along Biden's offer as part of its mission to aid the families.
WHY in the world would a group be in control of who speaks to the families? Did the families put this group in charge? They changed their name from Newtown United to Sandy Hook Promise to have more of a gut reaction/emotional trigger from people? Also what is the "Promise" part of their name? What are they promising? Gun Control?
I have been reading lots of comments on various sites.... here is one from the article about Biden meeting with the families:
Interesting that a CNN poll showed that 65% of Catholics are strongly in favor of stricter gun controls while ony 35% of Evangelicals are. This sure gives a clearer picture of where the oposition is coming from as well as the direction any future SCOTUS actions might go.
People are believing the majority of the U.S. citizens want gun control. For the comment to imply that a SCOTUS ruling could be swayed by anything up the Constitution is amazing. The Constitution is what they are suppose to hold up as the highest standard of any ruling.
They are already strong enough to have their own press conference about wanting gun control?
Another article has Sandy Hook Promise as being a big voice in what ever control the White House decides on:
Newtown United, a local group that formed after the shootings to help the families and to forge a community dialogue, is rebranding itself as Sandy Hook Promise. The group says it has members of victims' families among its supporters.
So Scarborough has been proven to have lied in that "plea" to not join the NRA because the government will never come for your guns. The video above proves the government confiscates guns!
All I can say, is they must be planning something very big for them to be coming out so strongly to try and brainwash the people that coming together as One is a very bad idea. As long as we keep being divided and try and do something on an individual basis (calling our elected officials... is a joke) then they will be able to take our 2nd amendment away and our Freedoms. But once we come together as a strong group united in focus then they will not be able to do it. That is why there is such a negative manipulative push of lies being trotted out.
Update - David Keene, President of NRA, on State of the Union - NRA will not compromise - Lies from Huffington Post.
This is of such major importance...... if they get a national registration through... then they know where to get the guns later. When they say "They will never confiscate guns on a whole" know they are lying.... as Katrina proved that they will come into your home with their guns pointed at you and take your lawful gun away from you.... in the name of an "Emergency."
