Obama to Mark Newtown Anniversary With Moment of Silence

Still, we’re sure he’ll tweet a photo of himself in remembrance.

President Obama will mark the one-year anniversary of the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting on Saturday with a moment of silence, according to a White House official.

“On Saturday, December 14, the President and First Lady will honor the lives and legacies of the children and educators lost at Sandy Hook Elementary School one year ago by observing a moment of silence at the White House,” the official said.

Still unknown is whether the White House will use the anniversary to renew their call for expanded background checks. Following last year’s massacre, during which 20 schoolchildren and six educators were killed, the president proposed a renewed assault weapon ban, limits on the capacity of magazine clips and universal background checks on all gun purchases.

Now if he’d only shut up for more than a minute. Meanwhile, his (wink wink) campaign team is ready to fully exploit mass murder as only they can.

    Do you think he can maintain a moment of silence? Without mentioning himself, I mean?
