BarackObama.com: Give Us Your Gun Violence Stories

By Craig Bannister | February 20, 2013 | 2:09pm EST

An e-mail from BarackObama.com invites people to share their gun violence stories and reasons for supporting stronger gun control measures.

The “From” window of the e-mail says, “Sami Rahamim,” though replies go to info@barackobama.com.

In the e-mail, Rahamim explains that one of his parents died as a result of gun violence:

“My dad, Reuven Rahamim, was killed this past September in a mass shooting. I was 17 years old, one of 15 children who lost a parent that day. I'm honoring his memory -- and those of many others who have fallen -- by doing something about gun violence.”

“Share your story,” he invites readers and provides a link to a submission page on the barackobama.com website.

Another page on the website displays "stories about gun violence," attributing the author’s first name, last-name initial and hometown.

Many of the stories are about gun violence involving schools and students. One, by “Kindra S.” of Chelsea, MI, describes how “a mentally unstable teacher went on a shooting tirade after school & killed our superintendent & attempted to kill our principal and another teacher.”
