Obama uses campaign email to send a message on shooting

The Obama campaign is using its email list to send an email from campaign manager David Axelrod, noting Obama's remarks Sunday night in Newtown calling for an end to violence.

"Our hearts broke on Friday as we learned of the tragic and senseless deaths of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut," Axelrod wrote, adding that "Obama addressed the families of Newtown, offering the love and prayers of a nation, and vowing to use whatever power his office holds to protect our children from such unthinkable acts of violence."

He added that Obama "spoke from the heart -- as a president and a parent" and included in the email the clip of the speech.

"As we reflect on the lives lost last week, we must also, as the President urged, consider how each of us can play a part in making our country worthy of the memory of those little children," he wrote. "I hope you and the ones you love have a happy and safe holiday."
