Arizona is joining a national day of remembrance for the Connecticut elementary school shooting victims with a moment of silence and tolling of bells.

Gov. Jan Brewer says the quiet moment to mark a week after the killings will be at 9:30 a.m. Friday.

She is also asking houses of worship and government buildings to ring their bells 26 times if they can. That’s once each for the 20 children and six women killed by a gunman at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

The proclamation was issued in response to a request by Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy for a “Day of Mourning” for the shooting victims.

  1. There was an armed person at Columbine and that person did not stop the lunatics there from their horrible and terrible violence. We need to fully fund mental health care in Arizona and ban hig capacity ammo clips that can hold a hundred rounds and are clearly designed for the battlefield not hunting and not defense. Semi-Automatic weapons should be banned and every weapon in this country should be put on a national registry. One person tried to bring a bomb on a plane with his shoes and now we have take our shoes off at airports, yet….in the latest in a long of mass killings with a gun not even twenty little children and six adults being slaughtered with a military style assault weapon and hig capacity ammo clip is enough to move our politicians and the lunatic leaders of the NRA ! Ban Assault weapons in Arizona with high capacity ammo clips and fully fund mental health care ! http://www.facebook.com/groups/443885859009985/?fref=ts
