Pelosi to Use Fourth Grader as Prop at SOTU for Gun Control

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will lurch for viewers’ heartstrings tonight when she brings a fourth grade girl from Newtown, Connecticut to watch the State of the Union.

The fourth grader will be used as a young prop to help Democrats make the point that Congress should pass sweeping gun control legislation this year.

The ploy is reminiscent of President Obama’s use of children at a White House gun control event in January to help manipulate emotions in favor of his policies.

The fourth grader attends school in Newtown, though not the Sandy Hook Elementary School, where the massacre of children and their teachers occurred. She was invited after she wrote a letter to Pelosi in which she described an online petition she had started asking Obama and lawmakers to enact gun control measures.
