WASHINGTON - - The White House says President Barack Obama will be joined by children who sent letters expressing concern about gun crimes when he announces proposals Wednesday to reduce gun violence.

The White House shared three such letters with The Associated Press.

Three days after 26 students and teachers were killed by a gunman at their Connecticut elementary school, an 8-year-old from Maryland asked Obama for "some changes in the laws with guns."

The boy named Grant wrote, "It's a free country but I recommend there needs (to) be a limit with guns."

Eleven-year-old Julia from the District of Columbia asked Obama "to try very hard to make guns not allowed. Not just for me, but for the whole United States."
