An emotional Mr Obama spoke of his "overwhelming grief" over the deaths at Newtown's Sandy Hook Elementary School.Watch President Obama Speak on the tragic event
The suspected gunman was widely identified as Adam Lanza, 20, who is among the dead. Earlier, he is thought to have also killed his mother.
It was one of the most deadly shooting attacks on a US school or university.
In 2007, a student at Virginia Tech university killed 32 people and injured many more.
The children at Sandy Hook Elementary were aged between five and 10.
Police Lt Paul Vance said 18 children were pronounced dead at the school, and two died after being taken to hospital.
Six adults were also killed, and the gunman died at the scene, apparently after shooting himself.
He is thought to have shot dead his mother, a teacher, at a house in Newtown, before heading to the school on Friday morning. Investigators say it is unclear whether she worked there.
I just got an email this morning to sign the petition to review US Gunlaws
This is not war-torn Syria, Afghanistan, or the Congo, but the site of an unspeakable tragedy -- Newtown, Connecticut. A gunman armed with semiautomatic rifles stormed the Sandy Hook Elementary School. Reports are still streaming in, but in the aftermath: 20 children and 6 adults were murdered.
No one can fully answer why. But today we can change HOW. I am asking you, begging you, to please sign this petition and demand that your elected officials FIX OUR GUN LAWS. People who should not have access to guns buy them every day. Our background checks, systems of purchase, and laws have far too many loopholes and fail to protect our most innocent members of our society.
