OF COURSE: Obama Pushes Gun Control After Colorado Shooting
In what has become routine after an act of gun violence, Obama is using the Colorado shooting to push for greater gun control.
Obama on gun violence: ‘Enough is enough’
President Barack Obama on Saturday said that “enough is enough” in a statement released in the wake of the mass shooting at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic.
“The last thing Americans should have to do, over the holidays or any day, is comfort the families of people killed by gun violence — people who woke up in the morning and bid their loved ones goodbye with no idea it would be for the last time. And yet, two days after Thanksgiving, that’s what we are forced to do again.”…
“This is not normal. We can’t let it become normal. If we truly care about this — if we’re going to offer up our thoughts and prayers again, for God knows how many times, with a truly clean conscience — then we have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them. Period. Enough is enough.”
Never let a crisis go to waste.
