A visibly upset President Obama said that things can change, following the Oregon shooting incident. He called Americans to push for new gun control laws after the heart breaking firearm violence.
He came candid with the cold truth saying that incidents such as the Oregon College shooting have become so routine that it seemed like everyone had become numb to such events. Also, that the US is the only developed country wherein such tragedies have been occurring at an increasingly alarming rate.
President Obama then pointed out that thoughts and prayers were not enough, that it was time to take action and to implement stricter gun laws.
President Obama announced to the media that he was growing impatient with the political system, dismayed that even after several school shootings, that the system had still not come up with tougher gun laws.
“There has been another mass shooting in America, this time in Oregon. It is moms, dads and children whose lives have been changed forever, another community stunned with grief,” said Obama.
He continued on with his speech pointing out that this was the 15th time he had to give a speech in the wake of a mass shooting and even mocked opponents who brought up solutions of more guns and fewer safety laws to such incidents.
“I hope and pray that I don’t have to come out again during my tenure as President to offer my condolences to families in these circumstances. But based on my experience as President, I can’t guarantee that — and that’s terrible to say. And it can change,” he ended.
