Obama angrily demands strict gun control after OR Umpqua Shooting Breaking News October 1 -2015
'Out Thoughts and Prayers Are Not Enought' President Obama Angry Speech over Umpqua Community College Mass Shooting in Roseberg Oregon. Obama Delivers Remarks: Majority wants 'common sense' gun laws, no 'sufficient gun safety laws' in U.S. (Complete Statement). Obama Speaks on Umpqua Shooting: ‘This Is Something We Should Politicize’
An incredibly frustrated and fed up Obama spoke for several minutes from the White House Thursday afternoon.
“Anybody who does this has a sickness in their minds regardless of what they think their motivations may be. But we are not the only country on Earth that has people with mental illnesses or want to do harm to other people,” the president said. “We are the only advanced country on Earth that sees these kinds of mass shootings every few months.”
To those who would accuse him of “politicizing” the tragedy, Obama said, “This is something we should politicize, it is relevant to our common life together, to the body politic.”
WASHINGTON — A visibly frustrated President Obama offered condolences to the victims of the mass shooting at an Oregon college on Thursday, but added that "our thoughts and prayers are not enough" to stem an epidemic of mass shootings in the United States.
Having now spoken after 15 such senseless killings during his administration, Obama again called for "common sense" legislation aimed at preventing gun violence, and mocked opponents of past initiatives he has pushed.
"Each time this happens, I'm going to bring this up," Obama said during emotional remarks in the White House press room.
Obama said he has been to Roseburg, Ore., where the shooting took place, and "there are really good people there" who are the latest victims of gun violence.
"Somehow this has become routine," Obama said. "The reporting has become routine. My response here, from this podium, has become routine."
The president has frequently called for legislation to try and stop gun violence, including enhanced background checks, an assault weapons ban, and improved mental health programs.
As he echoed those calls in the wake of the Oregon shooting, Obama predicted that statements of opposition from gun rights groups were already being written. Many of those opponents will accuse him politicizing tragic shootings, the president.
"This is something we should politicize," Obama said. "This is a political choice that we make."
Oregon officials said a 20-year-old man killed 13 people and injured at least 20 more in a shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, about 180 miles south of Portland.
During his 2008 presidential campaign, Obama made a surprise visit to Roseburg’s Keizer Iris Festival.
Obama has spoken in the wake of shooting tragedies on at least a dozen occasions, including the 2012 murders at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., and this past summer's killings at African-American church in Charleston, S.C.
