Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, spoke to a group of 10,000 people in Tucson Arizona. Saunders, who has been criticized by some as being weak on gun control, spoke in favor of background checks and other measures that can possibly cut down on the frequency of mass shootings in this country.
“We are tired of condolences and we are tired of just prayers. We are tired and we are embarrassed in picking up the paper or turning on the TV and seeing children in elementary schools slaughtered and young people on college campuses shot.
I think the vast majority of the American people want us to move forward in sensible ways that keep guns out of the hands of people who should not have them and cut down on these senseless murders that we see every week.”
