And rightly so. President Obama has given so many of these speeches that, according to his statement, Americans are sadly taking these shootings as “routine.” But this speech on the most recent shooting in Oregon seems somewhat different. You can sense the anger, the frustration in the president as he called out Congress on its refusal to do anything yet again as more Americans are killed.
“This has become routine. The reporting is routine, my response here at this podium has become routine,” the President said.
The president spoke to the American people, urging them to vote for leaders who will lead and get sensible gun laws enacted in this country.
