Obama Calls For ‘Meaningful Action’ To Prevent Tragic Shootings



Obama Calls For ‘Meaningful Action’ To Prevent Tragic Shootings

An emotional President Obama spoke out against the tragic shooting in Newtown, Connecticut on Friday afternoon, remembering the children and teachers who died in today’s tragedy. The president reflected on the nation’s high rate of massacres and called on lawmakers to take “meaningful action” to prevent these kind of massacres from taking place in the future. Preliminary reports indicate that at least 27 people, including 22 children were killed by a 24-year-old gunman.

“As a country, we have been through this too many times,” Obama said. “We’re going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this regardless of the politics.”
