Former President Barack Obama issued a decision Thursday for more gun rules within the wake of the mass school shooting in Florida.
“We are not powerless. Caring for our kids is our first job,” Mr. Obamatweeted. “And until we can honestly say that we’re doing enough to keep them safe from harm, including long overdue, common-sense gun safety laws that most Americans want, then we have to change.”
His feedback got here not up to an hour after President Trump addressed the country and referred to as for more center of attention on mental-health answers to gun violence.
After the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012, Mr. Obama driven Congress for more background tests on gun purchases, an effort that the Senate rejected. He in large part gave up on gun law after that.
We are grieving with Parkland. But we don't seem to be powerless. Caring for our youngsters is our first task. And till we will truthfully say that we’re doing sufficient to stay them secure from hurt, together with lengthy past due, common sense gun protection laws that the majority Americans need, then we need to alternate.
