Obama Says U.S. Has To ‘Do Something’ About Guns After Colorado Shooting

Share

WASHINGTON (Reuters) — President Barack Obama said on Saturday the United States needs to “do something” to make it harder for criminals to get guns after a shooting in Colorado Springs on Friday left three dead and nine injured.

“We have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them. Period,” Obama said in a statement. “Enough is enough.”

    And half the people who should be helping him do it are probably already thinking of ways to force everyone to buy guns or pay a fine.

    Make it illegal for blacks to own guns.

      That Colorado shooter was a pretty pale looking black guy.

        Blacks commit a disproportionate amount of gun violence so it makes sense for gun control laws to target blacks.

          The hardest working man in abortion shooting. I hope he does a lot of “soul” searching.

    He should have his Secret Service protectors stop carrying guns.

      With the incompetence of the Service in recent years, how the blithering Hell could you tell the difference?

      We should also disarm you.
      … once we work out what you’re actually armed with.
      It’s certainly not wit.

    A hundred people a day die by automobile. We need to do something about that too. Let’s ban anyone who appears mentally off, or is just weird from driving a car.

    I have often wondered how limiting the rights of the law abiding stops those intent of doing harm. That crazy dude in Colorado Springs and the gun happy Chicago cop didn’t care a rat’s butt about the law.

      Have you often wondered why the far more restrictive gun laws in the other advanced countries seem to result in far fewer gun shootings per capita than the U.S.? Have you often wondered about that?
