Obama-Gun Control
Making perhaps his strongest case to date for gun-control, President Obama on Sunday said the U.S. cannot continue to accept mass shootings like the one seen at the Washington Navy Yard last week.

Speaking at a memorial service killed in last week’s shooting spree, the president again played the role of comforter-in-chief, a duty he’s assumed multiple times during his time in office.

But this time, Mr. Obama made clear that he and lawmakers must do more than grieve with shattered families.

“Our tears are not enough. Our words are not enough. And our prayers are not enough. If we really want to honor these 12 men and women … We’re going to have to change. We’re going to have to change,” Mr. Obama said, speaking at a memorial service at the Navy Yard, where 12 people were shot and killed by gunman Aaron Alexis last Monday.

The president was even more forceful in his remarks than he was in December, when he also made a plea for gun control in the wake of the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.
