He sounded fed up and angry at the latest episode of the kind of senseless killings that happened yesterday at a community college in Oregon. These things have become routine, including the responses of those who oppose any kinds of restrictions on gun ownership.
He appealed to the media to publicize the numbers of people who have been killed by terrorist attacks compared with those killed by gun violence and asks why we are so obsessed with preventing the low numbers of the former but do nothing to prevent the high numbers of the latter. He pointed out that in every tragic situation where multiple people die, we take steps to prevent recurrences except in the case of gun-enabled murders.
It is indeed crazy that Congress has even denied funding to the Centers for Disease Control for even just researching and publishing data on firearms violence.
Bernie Sanders backs Obama’s call for action and sensible gun control legislation.
