Obama slams Senate for not acting on gun control after mass shooting


BY Associated Press June 21, 2016 at 1:02 PM EDT

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is denouncing the Senate’s failure to pass gun control measures in the aftermath of the mass shooting in Orlando, Florida.

Obama says on Twitter that the Senate failed the American people and that gun violence requires more than moment of silence. The White House has said previously that tweets from his account are from Obama himself.


White House spokesman Josh Earnest says the vote is a “a shameful display of cowardice” He told CNN on Tuesday that the Republican-led chamber’s blocking of four gun control proposals Monday does nothing to keep extremists from acquiring guns.

Earnest said lawmakers lament gun violence but “don’t do anything about it.” He said that while no bill can prevent all gun violence, “why wouldn’t we do more?”

HAHA, Barry be mad. Gun control is the only thing he hasn't gotten in his 7+ years as POTUS. He will continue his push until the day he leaves office.
This fight will never end my friends. We must train our children and grandchildren of the meaning of freedom and how free people should remain armed.

Why didn't the democrats vote for Cornyn's bill?

At least they would have gotten something, but once again, it's up to the Republicans to compromise, not the Democrats.
