2014 Oregon School Shooting Barack Obama

Obama shooting comment

10 Jun, 2014

Responding to a shooting at a high school in Oregon, in which a gunman killed a student and injured a teacher, Obama comments on his frustration at the inability of the government to pass stricter gun laws.

You know, the United States does not have a monopoly on crazy people. It’s not the only country that has psychosis. And yet, we kill each other in these mass shootings at rates that are exponentially higher than any place else. Well, what’s the difference? The difference is, is that these guys can stack up a bunch of ammunition in their houses.
