During his two terms as President, Obama has delivered many somber speeches like the one embedded in this post. That's because if someone wants to shoot a load of people somewhere in America, they can acquire a gun with incredible ease.
Dylann Roof recently did this prior to shooting and killing nine people in a church in Charleston, South Carolina. So with depressing consistency, Obama took to the podium in the White House press room to address the nation. And once again, he described the gross anomaly of America, the only advanced country in the world where this sort of thing happens. On this occasion, his words were slightly stronger than those spoken after Sandy Hook and Santa Barbara. But then they would be, now that the bodies can be stacked two stories high.
Yet at this point in the game, with his second term coming to an end, I'd expect him to call the members of congress who have buried his gun control bills a bunch of murderous cunts, to be quite honest.
