DENVER (Reuters) - President Barack Obama used a campaign stop in Colorado on Wednesday to call for an end to "senseless violence" across the country, appealing to Americans to focus on ways to stop it.
Referring to the shootings at a movie theater in Colorado and at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin in recent weeks, as well as last year's shooting of former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and others in Arizona, Obama stopped short of calling for gun control but said concerted action was needed.
"We've got to put an end to this kind of senseless violence, whether it's in Aurora, whether it's in Oak Creek, whether it's in Tucson, whether it's in cities all across America where too many lives are cut short," he said in Denver.

We should just outlaw senselessness altogether and America will become a land of golden roads and rainbows.
Ever the crafty politician, 0bama didn’t call for an end to senseless violence in Chicago, Illinois; one of the few places in the civilized world where senseless violence actually has a sizable constituency.
As if anybody cares about Hussein’s bloviations.
I totally agree. Tell Barry and Hillary to stop the ATF selling American guns to inner city, Mexican, and Honduran gangs. That would go a long way.
Chi-Congo? I guess it must be paradise there since he didn’t mention the murder capitol of the US.
I know what will work, abolish the 22nd amendment, the 2 amendment and mandate martial law.
Versus what other type of violence?
Words, just words.
/Can’t he just wave his hands?
My vote will help end Barrys senseless administration.
As opposed to the “sensible” violence of abortion and euthanasia, both of which he thinks are really cool.
That phrase sounds so foolish to me. I mean, as long as I’m committing sensible violence, Obama is okay with that?
I think it’s sensible to say that Marxists are a threat to the country and deserve a whupping to teach them a lesson. Hey, it’s okay, because it’s not senseless, right?
Talk to your buddy Rahm about "senseless violence".
Hey O'crappy, tell that to YOUR union thugs, YOUR SIEU supporters, YOUR muslim brotherhood, YOUR race baiters like Al "more pride than brains" Sharpton, and YOUR Ocuppy Wall Street cretins. 99.99% of all violence is perpetrated by YOUR communist and muslim comrades. Like the frickin violence problem is evenly distributed among communists, muslims and patriotic Christian Americans alike. FU POS.
Non stop Saul Alinsky deception from this POS. Every single thing out of his mouth is a decpetion to further his despicable agenda.
Let’s have an end to this senseless presidency.
So reading between the lines ... is he calling for more “sensible violence”?
If I'm John Daley I'm saying "Really, BO?".
What side of senseless is you vaporizing US citizens and others with drones in sand countries?
If your senseless better?
There are too many democRats in those places to end senseless violence.
I am calling for an end to senseless government.
This is the same clown that called upon his supporters to get in people’s faces that disagree with his mess and bring guns to the fight!
I agree. We should outlaw senseless violence. ;-)
My idea of senseless vilolence is handing a ton of weapons to criminals just like he and holder did with Fast and Furious.
IOW, Repeal Obamacare and throw Zero’s ass out of office.
Thanks Free ThinkerNY.
Didn't think so.
What about the senseless violence against nascent life, jackass?
Note that the huge numbers of killings in Chicago didn’t get him out there talking about this. He likes it, it will be a crisis he sure won’t let go to waste.
An armed free citizenry will help end senseless violence.
The death penalty (public hanging preferable) used expeditiously will help.
Throwing illegal thug aliens out of the country will help.
Eliminating God-hating public officials and honoring “In God We Trust” which is emblazoned on are coinage would be the best help.
I’m all for bulldozing down mosques, declaring “islam” illegal, and deporting all who disagree a step in the right direction, also.
Anyone have some ideas?
No mention of Ft. Hood. I guess that makes sense to him.
How many of these spree shooters had been under the “supervision” of a “mental health professional” (Loughner, Aurora shooter), on a watch list (heard the temple shooter was; not seen confirmed)?
Geez, he’s absolutely useless.
They better care. To be allowable, violence must be approved by the Emperor of the US.
