President Barack Obama, in a brief address to the nation, offered his condolences to those who lost loved ones in the elementary school shootings in Newtown, Conn., and said it is time to act to prevent similar tragedies.
"As a country we have been through this too many times," he said, ticking off recent shootings across the nation. "These neighborhoods are our neghborhoods, and these children are our children, and we're going to have to come together
to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics."

But they don’t all look like you.
I’m not in the mood for this... person.
He is coming after your guns. This is it that will get him cover.
But for my kids - armed Secret Service agents
Fetuses are our fetuses.
I must be confused....
Well, the First Manipulator has been heard from..."
I’m NEVER in the mood for “this person”.
It’s folks like him who are responsible for many of these mass shootings. He thinks he can disarm this country—which will never happen.
“They” (gun grabbers) just don’t get it.
All “gun free zones” are potential killing fields. When did we last here of a mass shooting at a place like the NRA convention, or a gun store, or any number of places where the shooter might think he would meet some resistance?
Another golden opportunity for the Driviler-in-Chief to campaign.
Yeah, just like he said Trayvon was “like his son” or whatever bullcrap. I don’t want to hear from him about this, as if it is somehow personal to him. Just like telling that Benghazi victim dad that they were going to seek justice for his son. His words are worthless.
I love how the all the news readers are so “concerned” about Obama because he was emotional. Just watched the Gov of CT handle the situation correctly. He maintained a professional but still sympathetic demeanor without breaking out in alligator tears. Just wait until tonight when half the media will be wringing their hands about the toll “all these shootings” are taking on the president.
He said he have to take meaningful steps to address this problem without regard to the politics of the situation.
If that is the case, then the solution is to arm absolutely everyone. The solution is to make the softest of all targets, schools, into impregnable fortresses.
In lieu of that, stop sending kids to schools where they are sitting ducks.
I am not going to give up my right to defend myself from psychopaths and terrorists because of the actions of psychopaths and terrorists.
If we give up our defenses, then we are defenseless, just as this school was.
This “working together” to prevent this is his code speak for gun control.
Who was responsible for that particular brainstorm, and what do you wanna bet this will be the last thing the media wants to discuss?
Any bets the shooter was “one of his”, too?
I’m with you. I can not stand to listen to him he could care less about any of the people just another crisis for him
An appeal to the mob.
