Obama said.


“Shame on us if we’ve forgotten,”  “I haven’t forgotten those kids.”


There’s absolutely no reason why we can’t get this done.  But the reason we're talking about here today is because it's not done until it’s done.  And there are some powerful voices on the other side that are interested in running out the clock or changing the subject or drowning out the majority of the American people to prevent any of these reforms from happening at all.  They’re doing everything they can to make all our progress collapse under the weight of fear and frustration, or their assumption is that people will just forget about it."

Tears aren't enough.  Expressions of sympathy aren't enough.  Speeches aren't enough.  We've cried enough.  We've known enough heartbreak.  What we're proposing is not radical, it's not taking away anybody's gun rights.  It's something that if we are serious, we will do.
