[Video] Obama Possibly Hints at New Gun Control Effort During Statement on Navy Shooting
Below find the president’s comments on the recent Navy Shooting at the Navy Shipyard in Washington, DC.
The end of the president’s comments could indicate a renewed push for gun control.
We are confronting yet another mass shooting and today it happened on a military installation, in our nation’s capital.
It’s a shooting that targeted our military and civilian personnel. These are men and women, who were going to work, doing their job, protecting all of us.
They are patriots. And they know the dangers of serving abroad, but today they faced the unimaginable violence… that.. they wouldn’t have expected here at home.
So, we offer our gratitude to the Navy, and local law enforcement, federal authorities, and the doctors who responded with skill and bravery.
I made it clear to my team that I want the investigation to be seamless so that federal and local authorities are working together and as this investigation moves forward we will do everything in our power to make sure whoever carried out this cowardly act is held responsible.
In the meantime we send our thoughts and prayers to all at the Navy Yard who have been touched by this tragedy. We thank them for their service. We stand with the families of those who have been harmed. They’re gonna need our love and support and as we learn more about the courageous Americans who died today, their lives, their families, their patriotism, we will honor their service to the nation they helped to make great and obviously we’re gonna be investigating thoroughly what happened, as we do so many of these shootings, sadly, that have happened and do everything that we can to try and prevent them.
Of course, this administration has proven in the last year that they believe the solution to preventing mass shootings is to restrict gun ownership among law abiding gun owners. Is this a prelude to a renewed federal gun control effort?
