A SNEAK PEAK: Excerpts Of President Obama’s Remarks On Gun Violence

President Barack Obama will address the nation on Tuesday regarding the need to push for stricter gun control guidelines. Below is a sneak peak of the President’s prepared remarks:

 

“Some back in Washington are already floating the idea that they might use political stunts to prevent votes on any of these reforms. Think about that.  They’re not just saying they’ll vote  “no” on ideas that almost all Americans support.  They’re saying they won’t allow any votes on them at all.  They’re saying your opinion doesn’t matter.  And that’s not right.”

 

“I’ve also heard some in the press suggest that what happens to gun violence legislation in Congress this week will be a political victory or defeat for me.  You know what?  This isn’t about me.  And it shouldn’t be about politics.  This is about doing the right thing for families like yours that have been torn apart by gun violence, and families going forward.”
