Obama: ‘Speeches Aren’t Enough’

“Now’s the time to turn that heartbreak into something real.”

(Weekly Standard) – President Obama called for action to be taken on gun control measures in a speech today at the White House, and said that “speeches aren’t enough.”

FAX BLAST SPECIAL: Don’t Let The Government Take Your Guns! Protect Your Second Amendment Rights!

“And that’s my attitude,” Obama said. “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. And now’s the time to turn that heartbreak into something real. It won’t solve every problem, there will still be gun deaths, there will still be tragedies, there will still be violence, there will still be evil. But we can make a difference, if, not just the activists here on the stage, but the general public, including responsible gun owners say, you know what, we can do better than this. We can do better to make sure that fewer parents have to endure the pain of losing a child to an act of violence.”
