Obama Exploits Kalamazoo Shootings to Demand More Gun Laws

WASHINGTON TIMES — President Obama called local officials in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Monday morning to pledge federal resources for their probe of a mass shooting, and said the tragedy highlights the need for more gun laws.

“Clearly we’re going to need to do more if we’re going to keep innocent Americans safe,” Mr. Obama told the nation’s governors at a White House meeting. “I’ve got to assume that all of you are just as tired as I am of seeing this stuff happen in your states.”

Mr. Obama said he took executive actions on gun control earlier this year “that will make it harder for dangerous people like this individual [in Kalamazoo] to buy a gun.” But he called on the governors “to partner and think about what we can do in a common-sense way, in a bipartisan way, without some of the ideological rhetoric that so often surrounds that issue.”
