Obama: ‘Notion’ that the Answer Is Make Sure More People ‘Are Similarly Armed to the Killer Defies Commonsense’

‘Those who defend the easy accessibility of assault weapons should meet these families and explain why that makes sense’

“This debate needs to change. It’s outgrown the old political stalemates. The notion that the answer to this tragedy would be to make sure that more people in a nightclub are similarly armed to the killer, defies commonsense. Those who defend the easy accessibility of assault weapons should meet these families and explain why that makes sense. They should meet with the Newtown families, some of whom Joe saw yesterday, whose children should now be finishing fifth grade, and why we think our liberty requires these repeated tragedies. That’s not the meaning of liberty.”
