President Obama In Tears During Speech Announcing Executive Action on Gun Control.




Obama cries for gun control, wipes away tears as he calls for new gun measures. Obama tears up during emotional gun control speech. 

President Barack Obama teared up Tuesday during an emotional speech on gun control at the White House.
Obama spoke to lay out the rationale behind his recently announced slate of executive actions on guns in an emotional speech, surrounded by gun control advocates and family members of victims of gun violence.

"Every time I think about those kids, it gets me mad. And by the way, it happens on the streets of Chicago every day," Obama said.

"We do have to feel a sense of urgency about it," Obama said.
He added: "Because people are dying and the constant excuses for inaction no longer suffice. That's why we're here today. Not to debate the last mass shooting, but to do something to try and prevent the next one."

The president laid out the specifics of his plan, explaining the newly clarified rules that narrow the types of individual "private" gun sellers that can sell guns without subjecting their buyers to a background checks, and noting that the FBI would hire 230 new agents to help process background checks.
