Obama in Tears Over Gun Control
US President Barack Obama was in tears while talking about gun violence in the US at a press conference on Tuesday. A number of Americans who have lost children in recent gun massacres surrounded the president as he unveiled his planned executive orders on gun control. One of the initiatives is to “bring the outdated background check system into the 21st century”. Another is to increase mental health treatment and reporting to the background check system. The president is also calling for more funding to research gun safety technology as well as better enforcement of existing gun laws.
