Obama Speaks The Blunt Truth: It Is Too Easy For People To Carry Out Mass Shootings

While speaking at the White House today, President Obama delivered a blunt truth that many Republicans don’t want to hear. The President that it is too easy for people to carry out mass shootings and we need to make it harder for would-be killers to get guns.

The President said while a delivering a statement about the San Bernardino shooting from the Oval Office:

We just can’t just leave it to the professionals to deal the problem of these kinds of horrible killings. We all have a part to play, and I do think that as the investigation moves forward it is going to be important for all of us, including our legislatures, to see what we can do to make sure that when individuals decide that they want to do somebody harm, we’ll make it a little harder for them to do it. Because right now, it’s just too easy.

We’re going to have to, I think, search ourselves as a society to make sure that we can take basic that would make it harder, not impossible, but harder for individuals to get access to weapons.

President Obama said that it might take some time to get to the bottom of the motive behind the San Bernardino shooting. It is too early to know whether the motive was terrorism or workplace violence, but the President made the broader point that it is too easy for mass murders to carry out their plans.

Obama spoke a blunt truth. Instead of getting caught up in speculation about motives, the American people need to be putting together the big picture and asking themselves why mass shootings are happening in the United States more frequently than anywhere else?

The President was correct. One of the main reasons why there are more of these incidents in the US is that there are more deadly military grade weapons available to almost anyone who wants them.

President Obama was blunt and honest about the larger cultural problem. It is now up to the voters to demand a solution.
