President Obama Responds To Senate Gun Control Vote

"This is a shameful day for Washington."

Today, in a 54-to-46 vote, the Senate voted against a compromised proposal that would have expanded background checks on firearm sales. This, despite the fact that the vast majority of Americans, including card-carrying NRA members, supported the measure. The parents of many of the children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, four months ago sat in the room as the Senate voted. Above, President Obama reacts to the vote and has some strong words for those politicians who voted against the proposal, calling it “a shameful day for Washington.” But he’s also clear that this fight is not over. (The playlist above breaks Obama’s remarks into two parts.)
