President Obama On Latest School Shooting: “This Has Become Routine”

Yesterday evening, President Obama held a press conference to address the latest mass shooting, this time at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon. Yesterday afternoon, 10 people were killed by a gunman now identified as 26-year-old Chris Harper Mercer. (Mercer was also killed after exchanging gunfire with police.) Obama, clearly fed the fuck up with Washington’s inaction when it comes to gun regulations, went off on how sadly, infuriatingly routine this entire song and dance has become, from the shooting itself, to the media’s coverage, to his remarks, to the NRA and gun lobby’s insistence that we need MORE guns, not less.
