Yesterday, not less than 10 people were killed and 20 more injured in a shooting that took place at a community college in south-western Oregon, USA. The shooter who was identified as a male went into multiple class rooms as classes started at Umpqua Community College and opened fire, killing several students.
United States President Barack Obama voiced his anger and sadness after the country’s latest deadly shooting, and once again begged for better gun legislation in the country.
“There has been another mass shooting in America,” a stony-faced Obama said in reaction to the shooting by a male gunman at Umpqua Community College in rural Roseburg, which left 10 people dead.
“Somehow this has become routine,” said the president. “We become numb to this.”
“The reporting is routine. My response here at this podium ends up being routine,” said the president, making his 15th statement on a mass shooting since taking office in 2009.
“And what’s become routine, of course, is the response of those who oppose any kind of common sense gun legislation.”
“Prayers are not enough,” he further stated. “We can actually do something about it, but we’re going to have to change our laws.”
