Obama pushes for gun control after Planned Parenthood shooting

After a gunman opened fire at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood on Friday, killing three people and injuring several others, President Obama urged the nation to increase gun control over “the easy accessibility of weapons of war.”

“This is not normal,” the president said in a statement Saturday. “We can’t let it become normal.”

“If we truly care about this — if we’re going to offer up our thoughts and prayers again, for God knows how many times, with a truly clean conscience — then we have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them,” Mr. Obama added. “Enough is enough.”

The accused shooter, 57-year-old Robert Lewis Dear of North Carolina, is in custody after a five-hour standoff with police at the Planned Parenthood facility. Three people, including a police officer, died from the attack, and five other officers and four civilians were wounded.
