Obama: GOP ‘Drowning Out’ the Voices of the American People on Gun Control

by Andrew Johnson

President Obama warned that the GOP was “running out the clock” and “drowning out” the American people on the issue of gun control at a White House event this afternoon. “Their assumption is that people will just forget about [Newtown],” Obama said in his speech alongside the families of gun-violence victims. He accused those “powerful voices on the other side” of trying to make the push for stricter gun-control measures “collapse under the weight of fear and frustration.”

President Obama also called guns “weapons of war” during his speech.
