Obama: "Something in America has to fundamentally change."
Recalling the shooting rampage that killed 20 first graders as the worst day of his presidency, President Barack Obama on Sunday pledged to put his "full weight" behind legislation aimed at preventing gun violence. In an interview with NBC’s "Meet the Press," Obama voiced skepticism about the National Rifle Association’s proposal to put armed guards in schools following the Dec. 14 tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.
I’ve served in the U.S. Navy for 20 years, I’ve walked my post in a military manor, I’ve defended the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic I’ve signed an oath to give my life for this great nation, I’m now a civilian, a husband, father, grandfather, disabled veteran, taxpayer, voter and patriot. I will not put down my arms in the face of tyranny and a dictator.
