Obama went on a journey on Monday to the heart of the gun control controversy: Connecticut He stood upon a enthusiastic and roaring crowd to remember the tragedy that took the life of twenty elementary grade children and six educators who were slain down in the sandy hook school shooting that took place earlier this year in Newtown, Connecticut. He was fin to put the pressure on a non obedient congress to praise them with gun control law.
He spoke passionately in his voice that at certain points of his speech it was equivalent to the tone of the campaign rally. People from the University of Hartford and 3,100 other people were told that Obama will come to Connecticut to re-insure that the deaths from Newtown’s school shooting would not just go away; it is important to remind the fellow Americans how vital it is for them to speak loudly about their opinions on gun control. President Obama said, “If you’re an American who wants to do something to prevent more families from knowing the immeasurable anguish that these families here have known, then we have to act,” and “Now’s the time to get engaged. Now, it is the time for people to get involve. Now, it is the time to push back on fear, frustration, and misinformation. Now’s the time for everybody to make their voices heard, from every statehouse to the corridors of Congress.” Even after he spoke, there were threats to prevent gun control laws from even being pushed to a debate from the republicans of Capitol Hill.
According to sorces Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader, announced Monday that he would join at least 13 other Republicans who have vowed to block consideration of gun legislation passed by the Senate Judiciary Committee and assembled by the Democratic leadership. That effectively made the threatened filibuster a test of Republican unity. Mr. McConnell made this announcement when the senate returned from a recess and the struggle of over a new gun control law came upon a critical phase.
Mr Obama yet again visited Connecticut for a sad and emotional memorial soon there after the December 14th shooting of the new town school of sandy hooks; met again with the mourning families before his speech. After the speech about a dozen family memebers left with him on Air Force One to go to washington to state ther their case to congess this week.
