President Barack Obama said Tuesday that despite his executive actions bypassing Congress on guns, lawmakers still need to address the issue.
“Congress still needs to act,” Obama said from the White House, surrounded by victims of gun violence and their families. “The folks in this room will not rest until Congress does. Because once Congress gets on board with common-sense gun safety measures, we can reduce gun violence a whole lot.”
“But we also can’t wait,” Obama added. “Until we have the Congress that’s in line with the majority of Americans, there are actions within my legal authority that we can take to help reduce gun violence and save more lives.”
