In case you missed it, President Obama delivered remarks on a shooting for the 14th time of his presidency today.

I've had to make statements like this too many times. Communities like this have had to endure tragedies like this too many times.

We don't have all the facts, but we do know that, once again, innocent people were killed in part because someone who wanted to inflict harm had no trouble getting their hands on a gun.

At some point, we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries.

This president tried to pass meaningful reform, but Congress let the nation down with a filibuster led by Republicans.
