Not Normal

"I respect gun rights but the idea that, for example, we couldn't get a background check bill in to make sure that if you're going to buy a weapon you have to actually go through a rigorous process so that we know who you are, so you can't just walk up to the store and buy a semi-automatic weapon? It makes no sense," the president said, adding that Americans need to do some "soul searching" about why they are accepting senseless violence as the norm.
