In response to the video, U.S. President Barack Obama has issued a video response to those who petitioned. He responded by saying that he is clear of the loud response against the cause.
President Obama responded by saying that, “We hear you”. He further added that like rest of the Americans he has faith in 2nd amendment and it guarantees the right to carry arms. With that being said he appreciated the opinion of gun owners who are vocal about the Newtonn tragedy and wants steps to be taken to avoid any massacre as such.
President in his speech also stated that he has already called on Congress to take measures and pass legislation that will be supported by majority of the Americans.
While speaking, President Obama referenced the gun violence task force created by him and chaired by Vice President Biden.
