Obama voices anger over Oregon shooting, urges gun control

US President Barack Obama voiced his anger and sadness after the country’s latest deadly shooting, this time at an Oregon community college, and made another impassioned plea for gun control legislation. “There has been another mass shooting in America,” a stony-faced Obama said in reaction to the shooting by a male gunman at Umpqua Community College in rural Roseburg, which left 10 people dead. My response here at this podium ends up being routine,” said the president, making his 15th statement on a mass shooting since taking office in 2009.
