Obama in emotional plea for gun bill vote in Congress
[link to www.bbc.co.uk]

US President Barack Obama appeared to fight back tears as he urged lawmakers to vote on gun control legislation that appears to be stalling in Congress.

Speaking in Connecticut where 26 people died in a December school massacre, Mr Obama said citizens must demand action.

Opinion polls have shown a majority of Americans support a ban on assault weapons and other gun control measures.

But gun rights groups, including the National Rifle Association, have been lobbying politicians against the bill.

"The day Newtown happened was the toughest day of my presidency," Mr Obama said in his speech at Hartford, not far from Newtown, scene of the mass shooting four months ago.

"But I've got to tell you, if we don't respond to this, that'll be a tough day for me too."
Worth fighting for?

The Associated Press news agency reports there were tears in Mr Obama's eyes as he described Newtown parent Nicole Hockley, who has said every night she asks her six-year-old son Dylan to come to her in her dreams so she can see him again.

President Barack Obama

Gun group urges more guns in schools

"If there's even one thing we can do to prevent a father from having to bury his child, isn't that worth fighting for?" Mr Obama asked, amid repeated standing ovations from the crowd.

The Democratic president called for a vote on his three gun legislation priorities - strengthening background checks on gun buyers, limiting the size of ammunition magazines to 10 rounds, and a ban on assault weapons.

But the US Senate recently ditched the proposed ban on assault weapons and on high-capacity magazines, saying there was not enough support for the measure.

On Monday, the president said curbing gun violence was more important than partisan politics.

"Connecticut, this is not about me," Mr Obama said. "This is not about politics.

"This is about doing the right thing for all the families who are here that have been torn apart by gun violence."...50% article at link.

If the pollsters only poll MSNBC low-information voters maybe. Obama is always saying the "majority" agrees with him on everything. I call bullshit x infinity.

Re: Obama in emotional plea for gun bill vote in Congress
That piece by the BBC is complete trash.

They make out like the only reason gun legistlation isnt passed is because of a) republicans b) corrupt lobbyists.

Isn't the senate dem controlled? Have a vote if they do, surely they will win. Or maybe the bill has to pass through the house first.

I'm getting pretty tired of reading about how republicans are the ones to blame. Everyone in congress represents the views of the people, whether they are left or right and if they want / don't want something that should be respected. These BS pieces by 'respected' 'authority' news sites are utter garbage. What's sad is a lot of Brits read the BBC as gospel and love Obama and love his tears and just think that republicans are evil. Should of seen the face of one girl who I said I was repub to. She thought automatically; why do you hate black people? LOL so far gone its not even funnypigchef
