On Friday afternoon, President Barack Obama held a press conference to address the country on the elementary school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
"As a country, we have been through this too many times, whether it's a school in Newton, or a shopping mall in Oregon, a Temple in Wisconsin, a movie theater in Aurora, or a street corner in Chicago. These neighborhoods are our neighborhoods. These children are our children. And we're going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics."
