Comic: Gun control

What Americans do... and don't do

Speaking on Saturday from the White House, President Barack Obama called the shooting of 19 people at a public event called by Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson a "tragedy for our entire country."

Six people were killed in the shooting, including federal Judge John Roll and nine-year-old Christina Greene. Also killed were Dorothy Morris, Dorwin Stoddard, Phyllis Scheck and Gabe Zimmerman.

During his brief remarks, Obama said, "What Americans do at times of tragedy is to come together and support each other."

What too many of them don't do, no matter how awful the carnage, is support gun control legislation.

“It’s not surprising that today Gabby was doing what she always does—listening to the hopes and concerns of her neighbors.”
