Obama Blames Americans, Not The Gunman, For Oregon College Shooting

Following the mass shooting on the campus of Umpqua Community College that targeted Christians and took the lives of 10 people and injured 7 others, President Barack Obama could not resist blaming the shooting on the state of America's gun laws and calling for more control.

Using the tragedy for political gain, Obama gave a speech, where according to CNN he made the following statements blaming America rather than the shooter for the deaths in Roseburg, Oregon:

"We are the only advanced country on Earth that sees these kinds of mass shootings every few months. This is a political choice that we make, to allow this to happen every few months in America. We collectively are answerable to those families who lose their loved ones.

"Each time this happens, I am going to say we are going to have to do something about it. And we are going to have to change our laws.

"I would ask the American people to think about how they can get our government to change these laws and to save lives, and to let young people grow up. That will require a change of politics on this issue."

For about 83% of his nearly 13-minute, 1,304-word speech, Obama focused on increasing gun control and did not blame the gunman himself for his actions. The closest he got was to say that the shooter had "sickness in (his) mind" before immediately implying that our country doesn't do as much as other advanced countries in treating mental illness.

Do you think we as Christians should look at the hearts of individuals who commit these atrocities rather than at the control of firearms if we truly want to prevent these mass shootings from happening? Do you think a Christian revival would have a greater effect than a gun reduction?
