‘Mass murder like this does not happen’ outside U.S.

June 18, 2015

President Obama used his national podium to express personal grief about the South Carolina church shootings that left nine dead, and then raise the specter of gun control, saying such “mass murder” just doesn’t happen in other countries.

Obama first said he and his wife knew killed Emanuel African Episcopal Church Pastor and state Sen. Clementa Pinckney personally, as well as several in the congregation.

“And to say our thoughts and prayers are with them and their families and their communities doesn’t say enough to convey the sadness … and the anger that we feel,” Obama said.

He then referenced the historical aspects of the predominantly black church, and its role in combating slavery and furthering freedom. Shortly after, Obama brought up the gun control.

“I’ve had to make statements like this too many times,” he said. “We don’t have all the facts [but we do know] someone who wanted to inflict harm had no trouble getting his hand on a gun. At some point, we’ll have to recognize that mass murder like this does not happen in other countries … with this frequency.”

Obama then called on Americans to “acknowledge” that fact and start to “shift how we think about gun violence collectively.’
