Obama says ‘it’s about the families’ after Oregon meeting

ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) — President Barack Obama, faced with objections over his meeting Friday with people who were wounded in an Oregon shooting, held to his observation that something must be done about deadly gun crimes. But given the freshness of the week-old tragedy, he said, “Today, it’s about the families.”

“I’ve got some adamant feelings about this,” Obama said, adding that these incidents always be similar him that anybody could be the victim.

At Umpqua Community College in Roseburg last week, a gunman killed eight students and a teacher before using the weapon to take his life. On Friday, fatal shootings were reported at colleges in Arizona and Texas.

“We’re going to have to come together to a country to see how we can prevent these issues from taking place” so regularly, Obama told reporters following the approximately hour-long, private meeting with grieving relatives of those who were killed and injured. “But today, it’s about the families, their grief and the love we feel for them.”

The White House did not say how many people Obama met with.
