"The shooter was apparently armed with a handgun and a powerful assault rifle," President Obama said in a statement. "This massacre is therefore a further reminder of how easy it is for someone to get their hands on a weapon that lets them shoot people in a school or in a house of worship or a movie theatre or in a nightclub. We have to decide if that's the kind of country we want to be. To actively do nothing is a decision as well."
