All of us share in President Obama's statement Friday afternoon about the tragedy in Connecticut: "Our hearts are broken today for the parents and grandparents, sisters and brothers of these little children. We have been through this too many times."
But eloquent words are not enough.
"Mr. Obama has not pushed for expanded gun control during his time in office," the New York Times just reported. "And he did not elaborate on any specific legislation he might seek in the wake of the shootings."
