Obama calls for tougher gun laws after Colorado shooting

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says the Planned Parenthood shootings show the urgent need "to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war" for "people who have no business wielding them."

"Enough is enough," Obama said in a statement a day after a gunman killed three people at a Colorado clinic.

Obama said it's not known what motivated the shooter, but it's clear "more Americans and their families had fear forced upon them" — and that, the president said, "is not normal. We can't let it become normal."

The president said that if "we truly care about this — if we're going to offer up our thoughts and prayers again, for God knows how many times, with a truly clean conscience," then America must make it harder to get guns.
