Obama Eyes ‘Common Sense’ US Gun Control

President Barack Obama says it’s time for US lawmakers to tackle the divisive issue of gun control in hopes of preventing tragedies like the Tucson shooting spree that killed six people.

In an opinion column published Sunday in the Arizona Daily Star, the main Tucson newspaper, Obama argued that improving the system of background checks on gun purchasers should be the first “common sense” step that neither side of the gun debate should oppose.

“I know that every time we try to talk about guns, it can reinforce stark divides,” Obama wrote in a rare public commentary on the gun control issue.

“However, I believe that if common sense prevails, we can get beyond wedge issues and stale political debates to find a sensible, intelligent way” to make the nation “a safer, stronger place.”

Tucson was the location of a January 8 shooting spree that killed six people, including a federal judge and a nine-year-old girl.-[source]
