Saying society would be judged by how well it fosters its children, the president said: "We're all parents. And they're all our children. This is our first task: caring for our children.
Obama asked whether America was doing enough and bluntly concluded: "No. And this must change."
"We can't tolerate this any longer," he declared. "These tragedies must end."
The president challenged the audience asking: "Are we prepared to say that we're powerless in the face of such carnage? That the politics are too hard? Are we prepared to say that such violence visited on our children year after year after year is the price of our freedom?"
He vowed to "use whatever power this office holds to engage our citizens ... to save another child or another parent or another town" the anguish of Newtown.

Obama at Memorial promises more gun controls and bans
As the Dems like to say never let a crisis go to waste and in the wake of Sandy Hook where a mentally deranged man kills his own mother, steals her legally brought guns to go on a shooting spree, Obama uses the situation not to just comfort but hints at more gun control. It's Obama so knowing his method he is going to go big on taking away Americans gun rights.
