President Barack Obama called the nine deaths in a Charleston, South Carolina, church shooting “particularly heartbreaking,” and suggested a greater focus on gun control was necessary in the wake of the tragedy.

“We as a people will have to reckon with the fact that this kind of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries,” Obama said. “It is within our power to do something about it.”  – CNN
