President Barack Obama visited Orlando, where there was the largest in the country's history a massacre.
Orlando doctors continue to operate on the wounded. Several people remain in critical condition and 16 in serious or stable. Orlando came the President of the United States. To spontaneous memorial Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden laid flowers at it. Spoke to victims and relatives of victims. And the media, Obama said that the US urgently needs to limit the trafficking of weapons.
Obama: "Those who defend the easy availability of firearms, have to meet these families where the children were left orphans. Let them explain why they believe that our freedom allows for the repetition of such tragedies. This is not the meaning of freedom."
To ban semi-automatic weapons - a long-standing proposal of the Democrats. From assault rifles Omar Matin shot visitors the gay-club "Pulse". However, any proposal to limit the trafficking of weapons over and over again to negate the Republicans. And against the gun lobby.
Trump and Clinton agreed that we need to ban to sell arms to people from "the list neltume citizens," those who are under suspicion of the FBI due to possible sympathy for terrorists: under 2 million names. Among them was Omar Matin. However, if he has not sold the rifle in the store, he would easily be able to buy it from a private owner. In the hands of citizens more weapons than the US population: 357 million barrels. In the Senate is far from unity. Simultaneously with the Democrats, the Republicans introduced a bill that will force the FBI to obtain a court order before you can limit a person's right to buy weapons, even if he appears in the lists of the security services as a potential threat.
