Former President Obama has already called for gun control in the wake of the Wednesday South Florida school shooting that claimed a confirmed 17 lives and injured over a dozen others.
Obama’s pro-gun control tweet sent out on Thursday suggested that those opposed to a crackdown on Second Amendment rights don’t care about the country’s children.
“Caring for our kids is our first job,” Obama wrote. “And until we can honestly say that we’re doing enough to keep them safe from harm, including long overdue, common-sense gun safety laws that most Americans want, then we have to change.”
We are grieving with Parkland. But we are not powerless. Caring for our kids is our first job. And until we can honestly say that we're doing enough to keep them safe from harm, including long overdue, common-sense gun safety laws that most Americans want, then we have to change.

In recent years, the Left has replaced the term “gun control” with the more sanitized term “gun safety,” as referenced in Obama’s tweet.
During the former president’s tenure, he routinely used gun tragedies to push for gun control measures, most notably during a tear-filled press conference in 2016 where he was flanked by parents of school shooting victims: human props for his agenda-pushing.
And now that he’s finally out of the Oval Office, things have changed very little: After the Texas church shooting, the Obama called for a reduction of “violence and weaponry in our midst.”
