President Obama was quite angry after the Senate voted down the gun background check compromise.
“There were no coherent arguments as to why we wouldn’t do this. It came down to politics,” Obama said, adding that Democrats were also responsible for voting down the bill.
“They caved to pressure, and they started looking for an excuse — any excuse — to vote no.”
“All in all, it was a pretty shameful day for Washington.”
But Obama added that he was not done fighting for gun control.
“I see this as just Round One,” Obama said. “This effort is not over.”
