视频:奥巴马公布控枪政策 忆枪下亡魂落泪

美国总统奥巴马周二在白宫发表全国讲话,正式推出五项枪支管制相关的新政策,并呼吁国会也要有所作为。奥巴马猛轰国会与共和党总统参选人对其管制枪枝措施之抵制与违宪曲解。奥巴马指出,他的名字“并未在选票上“。

An emotional US President Barack Obama has unveiled new restrictions on gun purchases, saying the "constant excuses for inaction" have to stop.
Wiping away tears, the president recalled the Sandy Hook primary school shooting in 2012 where 20 children and six adults were killed.

His executive actions, without Congress approval, widen background checks on potential gun buyers.
But the National Rifle Association said it would fight Mr Obama's measures.
And the leader of the House of Representatives, the Republican Paul Ryan, said the plans were certain to be challenged in the courts.
"His words and actions amount to a form of intimidation that undermines liberty," he said.
Meanwhile, sales of guns in the US appear to have risen, amid speculation in recent weeks that the White House was going to tighten the law.
Earlier, the president announced the law change at the White House, while surrounded by survivors and relatives of victims of shootings.
"The gun lobby may be holding Congress hostage right now, but they can't hold America hostage," Mr Obama said.

inaction:不作为
