Vitter to Obama: Focus on Reducing Root Cause of Violence


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator David Vitter today made the following comment in advance of President Obama's scheduled announcement of his gun control proposals tomorrow.

"The top two questions I'll be asking about the Obama anti-gun proposals are simple: Do they infringe on the second amendment, a fundamental individual right, in any way? And will they be truly effective in reducing violence?" Vitter said. "If Obama himself asked these questions, I think we'd be hearing a lot more about school security, mental health intervention, and voluntary anti-violence standards for Hollywood and its video game industry."
