As President Obama noted, we can't end all gun violence, but we can reduce it. Making an effort to save lives makes sense, doing nothing doesn't. Seeing the president speak out and demand action is a step forward, but it's also up to us to pressure our representatives to follow through and do something about all the weapons of war used against our loved ones, among other common sense steps.

Obama also answered questions on The Boehner's Plan BS and the so-called "fiscal cliff" negotiations.
