WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama is calling on Americans to raise their voices against the gun violence that has rattled the nation several times during his time in office, saying it "falls upon us to make it different."
Obama spoke at a memorial service Sunday for the 12 men and women killed in the Washington Navy Yard last week. The president and first lady Michelle Obama also visited with the victims' families.
Obama says it has become clear that change will not come from politicians in Washington, who have been unable or unwilling to change the nation's gun laws even when tragedy strikes the capital city. Instead, Obama says, change will have to come the only way it ever has -- from people demanding action.
