His call for more gun control was coupled with calls to support the Mike Bloomberg-affiliated organization Everytown for Gun Safety.
On National Gun Violence Awareness Day, let’s honor the victims of gun violence – and do what we can to prevent even more tragedies.
Keep using your voice to call for change, keep voting, keep urging Congress to take action. And support the work of organizations like @Everytown…

Twitter user @TXGunRights responded to Obama’s tweet by posting, “Man who drone bombed American citizens, weddings, funerals, and schools lectures on gun violence.”

Twitter user @KCPayTreeIt pointed to President Biden, referring to him as Obama’s “guy,” and asked Obama to quit talking about “gun violence” when Biden left stockpiles of weaponry in Afghanistan that have been seized by the Taliban and left our Southern border unsecured.
