Former President Barack Obama called for stricter gun control in the aftermath of mass shootings in Texas, Ohio and Chicago over the weekend. 53 people were shot in Obama's hometown of Chicago, where gun control laws are already restrictive. Seven of the Chicago victims died.

"We are not helpless here," Obama said in a statement on Twitter. "And until all of us stand up and insist on holding public officials accountable for changing our gun laws, these tragedies will keep happening."

In a not-so-subtle jab at President Donald Trump, Obama called on Americans to "soundly reject language coming out of the mouths of any of our leaders that feeds a climate of fear and hatred or normalizes racist sentiments." Obama, who turned 58 on Sunday, Aug. 4, didn't name a particular leader.

Obama said the El Paso shooting, that left 22 people dead, followed a "dangerous trend" of violence motivated by racist ideologies. He called on law enforcement and internet platforms to shut down websites, such as 8chan message board, that influence hate groups.

Network provider Cloudflare dropped 8chan from the network's servers on Monday. 8chan - not to be confused with 4chan - provided a platform for white supremacists. In a statement on Monday, Cloudflare said it dropped 8chan after one of the mass shooters uploaded his manifesto before going on a shooting spree on Saturday.

Cloudflare CEO Matthew Prince said the anonymous internet forum's "lawlessness" had caused "multiple tragic deaths."

Trump paid tribute to the victims in Texas, Ohio and Chicago in a statement on Monday.

"We must honor the sacred memory of those we have lost by acting as ONE PEOPLE. Open wounds cannot heal if we are divided. We must seek real, bipartisan solutions that will truly make America safer and better for all."

He added: "The First Lady and I join all Americans in praying and grieving for the victims, their families, and the survivors. We will stand by their side FOREVER!"

In related news, famed Astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson apologized for a tweet he wrote after outraged social media users accused him of minimizing the mass shootings.

In the past 48hrs, the USA horrifically lost 34 people to mass shootings.

On average, across any 48hrs, we also lose…

500 to Medical errors
300 to the Flu
250 to Suicide
200 to Car Accidents
40 to Homicide via Handgun

Often our emotions respond more to spectacle than to data.

After the backlash on social media, Tyson wrote on Facebook, "My intent was to offer objectively true information that might help shape our conversations and reactions to preventable ways we die."

"I got this one wrong," he added.

    45 will come for the death toll in Chicago to spite Pres. Obama. Neil "Cleveland Brown" De Assy go sit down Sir.

  • Scromes1212

    Your more likely to get struck by lightning then get shot in a mass shooting so I get his point. And why didn't Obama make new gun laws if he so concerned smh

  • chaisun

    Getting really tired of them not acknowledging the real problem, white men and their enabling white women. They have no problem separating themselves out when there’s something going on in our community but now it’s an “American” issue. Whites have had so much time, hundreds of years to not hate us and other people of color. They’re not interested in that. They’re not going to change and the sooner we realize that the better.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So when is Trump going to fulfill his campaign promise to send in the feds to Chicago and clean up sh!t?

  • Renee26

    I'll shoot anybody that tries to take my guns

    Why didn’t he do something when he was president.. he was to focus on letting trannys in the bathroom with children

  • dontgetblocked

    I wish he would shut the hell up! He didn't do anything during his ratchet presidency. He looks like the feminine idiot that he is by speaking out now. He was more worried about gay marriage not domestic terrorism.

  • ImReallyCaitlynNotMelania

    Well Obama put a bill in place right after the Sandy Hook shooting to block people with severe mental health problems from buying guys but Trump signed a bill to revoke it.

  • ImReallyCaitlynNotMelania

    I wish you would shut the keyboard up! And 45 is? GTFOOH. 45 is too afraid to give these horrific shooting a name. WHITE NATIONALIST TERRORISM. The idiot got Dayton, OH confused with Toledo, OH.

  • dazja

    Stop trolling

  • Jesse

    In 2017, Trump rolled back an Obama era regulation that made it harder for people with mental health to buy guns.

    And btw, the House passed common sense gun safety legislation, HR 8, and HR 112. But Moscow Mitch McConnell won't allow a vote in the Senate on either bill.

  • Jesse

    He did. But Trump rolled back the regulation like the envious hating pu##y that he is.

  • Scromes1212

    That wasn't a ban it was a bandaid smh and Trump blocked it cause to access of information not guns. Obama could have forced a bill on gun laws if he wanted to but he didn't. Plain and simple.

  • Undecided

    I'm for gun control 100% when it's implemented at these police departments FIRST since they love gunning down unarmed black men.

  • Scromes1212

    The bill was going to allow the national database to see who gets federal aid for mental illness. And it would block them from buying a firearm. It would have effected about 100000 people. But it only used the ss database to make its decision not actual health records. It would have helped a bit but he could have done a lot more if he felt this strongly about it.

    Criminals will still get them.

    I went to a gun show earlier this year and could only SMH when I saw 2 young men coming out with long carrying cases for their new assault rifles. Their pants were sagging below their knees, so they had to use 1 hand to hold up their pants and the other to carry their new toys. Nobody could tell me those 2 were functioning members in society. But they passed the background check nonetheless.

    Then you have the suburban school shooters who often take their parents legally obtained weapons.

    True but even if they take them off the market the criminals will turn to the "black" market

    Population US: 320,000,000
    Murders (all weapons except automobiles): 17,000

    Gun law: Federal 1986 ban on fully automatic weapons (limited exceptions); various laws by state

    The shooting is largely sequestered to certain neighborhoods and is mostly done by gang bangers who are aided by illegal gun purchases from bright red Indiana.

    I no longer live in Chicago, but I visit as often as I can to see my people - I'm from the south side and my old neighborhood is full of black folks and doesn't have shootings (fingers crossed). Not to mention, the Chicago loop is still full of tourists, both domestic and international. I live in Europe now, and when I meet a European who doesn't have a stick in their ass, they gush about how beautiful the city is.

    Now...there are plenty of problems in Chicago, no doubt. Corruption and wealth inequality being high on that list as well. It's just that...of course there are people still living there, just like folks still living in Baltimore, Cape town and Beirut lol.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Gun control would make make it more work to get assault weapons, but not impossible. They would be a hot item for black market gun sellers!

    The only way to stop the killing in places like Chicago is to bring in the National Guard, tactical units with shoot to kill orders! Many of these shooters are young (14 -16 yo), and quickly get into handling guns and shooting!

    It’s not even like the 90s, when gang bangers were fighting over drug turf!

    Since most blacks kill other blacks, not much will be done!

    Bad Parenting, hip hop I dgaf attitude, hood chicks having hood babies by hood rats, who won’t live long enough to get a second chance, leaves much unified work to be done!

    I know this is a troll, but a broken clock is right twice a day.

    This map is from the UN Global Study on Homicide 2019 and shows the homicide rate by country, with Mexico, some other central and south American countries, being much worse than the USA:

    Oduma has a lot of nerve after he and Eric Holder created "Fast and Furious" and gave assault weapons to the cartels who are now killing journalist and others throughout Mexico. Plus MS13 that the Demoncrats love also have access to these weapons. So Odumba needs to STFU about gun control. Him and the rest of those shouting about gun control keep themselves surrounded by who?....armed guards. Don't come up with bullsh*t that these people are "more important than you." NO...they are hypocrites, anti-American, race baiters, baby killing, perverse lifestyle promoters, open border supporters who want to give illegals free healthcare, schooling, homes, etc. These schizophrenic fools are destroying this country to keep their agenda going. I wrote long ago...and I'll write it again..they want civil war in this country. They want the people fighting against each other while they sit up in their mansions like rulers. THEY WANT AMERICA LAST...!

    This has been the plan for decades and Odumba is part of it..then comes The Donald and all hell breaks lose because he's NOT part of the plan. I'm not a gun advocate, I don't even own one, BUT...the people have a right to bear arms. They want your means of protecting yourself AGAINST THEM....not your fellow citizens. They've got the FEMA camps lined up folks. Of course these shootings were staged "yes, people did get killed but the shooting were planned" to push their agenda to disarm the public, blame it on The Donald because they don't want him to have a second term, and create a fear of white folks because the white people are the "main" ones that must be dehumanized in order to turn America into a 3rd world sh*thole. Pure evil. WAKE-UP PEOPLE....!

    Leaves right back out...Barack gets no love around these here parts!

  • wigmon68

    He was president for 8 years with a full Dem majority for some of it. What did he pass or even propose during those 8 years? From what I gather, 2 laws were passed:

    "During his first term, Obama didn't call for any major new restriction on guns or gun owners. Instead, he urged authorities to enforce the state and federal laws already on the books. In fact, Obama signed only two major laws that address how guns are carried in America, and both actually expand the rights of gun owners.

    One of the laws allows gun owners to carry weapons in national parks; that law took effect in February 2012 and replaced President Ronald Reagan's policy of required guns be locked in glove compartments of trunks of cars that enter national parks.

    Another gun law signed by Obama allows Amtrak passengers to carry
    guns in checked baggage, a move that reversed a measure put in place
    after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001."

    I hear a lot of people say "we need more gun control", but no one stating specifics on what that means. We already have a lot of rules in place, but they simply don't prevent an unidentified crazy person from purchasing a gun and choosing to shoot someone. The issue is more one of morality. These people think their shootings are justified and as long as there are people that believe killing others is OK, all the gun control measures in the world aren't going to change anything.

  • ATL White Guy

    I normally can't stand Piers Morgan, but yesterday he made a point that last year about 32k people died in the U.S. due to gun violence. In the U.K., which has strict gun control, only 32 total died last year due to gun violence. America has more gun violence and gun deaths than the next 23 developed countries combined. The right to bear arms does not mean everyone has a right to have assault weapons.

    What war on cops? The PIGS declared war on The Blacks! Period. The Blacks were reaching out for a higher authority to help them get some type of justice or at least hear them out. And because of this The Whites repeatedly claim that he was against the cops.

    The truth of the matter is that when the United States elected their first real Black president the Police Departments across America took all of their anger out on every Black man, woman, and child.

  • wigmon68

    Roughly 60 percent of those death from "gun violence" were suicide (presumably, most of these deaths would still occur whether guns existed or not). The FBI collection and reports lag somewhat, but there were 13,455 murders in 2015 and 9,616 involved guns. The weapon of choice? 6,447 of the murders (2/3) were by hand gun, 252 by rifle. There were 2477 gun murders where the type of weapon was unidentified.

  • Madashelle

    I know what to do about people control but you ain't gonna like it. Many of the motherfckkcers walking around should have been aborted. In fact, I wish there was such a thing called "retroactive abortion ". Another thing is, depending on the crime, some people should be publicly hanged.

    The thing is, Obama tried. Trump, Mitch McConnell, and the rest of the Republicans aren't even allowing a vote in the Senate for gun legislation laws that the house of Democrats proposed.

  • ATL White Guy

    That is true; in 2017 there were 285 people murdered by knife in England and Wales. Still pales in comparison to the number of those murdered by guns here in U.S. While another poster pointed out that the 32k people who died in the U.S. due to gun violence included suicide, even if you factor that out the # or those murdered in U.S. by gun is still way high than other places.

    That wasn't a gun safety law. IT would have done nothing to prevent Sandy Hook or any other shooting. Any state may already legally institute the same legislation (like California, Connecticut and others have done) to restrict magazine limits. I would presume it should be up to the state to decide such a rule.

  • Around the world

    Omg. Sigh.

    "That wasn't a gun safety law"

    Did you not read the three pieces that I gave you? That being said. Yes, they were. Multiple actually.

    You, just like the rest of the Trump supporting trolls like to ramble on about how Obama didn't do anything regarding gun safety. This right here proves it. Coupled with a simple Google search (but you already knew that.) Secondly, as we speak, Trump hasn't proposed anything (because he's stooge for the NRA), and Mitch McConnell refuses to bring a vote that the house passed on Common sense gun safety regulation HR8, and HR1112. So with this being the 282 mass shooting this yr, and the dotard in the white house refusing to take action, your concern on Obama, who isn't President, is obtuse, and embarrassing.

    Furthermore, here's a little history for you.

    Bill Clinton banned assault rifles in 1994, and mass shooting deaths dropped by 43%. And then Republicans let the ban expire in 2004, which led to mass shooting deaths GOING UP 239%. Now think about that.

  • wigmon68

    the law clinton signed did not ban "assault rifles". assault rifles were already banned in 1934. clintons law banned the production and purchase of some weapons for 10 years. it grandfathered all previously owned weapons in the ban and had a list of 650 weapons that were exempt, including the ruger semi-automatic pistol that I purchased in 1999.

    food for thought, there are many more murders (like 4 times as many) carried out by knives and machete type blade weapons each year than the "assault rifles" that 1994 law banned.
