“My biggest frustration so far is the fact that this society has not been willing to take some basic steps to keep guns out of the hands of people who can do just unbelievable damage,” Obama said.

“The use of an image taken from the president’s visit to Colorado to meet with us after our children were killed in the Aurora theater shooting is an utter disgrace. And to insinuate the somber expressions were for anything other than their compassionate response to our heartbreak is beyond unconscionable,” the parents of four victims said in a statement. “Americans for Prosperity is exploiting our tragedy for political gain and this ad should be pulled from the air immediately.”

“I can’t believe people would bring a pistol, a gun, to a movie,” Cummings said. “I can’t believe they would argue and fight and shoot one another over popcorn. Over a cellphone.”
