From the president:
"They are our family. They're part of the American family."
the nation was inspired by the courage of those who risked their lives to save others in the attack.
"We're all going to have to work together, at every level of government, across political lines, to stop killers who want to terrorize. We will continue to be relentless" against terrorist groups.
"When you have lone-wolf attacks like this etched in the minds of a disturbed person, then we're going to have to take different kinds of steps in order to prevent" such slayings.
"Those who were killed and injured here were gunned down by a single killer with a powerful assault weapon. The motives of this killer may have been different than the mass killers in Aurora, or Newtown. But the instruments of death were so similar. Now another 49 innocent people are dead. Another 53 are injured. Some are still fighting for their lives."
"We can't anticipate or catch every single deranged person..."
"but we can do something about the amount of damage that they do."
"Today, once again, as has been true too many times before, I held and hugged grieving family members and friends and they asked why does this keep happening. They pleaded that we do more to stop" such killings.
The victims were "in places where kids are supposed to be."
"The notion that the answer to this tragedy would be to make sure that more people in a nightclub are similarly armed to the killer, defies common sense."
He gun rights advocates should explain "why it is they think our liberty requires these repeated tragedies."
"That's not the meaning of liberty."
On Senate action:
"I hope that senators who voted no on background checks after Newtown have a change of heart. And then I hope the House does the right thing and helps to end the plague of violence that these weapons inflict on so many lives."
