Obama calls for stricter gun laws in wake of deadly college shootings

President Barack Obama is calling on Americans to come together to figure out a way to stop the rise of deadly mass shootings.



The president's comments come in the wake of three fatal shootings at colleges in the past month.



Eight students and a teacher were shot dead at a community college in Oregon; another shooting left one student dead at Northern Arizona University; and a third shooting killed another person in a parking lot at Texas Southern University.



President Obama is calling for stricter guns laws, saying these tragedies are "not normal" and "not inevitable."
