President Obama gave an emotional address to the country on Tuesday, unveiling executive actions meant to combat gun violence in America. While the true impact of these measures remains to be seen, the president voiced that, "Each time this comes up, we are fed the excuse that common-sense reforms like background checks might not have stopped the last massacre, or the one before that, or the one before that, so why bother trying. I reject that thinking. We know we can't stop every act of violence, every act of evil in the world. But maybe we could try to stop one act of evil, one act of violence." With more than 30,000 gun deaths per year in the United States, this has become one of the most fiercely debated issues facing the nation.
