President Barack Obama addressed the shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut that left 20 children dead in his weekly address Saturday.

Obama had addressed the shooting Friday, tearing up as he offered condolences to the families of the children who “had their entire lives ahead of them, birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own.” He delivered his remarks in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room, which was named for former press secretary to President Ronald Reagan who was shot in an attempt on the then-president’s life in 1981.

His weekly address reflected those earlier remarks, reiterating a call for action after “far too many of these tragedies in the last few years.”
