|WASHINGTON Donovan Mitchell Jazz Jersey , Dec. 14 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Barack Obama on Saturday marked the first anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting massacre with a moment of silence in the White House and a nationwide address for tighter gun control.
The president and First Lady Michelle Obama lit 26 candles in memory of those lost in the mass shooting one year ago, in the Map Room of the White House on Saturday morning. They then observed a moment of silence.
Obama seized the moment to rally grassroots support for gun control legislation in his weekly radio address released by the White House.
"We have to do more to keep dangerous people from getting their hands on a gun so easily. We have to do more to heal troubled minds. We have to do everything we can to protect our children from harm and make them feel loved, and valued, and cared for," said the president.
As the year for Congressional mid-term election is coming Derrick Favors Jazz Jersey , Obama acknowledged in his remarks that "the real change won't come from Washington."
"It will come the way it's always come -- from you. From the American people," said Obama, calling for the public to "make a change" together.
Twenty school children and six educators were killed by a gunman in the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on Dec. 14 last year Dante Exum Jazz Jersey , which shocked the nation and renewed the gun control debate.
Gun control became one of Obama's second-term legislative priorities. The Obama administration tried hard for months earlier this year to build momentum for gun control reform at the national level, including inviting parents of the victims in Sandy Hook shooting to lobby for the measures.
However, some key measures of the comprehensive gun control package, including banning assault weapons and expanding background checks for gun purchasers, stalled in the Democrats- controlled Senate Alec Burks Jazz Jersey , dealing a major blow to the efforts led by the president. The gun control reform is expected to meet even stronger resistance in the Republicans-controlled House of Representatives.

Novak Djokovic opened his bid for a third straight BNP Paribas Open title on Sunday night by surviving an unexpected challenge from American qualifier Bjorn Fratangelo, 2-6, 6-1, 6-2.
“All credit to Bjorn on playing a great match, but I wasn’t feeling comfortable at all on the court Adrian Dantley Jazz Jersey ,” the top-ranked Djokovic said after extending his winning streak at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden to 12 matches.
“I was just trying to find a way, trying to hang in there and make it through.”
The 22-year-old Fratangelo was the French Open boys’ champion in 2011 and turned pro in 2012, but has been playing almost exclusively on the satellite tours. He’s ranked No. 149 and his first-round win on Friday was his first in four matches on the ATP World Tour.
He took a 4-0 lead in the opening set and kept the match interesting until Djokovic got back-to-back service breaks en route to winning the final five games.
“He deserved every point he got,” Djokovic said. “He played a great match, especially in the first set.”
Djokovic Tony Bradley Jersey , who has a 17-1 record this season, took the court after top-ranked Serena Williams moved into the women’s fourth round with a ragged 7-6 (2), 6-0 victory over Yulia Putintseva of Kazakhstan.
Later, fourth-seeded Rafael Nadal beat Gilles Muller of Luxembourg 6-2, 2-6 Ricky Rubio Jersey , 6-4.
Simona Halep of Romania capped the night with a 64-minute 6-2, 6-4 win over Ekaterina Makarova of Russia.
Nadal got a tenuous grip on the match when a backhand passing shot gave him a 30-0 lead with Muller serving in the final game, and Muller double-faulted to make it 40-0. Nadal gave two points back on errant forehands, then won it with a forehand return that handcuffed Muller as he moved to the net.
“He’s a very, very difficult player Pete Maravich Jersey , especially in these conditions,” Nadal said of his left-handed opponent. “It’s very, very difficult to play. You have to be focused all the time and put as many balls in the court as you can and wait for your moment.”
In the opening set, Williams showed the effects of a six-week layoff since losing the Australian Open final. The two-time tournament champion made 29 unforced errors and seemed completely out of a rhythm against Putintseva, who played aggressively and challenged every close line call.
Williams had to break Putintseva’s serve to force the tiebreaker and then finally began to impose herself on the 56th-ranked Putintseva Jonas Jerebko Jersey , .
