Obama Meets Orlando Massacre Survivors


Tallahassee(Florida): President Barack Obama arrived in Orlando on Thursday to meet with survivors of the massacre at a gay nightclub and relatives of the 49 people killed, as the attack prompted the U.S. Senate to move toward voting on gun control measures.

Reprising the role of consoler in chief that he has played following periodic mass shootings since he took office in 2009, Obama flew to Orlando with Vice President Joe Biden.
