President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden went to pay their respects and visit the victims of this past weekend's mass shootings at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando.

FOX's Eben Brown reports from Orlando:

The President and Vice President took the time to meet with victims and families involved in the Pulse massacre and in remarks to reporters, reiterated his intent to see laws change making it harder for people to buy what he refers to as assault weapons, or to allow people once investigated for terrorist concerns to easily acquire firearms:

(President Obama) "This debate needs to change, its outgrown the old political stalemates."

The President added that despite the intentions or motivations of the shooters either in Orlando or Aurora or Newtown, their access to firearms was common.
