A passionate President Obama on Friday again called for gun control and condemned the Confederate battle flag as a symbol of slavery, using the memorial service for a slain Charleston, S.C., pastor to push his agenda and call for a nationwide dialogue on poverty and race relations.
Delivering the eulogy for Rev. Clementa Pinckney, one of nine killed inside the Mother Emanuel church in Charleston last week, Mr. Obama praised South Carolina’s decision to remove the Confederate battle flag from the state capitol complex. He called on other states to follow suit.
The president also repeated calls for gun control, saying the memory of the late Rev. Pinckney would be dishonored if the nation allows this tragedy to pass without addressing gun violence.
