President Obama choked up and wiped tears from his eyes as he talked about children getting murdered in the wave of gun violence.

Obama took a moment to compose himself as he unveiled a series of executive orders on guns, including expanding mandatory background checks for some private sales. 

Obama called on the majority of gun owners to grieve with the nation and demand change.
