Washington (AP) — President Barack Obama says the gun control votes in the Senate next month are the best chance in more than a decade to reduce gun violence.

Obama spoke Thursday at the White House. He says powerful foes of gun control hope Americans will forget the shock of the school shootings in Newtown, Conn.

Obama says people shouldn't get, quote, "squishy" because time has passed. Obama says, quote, "Shame on us if we've forgotten."

He's asking people to urge Congress to support his gun control measures.

Obama spoke alongside parents of the Newtown victims. It's part of a series of rallies by gun control groups across the country Thursday.
