    while the shooting was still on-going across town.

    If I were Obama, I'd respond by saying, "Mass shootings are common place nowadays in America, and as Congress won't let us take meaningful action, I'm no longer going to cancel my schedule when these things happen.  24 hours of "mourning" with meaningless statements of condolence are a waste of my and everyone's time.  If we're not going to act, I'm going to treat it like the commonplace event America seems to want to accept that it is."
