Oregon Community Rocked By Campus Shooting: We Don't Want Obama Here

Just hours after the mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Rosenberg, Oregon last week, President Obama stepped to the microphones at the White House to deliberately politicize the tragedy in the name of gun control. 

“Somebody, somewhere will comment and say, Obama politicized this issue. Well, this is something we should politicize,” he said, admittedly without all of the facts surrounding the situation. "We should be changing these [gun control] laws."

Now the community affected by the shooting is saying no thanks to an official Obama visit, which is scheduled for later this week. Why? They don't want Obama standing on the graves of their dead for political reasons.

President Barack Obama will travel to Oregon this week to visit privately with families of the victims of last week's shooting at a community college.

However the trip has angered locals in Roseburg who say Obama is 'not welcome' in the town because the visit will be nothing but a 'grandstand for political purposes'.  

Lee Stranahan has the video:

No word yet on who exactly President Obama plans to visit while he's in town or how long he'll stay.
