On Friday, President Obama delivered his eulogy for Rev. Clementa Pinckney, one of the nine churchgoers slain in a racially motivated attack in Charleston, South Carolina earlier this month.
Pinckney served as a state senator for South Carolina since 2001. He was also pastor at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. Six thousand people attended the memorial service in Charleston.
Similar to calls Obama made at the memorial service for the victims of the school shooting in Newtown, Conn. in 2012, he used his speech to bring up the nation's gun control restrictions.
