President Obama was in New Orleans Wednesday to address the National Urban League, a largely African-American crowd and a key constituency for his re-election campaign. Obama spoke of the need to broaden economic opportunity, but he also took the occasion to call for steps to control gun violence in the wake of last week's shootings in Aurora, Colo.
