1. No single policy can end gun deaths and prevent massacres like that at Sandy Hook Elementary School, where last month a gunman killed 26 people, including 20 children. Mr Obama admitted as much when he announced a plan to change America's gun culture on Wednesday.

Ikke en enkelt politik kan ende skuddrab og forhindre massakre som den på Sandy Hook Grundskole, hvor en bevæbnet person dræbte 26 mennesker, inklusiv 20 børn. Så meget røbede Hr. Obama da han bekendtgjorde en plan for at ændre den amerikanske våben kultur på onsdag.

Forklaring: Oversætte man det direkte, kommer der på dansk til at stå, at en enkel dvs. et nemt politk ikke kan ende våben volden.

2. "Reducing gun violence is a complicated challenge," he said. 

”At formindske våben vold er en kompliceret udfordring” udtalte han.

Forklaring: man skal være opmærksom på, hvilket ordklasse af ordet reducing, man anvender.

3. Most public health officials agree on the need for a patchwork approach to the problem - one encompassing gun regulations, mental health initiatives and a hard look at violence in popular culture.

De fleste sundhedspersoner er enige om behovet for en lappeløsning på problemet – en omfattende våben regulering, lovforslag til psykisk helbredstilstande, og et hårdt kig på vold i populære kulture.

Forklaring: det kan være svært at oversætte et engelsk udtryk, uden den bliver for dansk.
