US gun violence extremism has no parallel in any other society: President Obama

Shares
WASHINGTON: President Obama reacted to the San Bernardino shooting this afternoon in an interview with CBS’Norah O’Donnell. It was only yesterday that the president said, “I mean, I say this every time we’ve got one of these mass shootings; this just doesn’t happen in other countries.” And in reaction to the shooting today, he again said, “We have a pattern now of mass shootings in this country that has no parallel anywhere else in the world, and there’s step we can take not to eliminate every one of these mass shootings, but to improve the odds they don’t happen as frequently.” He brought up how people on the no-fly list can get guns, and he said that America needs to ‘come together in a bipartisan basis” to “make these rare as opposed to normal. We should never think that this is something that just happens in the ordinary course of events, because it doesn't happen with the same frequency in other countries, Obama said.(The Atlantic)
