WASHINGTON--In a statement from the Oval Office on the San Bernadino mass shootings, President Obama told reporters it is important we look at ourselves as a nation when it comes to gun violence in this country.
Obama extended his condolences to the families of the victims in yesterday's attack that killed 14 people and injured 17 others. President Obama said "we do not yet know why this terrible event occurred" but stated "there may be mixed motives...it is possible this was terrorist related, but we don't know."
Obama stated it will be important for citizens and legislators to evaluate how weapons are obtained in this country. "We need to take basic steps to make it harder, not impossible, but make it harder for individuals to get weapons."
The FBI has taken over the investigation and Obama told reporters more weapons were found in the home of 28-year-old Syed Rizwan Farook and 27-year-old Tashfeen Malik, both killed during a standoff with police after the shootings.
