Barack Obama says it’s possible that yesterday’s mass shooting in California is terror-related, but the authorities still don’t know. He also says it’s possible it was workplace-related or that there were mixed motives.
Speaking from the Oval Office, the president assures Americans that authorities will get to the bottom of what happened and urges people to wait for facts before making judgments.
He says that while many Americans feel there’s nothing they can do about mass violence, “we all have a part to play.”
The president says the nation must make it harder to carry out violence, but acknowledges that the threat can’t be eliminated completely.
