In the wake of a sniper attack on Dallas police officers, President Obama once again made the call for more gun control measures on Friday, as he has done in the aftermath of other mass shootings during his time in office. The shootings in Dallas Thursday night left at least five police officers dead and seven injured.
Speaking from Warsaw, Poland, where he is attending a NATO summit, Obama said, “I will have more to say about this as the facts become more clear. … We also know when people are armed with powerful weapons, unfortunately it makes attacks like these more deadly and more tragic, and in the days ahead we’re going to have to consider those realities, as well.”
Two gun control measures the president and most Democrats in Congress have consistently sought are re-instituting the 1994 assault weapons ban, which was not renewed in 2004, and establishing universal background checks.
