On Friday, President Obama said he was “horrified” by the killing of Dallas Police officers during the July 7 Black Lives Matter rally and signaled a push for more gun control will be forthcoming.
He spoke from Warsaw, Poland, where he is meeting with NATO leaders.
According to News.com.au, Obama described the attack as “twisted” and said, “There’s no possible justification for these kinds of attacks or any violence against law enforcement.”
He then signaled a coming push for more gun control, saying:
We also know that when people are armed with powerful weapons, unfortunately, it makes attacks like these more deadly and more tragic. In the days ahead, we are going to have to confront those realities as well.
Throughout his second term in office Obama has demonstrated a tendency to respond to any type of firearm-related attack with calls for more gun control, including gun control that is already in place yet failing miserably in certain U.S. states and/or foreign countries–like France.
Two days after the October 1 attack in the gun-free zone of Umpqua Community College in Oregon he even hinted at firearm confiscation.
