Obama Talks Planned Parenthood in Paris: Mass Shootings Don't Happen In Other Countries


In a press conference Tuesday afternoon, President Obama addressed Planned Parenthood shooting over the weekend, likening the mass shooting to a terrorist attack. Speaking in Paris, a city which recently experienced a coordinated terror attack that left over 130 dead, Obama said these type of "mass shootings" don't occur in other countries.

"With respect to Planned Parenthood, obviously, my heart goes out to those families impacted. I mean, I say this every time we go one of these mass shootings, this just doesn't happen in other countries," President Obama said.

"You know, we are rightly determined to prevent terrorist attacks wherever they occur, whether in the United States or with friends and allies like France, and we devote enormous resources and properly so to rooting out networks and debilitating organizations like ISIL and maintaining the intelligence," the president said.

"In the United States we have the power to do more to prevent what is just a regular process of gun homicides," Obama added.
