Barack Obama blamed the ISIS-inspired Boulder shooting on “disaffection, racism and misogyny,” and called for more gun control.
“It is long past time for those with the power to fight this epidemic of gun violence to do so,” Obama said in a statement. “It will take time to root out the disaffection, racism and misogyny that fuels so many of these senseless acts of violence.”
“It’s time for leaders everywhere to listen to the American people when they say enough is enough – because this is a normal we can no longer afford,” he added.
