President Barack Obama minced no words in denouncing the deaths as an example of yet another mass shooting that could have been prevented with "common-sense" gun regulation. "Somehow this has become routine," Obama said during an address Thursday evening, a few hours after the shooting. "The reporting is routine. My response here, at this podium, is routine.

At a press conference on Thursday, White House Press secretary Josh Earnest Earnest discussed the shooting and expressed frustration over U.S. gun control laws. "We've not yet seen that kind of strong bipartisan support across the country translate into legislative support in the United States Congress that's sufficient to pass legislation that would implement these kinds of common-sense solutions," Earnest said during the briefing.
