White House press secretary Josh Earnest called for tighter gun control in the wake of the San Bernardino terrorist attack, saying that President Barack Obama believes that if "common sense" gun controls were enacted, it could have prevented the attack.

Pressed by Fox News reporter Peter Doocy whether the president actually believes gun control would stop a terrorist plot, Earnest said making guns harder to get would be a good place to start:

California has some of the toughest gun controls in the Union, including background checks, a ten-day waiting period, and restrictions on convicts, felons and the mentally ill being able to purchase guns. Initial police reports have indicated that the guns used by Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik were purchased legally in California.
