WASHINGTON (CNN) — President Barack Obama reiterated his call for more gun control reforms in the wake of the reported mass shooting in San Bernardino, California.

Speaking to CBS News, Obama said Congress should act in a bipartisan manner to close loopholes, including one that allows people on the TSA no-fly list to legally purchase firearms.

“There are steps we can take to make Americans safer,” he said. “We should never think this is something that just happens in the normal course of events.”

Obama said the pattern of U.S. mass shootings “has no parallel anywhere else in the world.”
