The White House said on Wednesday that the shooting of two
television journalists in Virginia is another example of gun
violence that is "becoming all too common."
White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters that Congress
can pass legislation that would have a "tangible impact of
reducing gun violence in this country."
Earnest said he had not had the chance to speak with President
Barack Obama about the shooting, which occurred Wednesday
morning. Earnest said the thoughts and prayers of those in the
White House are with those killed.
