President Obama delivered a statement following a meeting with his National Security Council on U.S. operations against ISIS*. He called for reinstatement of the assault weapons ban in wake of the shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, on June 12, the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. He also addressed critics who want him to call ISIS terrorists “radical Islamists,” saying, “Calling a threat by a different name does not make it go away,” and that such criticisms serve as a “political distraction.”

* The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), or DAISH/DAESH in Arabic is a militant group that has called itself the Islamic State. close
