President Obama again called on Congress to pass more gun regulations Wednesday in the wake of a mass shooting in southern California.

In brief comments to CBS News at the White House, Mr. Obama lamented that Congress hasn’t passed a law banning people on the government’s “no fly” terrorist watch list from purchasing guns. He said officials at all levels of government should work on a bipartisan basis to “make these [shootings] rare.”

“We should never think that this is something that just happens in the ordinary course of events, because it doesn’t happen with the same frequency in other countries,” Mr. Obama said.

“We have a pattern now of mass shootings in this country that has no parallel anywhere else in the world,” the president said.

The president said the FBI is aiding in the investigation, and he’s being briefed regularly on the situation.
