Obama has just blamed the Dallas shooting on the open carry laws in Texas. Obama also said that the actions of the shooter do not reflect the views of the black community. More to follow as the press conference is occurring right now.
Obama has also claimed that after 2 black men were recently shot by police who were defending themselves, America must recognize it has a significant race issue. But, after 5 white officers in Dallas were murdered by a black man who expressed an interest in killing white people and white police officers, Obama says that America must not judge from one incident.
