Video

President Barack Obama reacted to the fatal shooting of two WDBJ-TV journalists Wednesday, saying he was heartbroken and contending that gun violence kills more in America than terrorism.

In an interview with WPVI-TV, the president reacted to the killing of 24-year-old reporter Alison Parker and 27-year-old photojournalist Adam Ward.

"It breaks my heart every time you read or hear about these kids of incidents," Obama said.

"What we know is that the number of people who die from gun-related incidents around this country dwarfs any deaths that happen through terrorism," the president added.
