Clinton lays out plan for 'lone wolf' attacks


Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee, says the United States shouldn't fall into the "trap set by the gun lobby" that suggests if you can't stop all shootings, you don't try to stop any.

If elected, Clinton said she would push for laws that prevent people on America's no-fly list from buying weapons. She also wants tougher restrictions on "weapons of war," like the assault-style rifles used in Orlando and San Bernardino, California.

A gunman identified as Omar Mateen opened fire inside a crowded gay nightclub in Orlando early Sunday, killing 49 people before dying in a police shootout.

Clinton said she would also set up a federal team dedicated exclusively to addressing "lone wolf" attacks and work closer with technology companies to prevent "online radicalization."

Clinton made her remarks on NBC "Today" and CBS "This Morning."
