President Comments




WASHINGTON -- President Bill Clinton has said reports about the suspect in shootings at a Los Angeles Jewish community center were "deeply disturbing" as the White House renewed calls for stronger gun-control laws.


The suspect, Buford O'Neal Furrow, turned himself in to the FBI in Las Vegas on Wednesday and was charged Thursday with five counts of attempted murder at the Jewish center and the murder of a Philippines-born postman, Joseph Ileto.


"We are a long way from knowing all the facts about this case ... but what we have heard about the suspect and his motives is deeply disturbing," Clinton said Wednesday.


"I can only hope that this latest incident will intensify our resolve to make America a safer place and a place of healing across the lines that divide us," he added.
