    2. providing training and equipment to Iraqi and Syrian fighters.
    3. He said he would also pursue a cease-fire agreement in Syria, which would allow for a “common goal” between the United States and Russia to pursue ISIS.
    4. Obama also made a pitch for gun control, saying it “should be more difficult” to buy high-powered assault-style rifles —
    5. like those used in last week’s attack — and that people on no-fly lists shouldn’t be allowed to buy guns.
