    President Barack Obama is expected to call on Congress to review gun control measures during a prime-time address from the Oval Office on Sunday, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said this morning on "Meet the Press."

    It comes in the wake of last week's deadly shooting in San Bernardino, California, which left 14 dead and 21 wounded. Federal authorities are investigating the attack as an act of terrorism, and ISIS has said the husband and wife held responsible were followers of the group.

    "What you're going to hear from him is a discussion about what government is doing to ensure all of our highest priority — the protection of the American people," Lynch told Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press."

    Obama is expected to speak at 8 p.m.
