• Obama Whines about U.S. GUN Rights in This Interview with Foreign Press

    President Barack Obama admitted during an interview with BBC Friday that the biggest frustration of his presidency has been not having passed stricter gun control laws.

    Obama said it was “distressing” not to have made progress on the issue “even in the face of repeated mass killings.”.

    “If you ask me where has been the one area where I feel that I’ve been most frustrated and most stymied, it is the fact that the United States of America is the one advanced nation on Earth in which we do not have sufficient, common sense gun laws, even in the face of repeated mass killings.”

    If you look at the number of Americans killed by terrorism since Sept. 11, 2001 by terrorism, it’s less than 100. If you look at the number that have been killed by gun violence, it’s in the tens of thousands. For us not to have been able to resolve that issue, it’s something that is distressing, but it is not something that I intend to stop working on in the remaining 18 months.

    Obama said he was proud to have improved race relations during his presidency despite his failure to pass strict gun control.
