President Obama has revealed his greatest frustration as United States President, No it is not the disgusting same-sex marriage issue and its implications its the "distressing" lack of progress on gun control legislation and the inability to push through limitations on access to arms, despite repeated massacres during his tenure. Obama made this known hours before yet another gunman went on a shooting spree at a movie theatre in Louisiana, killed himself but not before cutting down the lives of two people.
Speaking to BBC, Obama said his country was "the one advanced nation on Earth in which we do not have sufficient common-sense, gun-safety laws." "If you look at the number of Americans killed since 9/11 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, and for us not to be able to resolve that issue has been something that is distressing. But it is not something that I intend to stop working on in the remaining 18 months."
Under the US Constitution, every American is entitled "to keep and bear arms" and millions of law-abiding gun owners protect this tenet "jealously" as a symbol of liberty and a foil against tyrannical government. Despite the ceaseless and worrying incidences of shootings even in schools and other crowded areas, the Obama administration's attempt to enforce a restriction on access to fire arms through mandatory background checks on all fire arms sales have been deterred by the political clout of the National Rifle Association (NRA) and the gun industry on Capitol Hill.
