Obama: ‘Most Frustrated’ That I Can’t Control Guns

Christian Datoc Audience Development Manager

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

OBAMA: 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 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. 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.
