Obama: Gun Control Has Made Him More “Frustrated” Than Any Other Issue

posted on July 25, 2015

In an interview with BBC Thursday, President Obama said his failure to win new anti-gun laws was the biggest frustration of his presidency

“If you ask me where has been the one area that I feel that I’ve been most frustrated and most stymied, it is the fact that the United States is the one advanced nation on earth in which we do not have sufficient, common-sense gun safety laws,” he said. He then compared U.S. deaths due to “gun violence” to deaths due to terrorism since 9/11, suggesting that violent crime was increasing—when in reality, it has fallen to the lowest levels in nearly 40 years.

Maybe Obama should concern himself less with his own “frustration” and more about voters’ frustration with him. Multiple national polls show that Americans have less support for gun bans—and less trust in politicians who push such dishonest schemes—than ever before.
