Obama “Ashamed” of Lack of Gun Regulation
President Obama spoke candidly Tuesday following the school shooting in Oregon.
The president says the nation should be ashamed of the inability to get tougher gun restrictions through Congress.
“I am prepared to work with anybody including responsible sportsmen and gun owners to craft some solutions. Right now it’s not even possible to get even the mildest restrictions through Congress. And we should be ashamed of that.”
President Obama added that politicians from both parties were afraid of the NRA, saying the organization is well-funded and able to influence elections to prevent any significant new gun regulations from becoming a law.
