Calling the failure to pass gun-control laws the biggest frustration of his time in office, President Obama on Tuesday said America should be ashamed of its gun laws, decried the type of violence seen again Tuesday at an Oregon school, and praised a country that more or less banned all long guns.
Speaking to Tumblr founder David Karp, Mr. Obama said the U.S. does not conform to the rest of the advanced, developed world when it comes to gun laws, resurrecting his plea for restrictions on the sale of firearms. He also disputed the notion that mental illness is solely to blame, saying other nations do not experience mass shootings and the U.S. doesnt have a monopoly on crazy people.
My biggest frustration so far is the fact that this society has not been willing to take some basic steps to keep guns out of the hands of people who can do just unbelievable damage. Were the only developed country on earth where this happens. And it happens now once a week. And its a one-day story. Theres no place else like this, the president said.
He then went on to praise a country that had outright banned and imposed a mandatory buyback on almost all long guns, including semi-automatic weapons and shotguns.
A couple of decades ago Australia had a mass shooting similar to Columbine or Newtown, and Australia just said, Well, thats it. Were not doing were not seeing that again, and basically imposed very severe, tough gun laws, and they havent had a mass shooting since. I mean, our levels of gun violence are off the charts. Theres no other advanced, developed country on earth that would put up with this, he said.

America should be (IS) ashamed of odumbo!
Obama should have been removed the 3rd day into his first term.
King Obama says: Your rules don’t apply to me. I AM GOD.
I'm ashamed of the worthless POS bastard usurper in the White House!
I have no intent to be obedient to Obamalaw.
:: saying other nations do not experience mass shootings ::
Seems to me there was a Norwegian resort-town with dozens dead recently, at the hands of a “crazy” person.
Oh, he used a gun.
well, I am ashamed of what passes for a _resident. And I am ashamed of those majority of my countrymen who saddled us with this filth.
Nope. Anders Breivik was Norwegian.
Mr. Obama said the U.S. does not conform to the rest of the advanced, developed world when it comes to gun laws....
People come here from somewhere else to get away from their former nation's BS. It's why we're special. We're the last stop. Wish we had a leader who believed that, too.
I guess this means we should be ashamed of our Founders and of the Constitution they wrote.
its a set up. I cant carry weapons in certain situations, due to draconian laws...those who would commit mayhem are not bound by such laws, ergo, many people get killed in a situation that an armed citizen could have stopped early.
I guess that means Michelle shouldn’t be proud of her country anymore.
America is involved in the Law of Conversation of Shame.
There is just so much shame to go around and it is presently concentrated as being ashamed of our treacherous but worthless incompetent president
I’m ashamed of all the chatter about our Pres. and no one in congress does anything to shut his destruction of the USA down.
I agree with that part of his preaching.
All gun laws should be rescinded as unconstitutional!
I agree. America should be ashamed for having over 20,000 anti-gun laws on the books, seeing that such laws only make victims sitting ducks, and proposing more laws.
Einstein said that the definition of insanity is to repeat a process while expecting different results.
In proposing the same lame solutions that have not worked yet, and have even increased unnecessary deaths, 0bama0 is either insane or evil or both.
Remember Biden mocking people for thinking Pres—ent Scumbag would take away their guns? “Obama won’t take away your guns” is as much a lie as “If you like your health plan, you can keep it.” Taking away guns ... it’s what dictators do.
>>My biggest frustration so far is the fact that this society has not been willing to take some basic steps to keep guns out of the hands of people who can do just unbelievable damage.
OK. Let’s do that.
So how do we disarm blacks (who commit most gun crimes) and crazy white people (who commit almost all mass shootings) without keeping guns out of the hands of good, law-abiding people who don’t want to be victims of the first two groups?
Won’t the black lobby and crazy people lobby (i.e. teachers and other democrats) complain about this?
