Obama: US 'Should Be Ashamed' Of Gun Violence

Don't blame me - I just report em.

Barack Obama has said he is ashamed as an American and terrified as a parent that the US has been unable to pass gun-control measures.

The president was speaking hours after a shooting at an Oregon high school that left a student dead and a teacher injured.

"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," Mr Obama said.

He said the US is the only developed country in the world that permits this type of behaviour.

"We should be ashamed of that," Mr Obama said.

"There's no place else like this."

Mr Obama was speaking at a White House online event sponsored by Tumblr.

Anyone who tells you you can't buy happiness has never been in a book store or an animal shelter.

You are the result of 3 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.
