Obama Says He Hasn’t Given Up On Gun Control

Obama Says He Hasn’t Given Up On Gun Control – The president insists he hasn’t given up on gun control, but he said he’s had difficulties getting changes passed through Congress in the years since the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. “What we’ve done is to try to do as much as we could administratively to tighten up how background checks are run, to go after illegal drug runners,” President Obama told ABC News’s Dr. Richard Besser during a sit-down interview at Howard University. “But I will tell you that trying to get something through Congress has proven to be very difficult. And it’s heart-breaking.”
