For the second time since a deadly shooting rampage that left 10 people dead at an Oregon community college, President Barack Obama on Friday expressed frustration that politics has gotten in the way of meaningful gun control reform.

Obama said that as this will not change until the politics change and the behaviour of elected officials change.

His irritation over the stymied status of federal gun control reform was palpable as he addressed reporters during a wide-ranging press conference.

Friday's comments echoed a refrain he's sounded before as he's denounced an American culture that makes it "easy for a person who wants to commit harm on someone else to get their hands on a gun."
