US President Barack Obama has said no other developed nation would tolerate the "off the charts" level of gun violence plaguing the United States.

At the White House, Obama said the US' firm resistance to "basic" new gun controls was his "biggest frustration".

Obama said the country has to do some soul-searching about this.

The nation has experienced a spate of mass shootings in recent years, at schools, universities and places of work, in addition to street crime.
