Obama blames gun lobby 'grip' on Congress for lax U.S. gun laws

Obama speaks at Mayors Conference in San FranciscoBy Roberta Rampton RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. (Reuters) – President Barack Obama blamed public apathy combined with the tight “grip” on Congress of the National Rifle Association, the powerful U.S. gun lobby, for blocking stricter gun laws. Speaking during an interview recorded on Friday, just two days after the mass shooting at a black church in South Carolina, Obama said he did not foresee any quick changes to gun laws. “Unfortunately, the grip of the NRA on Congress is extremely strong,” Obama said in a clip of the interview with “WTF with Marc Maron” posted by the New York Times.
