President Obama has angrily blamed politics for the failure of legislation aimed at tightening gun controls to be endorsed by the US Senate.
Attacking the powerful gun lobby for spreading lies in the build up to the vote, the US President said his battle to secure gun reform was not over.
"There were no coherent arguments as to why we wouldn't do this. It came down to politics. All in all this was a pretty shameful day for Washington but this effort is not over."
