Former President Barack Obama has claimed that US arms laws & # 39; are not correct & # 39 ;.
The Democrat – who insisted on increasingly stricter restrictions during his two terms of office – said it was too easy to even buy machine guns online without any regulation.
Obama made the reactions on stage during a sit-down interview on VTEX DAY, a digital convention in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on Thursday.

Speaking of the shooting practice at the Sandy Hook school where 20 children and six adults were slaughtered, he described it as the & # 39; most difficult day of his life & # 39 ;.
& # 39; The worst thing for me was that I could not bring their children back or promised that we would change the laws & # 39 ;, he told the 10,000-strong crowd.
He added: & # 39; We know that in some countries we have gun laws that don't make sense. It is even possible to buy machine guns online without any regulations. & # 39;
Obama's comments come just a few months after Brazil has passed laws that make it easier for people to buy and carry weapons.

The far-right Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro signed the temporary decree in January, amid a record wave of murders.
Obama – considered by many to be the & # 39; most anti-gun president in American history & # 39; – made several attempts to limit the size of firearms magazines, to extend background checks on arms buyers during his two terms of office.
But they all turned out to be unpopular in Congress and failed to succeed. The 44th president of the US has repeatedly underlined his inability to tighten arms laws as the & # 39; greatest frustration of his presidency & # 39; called.
