US President Barack Obama on Friday returned to his hometown of Chicago to bemoan the epidemic of murderous gun violence that took 443 lives in the city last year.
Obama, speaking less than a mile from his house, said that "senseless" gun violence showed the urgency for Congress to pass his package of gun control reforms, which include a proposal to renew a ban on assault weapons.
