The president, as Jordan Fabian of The Hill reports, said yesterday that:

“If you ask me where has been the one area that I feel that I’ve been most frustrated and most stymied, it is the fact that the United States is the one advanced nation on earth in which we do not have sufficient, common-sense gun safety laws.”

This comes as The Hill was also reporting that:

Gun production has more than doubled over the course of the Obama administration, according to a new report from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The manufacturing boom has come in the face of the president’s push to expand background checks and place new restrictions on guns [and] ... paint a picture of gun owners who are concerned about new restrictions on their Second Amendment rights, activists say.

The lack of movement on gun control may be the president’s greatest frustration but the citizenry would more likely say that race relations have been the greatest disappointment of his time in office.  As New York Times reports:

A New York Times/CBS News poll conducted last week reveals that nearly six in 10 Americans, including heavy majorities of both whites and blacks, think race relations are generally bad, and that nearly four in 10 think the situation is getting worse. By comparison, two-thirds of Americans surveyed shortly after President Obama took office said they believed that race relations were generally good.

More guns. More hate. Seems the legacy needs some work.
