BUFFALO, New York, May 17 (Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden on Tuesday said it will be difficult to push through any gun control measures but that he will not give up on enacting changes to curb such violence, saying he and fellow Americans have got to press lawmakers to act.

"I've got to convince the Congress," he told reporters as he departed Buffalo after meeting with relatives of those killed or injured in Saturday's shooting.

"Part of what the country has to do is look in the mirror, that's the reality. We have a problem with domestic terrorism. It's real."
