    Pope Francis has chastised the political decisions and skewed ideologies that make weapons easily accessible, while aid distribution faces numerous obstacles, NBC News reported.

    He was speaking at a United Nations World Food program event Monday and told the audience weapons circulate around the world with "brazen" freedom.

    The pope's remarks came one day after the Orlando nightclub massacre, the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.
