President Obama will offer a “comprehensive” proposal to combat gun violence on Wednesday that will include bans on assault weapons and high-capacity clips and increased background checks on gun buyers, the White House announced Tuesday.â€¬
Obama will announce his proposals at an 11:45 a.m. event Wednesday to be attended by Mayors Against Illegal Guns and members of Congress active in efforts to impose new restrictions on guns.
The announcement comes just more than a month after 20 six- and seven-year olds were killed by a lone gunman in an act that shocked the nation and renewed a battle over guns. Killer Adam Lanza also killed six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut on Dec. 14, a day Obama called the worst of his presidency.
The president put Vice President Biden in charge of a task force to look at the problem of gun violence, and said he wanted to make recommendations to Congress by the end of January.
“Tomorrow the president and the vice president will hold an event here at the White House to unveil a package of concrete proposals to reduce gun violence and prevent future tragedies like the one in Newtown, Connecticut,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said Tuesday. “They will be joined by children from around the country who wrote the president letters in the wake of that tragedy expressing their concerns about gun violence and school safety, along with their parents.”â€¬
