Obama: Gun control specifics to come within days

This article was published January 14, 2013 at 11:10 a.m.

President Barack Obama says he’s reviewing a list of proposals from Vice President Joe Biden about how to reduce gun violence and expects to present specifics later this week.

Obama says stronger background checks, a meaningful ban on assault weapons and limits on high-capacity ammunition magazines are all ideas he thinks make sense.

He says he’s not sure how many of those measures can pass Congress.

Obama said at a news conference in the East Room of the White House that he expects Congress to set aside politics and focus on common-sense steps that can make a difference.

Obama asked Biden to lead a task force on ways to reduce violence after the December massacre in Newtown, Conn., that killed 27 people — mostly children.
