OBAMA DETAILS EXECUTIVE ACTION TO CURB GUN VIOLENCE

President Obama today unveiled several measures intended to advance his gun safety agenda. A teary-eyed Obama said he could not wait for an end to the political deadlock to reduce gun violence. Among the new measures include a clarification on an existing law that requires almost anyone who sells guns for a living to register as a firearms dealer and conduct background checks on clients. The President is also proposing new investments for mental health access, research into gun safety technology and additional Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) agents and investigators. The Congress will have to approve the funding. Republicans have criticized the President and termed the new moves as an abuse of authority.
