Obama To Tout Gun Control In MN During Visit Next Week
As we reported on Wednesday, President Barack Obama will travel to Minneapolis Monday. We now know why. The Associated Press reports that Obama intends on pitching his proposals for reducing gun violence.
It will be the president’s first trip outside of Washington centered on the gun proposals, which include a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines, as well as universal background checks.
While in Minneapolis, the White House says Obama will meet with local leaders and law enforcement officials. Some of those officials have been part of discussions with Obama on ways to curb gun violence.
