Obama To Push Gun Control Plan In Minnesota

February 3, 2013, 8:15 AM by Perry Groten

Obama To Push Gun Control Plan In Minnesota
MINNEAPOLIS, MN -

President Obama will visit Minnesota on Monday on his first trip outside Washington to promote his gun-control proposals.

His gun control measures, which include a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines, as well as universal background checks for anyone who wants to buy a firearm, have met some resistance on Capitol Hill and from opponents of tighter restrictions on access to guns, including the powerful National Rifle Association.

In Minneapolis on Monday, Obama plans to make remarks as well as discuss his proposals with local and law enforcement officials during a stop at the police department's special operations center. He's also expected to visit with community members to hear about their experiences with gun violence, the White House said.

Obama announced his proposals in mid-January, about a month after the Dec. 14 shooting deaths of 20 children and six adults at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn.
