Obama push for assault weapons ban, other gun laws faces steep climb in Congress
(MCT) — WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is expected to unveil a series of tough new initiatives Wednesday aimed at curbing violence in America, including an assault weapons ban, but his major legislative proposals might face a difficult time in a reluctant Congress.
Many of the more ambitious plans, such as the assault-weapons ban, may not even get to a vote in the Republican-run House of Representatives. Others include limiting the capacity of ammunition clips and requiring background checks for every gun purchase, regardless of where it occurs.
