On Wednesday, President Barack Obama outlined his package of proposals to “reduce gun violence” in the United States. The key issues the White House is seeking to introduce are: universal background checks for all gun sales, the reinstatement of a ban on assault rifles ban and a 10-round limit on magazines.One of the proposals includes gun trafficking law that would make the act a federal crime.After the press conference, surrounded by children, the president signed 23 executive orders.So, we kick off another national gun debate.
