Obama Holds Secret Gun Control Meetings At White House
(Washington Times) Stymied by Congress in his gun control efforts, President
Obama told a group of big-city mayors Tuesday that he would take more executive
actions to reduce gun violence.
The closed-door meeting at the White House included Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., who discussed “strategies to reduce youth violence,” the White House said in a statement.
Mr. Obama “vowed to continue doing everything in his power to combat gun violence through executive action and to press Congress to pass common-sense reforms like expanding the background check system and cracking down on gun trafficking,” the White House said in a statement.
The administration failed in an effort this spring to get the Senate to approve expanded background checks on gun purchases, a legislative response to the Sandy Hook school massacre last December in Connecticut.
