Obama To Roll Out Gun Control Plans

President Barack Obama will unveil proposals Wednesday to curb gun violence, his response to the December massacre of 26 students and teachers at their elementary school in Newtown, Conn. The plan is to be based on recommendations from Vice President Joe Biden, Obama’s point man for producing gun control measures to present to Congress. Some of the proposals will require congressional action and will face an uphill battle from lawmakers, particularly in the Republican-led House. The National Rifle Association says it will fight any legislative attempts to limit access to guns and ammunition. Obama could put other proposals in place by executive order/Associated Press. More here.

Question: Which gun control measures, if any, would you support?
