Obama says he’ll act on his own in coming days to strengthen gun safety – Los Angeles Times

President Obama said Monday that he has come up with a number of unilateral moves to promote gun safety that are constitutionally sound and “well within my legal authority,” opening his final year in office with explicit plans to make bold use of his executive powers.

On his first working day of the new year, Obama told reporters he will unveil gun safety initiatives over the next several days that he believes are supported by the “overwhelming majority of the American people, including gun owners.”

“We have to be very clear that this is not going to solve every violent crime in this country. It’s not going to prevent every mass shooting,” Obama acknowledged in a brief statement to reporters in the Oval Office.
