In weekly address, Obama pushes gun control

On his final day of his first term in office, President Obama spoke about preventing gun violence in his weekly radio address.

He touted his proposals ban assault weapons ban, limit the capacity of magazines, require universal background checks on gun buyers, promote school safety mental health treatment.

"While we may not be able to prevent every senseless act of violence in this country, if there is even one thing we can do to reduce it - if even one life can be saved - we've got an obligation to try," he said.
