Obama, Biden to speak to law enforcement officials about gun control

Days after the White House kicked off its campaign to try to sell America on a contentious gun control proposal, President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden plan to meet with law enforcement officials about the issue.

Obama and Biden will speak to representatives from the Major Cities Chiefs Association and Major County Sheriffs Association late Monday morning in the Roosevelt Room in the White House.

Obama's package includes proposals for banning assault weapons, limiting the capacity of ammunition magazines, requiring background checks on all gun purchases and spending millions more dollars on training, research and counseling.

Many of those proposals needs approval from a divided Congress. The Senate will hold its first hearing Wednesday.
