President Obama will travel to Minneapolis, Minn. Monday to talk with "local leaders and law enforcement officials about his plans for reducing gun violence, the White House says.
It says Minneapolis has "taken important steps to reduce gun violence and foster a conversation in the community about what further action is needed." Obama will "visit with members of the community about their experiences and discuss additional steps that can be taken at the federal level to reduce gun violence."
The city earlier this month hosted a regional gun summit, led in part by its mayor, R.T. Rybak. The Minneapolis police chief and Hennepin County sheriff were among the law enforcement leaders meeting with Obama and vice president Joe Biden earlier this week. Biden, who has been Obama's point person on the gun legislation, won't be on the trip; he's heading to Europe.
