Obama to unveil plan on gun control Wednesday

President Obama will unveil his proposals to curb gun vioence Wednesday at 11:45 a.m., alongside Vice President Joe Biden and children who wrote to him after the Newtown, Conn. shooting.

The proposals will include banning assault weapons, administering universal background checks and limiting the number of bullets that ammunition clips can hold.

The proposals are likely to include both executive and legislative actions, but White House spokesman Jay Carney declined to release details Tuesday.

“I will not get ahead of the president in terms of what his package of proposals will include,” he said. “I will simply note that the president has made clear that he intends to take a comprehensive approach.”
