In the wake of the recent mass shootings, the White House is taking full advantage of these tragedies in an attempt to enact stricter gun control laws. In a session with the press, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney indicated that the Obama administration would use their power to push for gun control. He accused Congress members of failing to enact stronger gun control laws and told the press that the Obama administration would likely take action without congressional approval.
Carney said there’s a “reluctance” by Congress to pass stronger bans and then told the press that President Obama “does support renewing the assault weapons ban.”
