President Continues Gun Control Talks

Posted by wlpo on January 28, 2013

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama will meet with police chiefs from three cities that have experienced mass shootings, part of his administration’s push to address gun violence.

Obama is drawing attention to the worst shootings of 2012, inviting the police chiefs from: Aurora, Colo., where 12 were killed in July; Oak Creek, Wis., where six died in a Sikh temple assault: and Newtown, Conn., scene of the most recent mass tragedy that left 20 first-graders dead.

A White House official says representatives from the Major Cities Chiefs Association and the Major County Sheriffs Association will also participate in today’s White House meeting.
