President Obama meets this afternoon with U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch to finalize a set of executive actions on gun control.
While specific details are expected to be released later in the week, it’s reported that one such action would require occasional dealers – such as those who sell firearms at gun shows – begin conducting background checks on potential buyers.
Congressman David Price told N.C.Policy Watch just before the holidays that the nation desperately need action on gun violence.
Price agrees with closing the so-called “gun show loophole” and also wants to lift the ban on federal funding for gun violence research.
“No one of these things would solve the whole issue, we know that….but surely we can do more, surely we more.”
