US president Mr. Obama signed about 2 dozen executive actions presented to improve the enforcement of present gun laws and to improve the information exchange between agencies to keep check on criminals and to keep guns out of their reach. President acted on his own authority without waiting for congress, by saying that now reasonable people are demanding new law about gun control.
Mr. President called upon Congress to make gun laws toughen and to confront gun violence and mass shooting, with the bet that public opinion support the extensive push for this law.
In an event at noon at White House, Mr. President revealed new plans to initiate legislation by upcoming week that contains ban on new assault weapons, expanded background checks for purchases, limits on high aptitude magazines, and tougher gun interchanging laws to crack down on the weapons spread.
The president’s assurance to act was the zenith of a month long process that began after the massacre of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. In the wake of the shootings, Mr. Obama promised action, but it was not instantly clear how far he was willing to go, as he is also facing intense political opposition.
By implementing new law definitely there will be a sigh of relief for the public but it must not be an end, there must be some public awareness programs to be initiated to educate people.
