Obama Is Going To Make A Major Announcement Of A Gun Violence Task Force Today
In the wake of last Friday’s massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., that killed 20 children and seven others, President Barack Obama is expected to announce today the formation of a gun violence task force led by Vice President Joe Biden.
The White House announced earlier this morning that Obama “will deliver a statement in the Brady Press Briefing Room about the policy process the administration will pursue in the wake of the Newtown tragedy. The Vice President will also attend.”
According to multiple reports, Obama is not expected to lay out any specific policy plans in the wake of the Newtown tragedy. He will introduce the task force and give an idea of how the administration plans to proceed.
