In the latest fight against gun violence, President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden plan to meet with police chiefs from three U.S. communities that have experienced mass shootings in the last year.
The meeting, scheduled to take place in the White House, is set to discuss the administration’s push to reduce gun violence.
Newtown’s police chief, Michael Kehoe, plans to be at the meeting along with his counterparts from Aurora, Colorado, where 12 people were killed and 58 wounded in a mass shooting at a movie theater last July, and from Oak Creek, Wisconsin, where six people were killed and four wounded at a Sikh temple in August.
It’s the latest in a series of discussions that Obama is using to rally political support for tighter gun-control laws.
Monday’s meeting will also include representatives of the Major Cities Chiefs Association and Major County Sheriffs Association, as well as U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
Do you think the police chiefs will have some amendments to Obama’s comprehensive plan?
