President Barack Obama will publicly announce his gun-safety proposals as early as Wednesday, with the new recommendations including some executive actions in addition to possible legislative proposals like a ban on assault weapons or large capacity magazines.

The president met with Vice President Joe Biden Monday – a day ahead of schedule – to discuss the Biden-led task force’s recommendations after the group’s series of meetings with stakeholders in the gun violence debate.

Congressional officials familiar with the task force meetings said late Monday that Biden and his staff have developed 19 areas where Obama could use executive orders to institute new gun control policy.

The possible executive actions were not listed to the members of Congress who attended a Monday White House meeting, but officials said Biden mentioned new avenues for gun violence research as well as the strengthening of existing gun laws. Options pertaining to mental health were also mentioned.


President Obama will unveil his gun violence proposals Wednesday at the White House, according to people who have been briefed on the event.

Obama has invited gun control groups to the White House Wednesday, representatives of three groups that have received invitations told POLITICO.

Obama is expected to announce the White House will push for a prohibition on high-capacity ammunition magazines, universal background checks for gun purchases and an assault weapons ban, along with the 19 executive orders that Vice President Biden told House Democrats Monday Obama will implement unilaterally.
