President Obama endorsed controversial bans on assault weapons on Monday.
At a White House Press Conference, the president told press members that he will unveil a comprehensive plan to curb gun violence within days.
President Obama admitted that passing an assault weapons ban, through congress, would be difficult. However, Obama is willing to use his executive privileges to enforce stricter gun laws.
In addition to a ban on assault weapons, the president also endorsed banning high-capacity magazines, and stricter background checks for gun buyers.
