President Obama discussed Newtown and Gun Control in Weekly Address (VIDEO)

“Helping Protect Our Kids by Reducing Gun Violence” is the title of President Obama’s video address published this past Saturday.

Stating that as a nation, “we have changed” over the past three months, Obama urged lawmakers to use this “unique opportunity” to bring an assault weapons ban and magazine capacity limits in front of Congress for a vote.

“Right now, we have a real chance to reduce gun violence in America, and prevent the very worst violence. We have a unique opportunity to reaffirm our tradition of responsible gun ownership, and also do more to keep guns out of the hands of criminals or people with a severe mental illness.  We’ve made progress over the last three months, but we’re not there yet. And in the weeks ahead, I hope Members of Congress will join me in finishing the job.”

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) will hold votes next month on Obama’s gun violence package.  A packaged bill with broad support will be presented singularly, while the more controversial elements like an assault weapons ban and magazine capacity will be separated off by themselves as possible individual amendments.
