Spokesman: Obama Not Giving Up on Assault Weapons Ban 2/4/13
February 4, 2013
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - It may face an uphill battle in Congress, but a spokesman says President Barack Obama remains committed to the assault weapons ban.
And Jay Carney says it's too early to write off prospects for any parts of Obama's gun control package.
Obama is in Minnesota today, looking for support from the public and from the law enforcement community for his calls to ban assault weapons and institute universal background checks for gun buyers.
