President Obama is expected to push for stricter national gun laws during a speech Tuesday at the annual conference of the International Association of Chiefs of Police in Chicago. The laws are aimed at making it harder to sidestep gun laws in one state by driving to nearby states with less restrictive gun regulations. The problem has plagued efforts to stem gun violence in Chicago.

The Reporter examined Obama’s record on gun control in advance of his speech to the police chiefs.

  1. And yet gun laws currently on the books are not being enforced… Remember the gang member that killed Hadiya? that Obama politicized? he was on probation for a gun crime, when he should have been in jail… Enforce current gun laws, no new ones are needed as they will do nothing more than waste paper…
