especially in the oval office. our washington bureau correspondent alex miller joins us live this morning to talk about the busy week president obama has had. alex, the president used his executive powers to issue reforms on gun control. ?does congress have a say in any of this? most of it-no but the president did put some language in his executive orders that need to be approved by congress. not up to congressthe expansion of background checks requiring anyone who sells guns to have a license and require background checks but what the president is asking congress for is more funding for mental health and an expansion in staff for the atf. now as extreme as many republicans say these measures are--- they likely didn't go as far as obama would have liked he called on congress to help with more
the president was also obama would have liked he called on congress to help with more lesislation going forward the president was also dealt a little bit of a blow to his signature achievement, but alex, ?does this really mean anything for the affordable care act? its taken them 5 years and 64 separate votes to finally get an obamacare repeal through both the house and senate its not a full repeal but republicans gutted the key parts of the law. now even though it is headed to the president's desk for the first time hes going to immediately veto it an congress probably doesn't have enough votes to override it they also defunded
again which will also be vetoed. thank you alex. people both for and against more gun regulation gathered in virginia last night for a town hall with president obama - giving them a chance to speak with the president about gun control. dianne gallagher reports. --reporter pkg-as follows-- president obama came face to face thursday with americans passionate about gun control -- answering tough questions from both sides -- and trying again to dispel what he called a conspiracy we put out a proposal that is common sense, modest, does not claim to solve every problem, is respectful of the second amendment, and the way it is described is that we're trying to take away everybody's
he heard from: taya kyle, the wife of murdered american sniper chris kyle, the thing is that the laws that we create don't stop these horrific things from happening. gabby giffords, the congresswoman shot five years ago and her husband, astronaut mark kelly, gabby and i are both gun owners. we take gun ownership very seriously. conspicuously missing from the crowd at george mason university however, the n-r-a leadership, which declined c-n-n's invitation. i'm happy to meet with them, i'm happy to talk to them but the conversation has to be based on fact and truth and what we're actually proposing. the president's executive actions would expand background checks and narrow the so-called gun show loophole, which exempts many small and private sellers from keeping records. an arizona sheriff wanted to know how that would keep guns from the hands of criminals or the mentally ill.. look crime is always going to be with us, so i think it's important to us not to suggest that, if we can't solve every crime, we shouldn't solve any crimes.
