Returning home, the President calls for an end to gun violence

Our second story OutFront – Obama heads home to talk gun control.

The president took his push for tougher gun violence to his hometown of Chicago today, a city that has been struggling to get a grip on escalating gun violence.

He cited statistics that show that 65 people under the age of 18 were killed by gun violence last year, calling it “the equivalent of a Newtown every four months” and repeating his line that these proposals “deserve a vote.”

Outfront tonight are CNN Contributor Reihan Salam, who is also a writer for National Review, and Former White House deputy press secretary Bill Burton, who is also the co-founder of Priorities USA, a pro-Obama super PAC.
