There’s no doubt that U.S. has a problem with guns, and President Obama is looking to toughen U.S. gun laws before he makes his exit from the White House.
On Tuesday, the White House will unveil several measures to help curb gun violence.

Some of the measures include requiring an expanded number of small-scale gun sellers to be licensed — and therefore conduct background checks — whenever selling a weapon. This wouldn’t close the so-called gun show loophole, though it has the potential to narrow it. There is also expected to be tighter rules imposed for reporting guns that get lost or stolen on their way to a potential buyer.
Of course a lot of gun enthusiasts aren’t please with the possible changes. But more than likely, Congress will not improve any new gun legislations before the upcoming election, so they’ll be pleased about that.
