SOTU: Gun Violence Plan Makes No Mention of Entertainment

Report Released with Obama Address Mum on Media 2/13/2013 4:34 AM Eastern

 

The president's priorities for reducing gun violence, outlined in a report on strengthening the middle class and the country that was released in concert with his State of the Union Address, makes no mention of media.

He also made no mention of the media in the portion of his speech devoted to efforts to address gun violence.

In a section on reducing gun violence, the report outlines four "commonsense" steps the country can take now to "better protect our children and communities."

They are: "(1) closing background check loopholes to keep guns out of dangerous hands; (2) banning military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and taking other commonsense steps to reduce gun violence; (3) making schools safer; and (4) increasing access to mental health services."
