As hundreds of protestors take to the streets protesting over stricter gun controls following the Sandy Hook School Massacre, questions are being asked about what President Obama intends to do about addressing the issue.

Speaking in Washington at a press event White House Press Secretary Jay Carney fielded an array of questions and said Obama remains committed to addressing the issue. He said.

Mr Carney went on to say President Barack Obama wants to reinstate an assault weapons ban and there could also be moves on ammunition and gun-sale loopholes.
