Tommy Tucker WL first news Niedermayer CBS correspondent joins us now. The president is expected to address the nation a -- -- on vice president Biden's recommendations. And what are we expected to hear from him. Well officials here at the White House that tells CBS news this morning Tommy that the president will announce a call for LA assault weapons ban. He wanted ten -- limit on high capacity ammo magazines. It also call for criminal and mental health background checks on all gun buyers to a close the so called. Gun show loophole he's also going to propose federal funds for school systems. That choose to post armed security officers. -- in terms of armed executive order and in terms of these measures whatever ones that have to test. A can -- in the congress. I need to draw a balance between those in which are likely to take which is route. Okay well all of the things I just listed the the band the limit on bullets in the high capacity ammo clips. The criminal and background checks mental health background checks on all gun buyers. That would all have to be passed by congress and realistically. The administration believes that the background check provision. Probably has the best chance of ball now when it comes to executive orders things that the president plans to do on his own Tommy. We -- told that if he's going to call for something the NRA has vehemently opposed more research into gun violence. And tighter enforcement of existing laws going after people rely on background checks. And big gun sellers who don't apply the background checks of the gun lobby and its congressional allies by and the like this entire package. What is the NRA's position on the background checks and and the enforcement of penalties will when it comes people lying on the background checks is an area against that as well. Well you know I think I'd have to refer you to them frankly I'm not exactly sure. How they feel about it they they don't want. Any expansion of anti gun laws they've made it clear they don't want any changes in any gun laws so to the extent that that would constitute a change -- it would be a big one. I would assume that you can get in trouble assuming things that they would fight. I does thank you paid anything were misled you wanna add before we let you go. No I think that they you know that the White House is going to go all out on this this is the most far reaching set of -- proposals that we've seen. We think going back to use some of the laws that were enacted. After president Kennedy was killed in the 1960s. To drive his point home and -- to try to underscore. But seeing that this is about people and not about taking guns away the president going to surround himself. With a group of children who have been -- writing him letters since the the Connecticut tragedy. Thank you Peter we appreciate your time have a great day. All right -- and that's coming.
