President Obama will deliver a statement at 11:45 am this morning announcing his new gun control task force, which will be led by Vice President Biden.
Obama will appear in the White House briefing room, and it seems he may take some questions, given that the White House says that Press Secretary Jay Carney will not brief today as planned.
Carney said Tuesday that Obama supports an upcoming push by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) to revive the “assault weapons” ban, as well as restrictions on high capacity ammunition clips and efforts to close the gun show “loophole.”
Biden will also be on hand for the remarks. I will live stream the event.
