US President Barack Obama speaks as police chief Roger White listens during a meeting with local law enforcement officials and community leaders in Denver, Colorado, on April 3, 2013 as he continues asking the American people to join him in calling on Congress to pass common-sense measures to reduce gun violence. The president has demanded votes on measures including a requirement for background checks on all gun purchases, limits on high capacity ammunition magazines, a reinstated assault weapons ban, new gun trafficking laws, and new school safety plans. But the assault weapons ban push appears certain to fail to get sufficient support in the Senate, following a huge campaign by the gun lobby and opposition from Republicans and Democrats from conservative and rural areas.
