White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Tuesday that Biden is considering taking executive action on gun control in the wake of the Colorado shootings as well as seeking to work with Congress to strengthen background checks and reenact an assault weapons ban.
Speaking to reporter on Air Force One as Biden traveled to Ohio, Psaki also said that Biden has spoken to Colorado Gov. Jared Polis (D) to offer condolences for the 10 lives lost.
While stressing that Biden wants to work with Congress, Psaki also did not rule out the president taking some action on his own, though she did not specify what those might be.
