Guns

Has not pushed for gun control measures as president. Signed laws letting people carry concealed weapons in national parks and in checked bags on Amtrak trains. Favors "robust steps, within existing law" to address gun issues, White House says. Support for banning on assault-type weapons. Backed tougher gun control as Illinois and U.S. senator.
