US President Barack Obama has said that he would take unilateral action to tackle the problem of gun violence in the US.
According to The Washington Post, Obama will meet US Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch next week to finalise a series of new gun control measures and will announce his package of proposals.
One of the proposals includes unlicensed gun dealers to get licenses and background checks on potential buyers.
The change is aimed at occasional dealers, including some who sell online frequently or rent tables at gun shows but do not have a storefront.
Obama began examining how he could tighten the nation’s gun rules after October’s mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Ore.
