White House Press Secretary Jay Carney announced this afternoon that President Obama will unveil a "concrete package" of gun control proposals including assault weapons bans, high capacity ammunition magazine bans, and closing loopholes on background checks.

Carney said that the president will be joined by Vice President Joe Biden as well as children who wrote to the president after the Newtown shootings.

"They will be joined by children around the country expressing their concerns about gun violence and school safety, along with their parents," Carney confirmed.

President Obama specifically mentioned children during his December speech in response to the shooting.
