VIDEO: President Obama Expected to Call for More Gun Control in Tuesday IACP Speech

President Obama will travel to Chicago Tuesday to address a meeting of police chiefs from around the world and he's expected to call for stricter national gun laws.

White House aides say the president will address the International Association of Chiefs of Police and he's well aware of the overwhelming problem of gun violence in the city.

He plans to address that and the broader topic of violence and how police can work more effectively to deal with it in their communities, WGN TV reports.

Wonderful. More false narratives about "gun control" instead of BEHAVIOR control from the guy who brought us, "Cops were acting stupidly." Any chief who would stand on the stage with this embarrassment of a President is an embarrassment to the badge. Enough already of this loser. Hasn't he done enough damage after his recent endorsement of the Black Lives Matter movement? Gun control to members of the BLM means the disarming of police. Is anyone paying attention out there and doing their homework?

A good chief would walk out on that speech.

Can't believe the Chiefs Asso is having this POS speaking at their convention- they no longer hold any credibility in my opinion.

Police chiefs and sheriff's alike must tell Obama where to stick it. Citizens have the constitutional right to own what ever arms they want. I firmly believed this before I retired from police work as did my upstanding department.

What a moron. I would like to think that a U.S. President would have some common sense and realize that criminals are criminals, and they don't care about any laws, espcially gun laws. He knows he's just trying to appease the dems. and there stupid agenda. Screw that I pack everywhere I go. I'll do the samething when I retire.

The IACP has apparently become a tool of the Socialist Democratic party.
They can kiss my retired Officer ass!!
And "0" can stick his "disarm the People" agenda up his.

Want to stop most of the gun violence? Make sure young black males are disarmed.

I'm a Vietnam veteran with 27 years military service (retired) and thirty plus years law enforcement retiring as Special Agent from my State Attorney General's office. Any law enforcement officer, military soldier, citizen or other legal person or persons who do not believe in and does not do everything in their power and/or authority to protect the second amendment is a traitor to this country and an enemy of freedom and should be stripped of their citizenship and deported. Both military soldiers and law enforcement officers are sworn to uphold the constitution of the United States against all enemies. Any person, whomever they may be, who threatens the second amendment or any part of the United States constitution is an enemy of this country regardless of his title and that includes the president of the United States. If you don't have the guts and integrity to honor this very basic duty do not put the uniform on. Don't be a political whore and sell out the people you serve.

Just another political pundent, that finds it easier to promise gun control as a way to deal with these issues. Instead of doing something that would really help, like fix our broken mental health system. Oh, that's right, that would cost money and with an election coming up, the last thing to do is spend money. The voters don't like it. So lets give the illusion of fixing the issue with more gun laws, they don't cost nearly as much to implement.

"stricter national gun laws" How about so details???
