WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is seeking to rally support from the public and the law enforcement community for his calls to ban assault weapons and require universal background checks for gun buyers.

Obama is pitching his anti-gun violence agenda Monday in Minnesota, a Democratic-leaning state where officials have been studying ways to reduce gun-related incidents for several years.

His visit to the Minneapolis Police Department’s Special Operations Center marks the first time Obama is campaigning on his controversial proposals outside of Washington.

The fate of Obama’s proposals on Capitol Hill remains uncertain, with many Republican and conservative Democratic lawmakers and the National Rifle Association, opposed to reforming the nation’s gun laws.
