Vt. -- Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont laid out an agenda for gun control.
The chairman of the judiciary committee discussed the agenda for his committee during a talk at Georgetown Law School, prior to President Obama's unveiling of his gun control measures.
The Vermont democrat, a gun owner, says he does believe the federal laws should be stronger to combat trafficking.
"Now, like many other gun owners, I believe we should strengthen our federal laws to combat gun trafficking. We should ensure that those seeking to purchase guns do so with real background checks. That's only part of what's needed," said Leahy.
Leahy says the inability to solve the whole gun violence problem shouldn't keep us from trying to fix part of it.
