Obama Says His Endorsement Depends on Gun Control Stance

HeadlineJan 08, 2016

President Obama, meanwhile, has said his support for the next president will depend on the candidate’s stance on gun control measures. In a New York Times op-ed published today, Obama writes: “I will not campaign for, vote for or support any candidate, even in my own party, who does not support common-sense gun reform.” This comes on the heels of Obama’s televised town hall Thursday night, in which he defended the use of executive action to implement new regulations on online gun sales and other measures intended to curb gun violence.
