Obama demands new gun policies after shooting

US President Barack Obama on Wednesday demanded "concrete proposals" on curbing gun violence that he could send to Congress no later than January, in an urgent effort to build on the growing political consensus over gun restrictions following last week's massacre of children at a Connecticut school.


"This time, the words need to lead to action," Obama said, adding that he will push legislation "without delay," urging Congress to hold votes on the bill next year. (AP)
