President Barack Obama took his gun control agenda to Minneapolis, a city that's had success curbing gun violence.
The president met with elected leaders, police, and victims of gun violence Monday to discuss his plan to ban the sale of so-called assault weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines. He also discussed mandating background checks on all gun buyers.
Obama said he feels like there's a consensus building among Americans to pass new gun laws. He called on U.S. citizens to put pressure on Congress.
"Changing the status quo is never easy... This time it's got to be done," he said.
Congress has yet to consider any gun control proposals.
