U.S. President Barack Obama is to deliver remarks at the White House Wednesday on policies to address gun violence, days after a mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school.
He will outline "the policy process the administration will pursue in the wake of the Newtown tragedy," the White House said.
Since the killings, Obama has vowed action, but stopped short of detailing specific policies.
Obama is expected to name Vice President Joe Biden to lead a task force to examine potential tougher gun laws and other measures. Earlier in the week, Obama met with Biden and several Cabinet secretaries to address possible action.
The killings in Newtown of 20 children aged 6 and 7, along with six adults in a school and the gunman's mother have led to a national debate on U.S. gun laws and mental health care.
