(WDAY TV) -- President Barack Obama says he knows gun control is an uphill battle in Congress.

He's looking at actions he can take on his own to confront firearm violence, and will present that plan within days. Ideas are on the table to strengthen background checks, ban assault weapons, and limit high-capacity magazines.

Those proposals face opposition from the NRA, and it's supporters in Congress. Vice President Joe Biden's been heading a task force to reduce violence, after the Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre.

The Newtown shooting killed 27 people, mostly children.
