action to require more background checks on gun sales in the country. tonight, the white house unveiled gun control measures after a series of high-profile mass shootings. the white house says background checks will be required across the nation for all people who buy weapons online and at gun shows. right now, some of those sellers don't have to have a license to sell guns. only those who hold federal licenses are required to conduct background checks on people buying guns. the f-b-i will also add 230 agents to process those background checks. "1:11 what i asked my team to do is to see what more we can do to strengthen our enforcement and prevent guns from falling into the wrong hands, to make sure that criminals, people who are mentally unstable and those who could pose a danger to themselves or others are less likely to get a gun." president obama directed his team to present him with options after the umpqua community college shooting that killed nine people in october. just last month, a
couple killed 14 people at a social services center in san bernardino, california. kcrg-tv9's jill kasparie joins us on the story. jill, you talked with some eastern iowa gun shop owners today? they've been watching congress and the president as this topic of gun reform keeps surfacing. the store owners say they are very safe with all sales. bob ducharme spends a lot of time with his customers at his vinton gun store. "opened a little shop up inside my house and have been here for two years and at gun shows every weekend and store monday for roger howe at his gun store in durant. " 9:16:06 i have been in the business of firearms since 1986, some coming up on 30 years. and i have been around a lot of other dealers and private individuals buying guys." both have a passion for waiting to see what the president has to say. with the focus coming on background checks the two walked us through how it works in iowa. " 9:05:16 if it's a handgun, you have to go to the sheriff's department or your local
sheriff, get your permit." during that process the sheriff's office conducts a background check. if it's a long-gun - the store owners say they call the fbi from the store to do a background check. "9:19:25 from that they decide whether the person does or does not pass the background check. from there they can give us three responses, approve, deny or delay " howe says licensed dealers go through the same process at a gun show. "9:17:50 it's 100 percent the same identification, permits, called in, background checks, have to pass the background checks or they are not allowed to get the gun" but the president's executive order would make sure more gun sellers - even those online or at gun shows- are licensed. ducharme says with all of the attention on guns, he wants to point out that guns aren't the problem. "9:06:30 there again it's not the guns, it's the nutcases getting ahold of them." we reached out to both the linn county sheriff and the cedar rapids police chief for comment on this topic. both said they wanted to see the full proposal from the
president before giving their opinions. beth and bruce? thanks, jill. president obama will formally announce the executive actions tomorrow morning. he will deliver a speech from the east room, starting at 10:40. you can watch it right here on kcrg-tv9. iowa city has a new mayor. today, the city council held a special meeting and selected jim throgmorton to serve as mayor. he's a retired university of iowa professor who's beginning his second term on the council. throgmorton replaces mayor matt hayek, who had to step down at the end of his city council term. the city council also chose kingsley botchway as mayor pro tem. earlier this evening, quentin hart became the first african- american mayor of waterloo. an overflow crowd of family, friends and others gave him a standing ovation when he entered the city council chambers. hart won a run-off election last month against former mayor tim hurley. two new dubuque city council members took the reigns tonight. mayor roy buol
