President Barack Obama is taking his push for tighter gun measures directly to the American people tonight, in a televised town hall meeting that comes two days after his emotional announcement of new executive actions to cut gun violence.

Obama will headline the “Guns in America” event exclusively on CNN live at 7 p.m. to press for public support for the executive measures he announced on Tuesday, which include a bid to narrow the so-called “gun-show loophole” on background checks.
