HONOLULU — President Obama will press ahead with a set of executive actions on guns next week despite growing concerns in the US over terrorism that have dampened some Americans’ enthusiasm for tighter firearms restrictions.
The president will meet with Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch on Monday to finalize a series of new gun control measures, and will announce his package of proposals soon after that, according to several individuals who asked for anonymity because the plan is not yet public.
