LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- President Obama is expected to announce a new executive action regarding background checks on gun sales.

Gun control advocates are expecting the new actions to be revealed next week, ahead of President Obama's annual State of the Union address, set for Jan. 12.

Aside from the background check provision, people familiar with Obama's plans say his new gun control announcement will include new funding for government agencies to better enforce existing gun laws.
