Here’s her piece from earlier in the day on Cuomo, O’Malley and how Democratic governors with 2016 aspirations are handling their respective pushes for gun laws - http://abcn.ws/UN4pRZ

Assault Weapons Ban - The Difference Between ’94 and ’13? – Chris Good looks at how the bill actually passed nine years ago – “Perhaps the largest difference was that Congress didn’t bring up the assault weapons ban as its own bill. Clinton pushed the ban as part of a much broader crime bill — a signature domestic-policy measure for his first term, one that focused on crime in general, not just guns. http://abcn.ws/10xCI7z

Obama To Unveil Road Map To Halt Gun Violence – President Obama is expected to detail a broad plan this week to curb gun violence, setting the stage for what could be the largest Congressional battle over gun legislation in decades. http://abcn.ws/XB8xa8 (Mary Bruce)

Meanwhile, Rosa de Lauro  is proposing the government buy back assault weapons in exchange for a $2,000 tax credit. http://abcn.ws/VYZroO (Mary McGuire)

Gun Play  – An app for smartphones released by the National Rifle Association was originally slated for children ages four and up. But that age recommendation was upped today. http://abcn.ws/VYXrNa (Joanna Stern)
