HONOLULU (AP) — President Barack Obama says he can’t “sit around and do nothing.” So one of his early actions in the new year will be to meet Monday with Attorney General Loretta Lynch to discuss how to make it harder for “a dangerous few” to get their hands on guns.

Possible executive action will be part of the discussion.

Obama says in his weekly radio address that he gets many letters from parents, teachers and children about gun violence.
