WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama's broad effort to reduce gun violence will include proposed bans on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines as well as more than a dozen executive orders aimed at circumventing congressional opposition to stricter gun control.
 
Obama was to announce the measures Wednesday at a White House event that will bring together law enforcement officials, lawmakers and children who wrote the president about gun violence following last month's shooting of 20 young students and six adults at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn.
 
The broad package Obama will unveil will also include efforts to stop bullying and boost availability of mental health services.
 
But Congress would have to approve the bans on assault weapons and ammunition magazines holding more than 10 bullets, along with a requirement for universal background checks on gun buyers. Some gun control advocates worry that opposition from Republicans and conservative Democrats, as well as the National Rifle Association, will be too great to overcome.

This article indicates that "Congress would have to approve the bans on assault weapons and ammunition magazines holding more than 10 bullets, along with a requirement for universal background checks," and that there are "more than a dozen executive orders aimed at circumventing congressional opposition to stricter gun control."

I'm banking on the Executive order proposals being more drastic than the ones put before Congress. This really makes me wonder what he's got in mind for the former.
