>>> president obama weighed in once again today in the fight over guns. in his weekly address the president said each of his proposals to reduce gun violence should get a vote in congress, including a ban on assault weapons . another strong supporter of such a ban is new york's mayor michael bloomberg . he spoke about gun control exclusively with david gregory for tomorrow's "meet the press."
>> i don't think there's ever been an issue where the public has spoken so clearly where congress hasn't eventually understood and done the right thing.
>> you don't think the assault weapons ban is going to pass?
>> well, look, we've been fighting since 2007 to get a vote. we are going to have a vote on -- for sure on assault weapons . and we're going to have a vote on background checks . and if we were to get background checks only it wouldn't be as good as if we got post. but we demanded a plan, and then we demanded a vote. we've got the plan. we're going to get the vote.
>> you can see the full conversation with bloomberg tomorrow on "meet the press," as well as david's interview with wayne lapierre , executive vice president of the national rifle association .
