WASHINGTON (AP) -President Barack Obama plans today to finalize a set of new executive actions to tighten the nation's gun laws.

Obama will meet today with Attorney General Loretta Lynch and other top law enforcement officials to sign off on a package of proposals aimed at curbing gun violence and cracking down on unregulated gun sales.

Gun rights groups are likely to challenge the proposals in court.

They include expanding checks on gun sales.
