President Barack Obama will review in a matter of "weeks not months" final recommendations on how he can impose new gun restrictions without going through Congress, and he plans to campaign aggressively next year for the Democratic nominee to replace him, a top aide said.

Gun violence is "probably the issue that has touched him most personally over the course of his presidency," White House communications director Jen Psaki said at a meeting hosted by Bloomberg News in Washington.
