Washington, D.C. (NNCNOW.com) - President Obama's visit to Minneapolis on Monday will center around talks of reducing gun violence, according to a White House official.

“President Obama will discuss with local leaders and law enforcement officials about his comprehensive set of commonsense ideas to reduce gun violence," Joanna Rosholm said in a statement.

"Minneapolis is a city that has taken important steps to reduce gun violence and foster a conversation in the community about what further action is needed," Rosholm added.

The President is also expected to visit with community members to talk about what additional steps can be taken at the federal level to reduce gun violence.

The last time the President was in Minnesota was last summer for a fundraising event.
