Dr. Alveda King, whose uncle Martin Luther King, Jr. was cut down by an assassin’s bullet in 1968, tells Newsmax TV in an exclusive interview that President Barack Obama has gone too far in proposing “extreme measures” that aren’t likely to succeed in turning the tide of gun violence in America.

“I believe that you can have some normal restraints even for use of guns just like people have driver’s licenses,” King said on Wednesday. “So there should be some regulation, of course — for everything including guns — but the extreme measures that are being recommended by the current administration and the political world will not solve the problems.”
