Law enforcement struggles to enforce current gun laws – Jake Tapper previews his ride along with L.A. officers

President Obama heads to Colorado today to make his case for Congress to take action on gun control. He's going to meet with law enforcement and community leaders at the Denver Police Academy, not far from the site of the Aurora movie theater massacre.

The president is pushing for universal background checks for gun buyers, and he's calling on Congress to at least vote on an assault weapons ban and limits on large-capacity magazines.

Colorado just expanded background checks and placed restrictions on magazines.

How are the gun laws that are already on the books enforced? Jake Tapper, host of "The Lead" and CNN chief Washington correspondent, talks with John Berman and Brooke Baldwin on "Starting Point" this morning to share a preview of his ride along with Los Angeles law enforcement to see how difficult it is to abide by current gun laws.

Don't miss Jake Tapper's full report on "The Lead" today at 4:00pm Eastern on CNN.
