Good evening from the WBRC FOX6 Newsroom. This is Jonathan Hardison with a look at the stories we're following for you tonight.

Gun control debate

We're not even five days into 2016 and we're about to be knee-deep in an argument that only gets hotter with every mass shooting we cover—gun control. President Obama tomorrow will announce some major new controls on gun sales and background checks, and tonight on WBRC FOX6 News at 9 our John Huddleston is looking at how this will affect you the next time you go to buy a firearm and he's talking to the mother of a gun violence victim who welcomes these changes.

Sexual assault at motel
New tonight on WBRC FOX6 News at 10 Josh Gauntt is working the story tonight that Tuscaloosa police are investigating after a woman tells officers she was sexually assaulted by a man who claimed to be the security guard for her hotel.
