Biden says Consensus Emerging on Gun Safety

BIDEN

By MATTHEW DALY, Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden says he will deliver recommendations to President Barack Obama on steps to curb violence by Tuesday.

Biden says a consensus is emerging over proposals such as tightening background checks and banning high-capacity ammunition magazines.

Biden told a group of sportsmen and wildlife interest groups that he has “never quite heard so much talk about high-capacity magazines” as he has since last month’s horrific mass shooting in Newtown, Conn.

Biden was meeting with the groups Thursday as the White House. He was set to meet later with the National Rifle Association, the powerful pro-gun organization.
