White House Making Big Push For Gun Control This Week
The following is an excerpt from Fox News who is reporting that the White House is ramping up their gun control efforts this week.
The Obama administration is making a big push this week to gather ideas for a comprehensive plan to curb gun violence, amid reports that the Vice President Biden-led task force is homing in on a host of gun control measures.
Biden plans to meet Wednesday with gun safety organizations and gun violence victims’ groups, a White House aide told Fox News. The next day, he plans to meet with gun ownership groups as well as advocates for sportsmen.
Biden has also scheduled a meeting with representatives from the entertainment and video game industries.
The administration has vowed, by the end of the month, to produce a comprehensive plan for addressing gun violence in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., school shooting massacre in which 20 children and six adults were killed. The administration says mental health and the entertainment industry also may be examined.
But much of the discussion, and proposals from Democratic members of Congress, continue to center around gun control.
