— Vice President Joe Biden is hearing personal stories of gun violence from representatives of victims groups and gun-safety organizations as he works on the Obama administration’s response to the shooting at a Connecticut elementary school.

Biden’s meeting Wednesday is part of a series he’s holding this week to build consensus around proposals to curb gun violence after the Dec. 14 shooting in Newtown, Conn., in which 20 schoolchildren were killed.

He told participants that he and President Barack Obama are determined to act.

Participants included the Brady Campaign to End Gun Violence and groups from Arizona, Illinois and Wisconsin. Also present were two survivors of the Virginia Tech shooting.

Obama has asked Biden to deliver policy proposal by the end of the month.

I wonder if he has listened to any personal stories about a gun saving someones life or property?

Do you think turning in your guns makes you safe? Learn from a country where their government takes away guns from its citizens. It's in big trouble as they are finding out in Australia.
