— A Connecticut group said Vice President Joe Biden has offered to talk with families of the victims of last month’s school shooting who would like to speak with him personally.

Biden is leading an Obama administration review of gun safety laws following the massacre of 20 first-graders and six women at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown.

Sandy Hook Promise, which recently changed its name from Newtown United, said in an email to the families that it could arrange a call or put relatives in touch with Biden’s office. Group co-founder Tim Makris said Saturday it passed along the offer as part of its mission to aid the families.

White House officials have said the families will have an opportunity to share their views before President Barack Obama makes any decisions.
