Biden continues talks on gun control proposals

Vice President Joe Biden will meet Tuesday with retired military officials at the White House to discuss the administration’s proposals to reduce gun violence.

President Obama introduced a package of proposals, including banning assault weapons, limiting the capacity of ammunition magazines, requiring background checks on all gun purchases and spending millions more dollars on training, research and counseling. Much of the sweeping package needs approval from a divided, unenthusiastic Congress. 

On Wednesday, Biden will deliver remarks on the same topic at a meeting of the National Association of Attorneys General in Washington.
