There will be a round two on gun control legislation.
At least that's what we might glean from Vice President Joe Biden's op-ed Sunday in the Houston Chronicle on the final day of the three-day meeting of the National Rifle Association in Houston.
"For too long, members of Congress have been afraid to vote against the wishes of the NRA, even when the vast majority of their constituents support what the NRA opposes," he said. "That fear has become such an article of faith that even in the face of evidence to the contrary, a number of senators voted against basic background checks, against a federal gun trafficking statute and against other common-sense measures because they feared a backlash."
President Barack Obama said after the defeat of the gun control legislation that he would continue ti push Congress to act in the wake of multiple mass shootings, including the one in Newtown, Conn.
"In the end, I believe we will prevail. And those who wrote off gun safety legislation last month will come to realize that moment wasn't the end at all," Biden wrote. "It was the turning point."
