Biden: Obama may act alone to combat gun violence

WASHINGTON, D.C. -

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 school children were killed.



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



"The president is going to act. Executive orders, executive action, can be taken," Biden told reporters before meetings with groups representing survivors of mass shootings. "We haven't decided what this is yet, but we're compiling it all with the help of the attorney general and all the rest of the Cabinet members."



Legislative action also is needed, Biden said.



"I'm convinced we can affect the well-being of millions of Americans, and take thousands of people out of harm's way, if we act responsibly," he said.



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.

If someone will get a gun they will get one. No one will be able to stop them.

The last line of this is very informative.  It lets me know that I only lhave a few weeks left to go buy the gun I've been considering getting.  You know, I still can't understand the mindset of the people who voted this man into office.  It is only common sense that gun control only takes away the ability of law abiding people to defend themselves against the criminals who are still going to be able to get their hands on guns.  No one will ever convince me that if 1 or 2 employees at the school in Newtown had been armed, that the same number of children would have been taken from their families.  You can bet though that Obama's children will be protected by armed guards wherever they go.  It is only children outside of his own that don't deserve to be protected from the bad guys.

I don't think it's right for him to make this decision. I am all for gun control but there's a reason things need to be voted on.

This is the reason I say it is scary. I believe it is sowmthing that needs to be voted on. Majority rules... It's fair that way.
