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.

Isn't it funny how all those who don't want us to protect ourselves surround THEMSELVES w/people w/guns? Obama's daughters have armed protection at school- and Obama gets ARMED PROTECTION for the rest of his life. But fuck the rest of us - our lives aren't worth protecting - and we're asking to do it OURSELVES - not at taxpayers' expense!

I would be fine with it... Right after he gives up his and his families ARMED guards.

I also would gladly pay more taxes and no pay raises (military pay) right after him and the white house vote for themselves to not get pay increases... (And yes i've emailed the president this, i never got an answer though, Imagine that)
