Biden to make gun recommendations by Tuesday

Vice President Joe Biden appears to be taking his boss's demand for a quick recommendation on gun violence seriously.

Biden said Thursday that he will give recommendations to President Barack Obama by Tuesday on how to reduce gun violence in the United States. Biden is heading a task force that is meeting with numerous groups this week, including some for and some against stricter gun controls.

Obama, following a shooting that killed 20 children and six women at a Connecticut elementary school in December, had set a January deadline for the recommendations. Read more about the task force here.

    This has been in the works for a long time. "Never let a tragity to to waste" so once the guns are gone, what's left of our rights will be taken away. Good bye Republic !

    I would like to make a recommendation that Joe and Barry stick one in any orifice they like and see what happens.

    If Biden can get a good job done, he will be the most popular VICE-PRESIDENT ever in HISTORY

    False security.... if a person intends to commit mass murder I don't think a law limiting the number of bullets in his gun will matter too much..

    And the madman who does care about his magazine capacity.. will have to reload a couple of times.. haha that should take all of about 3 seconds.

    Knee jerk reaction to make the public #1 think they are doing something, and #2 give the public a false sense of security.

    There go the liberals again trying to be conservative.

    It will be interesting to see if one of the suggestions is a "No Buy List" for those on the a national database of prescription drug users that exists. Who knows, this very well may be a testing of the waters to see what reaction we have from the general public.
    Let this post please.

      I know addicts of every type, both illicit and prescription, never seen any of the illicit addicts act as crazy as the prescription addicts. I know pincussions, overhead welders, speed freaks, you name it.

    Hello to you @Hamsta. You are right on junkies of all kinds. The RX addicts should have problems getting refills with the Controlled Substance restrictions unless they are buying it on the streets.

      Good day to you Dazzle, I see CNN must be part of the gun control lobby. They must not have liked me referring to modern schools with a twelve foot razor wire fence and gun free zone signs as the gun control lobby's custom shooting gallery with advertisement that there is noone on site to shoot back. CNN might not like what I said but it is true, your kid is a sitting duck in a shooting gallery at today's modern schools. Anyone with some intelligence would recognize the same and realize that ripping down the fences so your kids can run, stop the advertising so the crazy person doesn't think that noone qill shoot back and put really big guns in every teacher's hand would your kid safer than these failed shooting galleries that the gun control whackos created so crazy people can have fun using kids as targets.

    If someone wants to kill they will find a way. And while i like Obama, he picked a very poor choice to get any kind of good recommendation. And how does one get a job in a hospital when they have such poor regard for modern medicine? That has puzzled me for awhile.

    Hello Hamsta, Dazzle, Chrissy, and Mary, I see that the bandaid on gun control goes on. I think the easiest way to curb guns in the wrong hands is to have a title with every gun. Every gun would have one. When you sell the gun at a gun show an officer would oversee the sale and/or the owner would have the new owner drivers license number or picture ID. If we can do it with voters rights how could republicans oppose? If the republicans can demand such strick rules at a poll, would oppose it in the killing of children at school or innocent unarmed people at a theater.
