Biden: Consensus Emerging On Gun Safety

WASHINGTON (January 10, 2013)--Vice President Joe Biden said Thursday he will deliver recommendations to President Barack Obama on steps to curb gun violence by Tuesday.

Biden said a consensus is emerging over proposals such as tightening background checks and banning high-capacity ammunition magazines.

He told a group of sportsmen and wildlife interest groups that he has "never quite heard so much talk about high-capacity magazines" as he has since last month's horrific mass shooting in Newtown, Conn.

Biden met with the groups Thursday at the White House and was set to meet later with the National Rifle Association, the powerful pro-gun organization.
