Despite saying Obama wasn’t going to come after our arms, Biden is heading up a task force to restrict them.
At the first meeting, Biden said he would meet later with gun owners, the National Rifle Association and representatives of the electronic games industry. He said the administration is seeking input from a wide array of groups.
He added: "The president is going to act. There are executive orders – executive action that can be taken. We haven’t decided what that is yet, but we’re compiling it all with the help of the attorney general and – and all the rest of the Cabinet members – as well as legislative action, we believe, is required."
Attorney General Eric Holder sat next to Biden at the meeting. Executive orders could take effect relatively quickly, while legislative proposals would take much longer to wend through the legislative process.
