Video: Vice President Joe Biden Hints at Banning Private Gun Sales
Vice President Joe Biden has been meeting with groups on both sides of the gun control debate this week and announced today that he would be making his recommendations on gun violence to President Obama next Tuesday.
Biden may have given the public a preview of next week when he suggested today that the Obama administration is considering outlawing unregulated "private" gun sales, reports CNN.
Biden said: "And so the kinds of things that there's an emerging set of recommendations, not coming from me but coming from the groups we've met with. And I'm going to focus on the ones that relate primarily to gun ownership and the type of weapons can be owned."
"And one is, there is a surprising, so far, a surprising recurrence of suggestions that we have universal background checks. Not just close the gun show loophole but total, universal background checks, including private sales."
