Biden: Sense of Urgency Over Gun Control Measures

by JOANN LOVIGLIO, ABC News  |  published on February 13, 2013

Vice President Joe Biden says there’s a real sense of urgency from lawmakers and police about enacting gun control measures.

Biden was joined Monday at Girard (juh-RAHRD’) College by law enforcement officials, U.S. Deputy Attorney General James Cole and Democratic members of Pennsylvania’s congressional delegation.

Biden says ideas like universal background checks for gun purchases have widespread support.

The Obama administration is pushing for new gun control measures in the wake of the school shooting in Newtown, Conn., on Dec. 14.

Proposals include a new ban on military-style weapons, a ban on high-capacity magazines carrying more than 10 rounds of ammunition, and background checks for all gun sales.

Federal lawmakers joining Biden included Reps. Bob Brady, Chaka Fattah and Allyson Schwartz and Sen. Bob Casey.
