Biden to Meet NRA

First the fiscal cliff, now the NRA—Joe Biden must really like impossible negotiations. The vice president will meet with the powerful gun lobbying group on Thursday as the leader of President Obama’s gun violence task force. Formed in the wake of the mass shooting in Newtown, Conn., Biden’s task force is said to be working on significant changes to the nation’s gun laws, reportedly to be sent to the president by the end of the month. The NRA, which had defiantly rejected calls for stricter gun laws immediately after the shooting, said on Tuesday it would send a representative to the meeting “to hear what they have to say.”
