Biden, who was tasked by President Obama to recommend ways to deter gun-related violence after 26 people died last month at a Connecticut school shooting, will be joined by: Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, Deputy U.S. Attorney General Jim Cole, Sen. Timothy M. Kaine (D-VA), and Rep. Robert C. “Bobby” Scott (D-3rd) for a discussion expected to begin at 11:00 AM.

The discussion will take place at the VCU Student Commons, and will include gun-safety experts. The event is not open to the public.

    I hope they address the mental health of the individuals committing these mass murderers, and the perscription drugs they are on. I hope they take into consideration the facts, and stop selling their fear against inanimate objects.

    I agree, keepitmoist.

    Biden says in the even of societal collapse/natural disaster, a shotgun is more practical than an assault rifle.
