US Vice President Joe Biden says he will deliver recommendations on curbing gun violence to President Barack Obama by Tuesday. According to the vice president, a consensus is emerging on proposals such as tightening background checks for gun buyers and banning high-capacity ammunition magazines. Obama hopes to announce his administration's steps to address gun violence shortly after he is sworn in for a second term on Jan. 21.
