Biden to send gun proposals to Obama by Tuesday
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.
