VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: I want to make it clear that we are not going to get caught up in the notion, “unless we can do everything, we’re going to do nothing.” It’s critically important we act and there’s certain things I know a great deal about. Almost all of your organizations, I’ve read what you have published and spoken to and there is a pretty wide consensus or three or four or five things in the gun safety area that could and should be done around this table.
You should know that tomorrow I’ve also invited the gun owners and the NRA to come and make their case, as well, before us. I want it clear to the American public that, on behalf of the President, we’re reaching out to all — all parties on whatever side of this debate you fall.
But the president is going to act. There are executives orders, there’s executive action that can be taken. We haven’t decided what that is yet, but we’re compiling it all with the help of the Attorney General and the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action that we believe is required. So, I appreciate you very much being here and with that, what i’d like to do is thank the press for coming on in and maybe we can get to work okay?
