Vice President Joe Biden will meet Thursday with the National Rifle Association, “one of many” gun rights groups he will meet with as part of the White House’s gun task force to reduce gun violence.
“We look forward to hearing from a variety of organizations,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said Tuesday.
“We are sending a representative to hear what they have to say,” Andrew Arulanandam, NRA spokesperson, told CBS News.
The NRA and the Obama administration have been at odds on its response to the latest mass shooting, which occurred in Newtown, Conn., last month. The powerful gun lobby proposed placing armed guards in schools, a proposal the president said he is “skeptical” about.
In addition to his meeting with the NRA, the vice president is meeting with gun safety advocates, victims’ groups and entertainment and video game industry officials. Cabinet secretaries are also holding meetings with parents, educators and mental health experts.
