The Brady Campaign, a gun control advocacy group, praised Vice President Biden's gun violence taskforce after a meeting with Biden Wednesday. Dan Gross, president of Brady, said the task force shows the White House is serious about working to prevent future gun violence with legislation and other government action.
"Their true commitment is evident in not only their words, but also their actions. There is a powerful consensus building in this country which is reflected in the meetings of this task force," Gross said in a statement. "We are having the conversation the American public wants us to have."
Gross brought relatives of gun violence victims to the White House. Biden is scheduled to meet with the National Rifle Association and other gun rights advocacy groups later in the week.
