Biden to meet with NRA to discuss gun safety


WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Obama administration will meet today with the National Rifle Association along with gun retailers and owners groups, as officials look at ways to curb gun violence.

The NRA has sunk past gun control efforts and opposes any new ones. But yesterday, Vice President Joe Biden said the administration is considering its own executive action as well as measures by Congress, though he didn't offer specifics.

The meeting with the NRA is one of three Biden has scheduled for today, as he prepares to make recommendations on gun policy by the end of the month.
