Just for show? NRA says Biden group set on gun control despite latest meetings


Vice President Biden was wrapping up a week of meetings Friday as he prepares to finalize his plan to curb gun violence — but the National Rifle Association claims the meetings are just a show, while the administration presses ahead with new gun-control measures.

The NRA, which sat down with Biden’s task force alongside other gun-owner groups Thursday, said it was “disappointed” with “how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the Second Amendment.”

While the administration has said the task force will look at a range of issues to address gun violence in the wake of the Connecticut school shooting — from mental health to the entertainment industry — the NRA said Thursday’s discussion focused “on proposed restrictions on lawful firearms owners — honest, taxpaying, hardworking Americans.”
