Biden: Gun Control Votes 'Only the Beginning'

Wednesday, 27 Mar 2013 04:17 PM

Vice President Joe Biden says the expected Senate votes on gun control are only the beginning of the White House's fight on the issue.

The fate of gun control legislation is unclear. A vote on a Senate bill, including expanded background checks and harsher penalties for gun trafficking, is expected next month.

The White House also has been pushing for limits on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, but those provisions won't be part of the Senate bill. Instead they are to be offered as amendments, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says they don't have enough support to pass.

Biden says the American people are way ahead of their elected leaders on the issue. He said he and the president, quote, "intend to stay current with the American people."
