Obama, Biden To Talk Guns With Local Law Enforcement Personnel

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden on Monday will discuss gun violence with police chiefs and sheriffs representing four major American cities, CNN reported. The meeting will likely center around the package of gun control policies unveiled by the White House earlier this month.

From CNN:

Obama and Biden will meet in the Roosevelt Room with representatives from the Major Cities Chiefs Association and Major County Sheriffs Association. Police chiefs of Aurora, Colorado, Oak Creek, Wisconsin, and Newtown, Connecticut — all cities that experienced mass shootings last year – will attend.

Attorney General Eric Holder and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano will also attend the meeting.
