Biden is trying to rally support for the administration’s proposals to curb gun violence, saying there will be a moral price to pay for inaction.
Biden said America has changed its views of gun control since the Dec. 14 massacre of 26 people inside Sandy Hook Elementary School.
“Common sense facts are these assault weapons are unnecessary and dangerous weapons that put our law enforcement personnel at risk,” Biden said. “You guys know a lot of departments around the country. I’ve been working with the police agencies for 35 years. I am going to say something outrageous: You’ve had no better friend over the last 35 years than me.”
