WASHINGTON — Vice President Joe Biden may be so fully engrossed in gun control policy that it’s starting to impact his vocabulary.
“I’m shooting for Tuesday,” he said of providing his recommendations to Obama at a meeting with entertainment industry executives. “I hope I get it done by then.”
It was one of a pair of gun metaphors Biden employed while discussing the issue Friday.
“We know that there is no silver bullet,” he said, before listing the groups he’s met with to study ways to avoid another Sandy Hook shooting.
He added that gun violence is a “problem beyond quote-unquote massacres.”
Biden also addressed his meeting with the National Rifle Association Thursday, which the group deemed unproductive in a statement later.
“I thought we had a very straightforward, productive meeting,” he said, declining to comment on their statement. “I don’t have any comment about what anybody said at meetings.”
