WASHINGTON, Jan. 8 (UPI) -- The National Rifle Association is one of many groups the president's task force on gun violence is meeting with this week, a White House spokesman said Tuesday.

With more attention falling on gun control measures such as the assault rifle ban and high-capacity magazines, White House press secretary Jay Carney was asked at his daily briefing if the issue of cultural factors, such as violent video games and movies, has dropped in priority as the administration formulates a package of responses to the nation's gun violence problem.
