Biden Touts Gun Restrictions in CT Speech

After advising his wife to break gun laws


Vice President Biden warned Congress on Thursday that there is a "moral price to be paid for inaction" on revamping the nation's gun laws.

Biden's remarks came as he took his push for the Obama administration's gun-control proposal to a conference in Danbury, Conn., several miles from the site of mass shooting in Newtown more than two months ago that reignited a national debate on gun laws.

Before speaking at the forum Thursday, Biden met with the families of two victims of the Dec. 14 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School that left 20 children and six school employees dead.
