Vice President Joe Biden insisted to a subdued audience Tuesday that he and President Barack Obama "haven't given up" on gun control.

But his remarks came at the first White House event since the Senate's failed April 17 background checks vote. And all that he had to show gun control supporters by way of progress was a list of completed or mostly completed executive actions — and a set of new guidebooks for churches and schools on how to deal with a mass shooting situation.
