Joe Biden To Lead a Review of U.S. Gun Policies.
The White House will not be announcing a new guy control policy anytime soon, but the president will reportedly ask Vice President Joe Biden to lead an administration-wide review that could point the way to future proposals. President Obama will make the announcement on Wednesday, appointing the VP to lead an "inter-agency process" that will examine all the current policies related to gun violence and one that would presumably devise new solutions that might prevent another tragedy like the Sandy Hook school shooting.
