WASHINGTON, Jan. 10 (Xinhua) -- U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said on Thursday he will present proposals of the White House gun- control task force to President Barack Obama by next Tuesday.
Biden, leading the White House's gun-control task force assigned by Obama last month, said he is committed to have all the recommendations presented to Obama by next Tuesday.
Biden made the remarks before he met with sportsmen and wildlife interest groups on Thursday amid a week of meetings with shareholders of the complicated gun issue in the country.
"There's no singular solution to how we deal with the kind of things that happened up in Newtown, or in Colorado, or just the general gun violence that exists in America today," said Biden.
Biden also mentioned "a surprising recurrence of suggestions" on universal background checks during his meetings with gun violence victims groups and gun safety organizations this week.
"Not just close the gun show loophole, but total universal background checks, including during private sales," said he.
Biden also suggested that the federal government revamp the way of data collecting to better evaluate the problem of gun violence.
Biden is set to hold a meeting later on Thursday with representatives from gun rights groups, including the National Rifle Association (NRA). The country's largest gun rights organization and lobby group has refused to support new gun- control legislation and instead called for armed guards for every school in the country, as the response of the gun industry.
Twenty school kids and six adults were killed by one shooter in Sandy Hook Elementary shooting rampage in Newtown, Connecticut State, on Dec. 14 last year. The mass shooting tragedy has renewed calls for gun control.
The White House task force is expected to make proposals for new laws and actions by the end of this month. The mix of broad proposals may include renewing an expired assault weapons ban, tightening limits on the magazine capacity for semi-automatic weapons and background checks.
On Wednesday, Biden also said the president was also prepared to take executive action in response to gun violence.
