Biden’s meeting Wednesday is part of a series he’s holding this week to build consensus around proposals to curb gun violence after the Dec. 14 shooting in Newtown, Conn., in which 20 school children were killed.

He told participants that he and President Barack Obama are determined to act.

Participants included the Brady Campaign to End Gun Violence and groups from Arizona, Illinois and Wisconsin. Also present were two survivors of the Virginia Tech shooting.

Obama has asked Biden to deliver policy proposal by the end of the month.

Wal-Mart to join Biden gun control meeting

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. will join talks at the White House on Thursday about gun control and safety.

Wal-Mart said it previously had not planned to attend the meeting because of its senior leaders’ schedule and had spoken in advance with the Vice President’s office to share its perspective.
