Voters already believe that the gun restrictions the White House is pushing are in place, Vice President Biden said Thursday.
Biden was speaking at an event in New York’s City Hall alongside New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I). Biden praised Bloomberg for his advocacy of stricter gun laws.
In introducing Biden, Bloomberg noted that the vice president has pushed for a number of proposals to reduce gun violence, including reinstating a federal assault weapons ban, a limit on how many bullets can go in a magazine clips and universal background checks for gun sales.
Biden said recent polling data he’s seen has shown Americans already think the new restrictions are in place.
