News PhotoHorizontal,Manassas,National Rifle Association,Organized Group,Politics,USA,VirginiaPhotographer Collection: AFP 2013 AFPA membership card for the National Rifle Association (NRA) is seen on January 10, 2013 in Manassas, Virginia. Though the NRA unsurprisingly objected to the gun control measures being considered by US Vice President Joe Biden’s gun violence task force, Biden is pressing on with his plan to send the president gun control proposals by January 15. Biden met with the NRA and other gun control opponents January 10 for about an hour and a half. The NRA in a statement following the meeting said, “We were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the Second Amendment.” “It is unfortunate that this administration continues to insist on pushing failed solutions to our nation’s most pressing problems.” AFP PHOTO/Karen Bleier (Photo credit should read KAREN BLEIER/AFP/Getty Images)
