VP Biden Previews Gun Control Recommendations

Vice-president Joe Biden has previewed what he intends to present to President Obama as far as suggested gun control measures. Noticeably absent is a ban on assault rifles.

His seven recommendations are going to be:

1) Close the so-called gun show loophole,
2) Universal background checks for gun buyers,

3) improve background check database,
4) Limit high-capacity bullet magazines,
5) Allow federal research on gun violence,

6) remove gag orders on federal agencies that collect gun data,
7) Target purveyors of violence as a cultural norm.

That last one seems pretty ambiguous. It could cover everything from video games to movies to books and TV. I'm most eager to hear more about that one.
