The meeting comes one day before Biden, who is spearheading the White House gun violence task force, is set to present President Obama his recommendations for addressing the nation’s epidemic of firearm violence.

Last week, Biden held a number of meeting with groups representing gun owners, retailers, sportsmen and the entertainment and video game industries. 

Biden on Thursday said that his legislative proposals to Obama would “relate primarily to gun ownership and the type of weapons we own.” He pledged to deliver the task force recommendations by Tuesday, but also cautioned that Obama would consider executive action, if needed, to implement some gun measures.

Any measures calling for additional restrictions on gun ownership are likely to face sharp opposition from gun-rights groups and Republican lawmakers.

The nation’s largest gun lobby, the National Rifle Association (NRA) accused the White House of having an “agenda to attack the Second Amendment,” after their meeting with Biden last Thursday.

The NRA is opposing many of the gun-control measures the White House has already publicly backed, including bans on assault weapons and restrictions on the sale of high-capacity ammunition. 

On Sunday, NRA President David Keene said that he did not believe supporters of those measures had enough support on Capitol Hill to enact them. 

The White House set up Biden’s working group in response to the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. , which left 27 dead, including 20 children.
