"We try not to identify ourselves or align ourselves with a truly political point of view, we try to make it as ambiguous as possible" Louis-Dreyfus said when asked by reporters what her character would do in light of recent filibuster threats on gun control legislation. 

In the first season of "Veep," Louis-Dreyfus's character, Vice President Selina Meyer, made filibuster reform one of her legislative priorities.   

"This is about political behavior" Louis-Dreyfus added, "we're not on a soapbox, we don't have a" political position as a show.

Season two of "Veep" premiers Sunday, April 14 on HBO.
