Biden Takes Gun Control Message to Virginia

Joe Raedle/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- As Congressional Democrats push new laws prohibiting sales of military-style rifles and high-capacity magazines, Vice President Joe Biden takes his campaign on the road.

On Friday, Biden will take his case to Virginia Commonwealth University, where he'll hold a roundtable with cabinet officials and experts on gun violence.  

In an online chat Thursday, Biden argued the administration's proposals aren't meant to take guns away from law-abiding citizens.

"I don't view it as gun control.  I view it as gun safety," he said during his first ever Google+ “Fireside Hangout.”

An ABC News/Washington Post poll this week shows a slight majority of Americans are in favor of the proposals.  But the National Rifle Association says Americans know "gun bans do not work."
