U.S. President Barack Obama (R) and Vice President Joe Biden speak to members of the media in the White House Briefing Room in Washington December 19, 2012. Obama said on Wednesday he is seeking concrete policy recommendations no later than January aimed at curbing U.S. gun violence. The effort will be led by Biden and is part of Obama's call for action after the December 14 massacre of 26 people, including 20 children, at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
