During a gun violence news conference in New York City today with Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Vice President Joe Biden hammered home the point that none of the Obama administration’s gun control proposals infringe on the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

“There is not one single thing— not one, not one single thing— being proposed that infringes on anyone’s Second Amendment rights,” Biden said.

The majority of Americans favor the administration’s proposals, which include universal background checks and a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, Biden said. Both he and Bloomberg cited polls showing approval for background checks, but did not refernce opinion for the other proposals.
