President Barack Obama is "determined" to curb gun violence, US Vice-President Joe Biden has said, opening high-profile talks on the issue.
Mr Biden said the president was "determined to take action" to reduce gun violence.
'President will act'
"We are not going to get caught up in the notion that unless we do everything we're going to do nothing," Mr Biden told reporters before the meetings with gun-safety and victims' groups began.
We're reaching out to all parties on whatever side of this debate you fall," Mr Biden said. "But the president is going to act. There are executive orders, executive action that can be taken."
The White House has pledged to send its proposals to Congress at the end of January, shortly after Mr Obama is sworn into office on 21 January for his second term.
But an assortment of gun-rights groups are planning a Gun Appreciation Day over the inauguration weekend.
