Vice President Joe Biden has been pushing for more gun control since the horrible tragedy occurred at a Newtown, Connecticut elementary school. This week Biden Stopped In Philadelphia to do his fair share of rallying in favor of more gun control and gun regulations.

PHILADELPHIA -- As Vice President Joe Biden discusses gun safety with law enforcement and Democratic officials here, a new poll says majorities of Pennsylvania voters think gun-control measures backed by the administration would help prevent mass shootings.

The Mercyhurst University survey released this morning found majorities of registered voters support banning military-style assault rifles and requiring background checks for all gun sales, both proposals Mr. Obama is asking Congress to pass in the aftermath of the school shooting in Newtown, Conn.
