Thursday is the much-anticipated event where President Obama will lay out "concrete" proposals on how to curb gun violence and protect children from future attacks such as what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School just a month ago. Vice President Biden has been focused on the issue with his working group for the last few weeks and presented his recommendations to the president earlier this week. President Obama and Vice President Biden will be joined at the events with children who wrote letters to the president following the Newtown massacre.
