US Gun Control Plans Coming 'By Tuesday'

US Vice President Joe Biden has said he will provide the president with recommendations to curb gun violence within the next five days.

Mr Biden said he would send the results of his probe into the hot-button issue to President Barack Obama soon, as the response to the Newtown school massacre gathers momentum.

"I have committed to him I will have his recommendations to him by Tuesday," Biden said on Thursday, ahead of a meeting with sportsman and hunting organisations as part of his wide-ranging investigation into the causes and impact of firearms abuse.
