WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden is taking the White House’s campaign for gun control on the road to Virginia.

Biden plans a roundtable discussion today in Richmond with experts who worked on gun safety following the 2007 shooting at Virginia Tech.

President Barack Obama wants Congress to require background checks for all gun sales and ban both military style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines. The president concedes passage will be difficult, but he also will travel to push the plan. His destinations have yet to be announced.
