Vice President Joe Biden gestures to members of Congress in the audience as he speaks about gun violence, Tuesday, June 18, 2013, in the South Court Auditorium of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on the White House complex in Washington. The White House is reporting progress on President Barack Obama's initiatives to reduce gun violence, but says the most important step would be getting a reluctant Congress to pass new firearms laws. Vice President Joe Biden was announcing Tuesday that the administration has completed or significantly advanced 21 of the 23 executive actions that Obama ordered in January in response to the Connecticut elementary school shooting that killed 20 first-graders and six staff members.
