Biden announces surprise new approach to combating school violence

Vice President Joe Biden traveled to Cincinnati Thursday to outline a new approach to combating school violence, but the administration will not include limits on access to guns as part of its policies.

Biden's announcement, which came one day before a vigil in Cincinnati for the victims of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, largely omitted other initiatives proposed by the president in the wake of last month's shooting at an elementary school in Colorado.

Biden held a news conference to announce the establishment of the President's Commission on the Prevention of Violence Against Women and the Combating of Violence Against Women Act, which will increase federal resources for law enforcement, provide mental health services and pay for training for law enforcement.
