Biden to Hold Gun Control Event

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House says Vice President Joe Biden is planning an event on gun control next Tuesday.

It's Biden's first event focusing specifically on gun control since a major Senate vote on expanding background checks failed in April, although the White House held a mental health conference earlier in June. Strengthening mental health care was among the executive actions President Barack Obama took to reduce gun violence after the Newtown shooting in December.

Biden and Obama have said they're not done pushing gun control even though momentum has stalled in Congress. Last week Biden sent an email to Democrats saying he has complete faith Congress will pass meaningful gun laws if everything possible is done to make it happen.

The White House wouldn't disclose details about Tuesday's event.
