Obama says after he receives recommendations from Biden's group, he will push legislation without delay. The president is urging Congress to hold votes on the bill.
Obama says the issue is complex but quote, we have a deep obligation â?? all of us â?? to try.
Biden, a longtime gun control advocate, will lead a team that will include members of Obama's administration and outside groups.
The move comes after Friday's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn. Twenty children and six adults were killed at the school by a gunman wielding a semi-automatic rifle.
