Today, the NRA and Vice President Joe Biden met to discuss the way forward on reasonable gun control measures in the wake of the school shooting at Sandy Hook. In the middle of a CNN broadcast reporting on the subject, they had to cut away from the vice president's press conference to report on an actual school shooting in Taft, Calif.
