(Washington) -- The White House says Vice President Joe Biden will travel to Philadelphia next week to host a roundtable discussion on gun control.

Scheduled to join him on Monday are law enforcement officials, Deputy Attorney General James Cole and Democratic members of Pennsylvania's congressional delegation.

The Obama administration is pushing for new gun-control measures in the wake of the Newtown school shooting.

Poposals include a new ban on military-style semi-automatic rifles, a ban on high-capacity magazines carrying more than 10 rounds of ammunition, and background checks for all gun sales.

    No way! We want guns. We need to protect ourselves from bad people. Who are you to say no to guns? If you do not want guns then don't use it. It is simple as that. I know there are some very bad things happened in our country recently. But this is not the way to alter it.
