WASHINGTON - The Obama administration is meeting with the National Rifle Association and other gun-rights groups as officials look for ways to curb violence linked to guns.

Vice President Joe Biden is leading an administration-wide review of gun safety laws, vowing urgent action in the wake of last month's massacre at a Connecticut elementary school.

The meeting with the NRA is one of three Biden has scheduled for Thursday, as he prepares to make recommendations on gun policy by the end of the month. Besides the session with the NRA, Biden and other officials also are sitting down with sportsmen and wildlife interest groups, as well as people from the entertainment industry.

Biden met Wednesday with gun-control advocates and crime victims.
