During an interview with CNN yesterday, Vice President Joe Biden reacted to the recent ad campaigns launched by the National Rifle Association in response to President Obama’s call for more gun control.

“Look, I think the NRA’s reaction — overreaction — is a reflection of the vulnerability of their position,” Biden said shortly.

Biden added that there was a “growing consensus among even sportsmen” about gun control and added that in the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting, the administration’s proposals would be easier to pass.
