WASHINGTON (AP) - 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.

Freshman Oklahoma Congressman Markwayne Mullin commented on the actions of the administration about gun control.

"What the President and the Executive branch are trying to do on gun control is absurd. The President's use of executive orders to limit Second Amendment rights is only a tactic to bypass Congress and force untested laws onto the American people. Under the U.S. Constitution, Congress is required to be the primary source of federal legislation, and I will fight to ensure that Congress does not abandon our responsibility to the American people by delegating our role in government to the executive branch, particularly regarding such an important issue as the Second Amendment. I will continue to fight against the President's agenda on gun control. As American citizens we have the Constitutional right to bear arms."
