Obama thinking

White House spokesman Jay Carney speaks about the elementary school shooting in Connecticut and gun control. Carney, speaking at a news conference in Washington, also discusses fiscal negotiations between lawmakers.

Obama, a day removed from an emotional speech in front of the families of the victims and first responders in Newtown, Connecticut, met today with Vice President Joe Biden, senior aides and Cabinet members including Attorney General Eric Holder to discuss ways to respond to the shooting, according to a White House official with knowledge of the meeting.

The president’s options to use executive power may be limited. At Holder’s direction, a team of senior Justice Department and law enforcement officials was brought together in 2011 to come up with ways to address gun violence. Their recommendations, some of which were implemented by the department, would give Obama few initiatives he could pursue on his own, according to two people briefed on the matter.
