(Fox News) The National Rifle Association emerged from a meeting Thursday with Vice President Biden and accused his gun violence task force of leading an “attack” on the Second Amendment — just hours after Biden gave a glimpse into the gun-control recommendations expected to hit the president’s desk in a matter of days.

The vice president said earlier that “an emerging set of recommendations” focuses on launching “universal” background checks, restricting high-capacity magazines and allowing federal agencies to do more research on gun violence.

He revealed where the task force was headed a day after drawing outrage from Republican lawmakers by saying the administration might use “executive orders” to implement some policies. He said he plans to have the recommendations, which are not yet final, to President Obama by Tuesday.
