President Obama and the National Rifle Association are gearing up for their version of pistols at dawn over White House proposals to re-instate an assault weapons ban.

Obama reaffirmed his position on Friday, after the NRA issued a statement implying he did not have the political will to move on a ban.

Vice President Joe Biden plans to present his gun safety recommendations to the President Tuesday.
