During a speech at the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Washington, D.C., Vice President Joe Biden called for extended background checks for private gun sales.

Biden suggested that he wouldn’t be opposed to the idea of getting a background check at a gun store if he was trying to sell someone his shotgun.

“If I want to sell you my 12 gauge shotgun, which hasn’t been used much lately, I want to sell you my shotgun, Mr. Mayor, in my home, it’s not a big deal to say, ‘Look we gotta take another 20 minutes to go down to Dick’s Sporting Goods here and they’ll run the check for us,” Biden insisted.
