The National Rifle Association says it has enough support in Congress to block any new laws that would ban assault weapons.

That comes as Vice President Joe Biden finalizes a package of recommendations to curb gun violence.

Biden is to meet today with House members to discuss ways to reduce gun violence. He is expected to give President Barack

Obama a comprehensive package of recommendations tomorrow.

Some lawmakers say the December massacre in Newtown, Conn., that killed 27 people has transformed the country and Americans are ready for stricter gun laws.

While NRA president David Keene told CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday that he can't be positive, he would say "that the likelihood is that they are not going to be able to get an assault weapons ban through this Congress."
