The National Rifle Association has accepted an invitation from the White House to engage in a discussion as part of Vice President Joe Biden's gun task force. More from The Hill:
Biden will meet Wednesday with gun-safety organizations and shooting victims groups and on Thursday will meet with gun ownership organizations and sportsmen who use guns recreationally, according to the White House.
NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam said the organization accepted an invitation received from the White House late Friday.
"We are sending a rep to hear what they have to say," Arulanandam said.
The acceptance of the invitation by the NRA is notable considering just a year ago Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre said he would not meet with Obama to discuss the issue of gun control.
“Why should I or the N.R.A. go sit down with a group of people that have spent a lifetime trying to destroy the Second Amendment in the United States?”
