The US Conference of Mayors began Thursday in Washington D.C. Among those attending was Des Moines Mayor Frank Cownie.

The group will discuss several topics during the three-day meeting.

Vice President Joe Biden met with the group Thursday. He brought up the President’s new proposals to curb gun violence.

“As part of our recommendations to the President, I suggested that the President direct the Attorney General to study that question, should any other people be added to the prohibitive category? Should we look at a variety of categories?” Biden said. “For example right now, certain convicted stalkers can still purchase guns.”

The meeting will run through Saturday, Jan. 19.
