    America has seen mass shootings - the frantic and often hopeless response, the makeshift memorials and the politicians promising change. That never happened, but as Vice President Joe Biden begins meetings on the issue of gun violence he says this time its different.

Al Jazeera's Patty Culhane reports from Washington, DC.
