President Obama and Vice President Biden / Gerald Herbert, AP

President Obama has no public schedule Thursday -- at least not yet -- but Vice President Biden will be out promoting the administration's gun control plan.

Biden will appear on the website Google+ for a "Fireside Hangout" on the plan that includes proposals for an assault weapons ban, expanded background checks, and restrictions on the size of ammunition magazines, as well as school safety and mental health programs.

The "Fireside Hangout" --described by the White House as a "21st Century take" on Franklin D. Roosevelt's famed radio addresses -- starts at 1:45 p.m. EST.

On Friday, Biden will make a public appearance on behalf of the anti-gun violence plan in a state with a number of gun owners: Virginia.

The event in Richmond will also feature a key senator in the event, Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va.

Biden developed the administration's plan after a series of meetings with stakeholders in the gun issue; the meetings followed the Dec. 14 mass shooting that killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.
