Attorney General Eric Holder will be the nation’s top law enforcement official as the administration tackles new restrictions on guns in a major initiative of President Obama’s second term.

The administration announced Wednesday that Holder, a longtime foe of the National Rifle Association (NRA), would remain with Obama for a second term.

The announcement came the same day Holder sat shoulder to shoulder with Vice President Biden and gun-control advocates in a meeting at the White House.

Holder’s attendance at the talks suggests he will have a major role in the gun violence task force established by Obama in the wake of the killing of 26 people — including 20 6- and 7-year-olds — at an elementary school in Connecticut last month.
