After a brief jaunt overseas, Vice President Joseph R. Biden will head to Philadelphia, Pa., on Monday to hold a roundtable discussion on gun safety with law enforcement officials, according to the White House.
Federal agents armed with search warrants took documents Wednesday from the home of the son of Rep. Chaka Fattah and the law offices of one of the son's associates who owns a private school that does millions of dollars in business with the Philadelphia School District.

"It doesn't befit a great nation to hesitate or equivocate on the question of following our own laws," Mr. Fattah said.
