medium_3213900514FDR had his fireside chats. Now Google+ is bringing us Vice President Biden in a “Fireside Hangout” focused on reducing gun violence.

The discussion, which will use Google+’s Hangouts on-air feature, which broadcasts video chats to the world on Google+ and YouTube, will focus on Biden’s policy recommendations on reducing gun violence. PBS correspondent Hari Sreenivasan, entrepreneur and author Guy Kawasaki, and YouTube sensation Phil DeFranco will join Biden in the chat. It’s happening tomorrow, January 24, at 1:45 EST.

fb_share_vp.jpgTo watch, simply tune in to the White House’s Google+ page or YouTube page.

But if you want to participate and submit your own questions, follow the participants on Google+ and, when they post a note about the Hangout, suggest your question in comments. (Here are Guy Kawasaki, Phil DeFranco, and Hari Sreenivasa on Google+.)

This is part of a series of Hangouts that White House officials have participated in over the past four years and plan to continue in President Obama’s new term.

My only question: Will Alex Jones (yes, the gun enthusiast who tried to get Piers Morgan deported and got a little animated on the Piers Morgan show) turn up to get his questions answered?
