Coastal Sunrise: Top 3 on 3

Posted: Updated:

     Here's a quick look at your Top 3 on 3 stories you'll need to know before heading out this morning.

     Vice President Joe Biden will try to restart the gun control push with a White House event to discuss the administration's progress in combating gun violence this afternoon. This will mark the first time Vice President Bide, or even President Obama, has held a public event on gun control since the Senate rejected expanded background checks for gun purchases on April 17th. President Obama will not be in attendance, he is attending the G8 Summit in Northern Ireland.

     Also, changes could be in store for women seeking jobs in combat. The Pentagon is expected to announce a new plan today; expanding women's options. Women could begin training for jobs in Army Ranger and Navy Seal units as soon as mid 2015. In January, then Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta ordered all jobs open to women unless a specific "exception" was requested by the military services. Since then the pentagon has been working on plans to implement those orders. In 2012 the Army opened over 14,000 positions to women.

     Plus, the FBI will resume searching today in a field in suburban Detroit for the remains of former teamsters leader Jimmy Hoffa. Hoffa disappeared in 1975. It is believed interviews with aging mobster, Tony Zerilli, led to the new search. Zerilli says he was not involved in Hoffa's disappearance but was told about it by a mafia enforcer.
