Joseph Biden

The President of the United States of America, Joe Biden, has again called for a ban on assault rifles and tightening of laws on the possession of weapons in the country, responding to a shooting this Monday that left six dead, three of them. children, in a Nashville school: “As a nation, and this is not hyperbole, we owe these families more than our prayers, we owe them action.”

During the event in North Carolina, both receiving and his policy being questioned by the press, the US President insisted on the need to exclude “weapons of war”, which he claims has no purpose in the country.

“People are starting to see, there are helpful doctors on television who teach what happens when a bullet enters the body of a revolver or any other type of pistol, it goes straight out and it goes out. But what happens with assault rifles, with an AR-15, is that it enters the body and it explodes inside, and it goes much faster,” he promises.

He also reaffirmed his support for the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution, which protects gun ownership in certain circumstances, but stated that these weapons are extremely dangerous and should not be owned under any circumstances.

“I’m second amendment, I own two guns myself. My kids have shotguns, but everybody thinks the second amendment is absolute. You can’t go and buy automatic weapons, you can’t have a machine gun, you can’t have a flamenco. Why on our streets and in our schools do we allow these weapons of war??

In fact, the president “must be believed” and “badly” the death of guns is the number one cause of the death of children in the United States, and he affirmed the situation, which is repeated and even in. triam is “ridiculous”.

He said he had spoken with the mayor of the county where the shooting happened early Monday morning at Union Presbyterian College, a private center in Nashville, Tennessee, and confirmed that he owns the attacker. from these two guns are attacked. He also proposed in his mind to speak with the families of the deceased, as well as to visit the city.

The president is trying to make the laws last

Biden urged stricter gun laws: “We must stop gun violence, which destroys communities and destroys the soul of this nation, and protect our children so they can learn to read and write. about leading and hiding in the classroom. we must act. These are weapons of war.

“Last year we met to create the most significant gun laws in 30 years. it was bipartisan. We did that. And don’t say we can’t do more together,” he said.

So again, I’m calling on Congress to pass a rule banning guns. Let it be proved. It shouldn’t be about parties, it’s about common sense. We must act now. And people ask, why am I still talking about this if we haven’t tried it? Because I want you to know who doesn’t do it, who doesn’t help, to press their opinion.

Until now, through the executive orders, Biden has decided to provide the police with greater resources, to intervene in the program, to strengthen the firearms and against the weapons, so-called, guns without registration that can be placed in the middle. an hour

On the one hand, the main Democratic leaders of the House of Representatives have criticized their Republican colleagues for the obstacles that have prevented individual legislative proposals that are intended to address the already endemic problem of gun violence in the United States.

Meanwhile, Republicans insist that by banning guns, the weapons that are used in most of these attacks are not an option, as congressman Andy Ogles – who on Christmas Day 2021 with this type of weapons placed together with his family; who proposed to raise “mental health issues” about Americans.
