I once again call on Congress to pass legislation banning assault rifles and high-capacity magazines. Conducting forensic and psychological examinations. Safe storage requirement (for weapons). “End immunity for arms manufacturers,” he said in a statement.

He said, “I’ll sign it right away.”

“We need more, and faster, action to save lives,” he said.

Many families have empty chairs around their table. Republican members of Congress cannot continue to respond lightly to this pandemic. Thoughts and prayers sent via tweets are not enough.”

On Saturday afternoon, a gunman opened fire in a Dallas, Texas, area shopping mall, killing eight people and wounding several others before he was shot dead.

The president said children were among the victims.

The United States, where killings are regular, has more individual weapons than its population.

Joe Biden’s call is unlikely to lead to a congressional ban on such weapons. The Republicans, who control the House of Representatives, are staunchly opposed.
