US Gun Control- Biden calls for ban on assault weapons

Recently, President Joe Biden pledged to take sensible steps to crack down the reasons and stop the firearms following two mass shootings in the US in less than a week. 

On Tuesday he called for a nationwide ban on assault weapons, in the furrow of a shooting in Boulder, Colorado, at a grocery store, that left 10 people dead, inclusive of one police officer. 

While announcing from White House he said- “I don’t need to wait a minute, let alone an hour, to take common-sense steps to save lives ‘. 

As the right to bear an arm is protected by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution. On the other hand, Democrats have requested stricter gun control measures in the aftermath of mass shootings recently. 

Meanwhile, Joe urged the members of the House and Senate to act asap. 

He added- “We can ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines”, also nothing that he managed on similar legislation during his time as a senator and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. The law was passed back in 1994 but now it is allowed to expire after 10 years. 

Later, he also commands the Senate to pass proper measures that are already passed by the House that would permanently close the loopholes in-laws, needing background checks on the sale and purchase of guns. 

Needed meetings and discussions were held by the Senate, to discuss the ways of reducing and preventing any sort of gun violence. 

While offering condolences, Biden said his heart goes out to the survivors and the families of the victims of the boulder Shooting.
