UNITED STATES PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN VOWS TO CRACK DOWN ON FIREARMS FOLLOWING TWO MASS SHOOTINGS IN LESS THAN A WEEK
Written by wave FM on March 24, 2021
United States President JOE BIDEN has vowed to take “common-sense steps” to crack down on firearms following two mass shootings in the country in less than a week.
He renewed his call to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines and urged Congress to pass bills that would end loopholes in background checks.
BIDEN was speaking a day after 10 people were shot dead in a Colorado grocery store and eight other people killed inside spas in Georgia last week.
The right to bear arms is protected by the Second Amendment to the US constitution and is staunchly defended by many conservatives, including ex-president DONALD TRUMP.
