Mass Shootings Are Back in the Headlines!

VOA reports:

U.S. President Joe Biden on Tuesday called for a nationwide ban on assault weapons, in the wake of a shooting in Boulder, Colorado, that left 10 people dead, including a police officer. 

Speaking from the White House, Biden said, “I don’t need to wait a minute, let alone an hour, to take commonsense steps to save lives.”  

He urged members of the House and Senate to act. 

“We can ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines,” Biden said, noting that he worked on similar legislation when he was a senator and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. That law was passed in 1994 but was allowed to expire 10 years later.
