Gun control

In a passionate address to the nation yesterday, President Joe Biden called for stricter gun laws — including a ban on assault weapons, tougher background check laws and a higher minimum age of purchase if lawmakers cannot agree on an outright ban.

His plea to lawmakers comes as many Americans remain rattled by the recent deadly mass shootings in Oklahoma, Texas and New York. “How much more carnage are we willing to accept?” Biden asked during his speech, demanding Republicans end their blockade of gun control votes. Both Biden and his advisers have suggested they have exhausted their options on executive action to address guns.

In Congress, the House Judiciary Committee approved a wide-ranging bill that would likely pass the Democratic-controlled House but wouldn’t overcome a Republican-led filibuster in the Senate.
