“It’s a National Embarrassment,’ Biden Says on Gun Violence
President Biden said on Friday that he was committed to passing gun control legislation and called on Senate Republicans to support a bill already passed by the House.
I strongly support — I strongly support — the universal background checks, which I continue to push. The Congress has to step up and act. The Senate has to act. And I strongly support — and continue, and never stopped supporting — the ban on assault weapons and magazines that hold more than 10 — 10 bullets. And I strongly, strongly urge my Republican friends in the Congress who even refuse to bring up the House-passed bill to bring it up now. This has to end. It’s a national embarrassment. It is a national embarrassment. What’s going on? And it’s not only these mass shootings that are occurring every single day. Every single day, there’s a mass shooting this — in the United States, if you count all those who were killed out on the streets of our cities and our rural areas. It’s a national embarrassment and must come to an end. And one last thing: The folks who own weapons — the folks who own guns — they support universal background checks. A majority of them think we should not be selling assault weapons. Who in God’s name needs a weapon that can hold 100 rounds or 40 rounds or 20 rounds? It’s just wrong. And I’m not going to give up till it’s done.
