Joe Biden demands that assault rifles be banned from sale to anyone under 21

Joe Biden called the US Congress on Thursday (June 2) to limit the sale assault rifles, and lambasted. This was almost ten days after the massacre at Texas school of 19 children, two teachers, and their parents.

"How much more carnage will we accept?" "," he asked the American president to repeat during his address to the nation at the White House. He wanted to end the "enough" repetitions of shootings that mourn America. Behind his desk, 56 candles represented the victims of the massacres in all American territories and states.

He claimed that too many places in everyday life had become battlefields, killing grounds after the shootings at Uvalde Elementary school, a Buffalo supermarket, and at Uvalde Hospital in Tulsa on Wednesday.

Joe Biden demanded a ban on semi-automatic assault rifles being sold in the United States. This was as a result of 1994 to 2004. He was aware of the difficulties of passing such legislation in Congress, where his party has a very small majority. However, he said that he would not be able to say "We must at most raise the minimum" legal age for such weapons to 18-21 years.

He called for the banning of high-capacity magazines and the strengthening criminal or psychological background checks on potential buyers. The vote was also on a text that requires individuals to keep their guns locked up.

He stated that in the last 20 years, "more schoolchildren have been killed by gunfire than all the police and soldiers who died in service" Think about it.

The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right to own a firearm, but it is not absolute, the Democratic president stated.

During his 17-minute speech, he said that "We cannot betray again the American people." "It's time for the Senate do something.

Senator Chris Murphy tweeted, "Thanks, Mr. President." We must do something. We can do it, said this Connecticut elected official, who was forever impacted by Sandy Hook's shooting, which left 26 people dead, including 20 children, in 2012. He now leads the discussion between Republicans and Democrats. This group faces the challenge of finding measures that can be supported by ten Republican senators. This is essential due to the Senate's qualified majority.

Conservatives strongly object to any measure that could violate the rights "law-abiding citizens" in a country where over 30% of adults own at minimum one firearm.

The Senate is currently focusing on a few proposals, such background checks for arms buyers. This has been a demand of associations for many years. The Senate's ongoing negotiations could however succeed where none of the others, even those that were initiated under Barack Obama following the Sandy Hook massacre, have failed.

Sen. Chris Murphy earlier tweeted, "There's growing momentum for us get something done." Republican Senator Pat Toomey expressed his "optimism" as well.

During the same time, House of Representatives elected officials debated Thursday a major bill that would prohibit the sale of semiautomatic rifles to anyone under 21 years old and high-capacity magazines. This was as Joe Biden requested. A group of Republicans already called these measures "ineffective", unthoughtful, and "un-American" before they are put up for a vote in Congress next week. They cannot be adopted in their current form in the Senate, so it seems unlikely that they will be.
