(FixThisNation.com) – On Monday President Joe Biden once again renewed his call for more gun control measures following the mass shooting in Louisville, Ky. Earlier that day. He further pushed for Republicans in Congress to take action stating that more gun control was “long overdue.”
The shooting at Old National Bank on Louisville’s Main Street earlier on Monday resulted in at least four people dying while eight others were hospitalized. Police arrived at the scene during the downtown shooting and exchanged shots with the suspected shooter, who died on the scene.
In his statement, Biden asked how many more Americans would need to die because of gun violence before Republicans in Congress chose to take action to protect American communities. He added that it is time for the “safe storage of firearms” requirement to pass, as well as “require background checks for all gun sales. Eliminate gun manufacturers’ immunity from liability.” He added that it is necessary for all these things to occur now.
In his statement, the President also pointed out that the recent bills passed in both Florida and North Carolina were making “our schools, places of worship, and communities less safe.” Last week the White House condemned Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) for signing into law a bill that would allow concealed guns to be carried without a permit. Biden added that this is “unconscionable, it’s reckless” especially because of how many Americans are losing their lives because of it.
