President Joe Biden ordered the flag to be lowered over the White House “again” to half the staff on Wednesday after a gunman killed at least eight people at a California light rail yard. He also issued a one-word appeal: “enough.” Biden said Congress should respond immediately “to the call of the American people, including the vast majority of gun owners, to help end the epidemic of gun violence in America.” “Every life is killed by a bullet that penetrates our soul.” Biden said in a statement. The President said he is fulfilling his earnest duty to lower the White House flag only weeks after he did so in the aftermath of the shooting in George, Colorado, South Carolina and Indiana, in addition to those on all properties. The other federation, will move with half the staff until sunset on Sunday. In April, Biden declared armed violence a “pandemic and international embarrassment.” He announced six enforcement measures aimed at curbing the spread of so-called stealth rifles, or untraceable weapons, that They can be constructed from parts purchased online, as well as tightening regulations regarding the type of mounting brackets for pistols used in Boulder, Colorado. Shooting that left 10 fatal. The orders, described as the administration’s first step in tackling armed violence, fell short of the Biden campaign’s pledge to reinstate Ban offensive weapons, create a voluntary weapons buy-back program and send a bill to Congress to remove liability.

Biden supports the House bills that would affect Reinforcing background checks for gun buyers and closing the so-called Charleston loophole, which allows gun sales to go ahead without a full background check if three business days have elapsed. The Senate is evenly divided, as Democrats will need to maintain their slim majority while also finding 10 Republican votes.
