US: Joe Biden calls for action against guns after Texas shooting

-

Published on: 25/05/2022 – 19:18 In the aftermath of the shooting that killed 19 children, the American president, determined to oppose the firearms lobby, called on Wednesday to take action to prevent new attacks. Joe Biden has urged Americans to stand up to the gun lobby and pressure Congress to toughen gun laws, after 19 children and two teachers were murdered at a Texas school, the toll the deadliest in a decade for this type of crime. Authorities say Salvador Ramos, 18, shot his grandmother, who survived, on Tuesday before fleeing and crashing into a car near Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, and gun down at least 21 people before being killed, apparently by police.Authorities said all of the shooting victims were killed in the same class of CM1. Investigators are still trying to determine the shooter’s motives, Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Chris Olivarez told MSNBC. In God’s name, we’re going to stand against the gun lobby, when in God’s name, we do what we all know, in our guts, needs to be done!” Joe Biden said in televised address Among the reactions Wednesday, during his weekly audience to the crowds assembled in St. Peter’s Square, Pope Francis said he was “heartbroken”. “I pray for the children and adults who have been killed and for their families,” he added, before calling for “enough” to be said about the indiscriminate sale of arms and “(take) a commitment so that tragedies like this cannot happen again.” Earlier in the day, Ukrainian President Volodimir Zelensky also offered his condolences to the families of the victims, speaking via video link in an event on the sidelines of the Forum Davos World Economy. “It’s terrible to have sniper casualties in peacetime,” he added.
