The White Home introduced Thursday that President Joe Biden and first woman Jill Biden will go to Uvalde, Texas, on Could 29 within the aftermath of the Robb Elementary College taking pictures bloodbath.
It marked the twenty seventh college taking pictures within the U.S. this yr, in keeping with records kept by Education Week and it’s the second deadliest college taking pictures in U.S. historical past.
Hours after the taking pictures happened, Biden gave an empathetic speech from the White Home in regards to the want for Congress to take motion on gun management.
“As a nation we should ask: When in God’s identify will we stand as much as the gun foyer?” Biden requested. “When in God’s identify will we do what must be performed? I’m sick and bored with it. We’ve got to behave.”
“The concept an 18-year-old child can stroll right into a gun retailer and purchase two assault weapons is simply incorrect,” Biden mentioned in his speech. “For God’s sake, we’ve got to have the braveness to face as much as the business.”
