Biden To Host Special Event At White House To Push Gun Control

( )- On Monday, Vice President Joe Biden will hold an event at the White House to promote the first significant federal gun safety policy in the past three decades, which was signed into law by President Obama in June.

Just a few short weeks after horrific shootings in Uvalde and Buffalo, which claimed the lives of more than 30 people, including 19 children at an elementary school, the bipartisan law was drafted and introduced.

The legislation includes measures that will assist states in preventing individuals judged to pose a threat to themselves or others from obtaining firearms. It also prohibits the sale of weapons to people convicted of assaulting intimate partners who are not married and places stricter regulations on those convicted of committing domestic violence.

The gun measure was introduced in the same week that the Supreme Court decided to increase the rights of gun owners.

The subject of gun control has been contentious in the United States for a very long time, yet, several attempts to implement additional restrictions on the sale of firearms have been unsuccessful time and time again.

Biden, who is trying to boost his flagging public popularity ratings in front of the midterm elections for control of Congress on November 8th, made obtaining victories on gun control a component of his campaign appeal to voters in the hopes of gaining their support.

According to a White House official who did not wish to be identified, Biden will be joined at the event by survivors and family members of victims of mass shootings from locations such as Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora, Tucson, Sandy Hook, Parkland, Santa Fe, Uvalde, Buffalo, and Highland Park, among other locations.

According to the findings of a recent survey conducted by NPR and Ipsos, the vast majority of gun owners support the implementation of universal background checks, the raising of the minimum age to purchase a firearm to 21, and so-called “red flag” laws that aim to remove guns from potentially dangerous people.

However, most of these gun owners oppose a ban on semiautomatic weapons like the AR-15. They also doubt that new gun-control measures would do anything to prevent mass shootings, and Republican gun owners, in particular, believe that passing new gun control laws is the first step on a slippery slope that leads to the removal of all firearms.

The left’s slop is always slippery.
