Biden Calls For Stricter Gun Laws After Texas Shooting

2004: The United States Army veteran Terry Nichols is found guilty of 161 state murder charges for helping carry out the Oklahoma City bombing.

President Joe Biden has called on Congress to “stand up to the gun lobby” and pass legislation to implement increased restrictions on firearms after a mass shooting at a Texas elementary school.

“As a nation, we have to ask, when in God’s name are we going to stand up to the gun lobby?” Biden said in remarks delivered from the White House. “I am sick and tired of it. We have to act. And don’t tell me we can’t have an impact on this carnage.” 

“It’s time to turn this pain into action,” Biden said. “We have to make it clear to every elected official in this country: It’s time to act.” 

Republican Rep. Randy Fine (FL) addressed the president’s calls for tighter gun laws in a tweet.

“I have news for the embarrassment that claims to be our President — try to take our guns and you’ll learn why the Second Amendment was written in the first place,” Fine wrote.

9 comments on Biden Calls For Stricter Gun Laws After Texas Shooting

  1. Dave says:

    The comments were increased gun restrictions, not taking guns away from anyone. Twenty Seven gun shootings this year.

    When do we do something to stop the carnage.

    1. G. Thompson says:

      The carnage is way deeper than acts by guns.

  2. rick says:

    That sounded like a threat on our president. Why isn’t this nut job in jail? And why do you keep saying we want to take your guns away? You are the reason we need gun laws to start with.

  3. Judy says:

    Thank you Dave for an intelligent repay. Its time we speak up whenever the response to proposal for responsible gun laws is “they are trying to take our guns away”. That is the typical response. President Biden’s request is for background checks at gun shows and I really don’t know why any responsible gun owner would object to that.

    1. Paul says:

      There are already background checks at gun shows watch something besides CNN

  4. Roger Michalski says:

    Fix the people. Enforce the many gun rules out there now. We have enough regulations now. FIX THE HATE IN OUR SOCIETY.

    1. G. Thompson says:

      Exactly. Does anyone really think new restrictions will decrease the attacks? This societal problem is far deeper than guns. Social media, in my opinion, is more of a threat because it isolates people and creates a fake reality where ideas fester and destabilize already borderline mental cases. Legalization of pot is also a problem. In Oregon since the legalization crime has increased majorly as well as in Denver, CO.

  5. A. Sanders says:

    There are already background checks. However if information is not entered in the database used then the application cannot be flagged. I’m sure the shooters medical records are sealed but wouldn’t it be nice to know if he was on mood altering medications? That alone should cause a flag to be raised but that would require someone else being responsible.
    Stop reporting on the shooters. Don’t give them the 15 minutes of fame they know they will get. Make them a non person not the center of the news cycle. Make it that know one will know their name and there will be a marked decrease of shootings made for a statement.

  6. James Green says:

    It’s time for the American public to realize that the guns are not the problem. It’s the people who buy them with underlying mental health issues. It seems to me as a responsible gun owner that there needs to be a mental health determination before one can obtain a weapon of any type not just the guns. I also believe it’s a gun shop should be held accountable if someone has been killed due to their sale of rapid fire weapons.
