washington — On Wednesday, President Biden renewed his call on Congress to ban “AR-15 guns,” assault weapons and high-capacity magazines as he celebrated Shooting at Rupp Elementary School in Uvalde, TexasAs a result, 19 children and teachers were killed and 17 others were injured.

“Remembrance is important, but it also hurts,” Biden said against the backdrop of candles representing each shooting victim. “One year ago today, Rob Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, became another killing field in America.”

The president summoned first lady Jill Biden visit uvaldi Meeting with the families of the victims and visiting the school’s memorial shortly after the tragedy.

“Standing in Uvalde, I can’t help but think of so many schools, so many everyday places, that have become killing fields in communities across America,” the president said Wednesday. Everywhere we hear the same message: ‘Do something. For God’s sake, please do something about it. “After that we did some things, but not enough.

Congress legislation passed Last June, the government tightened some restrictions on the use of weapons after a mass shooting in Uvalde. But the president urged Congress to do more.

“It’s time for action. It’s time for action. It’s time for our voices,” he said.

After the Uvalde shooting last year, the president asked, “When will we stand up against the gun lobby in the name of God?”

“As a country, we have to ask, when are we going to stand up to the United States in the name of God?” Mr. Biden said at the time. “When will we do in God’s name what we all know must be done in our guts?”
