US Gun Violence ‘An International Embarrassment,’ Says Biden

President Biden on Thursday decried the epidemic of gun violence in America as an “international embarrassment” as he rolled out a series of executive actions intended to address the issue.

“Nothing I’m about to recommend in any way impinges on the Second Amendment,” Biden said in the Rose Garden. “They’re phony arguments suggesting these are Second Amendment rights at stake with what we’re talking about. But no amendment, no amendment to the Constitution is absolute.”

“So the idea is just bizarre to suggest that some of the things we’re recommending are contrary to the Constitution,” he added. “Gun violence in this country is an epidemic. And it’s an international embarrassment.”

  1. I used to be very pro gun control.

    Now not so much anymore.

    NYC/NYS and most other liberal areas have very strict gun laws. Yet gun violence went on a MAJOR increase after all the liberal pro criminals laws went into effect.

    Clearly being tough on crime does a lot more to stop gun violence than gun control laws

    • “Clearly being tough on crime does a lot more to stop gun violence than gun control laws”
      Without debating which is more effective, they are not exclusive and can both help.

      FWIW, my political perspective, while still right-of-center, has moved in the opposite direction of yours.

  2. Fool! People kill people. Guns have a very legitimate use. I am all in favor of gun laws that require background checks. Affiliation with hate groups of any kind, including many pro-Islam groups should be a disqualifier. There should be licenses for all forms of guns, and no sales allowed that evade the background checks. Barring the need for care and safety, the government should butt out.

    The epidemic is the freedom of gangs, murderers, and domestic/foreign terrorists. The defund the police movement which the current administration supports is one of the curses of this generation. Try keeping these animals locked up, and re-instate the death penalty for such heinous crimes immediately.
