President Joe Biden made a brief statement, Tuesday morning, addressing the mass shooting in Boulder, Colorado, and pledging to press forward with gun “reform” measures, including a ban on so-called “assault weapons,” and a ban on “high capacity magazines.”
Speaking in the White House State Dining Room, Biden pledged to honor the ten people who died when a shooter opened fire at a King Soopers grocery store late Monday. Authorities released information on the shooter’s identity Tuesday morning but have yet to release information about a possible motive. Members of the shooter’s family told the media that the shooter suffered from a range of serious mental illnesses.
Biden and Democrats, however, have wasted little time in calling for gun reforms, pointing to what they call “common sense” gun control measures they believe will end or limit further mass shootings.
“After acknowledging there were still outstanding details to be learned about Monday’s massacre, including the shooter’s motive and weapons, Biden insisted enough was known to make an ardent call for new gun control,” CNN reported on the president’s short speech.
