The president also lashed out at a purported lack of action to take guns away from law-abiding citizens, while continuing to blast lobbyists for the problem.
“But these mass shootings never happened with the kind of frequency that happened in America?” he also said. “Why? Why are we willing to live with this carnage? Why do we keep letting this happen?”
“Where in God’s name is our backbone?” he went on. “To have the courage to deal with it and stand up to the lobbyists?”
“It’s time to take this pain and turn it into action,” he said.

Biden wasn’t alone in exhorting Americans to issue more laws to purportedly address the mass shooting problem.
There is no such thing as being “pro-life” while supporting laws that let children be shot in their schools, elders in grocery stores, worshippers in their houses of faith, survivors by abusers, or anyone in a crowded place.
It is an idolatry of violence. And it must end.

“14 kids dead in an elementary school in Texas right now. What are we doing? What are we doing? … We have another Sandy Hook on our hands. What are we doing? … What are we doing? … What are we doing?”

Rasmussen recently conducted a survey that found that 40% of Likely U.S. voters believed stricter gun control laws ‘would help prevent shootings like the recent one in Buffalo.’ Fifty percent (50%) don’t think stricter gun control would help, while another 10% were not sure.
According to Statista, of the mass shooters who have been categorized by mental health status, the overwhelming majority had “prior signs of mental health problems.”
