Biden talks about the Uvalde massacre

US president calls for gun control in wake of 19 deaths in Texas elementary school shooting

US President Joe Biden called for more gun control in his opening comments on the elementary school massacre in Uvalde, Texas on Tuesday. Although little is known about the attacker or his motives, local authorities have confirmed the deaths of 18 children aged 7 to 9 and a teacher.

“Losing a child is like having a piece of your soul ripped out” Biden said, implicitly referring to the death of his own son Beau in 2015, and asking America to pray for all relatives of the dead.
