After the tragic shooting in Maine, Joe Biden renewed his push for unlawful gun control measures to infringe upon the inalienable right of self-defense.
The 2nd Amendment shall not be infringed.
No amount of mass shootings will change that fact.
Guns are not the source of these tragedies.
Nevertheless, authoritative public servants will utilize horrific crimes to push their gun-grabbing agenda to ensure the people are defenseless.
According to the Daily Mail, Joe Biden called the Maine tragedy “another senseless and tragic mass shooting.”
“Today, in the wake of yet another tragedy, I urge Republican lawmakers in Congress to fulfill their duty to protect the American people. Work with us to pass a bill banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, to enact universal background checks, to require safe storage of guns, and end immunity from liability for gun manufacturers. This is the very least we owe every American who will now bear the scars — physical and mental — of this latest attack,” Biden said.
BREAKING: Biden condemns ‘tragic’ Maine shooting, urges assault weapons ban

Daily Mail reports:
At least 16 people were killed in Maine during Wednesday night’s mass shooting at Sparetime Recreation and Schemengees Bar and Grille in Lewiston. And 13 people were injured according to Maine Gov. Janet Mills.
Biden stepped out of Wednesday night’s state dinner for Australia to be briefed by his advisors on the latest mass shooting.
He also called Maine officials – Gov. Janet Mills, Senators Angus King and Susan Collins, and Representative Jared Golden – to offer federal support.
The president also left the state dinner early, shortly after 10 pm. Biden has been using his executive power to work to combat gun violence given that legislative efforts have gotten stuck on Capitol Hill.
In 2022, Congress passed major gun legislation although it did not contain all the items Biden had pushed for. It expanded background checks and provided millions of dollars for mental health services and school security initiatives.
Biden has advocated for re-instating the national assault weapons ban but with Republicans now in control of the House and Democrats running the Senate, passing legislation on Capitol Hill is a tough prospect.
Kamala Harris on Tuesday called for Congress to pass an assault weapons ban.
“Congress must have the courage to act and renew the assault weapons ban,” Harris said.
The Maine shooting occurred Wednesday night.
