Children are the biggest victims of American gun violence



During a speech in Pennsylvania, President Joe Biden addressed rising gun violence across America

President Biden addressed gun policy in a passionate speech at the “Safer America” rally, in Wilkes-Barre.

The President says he is “determined to ban assault weapons” in the United States, in a bid to curb violence and senseless shootings.

“It’s time to ban these weapons. We did it before. We can do it again.”


He used the platform to call out Republicans for failing to support a ban on assault-style weapons, urging voters to “vote against” politicians that stand in the way of reform.

He accused Republicans of withholding their support for change because they’re “afraid of the NRA.”

“It’s time to hold every elected official’s feet to the fire and ask them: Are you for banning assault weapons, yes or no? Ask them… If the answer’s no, vote against them.”

As a gun owner himself, Biden assured American’s he’s not “taking away anybody’s guns” or rights.

“I want to be clear: It’s not about taking away anybody’s guns. In fact, we should be treating responsible gun owners as examples how every gun owner should behave.”


However, Biden says there must be a bill in place to prevent dangerous people from accessing firearms.

The President referenced a grim statistic saying the biggest victims of gun violence are America’s children.

“More children die from gun violence in America than active police and active military combined”
