“It’s time to turn pain into action”: after a new massacre in a school in the United States, Joe Biden calls to face the arms lobby

Joe Biden spoke hours after the horror of an elementary school massacre in Texas on Tuesday, May 24, which left at least 20 people dead, including 19 schoolchildren and a teacher. Visibly marked, the American president called for “confront the gun lobby” to take regulatory action, when America has just plunged back into the recurring nightmare of school shootings.

“I was hoping by becoming president not to have to do this”blew the 79-year-old Democrat as he arrived in front of the cameras at the White House. “When, for God’s sake, are we going to face the gun lobby?”said the president, informed of the tragedy on the plane which brought him back from a diplomatic tour in Asia.

‘Don’t tell me we can’t have an impact on this carnage’launched Joe Biden again, about the scourge of deaths by firearms in the United States.

“Arms manufacturers have spent two decades aggressively promoting the assault weapons that bring them the biggest profits”he denounced.

He also attacked the Republican opposition, which is blocking all his attempts to pass measures in Congress such as mandatory checks on the criminal records and psychiatric histories of people buying guns.

“Those who block or delay common-sense gun laws, (…) we will not forget.”

The conservative camp has also refused so far to reinstate a ban on the sale of assault rifles to civilians, like the one that existed in the United States between 1994 and 2004 for certain semi-automatic weapons.
