Washington: The increasing number of shootings in public places in the United States has caused fear among the people of that country.
Several people, including 19 children, were killed in a shooting at an elementary school in the Wolde area of Texas on the 24th of last month. This has resonated across the country.
US President Joe Biden told reporters at the White House
The growing culture of gun violence in the United States is worrying. The use of weapons such as firearms should be banned.
If not we should raise the appropriate age. One can increase the age to buy a gun from 18 to 21. High-capacity guns should be banned. Safety laws need to be strengthened and stricter restrictions imposed on gun manufacturers.
This is not to rob anyone of their rights. To protect our children, families and communities. It is to protect our freedom to go to schools, churches and shops.
