"This country has more guns than people. America would be the most secure country in the world if it had more guns. She said that we are not." She was visibly affected by the 21 deaths at Robb School on Tuesday, May 24th. To insist:
Joe Biden will be in Uvalde on Sunday, May 29, at 9:15 a.m. According to a White House statement, the US President and Jill Biden will "share the grief with the community".
The controversy surrounding gun control is dividing the country. This Friday, the National Rifle Association (NRA), a powerful pro-gun lobby, will hold its annual meeting in Texas, three days after the horrific shooting.
According to a recent study done by the health authorities, guns have overtaken road accidents as the leading cause of death in the United States.
