Washington continues to hold negotiations on gun reform. The violence is increasing. Since the massacre at Uvalde High School, Texas, two mass shootings have taken place each day.
Students are continuing to protest Congress' inaction, and have taken to the streets from Maryland to California.
The House Republicans voted against most gun reform proposals this week. While some Republicans back tightening school security measures, students say they are still concerned.
It's amazing to realize that even though I go to school each day, it's a blessing that I can come home every night. Michael Kahwaty, a Little Falls student, said that he doesn't feel that way. He lives in New Jersey and officers patrol the school halls.
"How much more carnage can we accept?" In a primetime speech, Mr. Biden stated.
Many of the president's ideas are not on the table in a divided U.S. Senate. This is because 60 votes are required and both parties must support it.
CBS News was informed by Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) that "right now there aren’t the votes in Senate to ban assault weapons." "But, there may be votes in the Senate that will allow us to expand our background checking system to help states pass red flag' laws for additional funding for mental health."
Friday's statement by Mr. Biden indicated that he would soon be involved.
He said, "I will do my best to make sure we make some real progress."
