Washington: The Joe Biden administration is now looking strict to rein in the incident of gun firing in America. US President Joe Biden has signed the Gun Control Law on Saturday. After the increasing incidents of shoot outs in America, an initiative was taken to bring this law. Under this bill, there will be a strict background check of people who buy guns from under age. Along with this, the states will be given the right to withdraw weapons from people considered dangerous.
This law was being demanded for a long time to curb gun culture in America. The US Senate passed this gun control bill on Thursday. The President says that this will save many lives.
US President Joe Biden said at the White House before leaving for major diplomatic summits in Europe that the bill doesn’t do everything I want, but it covers what I have long called for. Have done what is necessary to save lives. He said that now people’s lives will be saved. Referring to the families of those killed in the shooting, Biden said that we had to do something on this, which we did.
The final approval was given by the House on Friday after the Senate passed it on Thursday and Biden signed it before leaving for two summits in Europe. The law would strictly enforce background checks for the youngest gun buyers. Along with this, the states will be given the right to withdraw weapons from people considered dangerous. Apart from this, funds will be provided to programs for school safety, mental health and violence prevention.
Let us tell you that the incident of gun firing is common in America. Many people have lost their lives in mass shootings. There have been many incidents of firing in schools in which hundreds of children have lost their lives. More recently, there was a shooting incident in a primary school in Texas, which involved the massacre of 19 students and two teachers. Now the law related to Gun Control is considered to be very important so that gun violence can be stopped.
