The United States has seen unprecedented mass shootings in the last two days. The first shooting took place on August 3rd at a Walmart store in El Paso, Texas, which resulted in killing 20 people and injuring 26 people. The second mass shooting took place in Dayton, Ohio on August 4th, killing 10 people and wounding 27 others. Violence has increased multiple folds since Donald Trump took office in 2017. In less than three years, more than 40 mass shootings happened in different parts of the United States, killing more the 250 people. The USA stands first in Gun-related death rates compared to the other high-income countries. Two mass shooting incidents within 24 hours shows how security has lapsed under Trump’s administration. In the end, citizens are being killed for no fault of theirs.
Joe Biden vows to eliminate gun violence once he becomes the President of the United States with his Criminal Justice Policy. As soon as the incident took place, Joe Biden took Twitter to express his views. He condemned the mass shootings and asked the Trump administration about citizens’ lives at the cost of these shootings. He reiterated - “Assault weapons and high-capacity magazines don’t belong on our streets. We must stand up to the National Rifle Association of America and gun manufacturers—they don’t own this country. We the people own this country.”

We are in a battle for the soul of this nation. And in this moment, we all have a responsibility to declare with conviction that hatred and bigotry and white supremacy have no place in America. We will give hate no safe harbor.— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) August 4, 2019
