As Americans mourn the loss in Texas, New York, California, and Oklahoma, the past few weeks were filled with gun violence.
Two weeks ago, news of the Oklahoma shooting came less than two week after the tragedy of a mass shooting at a Texas school in Uvalde that killed 19 children and left two teachers.
A little more than a week later, another mass shooting occurred at a Buffalo supermarket, New York. An 18-year old gunman killed 10 Blacks. people.
Just one day after the New York shootings, five people were shot in May 2015. peopleOne person was also killed and two others were injured in a Laguna Woods church, Calif.
Meanwhile, President Joe Biden spent the weekend in Uvalde, Texas to grieve with a community who he stated made clear to him that they want Washington to tighten gun regulations after the shooting rampage that claimed 19 lives and injured two teachers. Biden heard similar calls for an overhaul of the nation’s gun laws earlier this month when he met with families of 10 Black peoplevictim of a racist attack on a Buffalo supermarket.
However, bipartisan senators held a private virtual meeting Tuesday night to attempt to reach a compromise on gun safety legislation. Expectations remain low. Senators aren’t expected to even broach ideas for an assault weapon ban or other restrictions that could be popular with the public as ways to curb the most lethal mass shootings. John Cornyn (Republican from Texas), who was a co-chair of the session, is not expected to bring up any ideas for an assault weapon ban or other restrictions that could be popular with the public as ways to curb mass shootings. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., and Thom Tillis, R-N.C., called Tuesday’s talks a “very constructive conversation.”
Meanwhile, House Judiciary Committee Jerrold Nadler plans to hold a hearing Thursday on the “Protecting our Kids Act” — a package of eight bills that has almost no hopes of passing the Senate but would serve as a marker in the debate. It calls for an increase in the age limit for semi-automatic rifles to be purchased from 18 to 21; to create a grant program that will buy back large-capacity magazines; to establish voluntary safe practices regarding firearm storage; and to implement executive measures to ban bump stock and 3-D printed ghost guns.
