today’s big news
assault rifle ban
The law banning assault rifles expired in 2004 and Congress has repeatedly failed to renew it, even though the country has repeated mass shootings. Many Republicans oppose the ban, citing the constitutional right to gun ownership.
‘There should be very strict laws for the use of weapons’
Gun firing incidents have been happening frequently in America. Many lives have been lost due to gun violence. Meanwhile, US President Joe Biden is determined to ban weapons once and for all. He had said earlier also that I am tired of these firings. We should have very strict laws for the use of weapons. However the prospect of banning assault weapons in the US Congress is almost impossible in the near future.
