Biden said that investigations into the attack, which he described as “heinous” and “a family’s worst nightmare”, are continuing and that they are closely following the developments.
Stating that more should be done to prevent armed attacks, Biden drew attention to the fact that the attacker had 2 long-barreled guns and a pistol.
President Biden urged Congress to pass legislation reforming armaments regulations, highlighting the importance of his decree banning assault weapons and a comprehensive criminal record check on arms sales.
