President Joe Biden renewed his campaign for gun control in the wake of the July 4 attack on a motorcade in Chicago’s Highland Park suburb.
Breitbart News reported that the attack killed at least six and wounded 24 others.
Biden responded to the attack by publishing a statement expressing regret for the attack, praising first responders, and urging the local community to cooperate with law enforcement as they pursue the suspect behind the attack.
He used the last part of his statement to push for more gun control. “I recently signed the first major bipartisan gun reform legislation in nearly thirty years into law, which includes actions that will save lives. But there is a lot of work to be done, and I am not going to give up fighting the epidemic of gun violence.”
Breitbart noted that at least 54 people were shot dead in Mayor Lightfoot (de) Chicago on Friday through Monday morning. These 54 shooting victims do not include the individuals shot during the Highland Park Parade.
The Chicago Sun Times Reports That 320 people were killed in Chicago on January 1, 2022 through July 3, 2022.
