President Biden Signs Bipartisan Gun Control Law

President Joe Biden signed a bipartisan gun control legislation early Saturday morning while criticizing the decisions of the Supreme Court.

While signing the new law, Biden expressed how long it’s been since he worked on gun safety laws and hopes it will save lives from gun violence. ‘I have been at this work for a long, long time. I know how hard it is. I was there 30 years ago, the last time this nation passed meaningful gun safety laws. While this bill doesn’t do everything I want, it does include actions I’ve long called for that will save lives,’ he said with First Lady Jill Biden by his side.

Biden also acknowledged the work of families who lost loved ones due to gun violence: “If we can reach a compromise on guns, we should be able to compromise on other critical issues. They led the way so other families will not have the experience of pain and trauma that they had.”

The bill includes enhanced background checks for young gun purchasers, mental health services, and allowing states to pass red flag laws regarding gun safety.

He also addressed the Supreme Court’s recent decision to overturn Roe v. Wade on Friday.

“I think the Supreme Court has made some terrible decisions,”

The White House released a statement on Friday in reference to the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

“Today is a — it’s not hyperbole to suggest a very solemn moment.  Today, the Supreme Court of the United States expressly took away a constitutional right from the American people that it had already recognized. They didn’t limit it.  They simply took it away.  That’s never been done to a right so important to so many Americans. But they did it.

And it’s a sad day for the Court and for the country. Fifty years ago, Roe v. Wade was decided and has been the law of the land since then. This landmark case protected a woman’s right to choose, her right to make intensely personal decisions with her doctor, free from the inter- — from the interference of politics.

It reaffirmed basic principles of equality — that women have the power to control their own destiny.  And it reinforced the fundamental right of privacy — the right of each of us to choose how to live our lives.Now, with Roe gone, let’s be very clear: The health and life of women in this nation are now at risk.”
