US President Joe Biden known as Tuesday for Congress to behave rapidly to ban assault weapons, as California reeled from two lethal mass shootings in lower than 48 hours.

A bunch of senators on Monday reintroduced a federal Assault Weapons Ban and laws that may increase the minimal buy age for assault weapons to 21.

“We all know the scourge of gun violence throughout America requires stronger motion. I as soon as once more urge each chambers of Congress to behave rapidly and ship this Assault Weapons Ban to my desk, and take motion to maintain American communities, colleges, workplaces, and houses secure,” Biden stated in an announcement.

A suspected gunman was in custody Tuesday over the killing of seven individuals in a rural neighborhood in northern California, simply two days after a mass capturing at a Lunar New 12 months celebration close to Los Angeles.

A regulation banning assault rifles expired in 2004 and Congress has repeatedly didn’t renew it even because the nation endures repeated mass shootings.

Many Republicans oppose a ban, citing the constitutional proper to gun possession.
