Biden is set to speak at Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund’s “Gun Sense University,” an annual conference bringing together gun violence survivors, volunteers and advocates for training on organizing efforts. Attendees will include volunteers from Moms Demand Action and Students Demand Action, two groups founded in the wake of major mass shootings in schools. The volunteers will fan out across Capitol Hill for meetings with lawmakers to push for further gun safety laws on Tuesday.

“President Biden’s appearance at Gun Sense University is just the latest example of his decades-long commitment to solving America’s gun violence crisis,” said John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety. “When it comes to gun safety, President Biden understands that this is truly a life-or-death issue, and our volunteers are proud to stand alongside the Biden-Harris Administration.”

The president’s speech will take place two weeks before the anniversary of the signing of the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, comprehensive gun safety legislation that received Democratic and Republican support in the wake of the massacre at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, in 2022.

The legislation enhanced background checks and boosted money for mental health programs. The administration this year tapped a provision in the law to attempt to close the so-called “gun show loophole.” But the bill fell short of achieving some of Democrats’ long-sought-after gun reforms, including passing an assault weapons ban that Biden has vowed to pursue if reelected.

“I’m going to go back and once again ban assault weapons in America,” Biden said at a rally in Philadelphia last month. “I did it once; I’ll do it again.”

  1. This could be a good thing for those of us in states that have the stupid: it might get the Supreme Court to get off their asses and address the clearly unconstitutional “assault” weapons bans that states have in place.

  2. “I did it once; I’ll do it again.”

    Hmmm no, actually you didn’t. You ended up ‘banning’ a couple of ‘features’, for example, bayonet lugs, plus, even then for what the bill did one could still buy those guns that were made prior to the bill and during the bill period and after the bill period plus your ‘claimed ban’ did squat for the crime rate.

  3. He has all this banning assault weapon crap on X. Like he’s really sitting there posting on X. We all know what’s going on here. He’s on the toilet with the runs after eating too much ice cream, and his handlers are busy posting on X. What a joke.

    1. They’ve been trying to cultivate a following on TikTok for some time now because that’s where the kids are. They’ve even hired influencers to push their message. They managed to work up to a little over 350k followers.

      Trump gets on TikTok and immediately has millions of followers.

      But Biden has mainstream propaganda and search engines working for him.

  4. Like hell you will Gropin Joe. The British tried to confiscate guns, ammo and powder in 1776 and the PATRIOTS said NOPE! Hitler banned guns and killed OVER 14 million people, 6 million were Jews. Stalin banned guns and he killed how many million Russians? Castro banned guns and he killed a few million Cubans, see where this is going? When politicians say we don’t need guns, that’s a lie from the mouth of Satan himself. When politicians say we don’t need guns, that’s proof that we need more. When politicians say we don’t need guns and we can trust the Government to protect us, that’s BULLSHIT! I DON’T trust our Government. I DON’T trust politicians. i DON’T trust Gropin Joe Biden nor ANY DEMONcrat!
