Voice should be raised against gun violence – Biden
After this incident, the US President said in his tweet, we should raise our voice against the epidemic like gun violence in all forms. I signed the most important gun safety legislation in nearly three decades, but we must do more. Places which are considered safe for celebration should never be turned into places of terror and violence.
In a statement by White, the US President said, we must address the inequalities that promote violence against LGBTQI+ people. Jill and I are praying for the families of the 5 people killed in the Colorado violence and those injured in this senseless attack. So far no motive for this attack has been clear.
