MADRID, 24 Ene. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The President of the United States, Joe Biden, has expressed his condolences on Tuesday for the seven fatalities of a shooting perpetrated on Monday in the coastal city of Half Moon Bay (California), with a message in which he has urged Congress to move forward "quickly" on gun law.
Specifically, Biden has once again called for a law to ban assault weapons, in order to "keep communities, schools, workplaces and homes safe" throughout the country. This same Monday, a group of senators has presented a new project that would raise the minimum age to buy this type of weapon to 21 years.
The president has promised "all the support" of the federal government after the Half Moon Bay incident, which resulted in seven deaths. They join ten other fatalities from an attack last weekend in Monterey Park, also in California, during the Chinese New Year celebrations.
"For the second time in recent days, California mourns the loss of loved ones in a senseless act of gun violence," Biden lamented in a statement.
