U.S. President Joe Biden signed Saturday the most sweeping gun control bill in nearly 30 years after the U.S. House of Representatives passed the legislation. “Lives will be saved,” he said at the White House. Citing the families of shooting victims, the president said: “Their message to us was to do something. Well, today, we did.”
A bipartisan group of senators announced Sunday a proposal to combat gun violence, stemming from a concerted effort on Capitol Hill to respond to a string of deadly mass shootings in the United States.
