When I made the heartbreaking visit to families in Newtown nearly ten years ago, I promised them then that we would take action to help keep our kids safe in the classroom.

It’s taken a decade, because for too long Congress has failed to make meaningful progress on gun safety reform. Our country has endured too many tragedies since then, most recently with the horrific shootings in Buffalo and Uvalde.

When I traveled to Uvalde last month, I heard a clear message from families there: do something. Since then, I’ve carried their message forward – enough is enough, this time we have to do something.

Today, with the bipartisan cloture vote in the Senate, I am glad to see Congress has moved significantly closer to finally doing something – passing bipartisan legislation that will help protect Americans.

Our kids in schools and our communities will be safer because of this legislation. I call on Congress to finish the job and get this bill to my desk. – President Joe Biden

  1. When you have Bidenius Pervertus praising you, you better run from him. Instead you tell us you were motivated to do something, even if unconstitutional. That makes you a DIABLO – – Demonrat In All But Label Only.

    For shame, how is this fulfilling your entrusted contract with we the people to uphold the Constitution per your oath? But fortunately, Justice Clarence Thomas just handed you a lifeline – your proposed bill is unconstitutional – – so run, don’t walk, away from the bill.

    But you could have saved yourself from the embarrassment of getting preemptively getting smacked down, after all your lies and contortions to claim your support is legitimate.

    Just keep your promise, for the handful of bovine scat that it’s worth, and don’t run again in 2026. We’ve had enough disappointments from you and your ilk.
