American leader Joe Biden announced an “epidemic” of violence in the United States due to the recent frequent shooting incidents, RIA Novosti reports.
“Gun violence in this country is an epidemic and a shame in the face of the whole world,” Biden said.
The US President instructed the US Department of Justice to take a number of measures in the areas of ensuring public safety and tightening the circulation of weapons among civilians.
One of the stages of this program will be the development of recommendations for local authorities to adopt a law that would allow relatives through the courts to demand limitation of their relatives’ access to weapons in the event of a conflict or a threat of suicide.
We will remind, two people were seriously injured two days ago as a result of shooting in the city of Frederick in Maryland. The attacker was eliminated at the Fort Dietrick military base.
On the eve of the ex-player of the US National Football League shot a doctor, his wife and two children, and then committed suicide.
