April 29, 2021
Determining that "enough is enough," President Joe Biden announced a series of executive actions to reduce gun violence.
Vice President Kamala Harris joined the commander-in-chief in calling on Congress to pass more extensive gun-control legislation.
"This is an epidemic, for God's sake, and it has to stop," President Biden remarked outside of the White House in the Rose Garden.
Vice President Harris said she had seen gun violence up close.
"I have looked at autopsy photographs. I have seen with my own two eyes what a bullet can do to the human body," the vice president noted.
