President Biden Urges Americans to Stand up to the Gun Lobby

He demanded that action be taken by lawmakers

Americans must stand up to the gun lobby and pressure members of Congress to pass sensible gun laws, U.S. President Joe Biden said on Tuesday after the killing of at least 19 children and two teachers in a Texas school shooting.

"As a nation, we have to ask when in God's name we're going to stand up to the gun lobby, when in God's name we do what we all know in our gut needs to be done," Biden said in a televised speech, his voice rising to a crescendo.

"I am sick and tired of it," Biden added. "We have to act. And don't tell me we can't have an impact on this carnage."
