– Joe Biden goes to Wolverhampton and is even more shocked by the murder
President Joe Biden, known for his remorse, will try to alleviate the suffering of the families of the victims on Sunday, five days after he was killed at a school.
Joe Biden travels to Wolverhampton, Texas, on Sunday to offer his condolences to loved ones who were shocked by the shooting, which shocked the United States five days after the massacre at an elementary school and re-ignited the gun debate.
“You can not make plays illegal, I know, but we can make America safer,” the U.S. president pleaded on Saturday, lamenting that “many, many innocent people have died in many places.” , Which is one of the worst shootings in the country in recent years.
The 79-year-old Democrat, who lost his two children – his daughter who is still a child in a car accident, and his one-year-old son cancer – spoke of his own suffering after the murders. “Losing a child is like snatching a part of your soul away from you,” he said Tuesday. “Nothing will ever be the same again.”
In Uvalde, Joe Biden is scheduled to meet with affected families, local leaders and religious leaders. Known for his empathy, he can undoubtedly find words in the face of the suffering of loved ones. But the head of state cannot guarantee that action will be taken against those who demand strict control of guns.
The narrow Democratic parliamentary majority did not allow him to pass significant legislation on this issue alone. The elected representatives of his camp must persuade a few Republicans to get the required qualified majority. The White House, which has been reluctant to involve Joe Biden more in the political battle, said on Thursday that it needed “congressional help” through its spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre.
Echoing Vice President Kamala Harris’ message on Saturday, elected officials said “the gun lobby should have the courage to stand up once and for all and enact reasonable security laws on ‘firearms’ matters.
“Let everyone die”
The Uvalde massacre and the childish faces of its victims plunged the United States back into the dream of school shootings. Residents of this small town have a monument to the victims in its center, now remembering the plight of the survivors.
Humberto Renovato, 33, told AFP on Saturday: “We want to help these children recover from this trauma.
Upon entering the room, the shooter told the children, “You’re all going to die,” 10-year-old Samuel Salinas told ABC before the shooting. “I think he’s targeting me,” the boy testified, but the chair between him and the shooter blocked the bullet. In a room covered in blood on the floor, Samuel Salinas tried to “play dead” to avoid being targeted by shots.
Mia Cherillo, 11, tried to avoid the attention of the shooter in the same way. The girl covered herself in the blood of a friend, whose body was near her, he explained to CNN in an untouched testimony. She had just seen the young man kill his teacher after saying “Good night”.
Another student, Daniel, told the “Washington Post” that when the victims waited for the police to arrive and rescue themselves, no one shouted. “I was scared and depressed because the bullets almost hit me.” Surviving children are “shocked and have to live with it for the rest of their lives,” said his mother, Briana Ruiz.
It took police about an hour on Tuesday to put an end to the massacre. The 19 agents on the site were waiting for a special unit attack. Delay in intervention that caused serious controversy and a media gulp from Texas officials. However, the victim received numerous calls to the police from those in the two classrooms, including one child pleading “Please send the police immediately.”
