Biden speaks on gun safety

The NewsNation — Tuesday afternoon, President Joe Biden will go to Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, to make a speech about his Safer America Plan, including gun safety throughout the country.

In accordance with Biden’s plan, assault weapons, high-capacity magazines, and ghost guns will be outlawed; background checks will be necessary for all gun sales, with some exceptions; court backlogs will be cleared up, pretrial supervision of criminal cases will be improved, and 100,000 additional police officers will be hired and trained for community policing over the course of the next five years.

Biden will use his visit on Tuesday, according to the White House, to criticize Republicans for rejecting his plan to reinstate a ban on assault-style guns. After the shootings in Buffalo, New York, and Uvalde, Texas, both parties came together in a rare effort to enact bipartisan gun safety legislation earlier this year.

At 3:15 p.m. local time, the president is scheduled to speak at Wilkes University. The article will be live streamed by NewsNation in the player up above.

After testing positive for COVID-19, Biden’s visit to the institution was postponed from its initial date in July.

Thursday night in Philadelphia, Vice President Joe Biden is scheduled to give a prime-time speech after his comments in Wilkes-Barre. Outside Independence Hall, the president will talk on “the ongoing battle for the soul of the nation.”

According to the White House, “He will talk about the progress we have made as a country to protect our democracy, but how our rights and freedoms are still under attack.” “And he will make it clear who is fighting for those freedoms, for those rights, and for our democracy.”

Speech by Vice President Biden at Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre arrives as Democrats work to thwart Republican attempts to use the two months away midterm elections to capitalize on popular anxiety over crime.

It’s a particularly contentious subject in Pennsylvania, a crucial swing state where the governor’s office and a U.S. Senate seat are up for grabs.
