Biden Admin Blames Republicans For Nashville School Shooting, Demands Return Of Ineffective Assault Weapons Ban



The Biden administration has blamed Republicans for the grade school shooting on Monday that killed three adults and three children. 

The shooting occurred at Covenant Christian school in Nashville when a 28-year-old woman armed with two “assault-style rifles and a handgun” and gunned down three children and three staff members. Police say the woman is a former student of the private Christian campus.

The Biden administration quickly politicized the tragedy by blaming Republicans and calling for a reinstatement of the notoriously ineffective 1994 Federal Assault Weapons ban. 

“How many more children have to be murdered before Republicans in Congress will step up and act to pass the assault weapons ban?” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre asked during a Monday afternoon press conference. “Once again, the president calls on Congress to do something before another child is senselessly killed in a preventable act of gun violence.”

President Biden also called for Congress to reinstate the assault weapons ban. 

“We have to do more to stop gun violence. It’s ripping our communities apart,” the president said. “We have to do more to protect our schools so they’re not turned into prisons.”

“I call on Congress again to pass my assault weapons ban,” he added.

Notably, the 1994 Federal Assault Weapons ban was found to have no effect on firearm homicide rates during the time it was in place and a 2014 study found “murder rates were 19.3% higher when the Federal ban was in effect.” Further, school shootings slightly increased after the ban was enacted.
