That was fast.
During Monday’s White House Press Conference, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was quick to politicize the elementary school shooting in Nashville, Tennessee —blaming Republicans for not acting on gun control.
Watch the clip above.
“How many more children have to be murdered before Republicans in Congress will step up and act to pass the assault weapons ban?” the press secretary 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.”
From The Daily Wire:
President Joe Biden has been briefed on the shooting and is actively talking with local leaders in Nashville, according to Jean-Pierre. Biden commented on the shooting during the Small Business Administration’s Women’s Business Summit Monday afternoon, calling on Congress to pass his gun control legislation.
“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.”
6 people were killed during the shooting, including 3 students. The shooter was killed at the scene.
