US President Joe Biden declared the growing gun violence in the country to be an epidemic and an international embarrassment.

Biden said that whether or not Congress takes action, he will take all measures under his control as president to protect the American people from gun violence. He said that members of Parliament gave many views and expressed their desire. But he did not pass a single new federal law to reduce gun violence.
