United States: Speaking to a teachers union only a few miles from the Highland Park Fourth of July parade Gun Fire Incident, US Vice President Kamala Harris on Tuesday called on Congress to enact a new assault weapons prohibition.
“Yesterday should have been a day to join together with family and friends to celebrate our nation’s independence, but unfortunately, that community suffered a horrible tragedy,” Harris said in the opening statement of her speech.
At the National Education Association’s annual meeting in Chicago, she declared, “We need to stop this violence.

“And we need to safeguard our neighborhoods from the terror of gun violence. I’ve said it before, you know: enough is enough.
“Congress needs to have the braveness to act and renew the attack-guns ban,” she stated.
“An assault weapon is designed to kill a number of human beings — fast,” she said.
Raising her voice, she delivered: “There is no motive that we’ve got guns of conflict at the streets of America. We need affordable gun-protection legal guidelines.
