Precisely this Thursday, the president of the United States, Joe Biden, announced a series of measures of limited scope to tackle violence with firearms in his country, and demanded that Congress stop tolerating a problem that he described as a “international shame”.
Two weeks after the mass shootings that left 18 dead in Georgia and Colorado, Biden unveiled several initiatives to contain gun violence, but acknowledged that he will not be able to do much on his own if Congress does not stop blocking any attempt to increase control of pistols and rifles.

The president recalled that Every day 106 people are killed by gunshots in the United States, Every month there are 53 femicides committed with pistols, and that armed violence “impacts the black and Latino population much more.”
