“I recently signed the first major bipartisan gun reform legislation in nearly thirty years, which includes actions that will save lives. But there is much more work to be done, and I will not give up on the epidemic of gun violence.” , Biden said in his announcement.

Joe Biden said he was “shocked” by the shooting incident near Chicago that killed 6 people and injured 24 during a national holiday parade.

“Jill and I are appalled by the senseless gun violence that once again brought grief to an American community on Independence Day.

As always, we are grateful to first responders and law enforcement.

I spoke with Governor Pritzker and Mayor Rotering and offered the full support of the federal government to their communities.

I also called on federal law enforcement to assist in the urgent search for the shooter, who currently remains at large.

Members of the community should follow the instructions of the authorities and I will be watching closely as we learn more about those whose lives were lost and pray for those hospitalized with serious injuries.

I recently signed the first major bipartisan gun reform legislation in nearly thirty years, which includes actions that will save lives. But there is much more work to be done, and I will not give up on the fight against the epidemic of gun violence,” Biden said in his statement.
