WHITE HOUSE – U.S. President Joe Biden vowed Wednesday to reduce gun violence as he warned the nation about a dangerous summer spike in killings.
“We’re taking on the bad actors doing bad and dangerous things in our communities and to our country,” he said in a White House speech outlining a comprehensive government program.
Biden vowed “zero tolerance” for rogue gun dealers and those who traffic weapons from city to city.
“We’ll make sure you can’t sell death and mayhem on our streets,” he said.
The Biden administration will permit $350 billion in federal stimulus money to fund police departments in areas with rising violent crime rates.
