As many across the country reacted to this tragic incident, President Biden spoke about the deadliest school shooting since Sandy Hooks and asked:
When, in the name of God, will we stand up in the gun corridor? When, in the name of God, will we do what we know in our guts to do?
In an emotional speech, the president also stated:
How many young children … witnessed what happened – seeing their friends die, as if they were on a battlefield, for God’s sake?
