Biden demands gun control following Uvalde, Texas, elementary school shooting
President Biden called for changes to gun laws Tuesday and expressed his heartbreak in his address to the nation following a mass shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.
"To lose a child is like having a piece of your soul ripped away," said Biden, who learned of the shooting at Robb Elementary School while on Air Force One returning from his trip to Asia. "There's a hollowness in your chest, you feel like you're being sucked into it, never able to get out. Suffocating. It's never quite the same."
