US President Joe Biden renews call for national assault-weapons ban, other gun safety measures

US President Joe Biden yesterday renewed his call for a national assault weapons ban and other gun safety measures, a day after eight people were murdered at a Texas shopping mall in the latest mass shooting that shake the nation. Responders, distressed witnesses, and police described scenes of panic and horror north of Dallas, where video footage circulating online showed the shooter exiting a sedan in an outlet mall parking lot on Saturday and firing with a semi-automatic rifle on people walking nearby. An officer on an unrelated call nearby quickly responded and neutralized the shooter at the large facility in Allen, police said.
