[WATCH] POTUS Urges Americans to Vote For Candidates Who Support Stricter Gun Laws After Tragic July 4th Parade Massacre

“It’s a battle for the soul of America.”

That’s how President Joe Biden often frames the discussion around gun violence and the inability to pass stricter gun legislation thanks to obstruction from Republicans in Congress. The package the President signed on June 24th was a compromise hammered out by a bipartisan group of Senators that left out a few key components which have left gun rights advocates frustrated.

“Each day we’re reminded there’s nothing guaranteed about our democracy,” the President said. “We have to earn it by voting.”

The President has been repeating his message of making guns “a voting issue” for months, encouraging voters to support Democrats who plan to enact even stricter gun laws once their Congressional majority is expanded. “You’ve got to make sure that this becomes a voting issue,” the President said on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” the first week of June, soon after the shooting massacre at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. “It’s got to be one of those issues where you decide your position on the issue of senator or candidate for House or Senate, on what we’re going to do with assault weapons … what you say on those things is going to determine how I vote for you. It should be one of those issues.”

“This is not your father’s Republican Party. This is a MAGA party. It’s a very different Republican Party. And so you find people who are worried, I believe, that if they vote for rational gun policy, they’re going to be primaried and they’re gonna lose in a hard-right Republican primary,” President Biden said.

The President also has urged voter turnout to ensure abortion protections, as an expanded Congressional majority could codify Roe v Wade. But on Monday, his mind was on Highland Park.
