Biden: “We cannot let it become normal”
The University of Nevada at Las Vegas is the latest college campus to be terrorized by a horrific act of gun violence, US President Joe Biden said in a statement about the attack.
Stating that he and his wife Jill Biden prayed for those who lost their lives in the attack, Biden said, “Our nation has experienced approximately 40 thousand deaths due to more than 600 mass shootings and acts of gun violence this year alone. This is not normal. “We can never let this become normal,” he said.
