Joe Biden, visibly saddened and frustrated, questioned gun laws in the United States.

“They saw their friends dying as if they were on the battlefield.”

That was one of the most devastating phrases in US President Joe Biden’s first statement after the shooting that killed at least 19 elementary school children and two teachers this Tuesday at Rob Elementary School in Wolverhampton, Texas.

“They will live with it for the rest of their lives,” he added.

“There are still a lot of things we don’t know, but we know parents will never see their children again,” Biden said.
