The National Rifle Association (NRA) has actually vowed to combat back after President Joe Biden called on Congress to enhance gun control steps in the middle of the third anniversary of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass shooting in Parkland, Florida.

On Sunday, Biden assured Parkland families that his administration will “do better” on weapon reform, and urged Congress to enact stricter gun laws.

” Over these three years, the Parkland families have actually taught all of us something profound. Time and again, they have revealed us how we can turn our grief into purpose– to march, organize, and develop a strong, inclusive, and long lasting motion for modification,” he said in a declaration released by the White Home.

” This Administration will not wait for the next mass shooting to heed that call. We will act to end our epidemic of weapon violence and make our schools and neighborhoods much safer.”

The NRA reacted by pledging to “NEVER stop fighting for the 2nd Modification!”

He added: “We owe it to all those we’ve lost and to all those left behind to grieve to make a change.

On Sunday, numerous events were held across southern Florida to commemorate the 14 students and 3 personnel members killed in the terrible mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018.

Doves were flown in Coral Springs and flags positioned at half-staff outside the Parkland Hall.

” Last Congress, moved by the daily epidemic of weapon violence and directed by the millions of young individuals marching for their lives, House Democrats took strong action to save lives and end the bloodshed by passing H.R. 8, the Bipartisan Background Checks Act, and H.R. 1112, the Boosted Background Checks Act,” she said in a statement on Sunday.

Newsweek reached out to the NRA for remark.
