President Joe Biden will travel to Uvalde, Texas, on Sunday as the community grieves for the 19 children and two fourth grade teachers shot dead at Robb Elementary School.
BIDEN, LIKE OBAMA, PROMISES UNITY BUT DOESN'T DELIVER
Biden's trip announcement comes after he addressed the nation this week from the Roosevelt Room in the White House. In his speech, he expressed his frustration with anti-gun legislation congressional gridlock but did not propose specific reforms. But he did reference his past work passing an assault weapons ban, which has since lapsed and not been renewed.
"Why are we willing to live with this carnage?" Biden asked. "Why do we keep letting this happen? Where in God’s name is our backbone to have the courage to deal with it and stand up to the lobbies?"
He added: "It’s time to turn this pain into action."

Biden's itinerary is similar to the journey he made to Buffalo, New York, this month after 10 black shoppers were killed by a white man at a Tops Friendly Market. The shooter had espoused support for "great replacement" theory. The incident is being investigated as a racially motivated hate crime.
