President of the United State Joe Biden has said the US should ban assault-style weapons and high-capacity magazines to tackle thekillings from gun violence following string of mass shootings in the country.

Biden in a primetime speech to the nation from the White House, said too many everyday places in America had become killing fields, stressing that if Congress cannot outlaw such weapons, it should seek to raise the age to buy them from 18 to 21.

The President also called for expanding federal background checks and nationwide red flag laws, which allow law enforcement to remove weapons from anyone deemed dangerous.

The prospects for Congress passing any gun control measures look uncertain, and the US Supreme Court could instead be poised to expand Americans’ gun rights in a landmark case that justices are considering.
