Biden is set to address the nation at 7:30 p.m. ET from the White House, which said Biden will make a “call to action” in response to the shootings.
An 18-year-old man entered an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas with an AR-15-style assault rifle last Tuesday, killing 19 students and two teachers before he was killed by law enforcement.
“It’s time to turn this pain into action.”
On Wednesday, another gunman fatally shot his doctor and three other people in a Tulsa, Oklahoma, hospital – just three hours after purchasing an AR-15-style rifle. The gunman died from what police said appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
As many as 10 other people may have been wounded in the shootings there.
