Speaking at the White House where he had ordered flags to fly at half-staff in honour of the victims, President Joe Biden kicked off the inevitable debate about gun control.

Declaring himself ‘sick and tired’ of the cyclical discussion, he called for voters to ‘turn this pain into action’ to prevent more mass killings. ‘We have to act,’ he said.

‘As a nation, we have to ask, when in God’s name are we going to stand up to the gun lobby? When in God’s name will we do what we all know in our gut needs to be done,’ he said.

Addressing the nation on Tuesday, Vice President Kamala Harris said “our hearts keep getting broken”, adding that “enough is enough”.
