US President Joe Biden supported the initiative to tighten control over the circulation of firearms in the country.

The American leader believes that this initiative will help save lives.

According to the head of the White House, the initiative reflects steps in the right direction.

He stated that this bill will be a significant document on the safe possession of weapons.
