The US Vice President at the funeral of a shooting victim

US Vice President Kamala Harris has called for a ban on assault weapons in the wake of two fatal mass shootings in the United States.

Harris made the comments while attending the funeral of Ruth Whitfield, 86, who was killed in a supermarket shooting on May 14.

A few days ago, another attack occurred on an elementary school in Texas, killing 19 children and two teachers.

Recalling these and other attacks, Harris said it was time to say “stop” to gun violence.
