President Joe Biden challenged US lawmakers to swiftly toughen the nation’s gun laws to stop a steady stream of deadly mass shootings, the most recent in a Texas elementary school on Tuesday. 

Biden, speaking at a White House event on Wednesday, urged lawmakers to defy what he called “powerful lobbies” that have successfully thwarted gun-control legislation for decades.
