US President Joe Biden has been criticized by netizens over a mass shooting controversy.
Biden recently appeared on ABC’s talk show ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ He explained why he has not yet taken administrative action on gun control.
US President Joe Biden discusses gun control
‘Jimmy Kimmel Live! ‘ comes after an ongoing debate about how to prevent gun violence at the height of the Uvalde school massacre.
On May 24, there was a fatal shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde. 18-year-old high school student Salvador Ramos opened fire at a school, killing 19 students and two teachers.
The sniper was shot and killed on the spot by off-duty customs and border guards from an elite unit.
Nevertheless, the police have been heavily criticized for failing to stop the case quickly and rescue the victim in time.

Host Jimmy Kimmel pressed Biden on this topic. He was referring to how former US President Donald Trump issued an executive order ‘like Halloween candy’.
He said, ‘Can’t you issue an executive order? Trump delivered it like Halloween candy.’
Biden said he had given the administration’s decisions “within the power of the president.”
“Republicans don’t do it fairly, so why do they do it intuitively,” Trump said. I do not know? If we do the same things they do, our democracy will literally be in jeopardy.’
I know your point, but this is different. We are in a crisis and we must do everything, absolutely everything, to protect our children from being killed in our schools. An executive order was issued for this moment in history.

He further pointed out that ‘it’s like playing monopoly with someone who doesn’t play Go and doesn’t follow any rules’.
Kimmel then asked what would happen if Biden didn’t follow the rules.
Referring to the board game, lawmaker Lee replied, ‘Well, you should send him to jail.’
If our government can’t do anything after 19 children have been slaughtered and several have been beheaded, then it’s time for someone to form a government.

User reaction to US President Joe Biden’s gun control measures
President Joe Biden was criticized for his remarks on an executive order against gun violence on a late-night talk show.
Most users argued that it was time for Biden to do his best to protect his children and the country.
One user said, ‘Tonight, Biden will not sign an executive order to help solve this problem, because he does not want to imitate Trump’s abuse of executive powers. i’m mad He must get out his pen and do something right now!’
Moreover, another user hinted that it was time to change the government, which could do nothing after 19 children were slaughtered.
This is how it goes. Trump abused the executive order. Now Biden won’t use EO because he doesn’t want to imitate Trump. The next Republican president will abuse EO. The next Dem press won’t because it doesn’t emulate Repubs.
So who is always in power?
