President Biden to speak about his Safer America Plan to reduce gun violence

Biden's addressing public safety today during a week of high-profile crimes news that includes gangs targeting celebrities.

Gun violence and public safety are in the limelight today. The White House says the President will address those issues while visiting Pennsylvania. The trip comes during a week of high-profile crime news.

Biden is ready to talk up his crime prevention plans. The White House said Biden will use his visit today to call out Republicans for opposing his proposal to restore a ban on assault-style weapons.

Both parties worked together in a rare effort to pass bipartisan gun safety legislation earlier this year after massacres in Buffalo, New York, and Uvalde, Texas, but Biden has repeatedly said more needs to be done.

President Biden's Safer America Plan includes an assault weapon ban. He's pushing it after a string of high-profile crime news this week.

Atlanta officials say 26 alleged gang members have been arrested. They're charged with crimes targeting wealthy people, including some pro athletes and celebrities. New York police say they're charging a juvenile with spraying two Jewish men with fire extinguishers, and in central Oregon, a grocery store employee is being credited with saving lives. He died trying to disarm a shooter, who also killed a customer.
