The speech of the American president was devoted to the new measures of the administration aimed at reducing the scale of violence with the use of homemade unregistered firearms in the country.

One of the visitors to the White House held up a poster during a speech by American President Joe Biden on Monday criticizing the Pentagon’s excessive military spending and the use of American weapons abroad. This is reported by the White House press pool.

Biden’s speech was devoted to new measures of the American administration aimed at reducing the scale of violence with the use of homemade unregistered firearms in the United States. “American weapons lead to the greatest casualties abroad,” said the poster, which one of the visitors held up at the moment when the American leader finished his speech and went out to the assembled lawmakers and other guests of the White House to shake their hands.

As can be seen in the photo distributed by the White House press pool, the poster also had words about the “Biden budget” and a graph showing how much of it is occupied by military spending.

In April 2021, Biden called gun violence a real epidemic for the United States, which he intends to fight. The actions of the American president and his administration, in particular, are aimed at combating the proliferation of homemade weapons, components for which can be purchased online.
