An 18-year-old boy killed 19 children in gunfire in the United States.

According to the state sen, three other adults were among the dead.

US President Joe Biden on Tuesday night called for new gun restrictions on firearms after a gunman killed 18 children at a school.

Biden had tried to pass the bill several times before but failed "We have to take action," he told the country.

The President had been meeting with the victims' families after a shooter killed ten black people in a grocery store just two days earlier.

The gunman had previously killed his grandmother with two military guns he bought on his birthday.
