US President Joe Biden announced the official establishment of the first federal unit to prevent gun violence in his country, to find solutions to prevent shootings and to support victims of attacks.

Speaking at the White House press conference, Biden announced that US Vice President Kamala Harris was appointed as the President of the Office to Prevent Armed Violence, which was established to prevent gun violence and attacks and to support victims of attacks.

Noting that more than 500 mass shootings have been organized in his country since the beginning of the year and more than 30 thousand people have lost their lives due to gun violence, Biden described these attacks as "a hurricane that devastates society".

The new unit aims to ensure that the gun safety law passed last year and the Biden administration's decisions to prevent gun violence are actually put into effect across the country. The unit is also planned to coordinate state support for families affected by mass shootings and gun violence in the states.

In the US, the country with the highest number of mass shootings in the world, the Gun Violence Archive reported that there were approximately 645 mass shootings in 2022 and 690 mass shootings in 2021.
