Law enforcement stands by the makeshift memorial President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden visited this morning in Buffalo, NY, outside the Tops Friendly Market.

President Joe Biden visited a makeshift memorial outside of the Tops Friendly Market in Buffalo, New York this morning, before a private meeting with survivors and families of the 10 people killed in a mass shooting on Saturday.

Biden is expected to speak about the dangerous racist ideology that authorities believe motivated the shooter, and call on Congress to pass gun control legislation. Although the suspect was referred by police for a psychiatric evaluation after threatening his high school, he was able to buy a gun and according to the gun seller passed a background check.
