During a speech Biden said, "gun violence is ripping our communities apart, ripping the soul of this nation, ripping at the very soul of the nation. And we have to do more to protect our schools so they aren't turned into prisons. You know, the shooter in this situation reportedly had two assault weapons and a pistol. Two AK-47s."
"So I call on Congress again to pass my assault weapons ban. It's about time that we began to make some more progress," he added.
Biden previously described the shooting as "sick" and "It's heartbreaking, a family's worst nightmare."
He later added that families dealing with school shootings was "just like when in the military, my son was in Iraq for a year."
"There's so many members of the military coming back with post traumatic stress after witnessing the violence and participating in these children. These teachers should be focusing on their mental health as well," he added.
The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department has revealed that the deceased suspect was a 28-year-old former student, not a teenager as earlier reports had suggested.
The 28-year-old was shot and killed in an encounter with police and once officer of the force received injuries from cut glass. Two officers out of a police squad of five engaged the suspect.
Nashville Police Public Affairs Director Don Aaron said during a press briefing that they are working to identify the suspect and emphasized there were no Metro Police personnel assigned to the private school operated by the church.
Aaron said during a press briefing, 'We do not know who she is at this juncture, we are trying to identify her."
"This is a church that operates a private school. There were no Metro Police personnel assigned to that school of any kind," he added.
