More shootings and classified document findings in US week

More shootings and classified document findings in US week

Washington, Jan 28 (Prensa Latina) A wave of armed violence, which left at least three mass shootings in California, as well as the appearance of classified documents owned by former Vice President Mike Pence (2017-2021), marked the week that ends today in USA.

Seven people were killed and another injured in two related shootings in the California coastal town of Half Moon Bay on Monday.

Last weekend 11 people were killed and nine were injured in another mass shooting in Monterrey Park, also in California.

That state was also shocked on January 16, when four generations of a family, including a baby, were killed in a cartel-like execution.

Following the tragedies, US President Joe Biden insisted on a ban on assault weapons in the United States.

“We know that the scourge of firearm attacks requires more energetic action,” the president said in a statement, urging the Senate and the Lower House of Congress to act quickly for regulations that restrict these lethal devices.

“Take steps to keep American communities, schools, workplaces and homes safe,” said the President of a country that has more guns than citizens.

In the current week there were reports that a lawyer sent by Pence found about 12 documents considered sensitive at his home in Carmel, Indiana, and alerted the National Archives, which in turn alerted the Justice Department.

The search followed revelations in January about secret material discovered in Biden’s office, garage and private residence, dating from his time as vice president of the Barack Obama administration (2009-2017).

The finding came after Pence said, repeatedly, that he had no classified paper in his can.

The National Archives and Records Administration agency asked the former presidents and vice presidents of the last six administrations of the United States last Thursday to review their records in search of classified material that is still in their possession.

In August 2022, agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) searched Trump’s Florida mansion located in Mar-a-Lago and detected files marked as confidential and “top secret.”

The FBI works with other North American agencies in the evaluation of said materials and analyzes the repercussion that its storage in places considered unfortunate could have on national security.

In the opinion of analysts, these facts show the mismanagement of official government reports, since, according to the law, the head of state and the vice president, once removed from office, must deliver the reports to the National Archives for safe storage.

This northern nation has suffered 42 mass shootings so far in 2023 (those in which at least four people were shot, excluding the attacker), and more than 3,000 people died from firearms, the organization Gun Violence Archive said.
