WH: Biden wants to get assault weapons ban done

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre stated on Wednesday that United States President Joe Biden wants Congress to pass the assault weapons ban and will continue pushing for the legislation.

Jean-Pierre insisted Biden wants to "get it done" and will "never stop speaking up" on banning assault weapons. Still, she refused to comment on whether Biden started counting to see if he has enough votes in Congress to pass the bill during the current lame-duck session before Republicans retake control of the House of Representatives in January.

The White House spokesperson made the comments ahead of Biden's appearance at a vigil for victims of gun violence.
