In less than a week, the United States has seen two deadly mass shootings: one in Boulder, Colo., and another in the Atlanta area.
These events prompted President Biden to address the nation on Tuesday. In his speech, he said it was time to ban assault weapons.

Guest: Sheryl Gay Stolberg, a Washington correspondent for The New York Times.
