The father of a teenager killed in the 2018 mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, interrupted President Joe Biden on Monday during an event at the White House marking new legislation targeting gun violence.
The legislation, which Biden signed into law last month, expands gun background checks for people between the ages of 18 to 21, seeks to close the “boyfriend loophole” so people convicted of assaulting a dating partner cannot buy firearms and more.
Biden hosted hundreds of people at the White House, including bipartisan lawmakers and the families of victims of gun violence, to mark the new law. But during his remarks, the president was interrupted by Manuel Oliver, whose son Joaquin was one of 17 people killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.
