US President Joe Biden says the increasing gun violence in America is a an "epidemic and an international embarrassment."

He announced a half-dozen executive actions today aimed at addressing the issue, including tightening regulations on "ghost guns."

Biden emphasized the scope of the problem.

But there are limitations to Biden's executive power, and he is calling on the Senate to take up House-passed measures closing background check loopholes.

He said between the mass killings in Atlanta massage businesses and the Colorado grocery store shooting last month, there were more than 850 additional shootings that killed 250 and injured 500.
