The White House said the Bidens would “grieve with the community that lost 21 lives in the horrific” shooting at Robb Elementary School.

Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said the president would meet with the community and religious leaders and victims’ families.

Jean-Pierre, the parent of an elementary school student, delivered an impassioned plea at the White House for lawmakers to come together to address gun violence.

“These were elementary school kids, they should be losing their first teeth not losing their lives,” she said.

Jean-Pierre echoed Biden, who in remarks Tuesday evening, spoke from personal experience about the pain of losing a child, and called on the country to tighten gun laws in response to the shooting.
