LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden returned to the Las Vegas valley on Sept. 27 for a campaign stop.

Biden laid out his vision for America and listen to voters’ concerns and ideas about restoring the soul of the nation. He is also expected to talk about rebuilding the middle class and unifying the country, according to a campaign spokesperson.

Biden called gun control an absolute emergency, saying no one understands that better than folks in Las Vegas.

“Gun violence is now the biggest fear factor of our children, they’re worried about being shot in school," says Biden.

“There’s only one guy who has beaten the NRA nationally, I’ve beaten them twice and i’m going to beat them again.”

The presidential candidate was the 47th vice president of the United States and has made the Silver State a frequent stop during his campaigns.
