STORY: Biden, who visited with families of the shooting victims in Uvalde, Texas, on Sunday, said he thought he had been to more mass shooting aftermaths than any other U.S. president.
Ardern expressed condolences for victims of the shootings in Texas and a May 14 shooting in Buffalo that killed 10 people.
"It's been devastating to see the impact on those communities," she said. Ardern added that she would be glad to share anything about the work New Zealand was doing on guns if it could be valuable. Biden called what the country was doing with technology companies "important."
After a 2019 massacre in Christchurch, New Zealand, in which a lone gunman killed 51 Muslims, Ardern delivered a ban on semiautomatic firearms and other gun curbs, a stark contrast to the United States, where lawmakers and activists have struggled to address gun violence despite numerous mass shootings.
