US Justice Department charged white supremacist Payton Gendron with federal hate crimes.
Gendron killed 10 people during a mass shooting inspired by racist conspiracy theories at Tops in Buffalo, New York.
On May 14, Gendron took an AR-15 rifle and stormed a supermarket in a color-based neighborhood.

Prosecutors estate that Gendron drove several hours to arrive at the pinned destination. He took the life of 10 African Americans.
Payton Gendron pleaded not guilty to state charges.
Attorney General Merrick Garland arrived at Buffalo, New York. He announced Gendron’s federal charges and met with the affected community and family victims.

After the recent tragedies, President Joe Biden and Democrats are pushing for gun control legislation.
