Biden to Use Executive Action to Secure Gun Control Congress Won’t Pass by AWR HAWKINS

The Hill reported the order will address a category of gun sellers “who do not realize they are required to run background checks under existing law, or who are willfully violating existing law, become compliant with background check requirements.” This will move the U.S. closer to the universal background check system that Democrats have wanted, but which Congress as a whole has refused to pass.

The order will also direct members of his Cabinet to work with local law enforcement, members of the health care community, and others, to increase the use of “red flag laws.” Such laws allow guns to be seized from gun owners via a judge’s order.

Forbes notes the executive order “also directs the attorney general to develop a plan to prevent firearms dealers whose federal licenses have been revoked from continuing to sell guns.”

oreover, the order also calls for the “[modernization] of the Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988, which is set to expire in December, to make it harder for firearms to be made that can evade metal detectors.” This portion of the order is directed at that category of firearms that are 3-D printed; firearms which Democrats refer to as “ghost guns.”

He will also ask the Federal Trade Commission to investigate methods by which the gun industry allegedly markets to minors.

Biden will sign his executive order Tuesday in Monterey Park, California, the location of a January 21, 2023, shooting in which a 72-year-old attacker used a pistol to kill 11 people.

On April 8, 2021, Biden issued executive gun controls during a Rose Garden speech and those resulted in the ATF’s frame/receiver rule, which describes an unfinished pistol frame or rifle lower as a firearm.

  1. Say gun control one more time , because this is how close we are to a revolution in this country / or even some civil thrown in there for good measure and hanging corrupted politicians in front of the white house ( not capitalized for a reason )

    The surveillance state isn’t about finding Terrorist
    It’s about protecting the “scum elites “ from us
    Militarizing of the police isn’t to protect us and property , it’s to keep us away from the “ scum elites”
    Gun control isn’t about protecting people stopping crime or children , it’s about protecting the scum elites from you, because if you knew what you should about them ,.. this kind of shit would definitely be on like no war you ever knew
