President Biden will announce gun control measures on Thursday that an administration official described as an initial set of actions aimed at addressing all forms of gun violence.
The president will detail several initiatives to be achieved through a mix of executive and legislative action, the official told reporters.
Biden will call on the Department of Justice to issue proposed rules to stop the proliferation of so-called “ghost guns” within 30 days. Ghost guns refer to kits that allow the recipient to assemble the firearm using provided parts. These guns do not have commercial serial numbers and are difficult to track.
The Justice Department will be given 60 days to issue a separate rule on stabilizing braces, which can turn a pistol into a more accurate weapon that fires like a rifle. Sixty days will also be provided for the DOJ to develop model “red flag” legislation that would allow friends and family members to identify an individual as a potential danger, thereby temporarily preventing the person from accessing a firearm.
The president will also highlight the steps his administration is taking to invest in community violence interventions and call on the DOJ to issue a firearms trafficking report.
The administration official said while Biden will call on Congress to act – including on closing loopholes in the background check system – he will not wait.
“Gun violence takes lives and leaves a lasting legacy of trauma in communities every single day in this country, even when it is not on the nightly news,” the White House said in a statement.
The administration official told reporters on Wednesday that Biden is concerned about all forms of gun violence, not only mass shootings but also domestic violence and forms of community violence that disproportionately affect Black and Brown communities.
Biden’s actions follow three recent mass shootings, and the administration official suggested there could be additional actions in the weeks and months to come.
Chipman, who is a gun owner himself, has said he backs regulations that save lives but do not take firearms away from law-abiding citizens.
The administration official confirmed on Wednesday night that Chipman was selected to enforce gun laws while also respecting Second Amendment rights.
ATF is a law enforcement agency within the Department of Justice that strives to safeguard the public from criminal organizations and activity, including the illegal use and trafficking of firearms.
During the Democratic Primary Candidates Debates last year, Candidate Joe Biden said,
“150 million people have been killed since 2007 when Bernie (Sanders) voted to exempt the gun manufacturers from liability, more than all the wars, including Vietnam from that point on.”
The heavily inflated figure misrepresented gun deaths in America since 2007. From 2007 to 2017, the number of firearm deaths in the U.S. was 373,663. This number includes both violent firearm deaths and unintentional or accidental deaths, according to the Center for American Progress, an organization that promotes progressive values.
More in line with Biden’s figures, an analysis of FBI statistics by the Center found that from 2008 through 2017, more than 1.5 million aggravated assaults involved a firearm, with rates varying significantly across the states.
“If I’m elected, NRA [the National Rifle Association], I’m coming for you and gun manufacturers, I’m gonna take you on and I’m gonna beat you,” Biden said.
For years, Democrat politicians like the Dummy From Delaware have been on a crusade to pass stricter and stricter gun control laws, literally foaming at the mouth to take the right to own guns, guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, away from average law-abiding Americans.
I have always wondered why they have never attempted to get tough with those who break our laws by committing gun violence, instead of trying to take away our Constitutional Right to be able to defend ourselves.
Was it just naiveté on the part of Democrats …or something else?
And then…the Democrats built a wall around our nation’s Capitol.
And, I wondered no more.
Today’s Democrat Elite have allowed their own arrogance to blossom into totalitarianism.
Their zeal to radically change our Constitutional Republic into just another Democratic Socialist failure of a country, like those in Europe and South America, has led them to no longer wish to hear any other political opinions except their own.
The Democrats, led by the Biden-Harris Administration, through their push for continued lockdowns, expanded “Unemployment” payments, flooding our Southern Border with illegal aliens, and now, attempting to abridge our Second Amendment Rights, are employing a political strategy designed to turn America into a country whose people have restricted liberty given to them by an all-powerful Central Government, instead of by “Our Creator”.
Sure, Sleepy Joe is going to tell us today that this is not an abridgement of our Second Amendment Rights.
And, Germany’s National Socialist Party told the European Jews that they were simply going to be “relocated”.
The name of the game, boys and girls, is ‘CONTROL”.
Give the Democrats an inch and they will take a mile.
Those who have come before us did not give up their lives on the field of battle while preserving our liberty for us to willingly give it away to a demented doddering old fool issuing Executive Orders written by his Handlers.
Those whom we have elected to represent us in Washington MUST fight for our American Freedoms.
Or, we need to boot them out and replace them with those who will.
