Biden to announce executive actions on guns, name ATF nominee

Report: Biden Is Planning a Big Announcement on Guns

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. And neither will House Republicans.

"You will continue to hear the president call for Congress to pass legislation to reduce gun violence". It is now run by Acting Director Regina Lombardo. Chipman, who spent some two decades as an ATF agent, is now a senior policy advisor to Giffords, the advocacy group set up by former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona after she was shot and severely wounded at a campaign event.

Chipman's extensive contacts with the groups that advocate greater regulation of firearms could assuage some of the complaints that the administration has been slow to move on gun issues.

He also is an explosives expert and was among the team involved in investigating the Oklahoma City Bombing and the first World Trade Center bombing. He retired from the ATF in 2012.

Such programs have had a significant impact in reducing homicides where they've been tried, White House officials said.

Several mainstream outlets reported that Biden has faced "increasing pressure" to implement gun control measures after recent mass shootings, but the president vowed long before taking office that he would take action on firearms once in the White House. But gun-control advocates have said that while they were heartened by signs from the White House that they took the issue seriously, they've been disappointed by the lack of early action.

Biden backed an assault weapons ban in 1994 when he was a senator.

"Each of these executive actions will start to address the epidemic of gun violence that has raged throughout the pandemic, and begin to make good on President Biden's promise to be the strongest gun safety president in history", said John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety.

A semi-automatic resembling the iconic U.S. military M16 rifle, the AR-15 has become reviled by many as the weapon of choice in a string of mass murders.

This new decree from an administration already infamous for both its disdain for American gun owners and its willingness to skirt the legislative process, could seek to force law-abiding firearm parts and non-firearm objects to be subject to federal firearms laws, and buyers of these parts to be treated as firearm purchasers.

The number of such sales has grown rapidly in recent years, and ghost guns have increasingly been showing up at crime scenes.

"I don't have anything to preview, but I can convey the president will have more to say tomorrow", said Psaki.

The critical component in building an untraceable gun is what is known as the lower receiver, a part typically made of metal or polymer.

FPC is proud to stand for the People in opposition to such ruthless attempts to crush your right to bear arms, regardless of the party or politician proposing them, and we look forward to defeating the Biden Administration's latest foolhardy attempts to restrict the natural rights that this nation was founded upon.
