Biden to announce new executive actions on guns
Biden has been considering requiring background checks on so-called ghost guns along with other measures that would strengthen existing gun laws.

The extent of Thursday's announcement, which was first reported by Politico, wasn't immediately clear, and the White House did not elaborate.
"I expect the President will have more to say tomorrow," press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters during a daily briefing Wednesday.

You mean Obama's method. Trump just took Obama's methods and ran.
Who cares, Republicans and Democrats are not friends of the 2nd amendment and need to be treated accordingly. They both work equally to deminish our rights while blaming the other party, meanwhile the people sit back quietly whistling dixie letting it happen because it just so happens to be their boy in the White House writing the EO. That needs to stop. All politicians who advocates one ounce of gun control needs to be put on notice.

Who gives a s**** who did what first... that plays right into their hands.

The Justice Department will issue a proposed rule aimed at reining in ghost guns within 30 days, though details of the rule weren't immediately issued.

A second proposed rule, expected within 60 days, will tighten regulations on pistol-stabilizing braces, like the one used by the Boulder, Colorado, shooter in a rampage last month that left 10 dead. The rule will designate pistols used with stabilizing braces as short-barreled rifles, which require a federal license to own and are subject to a more thorough application process and a $200 tax.

The department also is publishing model legislation within 60 days that is intended to make it easier for states to adopt their own "red flag" laws. Such laws allow for individuals to petition a court to allow the police to confiscate weapons from a person deemed to be a danger to themselves or others.

The department also will begin to provide more data on firearms trafficking, starting with a new comprehensive report on the issue. The administration says that hasn't been done in more than two decades.


Biden is also nominating David Chipman, a former federal agent and adviser at the gun control group Giffords, to be director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The Biden administration will also make investments in community violence intervention programs, which are aimed at reducing gun violence in urban communities, across five federal agencies.

Officials said the executive actions were "initial steps" completed during Garland's first weeks on the job and more may be coming.

Banning something that no one gives a rat's rump about anyway?
So that makes it right? It opened up precedence for Biden to do what he is doing right now for braces. Thats what it did.
So don't blow off bump stocks because "no one gives a rats rump about". Thats exactly the argument they used to defend Reagan when he signed the 1986 full auto ban, "they're just a waste of ammo and inaccurate anyways"...

Stop excusing your boy (both sides)

Banning an accessory opens the door to banning other accessories.

Sights that allow you to "shoot with the accuracy of a trained assassin" leap to mind. You own a red-dot?

How about tritium "night sights". Probably absurd, but we're in clown world already. Do they make your gun "unreasonably" dangerous?

How about an Apex trigger for your Glock? A device that some people consider vital to turn the gun into a useable defensive tool, given the Glock standard trigger. If it makes you more "deadly", who knows what will be demonized yet?

Explain how a brace on an AR15 pistol makes it unreasonably dangerous? The President said they can be shot more accurately than without the brace. Is it more "dangerous" than a standard AR15 pattern rifle? More accurate?

With MILLIONS of these pistol braces out there, how long are ATF backlogs going to be when all of these folks register them at once as SBRs and put actual rifle stocks on them (I guess making them even more accurate and therefore even more unreasonably dangerous?).

Well, at the moment, you aren't allowed in my state to own an AR15 rifle post-AWB or an SBR of any kind, but you can own an AR pistol. If the law changes and the feds demand that pistols are registered as SBRs, that's a bit of a problem for those formerly law-abiding people.

I own an AR-15 'Other' which I expect is another example of a category of firearms that falls thru' a "loophole" due to stupid legislators ( for which I am grateful).

He also said the 94 AWB decreased gun violence, which is blantantly false. It's not about facts, it's about agenda. Both sides already know all the data. They dont want a solution, they want to ban guns by any means neccessary.

At that point there's no reasoning with them. You just have to say, come and take em.

EET: Biden-Harris Administration Announces Initial Actions to Address the Gun Violence Public Health Epidemic
April 07, 2021 • Statements and Releases






Today, the Biden-Harris Administration is announcing six initial actions to address the gun violence public health epidemic. The recent high-profile mass shootings in Boulder – taking the lives of 10 individuals – and Atlanta – taking the lives of eight individuals, including six Asian American women – underscored the relentlessness of this epidemic. 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. In fact, cities across the country are in the midst of a historic spike in homicides, violence that disproportionately impacts Black and brown Americans. The President is committed to taking action to reduce all forms of gun violence – community violence, mass shootings, domestic violence, and suicide by firearm.

President Biden is reiterating his call for Congress to pass legislation to reduce gun violence. Last month, a bipartisan coalition in the House passed two bills to close loopholes in the gun background check system. Congress should close those loopholes and go further, including by closing “boyfriend” and stalking loopholes that currently allow people found by the courts to be abusers to possess firearms, banning assault weapons and high capacity magazines, repealing gun manufacturers’ immunity from liability, and investing in evidence-based community violence interventions. Congress should also pass an appropriate national “red flag” law, as well as legislation incentivizing states to pass “red flag” laws of their own.

But this Administration will not wait for Congress to act to take its own steps – fully within the Administration’s authority and the Second Amendment – to save lives. Today, the Administration is announcing the following six initial actions:

The Justice Department, within 30 days, will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of “ghost guns.” We are experiencing a growing problem: criminals are buying kits containing nearly all of the components and directions for finishing a firearm within as little as 30 minutes and using these firearms to commit crimes. When these firearms turn up at crime scenes, they often cannot be traced by law enforcement due to the lack of a serial number. The Justice Department will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of these firearms.

The Justice Department, within 60 days, will issue a proposed rule to make clear when a device marketed as a stabilizing brace effectively turns a pistol into a short-barreled rifle subject to the requirements of the National Firearms Act. The alleged shooter in the Boulder tragedy last month appears to have used a pistol with an arm brace, which can make a firearm more stable and accurate while still being concealable.

The Justice Department, within 60 days, will publish model “red flag” legislation for states. Red flag laws allow family members or law enforcement to petition for a court order temporarily barring people in crisis from accessing firearms if they present a danger to themselves or others. The President urges Congress to pass an appropriate national “red flag” law, as well as legislation incentivizing states to pass “red flag” laws of their own. In the interim, the Justice Department’s published model legislation will make it easier for states that want to adopt red flag laws to do so.

The Administration is investing in evidence-based community violence interventions. Community violence interventions are proven strategies for reducing gun violence in urban communities through tools other than incarceration. Because cities across the country are experiencing a historic spike in homicides, the Biden-Harris Administration is taking a number of steps to prioritize investment in community violence interventions.
  • The American Jobs Plan proposes a $5 billion investment over eight years to support community violence intervention programs. A key part of community violence intervention strategies is to help connect individuals to job training and job opportunities.
  • The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is organizing a webinar and toolkit to educate states on how they can use Medicaid to reimburse certain community violence intervention programs, like Hospital-Based Violence Interventions.
  • Five federal agencies are making changes to 26 different programs to direct vital support to community violence intervention programs as quickly as possible. These changes mean we can start increasing investments in community violence interventions as we wait on Congress to appropriate additional funds. Read more about these agency actions here.
The Justice Department will issue an annual report on firearms trafficking. In 2000, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) issued a report summarizing information regarding its investigations into firearms trafficking, which is one way firearms are diverted into the illegal market where they can easily end up in the hands of dangerous individuals. Since the report’s publication, states, local, and federal policymakers have relied on its data to better thwart the common channels of firearms trafficking. But there is good reason to believe that firearms trafficking channels have changed since 2000, for example due to the emergence of online sales and proliferation of “ghost guns.” The Justice Department will issue a new, comprehensive report on firearms trafficking and annual updates necessary to give policymakers the information they need to help address firearms trafficking today.
The President will nominate David Chipman to serve as Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. ATF is the key agency enforcing our gun laws, and it needs a confirmed director in order to do the job to the best of its ability. But ATF has not had a confirmed director since 2015. Chipman served at ATF for 25 years and now works to advance commonsense gun safety laws.
