NRA-ILA | Biden’s Executive Order Targeting Gun Ownership
On Tuesday, Joe Biden issued an executive order on gun control that could accurately be described as a mile wide and an inch deep.
Media and gun control groups that beforehand had been salivating over the idea that the measure would impose “universal background checks” for firearm transfers had to content themselves with a vague directive for Attorney General Merrick Garland to develop a “plan” to move in that direction.
And while the order’s other provisions were similarly vague and insubstantial, there is no doubt what it all adds up to: antagonism toward gun ownership is now the official policy of the U.S. government’s Executive Branch.
