Welcome to Friday, April 9th, social butterflies and asocial caterpillars...
President Joe Biden on Thursday announced a series of executive actions on gun control.
They include orders aimed at restricting so-called “ghost guns” and stabilizing braces for handguns.
He also signaled a renewed push by his administration for “red flag” laws and formally announced his pick to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF).
In remarks at an event in the White House Rose Garden announcing the executive actions, Biden said his administration is “taking steps to confront not just the gun crisis, but what is actually a public health crisis.”
Biden’s executive actions are likely to draw legal challenges from gun rights advocates as has been the case in other recent instances of firearm regulations. There is ongoing litigation in federal courts regarding the ban on “bump stocks” the Trump administration implemented through executive action after the Las Vegas mass shooting.
