BREAKING: White House Releases Initial Gun Control Executive Actions
Townhall.com ^ | 7 April A.D. 2021 | Katie Pavlich

The Biden White House has released a preview of President Joe Biden's executive actions on gun control, which he plans to sign Thursday afternoon. The administration is also arguing additional gun control is needed to fight a "public health" crisis and pushing hard for "red flag laws," which often violate civil liberties.

"Today, the Biden-Harris Administration is announcing six initial actions to address the gun violence public health epidemic," the White House released late Wednesday. "This Administration will not wait for Congress to act to take its own steps."

Here are the six actions, from the White House "fact sheet."

The Justice Department, within 30 days, will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of “ghost guns.”

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 Justice Department, within 60 days, will publish model “red flag” legislation for states.

The Administration is investing in evidence-based community violence interventions.

The Justice Department will issue an annual report on firearms trafficking.

The President will nominate David Chipman to serve as Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.

Biden's choice for ATF Director, David Chipman, is a longtime gun control activist who has done extensive lobbying for anti-Second Amendment groups funded by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the Giffords Law Center. He was also involved in the Branch Davidian trial after the government -- specifically ATF and FBI -- botched a raid in Waco, Texas. Bad decisions made by federal agents ultimately resulted in the deaths of 76 people, including pregnant women and dozens of children.

Stroke of the pen, law of the land. Just like our founding fathers envisioned. King Biden.

The practice of eo’s as law is a fundamental problem you need to be against per separation of powers

Second you know its all about the interpretation of certain words and phrases

Third you know from their own internal leaked documents and taped meetings, their real goals is disarming all people, under the guise of incrementalism and more and more so-called “common sense” laws

Why are you still fooled by this stuff? Dont you know who you are dealing with?

“investing in evidence-based community violence interventions”

Funneling tax dollars to neo-Bolshevik agitators.

Making rules and pretending they are laws.

Good luck in court.

evidence-based community violence interventions

Does that mean if we see evidence of a violent person the community can shoot him?

Red Flag legislation, you had a Trump sign on your front lawn, no weapons for you. They are the enemy, but will we be victorious?

The issuance of proposed rules. Sounds like someone was in a hurry to get something out. Even if it was nothing.

Looks to me like they just signaled defeat. Lol
They haven’t done anything else small so far. Why this small?
It’s all bad of course but I’m thinking they know the math has changed.
I know many first time gun buyers.

They’ve now opened the floodgates to unlimited EOs to get their gun removal and confiscation agenda done, bypassing US Congress, where it’d be killed in the US Senate. Look for a lot of court challenges.

The Executive Proclamations themselves don’t sound like much, but his appointment of Chipman could be troublesome...
