On Thursday, April 8, 2021, President Joe Biden announced executive orders on gun control. The announcement came after mass shootings in Atlanta, Georgia, and Boulder, Colorado, resulting in 18 deaths. President Biden said, “Gun violence in this country is an epidemic and is an international embarrassment.” The White House also detailed how it would instruct the Department of Justice to curb the access to guns by:
- Measuring the problem of gun trafficking in a data driven way is needed
- Closing the regulatory loopholes that had contributed to the proliferation of ghost guns (threatens law enforcement objectives of being able to trace through serial # of guns after criminal use or background checks)
- Statutory restrictions on short barrel rifles apply when certain stabilizing braces are added to high power pistols. Federal laws require taxations and registrations of all short barrel rifles because these weapons are powerful and yet easily concealable. Currently some manufacturers market and some individuals purchase certain kind of stabilizing braces that when attached to a pistol, becomes a short barrel rifle, a weapon intended to be fired from the shoulder.
- Biden also asked the Department of Justice to publish red flag laws (aka extreme risk protection law) as a guide for states. These laws allow police of family members to temporarily block people from obtaining firearms if they present a danger to themselves or to others.
- President Biden also announced that he is nominating David Chipman to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Chipman would be the agency’s first permanent director since 2015.
- President Biden said that cooperation from Congress is crucial to getting the job done.
- Biden called on Congress to pass House legislation that would strengthen background checks and called for a ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines
