President Biden compels the Second Amendment by signing his long-waited gun control executive orders

116

Today President Joe Biden is going to sign a series of gun control initial set of actions aimed to fight gun violence.

According to the White House officials, the president will sign several executive orders aimed to restrict the Second Amendment rights and for this purpose he will assign gun-control activist, David Chipman to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

"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," the White House said in a statement.

Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is a law enforcement agency within the Department of Justice. it strives to safeguard the public from criminal organizations and activity, including the illegal use and trafficking of firearms. Chipman, who "currently serves as senior policy adviser at Giffords and who is a gun owner himself, said that he supports any gun control actions but is not going to take away the firearms from the law-abiding citizens.

“The president will not wait for Congress to act before the administration takes our own steps — solely within the administration’s authority and the Second Amendment — to save lives,” a senior administration official told reporters Wednesday evening.

Department of Justice will have to issue the rules to stop the proliferation of “ghost guns” within 30 days, and it will have 60 days more to develop “red flag” bill. According to this bill, the friends and families will be able to identify as a potential danger. This measure must somehow prevent the person from accessing a firearm.

Ghost guns are the type of the homemade or makeshift firearms that don’t have a commercial serial number and are difficult to track down.

Additional actions and restrictions are suggested in the wake of the recent mass shootings.

“Other executive actions remain unclear,” Politico reported. “But advocates who have been in touch with the White House have speculated that the president could announce regulations on concealed assault-style firearms; prohibitions on firearm purchases for those convicted of domestic violence against their partners; alerts to law enforcement agencies when a potential buyer fails a background check; and federal guidance on home storage safety measures.”
