This will be your first major control measure since you took office.
According to people familiar with the matter, President Joe Biden will announce a series of administrative actions against gun violence on Thursday, which will be his first major gun control operation since taking office.
Biden is expected to issue stricter regulations, which will force buyers of so-called “ghost guns” to undergo background checks. These hand-made guns are usually assembled by connecting parts and manufactured using metal cutting machines, often lacking serial numbers for tracking them. It is legal to manufacture guns in the home or workshop, and there is no federal background check requirement.
The presidential plan was proposed by a person familiar with the plan’s measures, and that person has no right to make a public statement about it.
The president also plans to appoint the head of the Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives Department (ATF). Activists say this position is critical to the implementation of US gun laws and the fight against weapon-derived violence. Attorney General Merrick Garland (Merrick Garland) will accompany Biden during the event.
Since 2015, ATF has lacked a confirmed permanent member. The agency is run by the current acting director Regina Lombardo (Regina Lombardo).
Although the White House has repeatedly emphasized that the legislature must take action to control guns, Biden has faced increasing pressure to act amidst the wave of shootings in the United States in recent weeks. Although the House of Representatives passed a background investigation initiative last month, gun control measures have little chance of advancing in the Senate, because both sides of the Senate have the same seats, and Republicans almost completely oppose most of the proposals.
