According to White House press secretary Jen Psaki, President Joe Biden will be signing an executive order on gun control soon.
She told reporters on Friday, “I can’t give you an exact time frame, in part, because they have to go through a review process, which is something that we do from here.”
“I will note that when we, when the president was the vice president in the Obama-Biden administration, he helped put in place 23 executive actions to combat gun violence,” Psaki added. “It’s one of the levers that we can use that any federal government, any president, can use to help address the prevalence of gun violence and address community safety around the country.”
One thing is for sure: if Biden tries to implement a gun ban or mandated gun buyback, he he will have a literal civil war on his hands. So he should choose wisely when it comes to executive orders.
On Thursday, during the president’s first news conference, he hinted at taking action but pivoted to his infrastructure agenda items.
Earlier this week, Vice President Kamala Harris indicated that Congress should pass gun control legislation but stopped short of saying Biden would issue an executive order.
“It is time for Congress to act,” the vice president said in an interview with CBS News on Wednesday. “It’s simply about saying we need reasonable gun safety laws. There is no reason why we have assault weapons on the streets of a civil society. They are weapons of war. They are designed to kill a lot of people quickly,” she added.
But gun rights organizations such as the National Rifle Association and Gun Owners for America have raised red flags about Biden’s proposals, arguing they would violate the Constitution’s Second Amendment.
“In an apocalyptic environment where the filibuster has been eradicated, you can expect to see a Democrat Congress ramming through gun bans, gun owner registration, and more,” Gun Owners for America said days after Biden’s inauguration.
