President Joe Biden will renew the gun control push at the federal level during his Wednesday speech on crime.
The Associated Press reports that Biden’s speech will contain a mix of new executive orders and renewed calls for “Congress to pass gun legislation.”
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters that although the focus of the speech will be on crime, guns will also be a “big part” of it.
She said that Biden is focused on “putting in place gun safety measures … using the bully pulpit but also using levers at his disposal as president.”
On April 8, 2021, Biden issued numerous executive gun controls, many of which directed his Department of Justice (DOJ) to take action regarding red flag laws, “ghost guns,” and AR-pistols with stabilizer braces, among other things.
