Democrat President Joe Biden announced on Wednesday evening the administration’s new far-left Executive Order aimed at cracking down on the Second Amendment, and the hiring of a new director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms who comes from an anti-Second Amendment group.
In a statement, Biden outlined the following “initial actions” in his attack on gun rights:
- The Justice Department, within 30 days, will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of “ghost guns.”
- The Justice Department, within 60 days, will issue a proposed rule to make clear when a device marketed as a stabilizing brace effectively turns a pistol into a short-barreled rifle subject to the requirements of the National Firearms Act.
- The Justice Department, within 60 days, will publish model “red flag” legislation for states.
Biden also said his administration was “investing in evidence-based community violence interventions” in “urban communities.” Biden admitted that cities across the country, which are largely run by Democrats, are seeing a historic spike in homicides, which follows the push by some Democrats and far-left activists to “defund the police.” The statement said that that Department of Justice would release an annual report on firearm trafficking.
Finally, Biden announced that he will nominate David Chipman to serve as Director of the ATF. Chipman worked at Giffords, which advocates for gun bans. CNN called Chipman a “fierce advocate for gun control.” Chipman locked his Twitter account so people cannot see what he has stated publicly, however, a comparison of online archives to his current account appears to show that he has deleted well over 1,000 tweets.
