Biden planning to act quickly on gun control


Washington ExaminerJoe Biden plans to move quickly against guns, adding the issue to his list of first executive orders, according to his top policy aide.

Stef Feldman, the national policy director of Biden's presidential campaign, included the Democrat’s gun plan in a list of initial executive actions set to be unleashed after Inauguration Day.

Speaking in a Zoom briefing hosted by Georgetown University’s Institute of Politics and Public Service, she said that Biden is planning to “make big, bold changes through executive action, not just on policing and climate like we talked about previously, but in healthcare and education on gun violence, on a range of issues.”

During the campaign, Biden won the endorsement of former candidate Beto O'Rourke, who famously promised to grab everyone's AR-15.

While he calls his plan one aimed at ending “gun violence,” most of Biden’s ideas amount to limiting what people can buy or have. For example, he wants to end the sale of AR-15-style firearms (the most popular in the nation), regulate those that people already have, and limit the size of magazines those guns use.

They think that the New York lawsuit has the NRA sidelined, and they are probably right. The BATFE and other agencies will be eager to help. Court challenges take time and money. Legislation is hard and can have political costs. So, Biden will issue executive orders and do as much damage as he can.
