White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said on Thursday that the plan unveiled by Democrat President Joe Biden to crack down on Second Amendment rights was only the beginning, and that Biden will take more actions.
“Today, the administration announced initial actions to address gun violence,” Psaki said. “There will be more. That is absolutely his commitment, and he also will use the power of his presidency, his voice, his political will to advocate for actions in Congress.”
The administration outlined the following “initial actions” that Biden will take 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.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) responded to the Biden administration’s new actions by writing that Republicans will pursue all avenues to protect Second Amendment rights.
“President Biden has ordered the DOJ to issue new rules that will surely result in unconstitutional overreach,” McCarthy said. “Republicans will strongly oppose and pursue every option—be it legislative or judicial—to protect the right to keep and bear arms from infringement by this Administration.”
