Since the horrifying mass shooting that occurred in Boulder, Colorado earlier this week, the left has been already talking about enacting further gun control measures, you know for the safety of Americans, and it looks like we are about to see it.
We’ve all been waiting for this to happen since Biden took office, and to be honest, I am surprised it took this long for them to broach the topic. Well, the wait appears to be over as press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed on Friday that the White House will begin to move on it soon enough.
When Psaki was asked if Biden would be taking action soon on the hotly contested issue of stripping away our God-given rights to defend ourselves, she replied, “Yes.”
“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,” Psaki told reporters at the White House.
“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,” she 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.”

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.
