Biden to unveil actions on guns

President Joe Biden will unveil a series of executive actions aimed at addressing gun violence on Thursday, delivering his first major action on gun control since taking office.

He'll also nominate David Chipman, a former federal agent and adviser at the gun control group Giffords, to be director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, according to senior Biden administration officials.

Biden has faced increasing pressure to act on gun control after a spate of mass shootings across the U.S. in recent weeks, but the White House has repeatedly emphasized the need for legislative action on guns. While the House passed a background-check bill last month, gun control measures face slim prospects in an evenly-divided Senate, where Republicans remain near-unified against most proposals.

Biden will be joined by Attorney General Merrick Garland at the event, and most of the actions will come from the Justice Department.

Biden is expected to announce tighter regulations requiring buyers of so-called “ghost guns” to undergo background checks. The homemade firearms — often assembled from parts and milled with a metal-cutting machine — often lack serial numbers used to trace them. It’s legal to build a gun in a home or a workshop and there is no federal requirement for a background check.

Nothing that Biden has to say will have any impact whatsoever on Gun Violence.  The persons who commit gun violence couldn't give a rat's patoot about Biden's executive actions.

True.  Or anyone else's actions or laws for that matter.

As a professional design engineer for over 20 years, I came up with a lot of ideas that never got put down on paper.  Some (including a heat exchanger for an exhaust fan) I have seen actually come to market, a decade after I got the idea. Another was a variant on the Wankel engine that did not have the wobbly rotor. 

But the one that plays into this scenario was a way to convert a standard microwave kitchen oven into a focused beam weapon.  the only drawback to using it was it would need a large power source.  Never figured out how to make that easily portable.

That was just plain weird. What does any of that have to do with Biden's actions against the second amendment?

Sadly they are going to happen over and over again. It is not the guns but it is the people themselves. Whether mentally ill or those with criminal records that are not allow to have guns. For those who give those people with criminal records guns. As that they could be charge with aiding and abetting there. Still it needs to stop. Should had stopped with Columbine in 1999. But sadly that has not been the case. As twenty one years way too much. Should be putting mass shootings in the form of domestic terrorism which it is and should be a federal crime IMHO.

People who lose loved ones to violence. Sentence to their own prison. Without parole but instead of bars. They are sentence to misery and grief. Forever their lives changed. ::frown:: ::cryingtears::

Jean, no one really thinks it is good to give guns to the mentally ill.  But the question is really who is going to determine who are the mentally ill who should not have guns.  We learned long ago, and nothing really has changed, that we really can't trust anyone with that assignment.

And as far as giving guns to those with criminal records, nothing being proposed now or in the past will have much if any effect on that.  Laws imposed upon law abiding citizens will do nothing to keep guns away from law breaking criminals.  They don't pay any attention to the laws anyway.  Not paying attention to a few more won't bother them in the least.

We'll just have the doctors test your DNA against an ideal strain to see where you are deficient.

Gattaca, anyone?
