US President Biden announced a series of measures to reduce gun violence in the United States. He called this the first step to limit mass shootings and suicides.
The Ministry of Justice will crack down on unregistered self-made “ghost weapons.” Thereafter, stable brackets that can effectively turn the pistol into a rifle must be used in accordance with the provisions of the National Firearms Law. It is expected to make recommendations on this within two months. The federal government is also working on a proposal to tighten the definition of guns to prevent the proliferation of ghost weapons.
Biden told a group of relatives in a major shooting: “No one should have an automatic weapon that can fire a hundred rounds. No one needs it.”
The weapon crisis is also a health crisis
Biden said that he will ask the ATF inspection agency to issue an annual report on US arms trafficking.The country must also become easier to use Red flag law A law that can require judges to temporarily take weapons from people who may pose a threat to themselves or others.
Biden said that this is not only a weapons crisis, but also a health crisis we are dealing with. “Gun violence is an epidemic that must be stopped, and it has flaws on the badge of the United States.”
After the recent shootings in Colorado and Georgia, Biden’s pressure to act has increased. Five more people were shot dead in South Carolina today. His plan also focuses on assistance to surviving relatives. Most deaths caused by gun violence are suicides.
Strong Gun Hall
Biden introduced his plan with Vice President Harris and Attorney General Garland. Garland pointed out that modern weapons are no longer just forged or forged, but can also be printed on 3D printers or sold in kits. Garland said that these weapons should also be included in the gun law, which also makes it necessary to serialize individual parts.
In the United States, gun lobbying organizations are strong, and the right to carry guns is protected. The lobby group has successfully challenged several attempts in court to limit who can carry weapons.
The lobby group NRA talked about the circus and said it was time to fight:
The president’s power to deal with weapons is limited. Legislation is usually on gun owners. For example, the arms industry is the only industry that cannot be prosecuted. Biden hopes that this immunity will be removed.
