The President of the United States proposed a package of measures to try to regulate arms sales. Armed violence is the cause of more than 40,000 deaths each year, more than half of which are suicides.
On Thursday, April 8th, Joe Biden announced the first measures aimed at better regulating the gun market, which have contributed to the scourge of mass killings. Twenty people were killed in two massacres in Georgia and Colorado in March, forcing the President of the United States to take action.
In his speech, Joe Biden assured him that none of his proposals undermined the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which protected the right to own weapons. « In this country, armed violence is an epidemic and an international embarrassment.”, He assured this before he recalled the murder statistics. « Enough, enough, enough, He added. Prayer is enough, we must start to act. “
Given the scale of the phenomenon that causes more than 40,000 deaths each year, the announced measures may seem trivial, with more than half of them being suicides. They are under the jurisdiction of Merrick Garland, the new US Attorney General (Attorney General).
Therefore, the latter must solve the “phantom weapon” phenomenon, which is purchased with spare parts and does not have a serial number, so it cannot be traced. Certain pistol changes (such as adding a stabilizer to make it more precise and therefore more lethal) will also be affected. The author of the Colorado Massacre adjusted his weapons accordingly.
The Ministry of Justice must also allow countries that wish to pass legislation to allow the temporary confiscation of guns if the holder poses a threat to him or his relatives. Joe Biden also commissioned Merrick Garland to prepare a report on arms trafficking, which has not been completed for two decades.
The President of the United States has tried to respond to the frustration of organizations that ban certain guns to better control guns, which are often used in mass killings, such as semi-automatic weapons. By appointing a figure from this movement to lead the federal agency responsible for them.
David Chipman is a former member of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Founded by former Democratic Congressman Gabrielle Gifford, he worked for one of the organizations for five years. She was severely injured in a mass killing in Tucson (Arizona) in 2011. It was released in 2011 and held at the White House on Thursday. The gun file is a sign of extreme politicization. The post has been vacant since 2015, and the Senate confirmed that Joe Biden’s choice should trigger a more intense battle because the Democratic majority is only speaking.
