There is a major political calamity beginning to slink its way over the horizon, and there is little doubt that we could find ourselves speaking almost elusively on the subject of the Second Amendment in the days to come.
That’s because President Joe Biden looks poised to make a major move on the right to bear arms…without even going through Congress.
President Biden will announce new executive action on gun control on Thursday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki indicated.
Psaki, during her press briefing Wednesday, declined to go into details on what the action would entail but said the president would have “more to say” tomorrow.
Earlier Wednesday, Politico first reported that an executive order is coming – after three recent mass shootings in Boulder, Colorado, Atlanta, Georgia, and Orange, California.
Sources told the outlet Biden would begin the process of requiring those who buy “ghost guns,” firearms that lack serial numbers since they’re sold in pieces and put together at home, to undergo background checks. Biden is expected to be joined at the event by Attorney General Merrick Garland.
Of course, it should be noted that “ghost guns” are very seldom to blame in any of the mass-casualty events that have been emotionally exploited in order to get us to this point.
Further, the Constitution itself exists as a high, more authoritative document to any president’s executive order.
