Answering a question instead of circling back, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki admitted that while gun violence isn’t enough of a problem to get headlines, the Biden Administration plans to push forward in their plans for gun control anyway.
At Thursday’s press conference, Psaki said,
“Gun violence may not be in the headlines today, or right now, but gun violence continues to fracture American communities and American families every single day.”
“We know gun violence in our cities disproportionately effects black and brown individuals. Last month we also saw a near-record increase in gun sales,” she said.
“We look forward to working with gun violence survivors and advocates and sharing more in the weeks and months ahead about our efforts to make our communities safer,” Psaki added.
Psaki also made a point to mention that senior leadership in Biden’s White House have already met with the major gun control groups, including Everytown for Gun Safety, Gabby Giffords’ gun control group, Moms Demand Action, and the Brady Campaign Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. Psaki said the groups met with the White House to discuss “shared goals.”
We reported on February 4 when Psaki reiterated that Joe Biden “would love to see action” on gun control. When asked if he would consider executive actions on gun control, Psaki didn’t rule it out, but did comment that there were several gun control bills already in Congress.
Nasty Gun Control Bills Already Filed
The most notorious bill currently filed in Congress is Sheila Jackson Lee’s H.R. 127. We have reported on this monster of a gun control bill. In addition to mandating that all guns and ammo in the country be registered, this bill would mandate mental health checks to buy a gun, outlaw any caliber magazine that holds more than ten rounds, and even require civil liability insurance to own a gun!
It’s obvious to gun owners that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have to pass some radical gun control to keep the radicals in their party happy — they did promise, after all!
Will it be H.R.127? Another bill that’s already filed or some new legislation that gun owners haven’t seen, yet?
Nobody knows — least of all Jen Psaki!
