The Justice Department, within 30 days, will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of “ghost guns.” We are experiencing a growing problem: criminals are buying kits containing nearly all of the components and directions for finishing a firearm within as little as 30 minutes and using these firearms to commit crimes. When these firearms turn up at crime scenes, they often cannot be traced by law enforcement due to the lack of a serial number. The Justice Department will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of these firearms.

The Justice Department, within 60 days, will issue a proposed rule to make clear when a device marketed as a stabilizing brace effectively turns a pistol into a short-barreled rifle subject to the requirements of the National Firearms Act. The alleged shooter in the Boulder tragedy last month appears to have used a pistol with an arm brace, which can make a firearm more stable and accurate while still being concealable.

The Justice Department, within 60 days, will publish model “red flag” legislation for states. Red flag laws allow family members or law enforcement to petition for a court order temporarily barring people in crisis from accessing firearms if they present a danger to themselves or others. The President urges Congress to pass an appropriate national “red flag” law, as well as legislation incentivizing states to pass “red flag” laws of their own. In the interim, the Justice Department’s published model legislation will make it easier for states that want to adopt red flag laws to do so.

The Administration is investing in evidence-based community violence interventions. Community violence interventions are proven strategies for reducing gun violence in urban communities through tools other than incarceration. Because cities across the country are experiencing a historic spike in homicides, the Biden-Harris Administration is taking a number of steps to prioritize investment in community violence interventions.

  • The American Jobs Plan proposes a $5 billion investment over eight years to support community violence intervention programs. A key part of community violence intervention strategies is to help connect individuals to job training and job opportunities.
  • The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is organizing a webinar and toolkit to educate states on how they can use Medicaid to reimburse certain community violence intervention programs, like Hospital-Based Violence Interventions.
  • Five federal agencies are making changes to 26 different programs to direct vital support to community violence intervention programs as quickly as possible. These changes mean we can start increasing investments in community violence interventions as we wait on Congress to appropriate additional funds. Read more about these agency actions here.
The Justice Department will issue an annual report on firearms trafficking. In 2000, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) issued a report summarizing information regarding its investigations into firearms trafficking, which is one way firearms are diverted into the illegal market where they can easily end up in the hands of dangerous individuals. Since the report’s publication, states, local, and federal policymakers have relied on its data to better thwart the common channels of firearms trafficking. But there is good reason to believe that firearms trafficking channels have changed since 2000, for example due to the emergence of online sales and proliferation of “ghost guns.” The Justice Department will issue a new, comprehensive report on firearms trafficking and annual updates necessary to give policymakers the information they need to help address firearms trafficking today.

The President will nominate David Chipman to serve as Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. ATF is the key agency enforcing our gun laws, and it needs a confirmed director in order to do the job to the best of its ability. But ATF has not had a confirmed director since 2015. Chipman served at ATF for 25 years and now works to advance commonsense gun safety laws.

this executive BS is Biden’s handlers feeling the pressure from their “support” base. It will accomplish nothing but a slew of legal cases and further strengthening gun sales. Wait until this summer when the peaceful protests get extra peaceful...that will put the lid on protectionist agenda for a while.

I dont use ghost guns, i think they're a stupid range toy. So im not at all upset that POTUS is moving to ban them.

fudds say the same about most of your guns

Lol, so Sleepy Joe is going to ask the DOJ to come up with a "policy" on 80% lowers within 30 days... which will then be fought in court forever. Good job Biden.

You don't think they won't expand a ban to anything to do with home gunsmithing, parts, and accessories? The tactical gear thread will probably be exhibit A in charging you with a couple thousand felonies.

I’m waiting to see what actually comes down. By definition, a “ghost gun” is a completed firearm usually based on an 80% lower/frame. As far as I know an 80% lower by itself has never been considered a "ghost gun". So I want to see if they are talking about changing the definition of an 80% lower/frame to make it a firearm, which is the only thing I see the ATF as being able to do, and even that will be adjudicated in court.
Yeah I think they already did this... like you can't buy the whole kit any more.... but you can still buy all the parts or buy the jig separately.... what do I know though

I think Snacks was being sarcastic?

Possible, but given the attitudes about guns that some on this board and others express, it's sometimes difficult to decipher. I don't know him personally, nor am I going to do an in depth inquiry into a thousand previous posts. I take what people express at face value.

anyone who admits to voting biden on a gun forum won't last long in a zombie apocalypse.
about as smart as the guy in Canada who called out a bunch of people for not wearing masks and got the crap kicked out of him....though nothing surprises me with people and what they are willing to do in support of their cause.
