Biden issues executive order to expand background checks for gun purchases

U.S. President Joe Biden has signed an executive order aimed at expanding background checks for gun purchases, which is intended to reduce mass shootings in the country. The executive order includes increasing the use of “red flag” laws, holding the gun industry accountable, and accelerating law enforcement efforts to identify and apprehend shooters. The order also directs the attorney general to clamp down on vendors failing to carry out checks and clarifies who qualifies as a dealer. Biden asked Congress to take additional action to reduce gun violence and urged the Federal Trade Commission to analyze how gun manufacturers market firearms to minors. Biden mourned with a community impacted by gun violence, and the White House said that gun violence affects not only mass shootings but also daily acts of gun violence that may not make national headlines.
