White House Staff Reveals Gun Control Is Biden’s Top Priority

(ReliableNews.org) – Joe Biden campaigned in part on a promise to end the nation’s gun violence by targeting protections for gun manufacturers and citizens. On February 14, he took a huge leap in that direction and issued a statement calling on Congress to pass legislation extending background checks, banning high-capacity magazines and assault rifles, and other harsh restrictions.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki followed up on Tuesday, February 16, telling reporters that passing gun control measures is “a priority” for Biden “on a personal level.” She also stated that Biden had no reservations about “standing up to the NRA,” after all he’s done it “multiple times” in the past.

She said the administration hadn’t drafted a proposed gun bill yet, and she could not offer any kind of time frame for one. So far, it sounds like Biden is shooting blanks when it comes to taking any action on his promise — and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
