The White House confirmed on Friday that President Joe Biden will sign executive orders on gun control.
During Friday’s White House press conference, CNN Chief White House Correspondent Kaitlan Collins asked, “Should we still be expecting executive orders from the President on gun measures?” White House press secretary Jen Psaki replied, “Yes,” and said there isn’t “an exact timeframe” on the gun control actions.
“I will note that when the president was the vice-president in the Obama-Biden administration, he helped put in place 23 executive actions to combat gun violence,” Psaki added. “It’s one of the levers that we can use, that any federal government, any President can use to help address the prevalence of gun violence and address community safety around the country.” . . .

“Executive actions are of course, an important lever that every president has at their disposal,” Psaki stated. “There’s current discussions and analysis internally of what steps can be taken,.that that has been ongoing for several weeks, even before these two recent tragedies, that he looks forward to getting an update on and seeing what can be moved forward on that front as well. So he’s not waiting for anything to fail, is really the answer to your question.” (Read more from “White House Confirms Biden Will Sign Executive Order on Gun Control” HERE)
