Biden to announce measures to tighten access to firearms in the U.S.
U.S. President, Joe Biden, will announce new actions on Tuesday. with which he hopes to tighten access to firearms in the country and he will do so in Monterey Park, California, one of the most affected states and where a man killed eleven people in the city of Monterey Park, 15 kilometers from Los Angeles, and committed suicide shortly after when he was cornered by the police.
There he plans to give a speech on firearms control and will explain the measures he wants to push for, such as commissioning the U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland to adjust the current legal definition of companies that sell guns. to bring them more closely in line with the law requiring them to conduct criminal background checks on any potential buyer.
In turn, he will announce that. the government is going to launch information campaigns. on the so-called “red flag” or “red flag” laws, which enable a legal procedure to be activated to confiscate the firearms of those who pose a danger to others or to themselves.
With respect to manufacturers, Biden will ask the. Federal Trade Commission to prepare a report on how these companies promote the use of firearms among minors, the White House said.
June will mark one year since Congress passed a limited but historic legislative agreement for gun control. The bill included an overhaul of the purchase process for those under 21 and included incentives for states to pass so-called “hazard alert” laws.
However, these types of restrictions have run into the opposition from some members of the Republican party.who have argued that it violates constitutional rights.
