Biden Brags About Using Executive Power to Put Gun Control in Place

President Joe Biden posted on X Thursday to brag about how many times he has circumvented Congress by securing gun control via executive action.

Biden posted:

Biden began using executive action for gun control just months into his presidency.

On April 8, 2021, Breitbart News reported Biden put forward executive gun controls to fight what he called “an epidemic” of gun crime across the country. The executive actions included restrictions on “ghost guns,” a push for red flag laws, recategorization of AR-15 pistols, and DOJ-led research into gun trafficking.

From that moment in April 2021 forward, Biden continued to use executive action when Congress refused to pass new gun controls, and he boasted about it.

For example, on August 18, 2023, Breitbart News noted Biden boasting about the number of times he has used executive action to institute gun control that Congress did not pass. Using X, Biden wrote, “Since I’ve been in office, I’ve signed more executive actions to reduce gun violence than any of my predecessors. Earlier this year, I signed an executive order to ramp up our efforts to hold the gun industry accountable, keep firearms out of dangerous hands, and more.”
