“Yes,” said Psaki in a response to a question during a press briefing on Friday. “I can’t give you an exact time frame in part, because they have to go through a review process, which is something that we do from here.”
“I will note that when we, when the president was the vice president in the Obama-Biden administration, he helped put in place twenty-three executive actions to combat gun violence,” continued Psaki. “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.”
A former aide to Barack Obama said that Biden will plan to “use every single piece of executive order he has.”
“He’ll use every single piece of executive order he has, but this is kind of a purpose-built moment for Joe Biden, who’s the guy who can quietly get things done behind the scenes and if there’s anyone who can move this stalemate through, it’s Joe Biden,” said the aide, Jim Messina, during an appearance on “MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle.”
Biden is considering executive orders that would require background checks on “ghost guns” and requiring that the FBI inform local police of failed background checks.
