(Washington, DC) — President Biden is going after gun manufacturers. Today at the White House, Biden said he’s implementing a series of executive actions aimed at curbing gun violence. He also called for ending liability protections for gun manufacturers, saying it would lead to a “come to the Lord” moment. He also asked Congress to ban assault weapons, require background checks for guns bought at gun shows, close loopholes, and reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act. Presidents are limited in what they can do on gun violence without broader action by the House and Senate. Senators will soon take up House-passed legislation expanding background checks, but it faces a rough road in the tightly-divided Senate.
