LANSING, MI – As would be expected, there are those who are praising President Joe Biden for his efforts to combat gun violence and then there are those who say that he is trying to take away rights to those who are lawful with their firearms.
On Thursday, April 8th, 2021, President Biden signed six executive orders on gun control measures aimed at addressing a proliferation of gun violence across the nation that he called an “epidemic and an international embarrassment.” Biden tightened regulations requiring buyers of “ghost guns” to undergo background checks.
Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel issued the following statement applauding President Joe Biden for his executive orders to combat gun violence.
“I commend President Biden and his administration for taking action to address a problem in our country that has claimed far too many lives. The fact is this: a single life lost to gun violence is one too many and it is time for those in power to do something about it. From putting an end to the proliferation of ghost guns and their purchasers’ ability to circumvent common sense gun laws to model legislation that would work to keep these dangerous weapons out of the wrong hands, I am grateful to President Biden for taking significant steps to tackle our nation’s gun violence epidemic.”
Today, six people were shot, at least one killed at a cabinet making business in Bryan, Texas, just outside of College Station, officials say.
