President Joe Biden looks to remove “liability shields” protecting gun manufacturers from frivolous lawsuits, states White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.
The Associated Press did an overview of current gun control. Both H.R.8 and H.R.1466 have passed in the House and Senate.
H.R.8 puts into place universal background checks; private gun sales via the internet would be a crime. As well as the expansion of point of sales background checks.
H.R.1446 extends the current period of time the FBI has for an instant background check. Currently, it is three business days; it would extend to at least ten business days.
Paski was quoted by the AP saying President Biden is eager “to advance priorities” on the gun control push.
She added Biden’s priorities include “repealing gun manufacturers’ liability shields.”
Feb 25, 2020, Biden told gun manufacturers “I’m coming for you.”
Although Biden is a gun owner himself, he has supported a stricter interpretation of the Second Amendment.
The NRA believes that Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris “want to destroy the Second Amendment.
