Biden Confirms He’ll Make Announcement on Gun Control This Week

By Jack Phillips, The Epoch Times

President Joe Biden said he’ll make an announcement on his upcoming gun control plan on Friday, coming after reports that suggested he would sign an executive order on guns in the near future.

When asked about reports saying he would take executive action soon, Biden responded in saying he would talk about his plan for gun control “the day after tomorrow.” It’s not clear if he will sign an executive order.

Earlier Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters that “I think he sees it as vital to take steps on two tracks because congressional legislation obviously has a more permanent, lasting impact.”

“Executive actions are, of course, an important lever that every president has at their disposal,” she said.

During the news conference, Psaki declined to say what policies Biden would sign.

“I don’t have anything to preview,” she added. “I can convey that I expect the president will have more to say tomorrow.”
