WASHINGTON, (BM) – US President Joe Biden is launching his campaign against gun violence in the United States. Several US media reported this news, including AFP and Yahoo News.
The recent massacres in Colorado, Georgia, and California have intensified the Democratic Party, and it is beginning to put pressure on the country’s president to tackle the problem. Biden will have to deal with the so-called “weapon-ghosts” – untraceable weapons, which are also part of the problem.
David Chipman is the paired name for the future director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. He is a strong supporter of the United States to have more strict control over weapons’ proliferation. From 2015 until now, ATP has not had a director who has been voted and approved by the Senate.
A source in the Biden administration, who requested anonymity, said the US president was preparing six measures to tackle gun violence, one of which would be to halt the spread of “ghost weapons.” In the United States, there are many weapons made at home, without a serial number and virtually untraceable.
Other measures, Yahweh News said, will target support agencies and NGOs that have been fighting the country’s proliferation for years.
In the United States, statistics on shootout-related deaths are alarming. We are talking about nearly 40,000 citizens who lose their lives every year on this indicator.
“Gun violence takes lives and leaves a lasting legacy of trauma in communities every single day in this country, even when it is not on the nightly news,” the White House said in a statement. “Cities across the country are amid a historic spike in homicides, violence that disproportionately impacts Black and brown Americans. The president is committed to taking action to reduce all forms of gun violence.”

Arms sales control was one of the US president’s election platforms. For years, there has been no one to prevent the acquisition of some automatic and heavy weapons. According to the Biden administration, the United States is unaware of the actual data and figures on daily shootings and mass suicides.
Joe Biden wants to ban the sale of military weapons to civilians. This category also includes perhaps one of the best-selling rifles in America – the AR-15.
However, the US Congress expects to put up serious resistance, especially to attempts to impose stricter rules on the purchase of weapons and the sale of military-style weapons.
