Biden Expected To Sign Executive Order On Gun Background Checks

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.6

President Joe Biden is expected to sign a new executive order increasing the number of background checks required to buy a gun. The executive order, which aims to bolster a bipartisan gun control law enacted last summer called the Safer Communities Act, will also promote better gun storage and better enable law enforcement agencies to red-flag gun buyers who have a higher potential for violent behavior.  The executive order also mandates better information on ballistics data from shell casings from federal law enforcement to a database which enables police to match shell casings with guns.
