Biden To Announce VP Harris As Head Of New Gun Violence Prevention Office

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.7

President Joe Biden will announce on Friday that Vice-President Kamala Harris will head up a new Gun Violence Prevention Office which will be given the mission to “prevent gun violence and save lives.”  The Biden Administration says that the office will coordinate federal, state, and local efforts to reduce crimes committed by people with guns.  Critics of the move say that it weaponizes the government against gun owners.  Rep. Michael Cloud (R-TX) has introduced the “Protecting the Right To Keep and Bear Arms Act” which “would explicitly prohibit the president from declaring an emergency to impose gun control, as well as block government officials from prohibiting the manufacturing, sale or transfer of firearms and ammunition during a major disaster or emergency.” Aidan Johnston, director of federal affairs for Gun Owners of America said, “If Biden wants to imitate the governor of New Mexico, it’s this office that would be enforcing his gun violence emergency.”
