President Joe Biden pleading with the nation to support his call for new restrictions on firearms.
We've talked about it before - a ban on military-style semi-automatic rifles along with high capacity magazines, closing the so-called gun show loophole with mandatory background checks on private firearm transactions, approval of "red flag" legislation to prohibit gun possession by the mentally unstable ...and even reeling back the civil liability protections granted firearm manufacturers.
The President can't do any of it without Congress - so with a flurry of executive actions, he's nipping around the edges - with a crack-downs on so-called "ghost guns assembled from untraceable parts and regulation of "stabilizing braces" which essentially convert pistols into more lethal, easily concealable, short-barreled rifles.
