Impact of US Gun Law in These Kind of Incidents
This month President Biden declared programs to fight against the “international embarrassment” of gun violence in the US. The Justice Department is going to increase controls on “ghost guns”, those made from kits with unknown origins.
Biden commented: “Gun violence in this country is an epidemic and it’s an international embarrassment. This is an epidemic, for God’s sake, and it has to stop.”
He added, “Nothing I’m about to recommend in any way impinges on the second amendment. They’re phony arguments, suggesting that these are second amendment rights at stake, what we’re talking about. But no amendment to the constitution is absolute.”
“You can’t shout ‘Fire!’ in a crowded movie theatre and call it freedom of speech,” Mr. President announced.
When Donald Trump was president, he stayed close to the National Rifle Association (NRA) which campaigns against gun controls. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives report more than 30% of illegal guns seized in parts of California are “ghost guns”.
About this report, the president added: “You can go buy the kit. They have no serial numbers so when they show up at a crime scene they can’t be traced, and the buyers aren’t required to pass background checks to buy the kit to make the gun.”
“Consequently, anyone from a criminal to a terrorist can buy this kit and in as little as 30 minutes put together a weapon.”
“I want to see these kits treated as firearms under the gun control act which is going to require that the seller and manufacturers make the key parts with serial numbers and run background checks on the buyers when they walk in to buy the package,” he explained.
