Biden Announces Gun Control Executive Orders .
On April 8, President Biden announced several new gun control measures in light of recent mass shootings.

Another action orders the Justice Department to propose legislation on "red flag" laws.
Red flag laws allow family members or law enforcement to petition for a court order... , White House, via statement.
... temporarily barring people in crisis from accessing firearms if they present a danger to themselves or others, White House, via statement.
Biden also instructed the ATF to compile a report on the illegal firearms trade, which the agency hasn't done since 2000.
Last month, 35 Senate Democrats introduced legislation to ban "assault weapons,".
But it isn't expected to pass, as gun advocates continually cite the Second Amendment.
