Biden does not need Congress to pass wide sweeping gun control, he could use executive orders and regulatory bodies to enforce these policies.

The Biden administration has already put forward a record a number of executive orders in the first few weeks of the Biden Presidency but nothing gun related has been pushed through. That may change as the Biden administration has begun meeting with gun control advocates who are pushing some heavy gun reform measures. More from Fox News: 

Second Amendment advocates say Biden doesn’t have the authority to ban assault weapons or magazine capacity by executive order but could use regulatory authority to restrict guns without Congress’ input.

“I think that President Biden will try to get away with as much as he can with executive orders,” Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation, told Fox News, adding that his organization is “very prepared to go to court” if Biden oversteps.

“What we’re expecting him to do is anything with foreign commerce — if the firearm is being imported in or magazine or ammo is being imported in — he could by executive order try to do something in that nature,” Gottlieb continued.

Gottlieb said Biden could use the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to tighten regulations he says are “beyond the scope of what Congress has given him the authority to do,” in which case he says the foundation is prepared to sue. But the White House has yet to nominate a leader for the ATF.

The 2nd Amendment is under a lot of pressure and with Democrats in control of the House and an even split in the Senate. This coupled with Joe Biden in the White House, gun control is a very real threat and those who support the 2nd amendment need to be on high alert.
