On Tuesday, Joe Biden visited Monterey Park, California, to promote his recently signed executive action on gun regulation.
Recall that during a Chinese Lunar New Year celebration in January, a mass shooting in Monterey Park resulted in the deaths of 11 individuals.
Tuesday saw the issuance of a gun restriction executive order by Biden.
The executive order will tighten restrictions on gun sellers and improve background checks.
During the Boys & Girls Club of West San Gabriel Valley, Biden bragged about his new EO.
Biden added, “I’m here on behalf of the American people to grieve with you, to pray alongside you, to just let you know you are loved and that you are not alone.”
He said, “I am here with you today to do something. I’m announcing another executive order today that will quicken and intensify efforts to save more lives.”
The EO orders Merrick Garland to take strict action against gun dealers.
Biden stated, “My executive order authorizes my Attorney General to take every legal step imaginable to advance us as close as possible to universal background checks without additional legislation.”
In his speech, Biden declared war on so-called “assault weapons” and singled out gun makers.
“I’m committed to outlaw assault rifles and high-capacity magazines once more!” said Biden.
