Biden Announces Executive Actions On Guns

President Biden announced executive actions on guns in the wake of recent mass shootings. The Justice Department will pursue regulations on so-called “ghost guns,” weapons that lack serial numbers, and stabilizing braces, accessories that can be used to make pistols more like rifles.

Biden also said he’d nominate a leading gun safety advocate, David Chipman, to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Host Robin Young gets the latest from NPR’s Scott Detrow.
