Joe Biden pledged countless times during the presidential campaign to effect sweeping gun control via executive action on day one once he was in the White House. Day one has come and gone with a record number of executive orders signed by Grampy Joe…but none of them have anything to do with gun control.
This has left gun control advocates feeling…“betrayed.” Cue the sad violin music.
Twenty-two additional days have passed since Biden’s inauguration and still no gun control action from the BidenHarris regime, despite this week being the third anniversary of the Parkland massacre.
According to CNN (no really) the hair-sniffer-in-chief has signed forty-nine (49!) executive orders as of February 10th. But none have touched on gun control. Not. A. Single. One.
But friends of Shannon Watts, aka Shannon Troughton, president and owner of of VoxPop Public Relations, a boutique liberal PR firm, never fear. On Wednesday, they met – virtually – with White House officials. Following that meeting, members of the Civilian Disarmament Industrial Complex tooted their tiny tin horns with cocksure confidence that action on “gun safety” will soon be a-comin’.
Leaders of prominent gun control groups said Wednesday they expect to see substantive action from President Biden on the issue in the near future after a meeting with White House officials.
“President Biden is committed to taking executive action and working with Congress to put in place reforms that will keep this country’s kids and communities safe,” said Peter Ambler, executive director of the group Giffords. “Today’s meeting was a strong affirmation of that commitment.”
Mr. Ambler and other leaders met virtually with Susan Rice, who leads the White House Domestic Policy Council, and Cedric Richmond, director of the White House Office of Public Engagement.
Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action, said they’re “confident” about seeing executive and legislative action in the “near future.”
But “soon” can be a slippery and subjective adverb. Especially from a chief executive who can’t seem to remember where he is most days.
