With the real threat of rising crime, the American people demand solutions that keep their families and communities safe. Luckily, President Joe Biden has responded to these calls by nominating Steve Dettelbach to become the next ATF director. The president also recently finalized a rule to require that ghost guns—privately made firearms without serial numbers that are challenging to trace to a crime scene—finally be regulated as weapons.
Members of Congress must continue this work by acting on bipartisan solutions that make an actual difference—like establishing a National Office of Gun Violence Prevention in the White House, investing in Community Violence Intervention Programs that remove illegal guns used in domestic firearm violence incidents and holding the gun industry directly accountable for negligent sales of firearms and ammunition.
It is irresponsible to use false conspiracies to curb this essential work. Neither the president nor the newly nominated ATF director want to take your guns away and there is no such thing as a gun registry. And it is incumbent upon the vast majority of Americans who care about the truth rather than conspiracy clickbait to push back on dis- and misinformation that harms public safety.
