Bedingfield, speaking on CNN’s “New Day,” reiterated that the six actions Biden will take on Thursday will be initial steps in the White House’s effort to address gun violence and mass shootings, indicating more actions are to come.
“These are all really important steps that he can take within his authority as president, but he would be the first to say this is not enough and Congress needs to move forward, for example, on the bipartisan background check bills that are in front of them because the majority of the American people believe that we need sensible gun reform,” Bedingfield said.

Biden is announcing at an event later Thursday that the Justice Department will issue a series of proposed rules meant to restrict the proliferation of “ghost guns,” publish a model “red flag” law that could be adopted by states, and publish an annual report on firearms trafficking.
