Vice President Biden on Tuesday will announce that the administration has successfully implemented 21 of the 23 executive actions proposed by President Obama to combat gun violence.
The speech comes three months after the Senate defeated a bipartisan background check bill, and just over six months after the elementary school shooting in Newtown, Conn. The address is intended to demonstrate that the White House is prioritizing gun control despite congressional inaction.
“Congress must also act,” the White House argues in a progress report set to be released at the Biden event. “Passing common-sense gun safety legislation, including expanding background checks and making gun trafficking a federal crime, remains the single most important step we could take to reduce gun violence.”
