The Justice Dept. will make a rule to "help stop the proliferation of ghost guns." The DOJ will, after that, issue a rule about stabilizing braces. The DOJ will publish model "Red Flag" legislation for states. Biden will nominate David Chipman to serve as the Director of the ATF. The DOJ will issue an annual report on firearms trafficking. The Biden admin is investing in "evidence-based" community violence interventions.
"The danger posed by firearms that enable shooters to continue firing in this manner is the same reason Congress chose to include machine guns in the NFA when it was originally enacted: these weapons enable a shooter to fire many bullets very quickly. Semi-automatic firearms equipped with large-capacity magazines do not, however, fall under the NFA. The NFA refers to machine guns as those firearms that discharge more than one shot without manual reloading, by a single function of the trigger. Firearms developed since the NFA and equipped with large capacity magazines rarely require manual reloading, but they can expel a lot of ammunition in a brief period. They do so by allowing a trigger to be pulled many times very easy and ensuring that there is almost always another bullet ready to go. Despite this, large-capacity magazines and semi-automatic firearms equipped with them (sometimes called "assault weapons") are not regulated under the NFA, even though they pose an incredible danger to our communities."
