Points
  • In his first gun control measures since taking office, Joe Biden announced a half-dozen executive actions aimed at addressing a proliferation of gun violence across the nation that he called an 'epidemic and an international embarrassment".
  • Greeting the families of gun violence victims and activists in the Rose Garden, Biden thanked them for their presence and continued action.
  • And he assured them: "We're absolutely determined to make change.' But the announcement underscores the limitations of Biden's executive power to act on guns, facing an evenly divided Senate, where Republicans remain near-unified against most proposals.
