Joe Biden announces creation of first-ever federal gun control office
By Arsenio Toledo // Sep 24, 2023

President Joe Biden has announced the creation of the first-ever federal office for gun control, fulfilling a key demand from anti-gun activists who want an executive-level office supposedly for preventing gun violence.

The Office of Gun Violence Prevention will be overseen by Vice President Kamala Harris. Stefanie Feldman, a longtime Biden aide who previously worked on the Domestic Policy Council, will serve as the office's first director.

"He believes that now is the moment to accelerate our work to reduce gun violence, which is why he is establishing this office," said Feldman.

The office will coordinate anti-gun efforts across different federal agencies and will offer help and guidance to states struggling with increasing levels of gun violence. Furthermore, the office will also reportedly take the lead on implementing bipartisan gun legislation signed into law last year.

Harris added in her statement that, in her role as head of this office, she and her staff will be "engaging and encouraging Congressional leaders, state and local leaders and advocates to come together to build upon the meaningful progress that we have made to save lives."

"This epidemic of gun violence requires urgent leadership to end the fear and trauma that Americans experience every day," added Harris. "Our promise to the American people is this: We will not stop working to end the epidemic of gun violence in every community, because we do not have a moment, nor a life to spare."

Biden claims gun control measures necessary to curb gun-related violence

The establishment of the office is an effort by the White House to keep the issue of gun violence front and center as his administration continues to push back against gun owners by demanding a ban on so-called assault weapons.

"I'll continue to urge Congress to take common-sense actions that the majority of Americans support, like enacting universal background checks and banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines," said Biden in a statement released by the White House. Biden has also consistently been calling for federal requirements for safe storage of guns and an end to the immunity from liability of gun manufacturers.

"But in the absence of that sorely-needed action, the Office of Gun Violence Prevention, along with the rest of my Administration, will continue to do everything it can to combat the epidemic of gun violence that is tearing our families, our communities and our country apart," he added.

The anti-firearm lobby has been extremely supportive of Biden, and his reelection campaign has already received early endorsements from different major gun violence prevention organizations. His creation of this office is seen as a result of extensive lobbying efforts by these groups.

One of Biden's earliest actions supposedly to prevent gun violence was getting bipartisan support from Republicans to pass a package of modest gun safety measures last year, known as the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act.

The White House is expected to keep pushing its limits in terms of using its executive powers against guns and gun owners. Biden's Department of Justice is expected to follow up the creation of this office by introducing new rules to expand background checks for new gun purchases.
