The White House announced on Thursday that President Joe Biden is implementing executive action to promote more gun control, this time regarding gun storage.
A White House press release noted that Biden’s actions are designed to “promote safe storage of firearms that implement President Biden’s Executive Order on promoting safe gun storage in order to reduce gun violence and make our communities safer.”
The White House claims that “safe storage of firearms” can reduce “school shootings, youth suicides, unintentional shootings, and theft of firearms.”
In response to the executive action, the Department of Justice will release a guide for firearm storage, including an overview of storage devices.
The Department of Education will send a letter to school principals urging them to talk about gun storage with parents of school children and the larger community. The Department of Education will also provide communications guidance that “principals and school leaders can use to engage with parents and families about the importance of safe firearm storage and encourage more people to take preventive action by safely storing firearms.”
