The Biden administration's gun violence rule would force weapon dealers to conduct background checks.
If implemented, a new rule from the Biden administration designed to address the country's soaring gun violence could make thousands more gun sellers subject to background checks.
The most important gun control law in nearly 30 years was signed by Biden last year,
providing incentives for states to enact red flag laws and broaden background checks to include those between the ages of 18 and 21.
With 14 Republicans voting against their party, the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, which was designed to stop mass shootings in the US,
was approved by the House by a vote of 234-193. After then, Biden's desk received the measure for his signature.
On March 14, Biden signed an executive order instructing Merrick Garland, the attorney general,
to create and implement a strategy that would define who is involved in the business of dealing firearms and would mandate that they obtain a federal firearms license.
Because of this, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) has proposed a rule that would mandate licensing for persons who sell firearms online or at gun shows and background checks on potential customers before the sale is finalized.
