President Joe Biden has fired off a number of anti-gun executive orders, including a directive on controversial “red flag” laws. The orders fall short of comprehensive regulation, which Biden has called on Congress to enact.

The orders were revealed by the White House a day earlier, and include a directive asking the Justice Department to crack down on untraceable ‘Ghost Guns’ and issue model “red flag” legislation, and a proposed restriction on shoulder braces for pistols.
