President Biden will announce new executive action on gun control on Thursday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki indicated.
Psaki, during her press briefing Wednesday, declined to go into details on what the action would entail but said the president would have "more to say" tomorrow.
Sources told the outlet Biden would begin the process of requiring those who buy "ghost guns," firearms that lack serial numbers since they’re sold in pieces and put together at home, to undergo background checks. Biden is expected to be joined at the event by Attorney General Merrick Garland.
It’s not clear what other action will be announced. Last week 100 House Democrats wrote to Biden urging him to take action on concealed assault-style rifles.

Biden has called for a ban on "assault weapons" and high-capacity magazines, which would likely take an act of Congress. He could, however, use regulatory authority to restrict access to such guns.
"I got that done as a senator. It brought down mass shootings, we can do it again," Biden said last month. "We can ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines in this country once again."
"I think that President Biden will try to get away with as much as he can with executive orders," Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation, told Fox News, adding that his organization is "very prepared to go to court" if Biden oversteps.
"What we’re expecting him to do is anything with foreign commerce – if the firearm is being imported in or magazine or ammo is being imported in – he could by executive order try to do something in that nature," Gottlieb continued.
Gottlieb said Biden could use the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to tighten regulations. Biden has yet to nominate a director for the ATF.
The Biden administration has also pushed for legislative action, calling on the Senate to pass two bills that recently made their way through the House.

The bills expand federal gun background checks on all firearms sales and extend the background check review period from three days to a minimum of 10 business days. One bill would close the "Charleston loophole," in which a gun sale is allowed to proceed if the background check is not completed in three days.

Can't we just get federal judge to halt it just like they did with Trump's EO's?

wouldn't bet your life on it
About the only thing he could do is ban imports. They would probably uphold that. The rest would get shot down just like the bump stock deal.

I cannot prove one way or the other but I think most crimes are not committed with registered guns. Or at least they are not registered to the person doing the crime, and I do not think it is going to change soon.

The president also is expected to announce his nomination of David Chipman as the director of the Justice Department's Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, according to senior administration officials. Chipman is an ATF veteran who currently serves as an adviser for the gun control advocacy group named for former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., who survived a 2011 mass shooting in Tucson, Arizona, as a congresswoman.
The first action will direct the Department of Justice to propose a rule within 30 days to stop the proliferation of so-called "ghost guns," or makeshift weapons that can be constructed at home or that lack a serial number, according to a senior administration official who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the actions ahead of the president's announcement. The official declined to say whether that meant the Justice Department would classify "ghost guns" as firearms.
Other actions include directing the Justice Department to issue a proposed rule within 60 days that makes clear a device marketed as a stabilizing brace, which effectively allows a pistol to operate as a short-barreled rifle, is subject to the requirements of the National Firearms Act, according to the official.
The suspect behind a Boulder, Colorado, grocery store shooting last month that left 10 people dead used a Ruger AR-556 pistol, which looks and operates like a rifle, and even uses the same ammunition as the AR-15 weapon used dozens of U.S. mass killings, but doesn't qualify as one under U.S. gun laws. The official pointed out the suspect used a pistol that included an arm brace, "which can make a firearm more stable and accurate while still being concealable."

The president has come under immense pressure from gun safety advocacy groups and Democrats to address gun violence after mass shootings in Colorado, Georgia and California thrust gun control back into the national conversation in recent weeks. A recent poll ABC News/Ipsos poll found that a majority of Americans (57%) disapproved of the way Biden has handled gun violence as president among both Democrats and Republicans.

It's political theater for the stupid.
Joementia claims he will solve a nonexistent "loophole" then in a few months he'll claim he "fixed it" and the trained seals will clap and slobber all over him.
