President Joe Biden will take new executive action Thursday aimed at reducing gun violence in the United States.

Politico first reported Wednesday that the new measure — one of several “common sense” gun reforms Biden has promised to take — will require people purchasing “ghost guns,” homemade firearms without serial numbers, to undergo a federal background check.

 

It remains unclear how many specific actions Biden is expected to take on guns, but reporting indicates the president will also seek to close the “Charleston Loophole,” which allows licensed dealers to transfer firearms to buyers before a background check is completed.

The White House did not respond to Daily Caller’s request for comment by press time, but press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed the timeline regarding Thursday’s announcement at Wednesday’s press briefing.
