Anti-gun organizations have revealed their frustration with Joe Biden’s failure to follow-through on promises he made during his campaign about implementing more national gun control.
Four leading civilian disarmament groups – Guns Down America March For Our Lives Newtown Action Alliance Survivors Empowered – sent a letter to the president in which they call on him to “establish an Office of Gun Violence Prevention,” “unveil a comprehensive strategy and proactive plan for pursuing your legislative agenda on gun reform,” and “use the presidential bully pulpit to talk to Americans about the risks and dangers of firearm ownership…”
Politico published a copy of the letter, which says, in part:
“You ran on one of the strongest gun violence prevention platforms in American history, promising to pursue a bold agenda that broadly resonated with voters, particularly young people, across the country… we celebrate [your critical actions on other issues], they fall significantly short of the promises you yourself made while running for the presidency.”
The groups go on to outline statements Biden has made at various events and in different speeches pledging to enact “gun reform” and how he’s failed at every turn.
Biden’s gun-control-enforcer-in-chief, David Chipman, nominated to be the next director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, is fading with each passing day.
Maybe Biden IS the great unifier, after all. Turns out everyone is disappointed by his continued failures…
