President Joe Biden just admitted that he has repeatedly used executive action to bypass Congress to impose the left's gun control agenda on the American people.
Biden made the admission in a message that he posted to the social media site X on Thursday, Aug. 17, 2023.
In that X message, Biden wrote, "Since I've been in office, I've signed more executive actions to reduce gun violence than any of my predecessors."
He added, "Earlier this year, I signed an executive order to ramp up our efforts to hold the gun industry accountable, keep firearms out of dangerous hands, and more."

Both Biden and the Biden White House have been quick to flaunt Biden's use of executive actions to push the left's gun control agenda.
In July 2022, for example, the White House posted a "Fact Sheet" in which it celebrated "The Biden Administration's 21 Executive Actions to Reduce Gun Violence."
The executive actions targeted everything from "ghost guns" to stabilizing braces to much, much more.
Since then, Biden has only continued to use executive action to push gun control. In March 2023, for example, Biden issued yet another executive order "to reduce gun violence and make our communities safer."
"Today, in Monterey Park, California, President Biden will announce an Executive Order with the goal of increasing the number of background checks conducted before firearm sales, moving the U.S. as close to universal background checks as possible without additional legislation," the White House announcement reads.
This is the problem with what Biden is doing, namely using executive orders to bypass Congress - and thus the people - to impose gun control on America.
Biden did attempt, initially, to pass gun control legislation through Congress. But, this did not work because there has not been enough support in Congress for such legislation.
This raises the question: is the purpose of executive action - for the president to be able to enact unpopular legislation without Congress?
Surely, the answer is "no." It is basic knowledge that the legislature makes the laws and that the executive branch enforces them. But, then again, the Democrats never do seem to be able to follow the rules.
