The Biden administration is scheduled to unveil the details of this new federal office on Friday, and it will be staffed by multiple gun control activists who advocate for congressional action to restrict access to firearms.
The office will be overseen by Stephanie Feldman, the White House staff secretary, who currently specializes in gun control research at the White House. The office will also include Greg Jackson and Rob Wilcox, two directors of gun control activist groups.
In response to the report of this new federal office, many gun control advocacy groups have welcomed the news of the White House establishing a dedicated office for gun violence prevention. Zeenat Yahya, Director of Policy at March for Our Lives, expressed support for this initiative, emphasizing its potential to strengthen the relationship between the government and gun control organizations.
“We know this is not the end-all, be-all solution, but it’s really important to us that someone has the ear of the president,” Yahya stated.
While the Biden administration has been proactive in pursuing gun control measures, it has encountered numerous challenges in achieving a complete ban on certain firearms. While this new federal office represents the White House’s continued efforts to place restrictions on Americans’ Second Amendment rights, it remains to be seen if it will be successful in forwarding President Biden’s agenda.
