I read two things that are meaningless, one thing that won't pass constitutional muster, and one big old barrel of pork.
Well, it's not exactly a nothingburger, but it's also not even an actual policy yet. Directing the Justice Department to develop administrative policy is absolutely the President's perogative.Explain please
Also so called "Ghost Guns" are almost never actually used in crimes due to how much effort it takes to put them together.1. "Ghost guns". This is a reference to things like 80% upper kits, which can be freely bought and sold because they're not legally considered firearms until someone puts the work in to actually finish them. However, the EO doesn't actually ban kits, it only directs the Justice Department to think up a proposed regulation to "stop the proliferation" of them.
That was awful and disturbing, however in Trump's defense, I think it was motivated by more of a genuine sense of "oh crap, this is a problem, we need to do something", he just handled it in the most dumb, hamfisted way possible, because Trump. But there was a genuine desire to actually address the issue, as opposed to something like Biden's EOs here, which target "issues" that cannot be be tangibly linked to any sort of criminal behavior, they're almost pure theater.Trump wasn't any better on gun rights, and Trump's statements on wanting to seize legal guns *first* and ban them afterwards rank among the most disturbingly extreme things any American political leader has ever said.
There's not really a lot of extra effort involved in putting together a parts kit and 80% lower, it's more that there's actually next to no tangible benefit to having one. Ghost guns aren't used in crimes because there's no value to an untraceable gun. The cops can get ahold a gun you used to murder somone in one two ways.Also so called "Ghost Guns" are almost never actually used in crimes due to how much effort it takes to put them together.
It's not quite that bad.President Biden signed an executive order Friday establishing a commission to study whether to add seats to the Supreme Court and other reform proposals, the White House announced, fulfilling a promise he made on the campaign trail.thehill.com
Who's stunned he's moving to pack the Supreme Court?
This is basically him kicking the question down the road, because these questions are things everyone involved already knows or that are functional irrelevant. For example, term limits for justices. Justices have a lifetime term, per the constitution, and that can only be changed via amendment. That's civics 101 stuff, the only reason to form a committee for that is if you know the answer, know that telling people the answer will piss them off, and want someone else to take the heat for telling them.“The Commission’s purpose is to provide an analysis of the principal arguments in the contemporary public debate for and against Supreme Court reform, including an appraisal of the merits and legality of particular reform proposals,” the White House said in a statement. “The topics it will examine include the genesis of the reform debate; the Court’s role in the Constitutional system; the length of service and turnover of justices on the Court; the membership and size of the Court; and the Court’s case selection, rules, and practices.”
It's not even necessary at this point, considering how the Supreme Court castrated themselves; it's unlikely they'll ever oppose the establishment when it really matters.It's not quite that bad.

I'm actually sorta interested in these, because it will amusing. For example, the "genesis of the reform debate" is pretty well known. It originated because the democrats want to seize power and need the veneer of legitimacy to get away with doing so, and I'm really looking forward to seeing how the committee either admits that, or twists itself up in knots trying to not admit that.
Also, keep in mind no matter what this committee says, Biden can't do anything. Court packing will have to start with congress laying the groundwork, and they don't have the votes for it.
This is honestly just the tip of the iceberg for the insanity and bullshit that awaits us, and no its not just america but the entire western world. Its going to get a whole lot worse.We may not see the full on crazy attempted communist takeover until Kamala takes over. This is just the prelude, trying to appease the crazies in the Democrat asylum. They won't be.
