Leaders of several gun control groups say they left a recent White House meeting believing President Biden will soon take consequential action on such issues as gun purchases and possession.

“President Biden is committed to taking executive action and working with Congress to put in place reforms that will keep this country’s kids and communities safe,” said gun control advocate Peter Ambler following a virtual meeting with White House officials Susan Rice and Cedric Richmond. “Today’s meeting was a strong affirmation of that commitment.”

Rice leads the White House Domestic Policy Council, and Richmond is the director of the White House Office of Public Engagement.

“We are pleased that the administration recognizes the gravity of this issue and look forward to continued discussion with and actions by the administration to begin confronting the ever-present threat of gun violence that claims over 100 lives a day,” said Kris Brown, the president of gun control advocacy group Brady.

Biden campaigned consistently on stricter gun controls, including expanding background checks and banning some high-capacity, military-style firearms. Some advocacy groups have been disappointed with the lack of action taken by the Biden administration thus far on the issue, given that Biden has issued dozens of executive orders and actions during his first three weeks of office. 

Gun rights groups and Second Amendment advocates have expected the new administration would attempt to enact more gun control. However, most of the proposed policy proposals so far will require congressional approval and would face a difficult vote in the evenly divided Senate.

“With his nursing home cover-up & abuse coming more to light, it’s clear #CuomosGottaGo. As a NYer, I can’t sit back as Cuomo attacks our freedoms, our wallets & our safety. After many msgs of encouragement & discussing w/ my fam, I’m actively exploring a 2022 run for Gov of NY,” Zeldin tweeted

Supreme Court hears Arizona case with major future voting rights implications

The Supreme Court is hearing a major voting rights case Tuesday that could allow state legislatures to change voting laws, with some concern a high court ruling could make it harder for people to vote.

The court concluded hearing arguments at midday and is expected to make a decision in June.

Many of the arguments between the Supreme Court Justices centered on perceived voter discrimination such as Georgia’s prohibition of early voting on Sundays or forcing voters to vote in assigned precincts.

The Supreme Court is hearing a major voting rights case Tuesday that could allow state legislatures to change voting laws, with some concern a high court ruling could make it harder for people to vote.

The court concluded hearing arguments at midday and is expected to make a decision in June.

Many of the arguments between the Supreme Court Justices centered on perceived voter discrimination such as Georgia’s prohibition of early voting on Sundays or forcing voters to vote in assigned precincts.

The legal battle centers around a pair of election rules in the 2020 presidential election battleground state Arizona. The court will debate two voting measures and whether or not they should be allowed.

The first measure, the out-of-precinct policy, discards ballots from those who vote in the wrong precinct. The second rule outlaws so-called “ballot harvesting” and allows only election officials, mail carriers, family or household members, or caregivers to return another person’s mail-in ballot. Those who run afoul of the ballot-collection law face up to two years in prison and a $150,000 fine, according to CBS News.

“People who are poor and less well educated on ballots probably will find it more difficult to comply with just about every voting rule than do people who are more affluent and have the benefit of more education,” Justice Samuel Alito said.

The court will also decide on section 2 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 which bars discrimination in voting procedures. The Supreme Court took out key provisions of the Act in 2013 which allowed local and state governments to not have to get permission from the court to change certain aspects of voting laws.

The Supreme Court will be hearing testimonies from GOP lawyer Michael Carvin and Arizona’s Attorney General Mark Brnovitch, who first brought the case against the Democratic National Committee after two previous appeals to lower courts ranging back to 2016. The court also heard from a DNC lawyer who opposed the voting restrictions.
