PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN IS reportedly planning to announce a series of executive actions on Thursday aimed at curbing gun violence.

Politico first reported the news and press secretary Jen Psaki appeared to confirm it during a press conference, though she did not elaborate on the details

The expected actions will focus on tightening restrictions on so-called “ghost guns” – homemade or makeshift firearms that do not have serial numbers. The announcement comes after several high-profile shootings and pressure from Democrats and advocacy groups.

While any additional actions are uncertain, sources speculate Biden could announce regulations on concealed assault weapons, prohibitions on firearm purchases for people convicted of domestic violence crimes and federal guidance on home safety gun storage.

Another announcement the president could make on Thursday is the introduction of his nominee for director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

While the White House declined to comment on any potential gun-related actions, a senior administration official recently confirmed that the administration was concluding its actions and could announce them in stages, Politico reported.

Biden has been facing pressure to act more swiftly on gun control measures, and 100 House Democrats wrote to him last week urging him to take action on concealed assault-style firearms, which are similar guns to the one used in a Colorado shooting last month that killed 10 people.
