The edicts will affect, in particular, weapons made with the help of 3D-printing
The administration of Joe Biden is now studying the legal side of possible restrictions on the circulation of weapons in the United States, which the president intends to initiate.
In particular, the restrictions will affect firearms made using 3D printers as well as weapons imported into the United States.
On Friday, President Biden said his administration was examining whether the president could impose the restrictions through executive orders.
The president noted that firearms that are created using 3D printers are not registered as weapons under current laws. In a number of U.S. states, lawmakers are trying to prohibit the spread of related technologies.
Recall that earlier Joe Biden advocated a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. He promised to introduce new controls after two mass shootings this month that killed 18 people in Georgia and Colorado.
Biden also urged the Senate to approve two bills passed by the House of Representatives. The bills concern increased background checks for gun buyers.
