The executive orders that are still under consideration are not necessarily applicable upon the latest mass shootings that occurred at Boulder or the killing or 8 people previous week in the Atlanta massage parlours.

Biden warranted the gun control executive orders on Tuesday in one speech at White House; however major reforms are not likely to be passed by the Senate, where sixty votes are generally required for passing a bill.

Notably, 35 Senate Democrats launched legislation in March to ban the assault weapons, which includes famous semi-automatic guns like the AR-15-style rifles.
