NRA Criticizes Biden's New 'Gun Violence Prevention' Office and Director's Biases
The White House Office of Gun Violence Prevention faces backlash from the NRA
The Biden administration's new White House Office of so-called 'Gun Violence Prevention' has come under fire from the NRA.
NRA spokesman Billy McLaughlin criticized the office's director, Stefanie Feldman, for her biased views and agenda.
Feldman's social media posts, targeting the NRA and promising executive action on gun control, have raised concerns.
President Biden announced the creation of the office, with Vice President Kamala Harris leading and Feldman as the director.
Biden emphasized the importance of the issue and the need to save lives more quickly through centralized efforts.
Feldman's past posts on X, dating back to 2019, express her determination to defeat the NRA and ban assault weapons.
Harris has also shown support for Biden's efforts to tackle gun violence and has taken on the NRA in the past.
The NRA argues that the Biden administration is using gun control to divert attention from rising crime rates.
Critics question the effectiveness of previous gun control measures and call for a focus on other pressing issues.
