Left-wing Hollywood stars broke out in jubilation Thursday after President Joe Biden announced four executive orders on gun control. As Breitbart News reported, Biden put forward executive actions in four areas including new restrictions on “ghost guns,” a push for red flag laws, the re-categorization of AR-15 pistols, and DOJ-led research into gun trafficking.
Biden also declared that “no amendment to the Constitution is absolute,” in what seemed like a reference to the Second Amendment.
Stars erupted in joy despite Biden’s orders falling well short of his campaign promises. Julianne Moore called it a “major win for gun safety,” adding that Biden is on his way to keeping his “promise to be the strongest gun safety president in American history. ”
Debra Messing declared Thursday’s White House announcement as just the first step “in protecting our loved ones from preventable gun violence.”

Actress Sophia Bush said “Let’s get to regulating” guns.
Also, if we’re going to get real about history? The Second Amendment also specifies that gun owners must be “well regulated.” Says it right there. That’s ALWAYS been the law.
Let’s get to regulating well.
