"In addition to potential legislative proposals, Biden’s group has expanded its focus to include measures that would not need congressional approval and could be quickly implemented by executive action, according to interest-group leaders who have discussed options with Biden and key Cabinet secretaries. Possibilities include changes to federal mental-health programs and modernization of gun-tracking efforts by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives."


"One potential strategy would be to win support for specific measures from interest groups that are normally aligned with the NRA, according to one person who works closely with the administration on gun-related issues and who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the issue’s sensitivity".

"For instance, this person suggested, Wal-Mart and other major gun retailers may have an incentive to support closing a loophole that allows people to bypass background checks if they purchase firearms at gun shows or through other types of private sales. That could result in more people buying guns in retail stores"


This is probably just a glimpse of their plans

I see it as pointless as any gun laws and bans go. Any evil person with intent to commit such crimes is going to bypass ANYTHING that would stop them from getting a gun.
Police report after crime would be, he tried to buy a gun a wally world , but was stopped due to mental health check, so he stoled or bought his gun on the black market.

It Work about as good as do "gun free zones"
