WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden is preparing to unveil a series of executive actions aimed at addressing gun violence, delivering his first major action on gun control since taking office.

He will also nominate a former federal agent and adviser at a gun control group, David Chipman, to be director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
