Watch Reside: Biden, Harris, Garland make feedback on gun violence prevention

[The stream is scheduled to begin at 11:45 am ET. Please refresh the page if you don't see a player above at this time.]

President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and Attorney General Merrick Garland will make remarks on preventing gun violence in the White House Rose Garden on Thursday afternoon.

The address comes under increasing pressure to implement weapons reform following the recent mass shootings in Georgia, Colorado and California.

Biden is expected to unveil a series of gun control executive actions on Thursday and address a prominent gun control attorney who heads the alcohol, tobacco, firearms and explosives bureau, White House officials said Wednesday.

The president plans to instruct the Justice Department to make proposals to regulate ghost guns and stabilize braces, draft a model red flag law for states, and publish a report on the arms trade.

"Ghost Guns" are homemade guns with no traceable serial numbers that are often assembled from parts purchased online. These weapons usually don't require background checks.

Stabilizing struts are accessories that allow users to fire pistols in a manner similar to rifles without being subject to the same regulations as a rifle.

“Red flag” laws give family members or law enforcement agencies the ability to ask state courts to temporarily block firearms from anyone believed to pose a danger to themselves or others.

The Justice Department has not published a report on the arms trade since 2000.

Biden is expected to appoint David Chipman as ATF director. Chipman is a Senior Policy Advisor at Gifford Gun Control Advocacy and was a specialty agent with ATF for 25 years
