Joe Biden isn’t waiting for Inauguration Day — or even the certification of the Electoral College — to prepare his first attack on the Second Amendment.
Stef Feldman, national policy director of Biden’s presidential campaign, spoke via video to the Institute of Politics and Public Service at Georgetown University to announce the latest Biden administration plans.
Feldman stated Biden plans “big, bold changes through executive action, not just on policing and climate like we talked about previously, but in healthcare and education on gun violence, on a range of issues.” Further, her comments referred to gun control through executive order.
Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety organization also joined the call for the Biden administration to increase firearm limitations. Specific actions referred to requiring additional background checks for gun sales and tracking for homemade firearms. The organization’s president, John Feinblatt, told the New York Times “gun safety is a public health crisis.”
Biden has long supported bans on semiautomatic weapons. A recent ABC News report notes Biden “has pledged to push for another ban on the semiautomatic long guns that have only surged in popularity since their return to the market.”
Others fear a Biden administration will ban the importation of assault weapons and weapon components. The Trace notes, “Biden has said he will use his executive authority to ban the importation of all assault weapons by expanding the list of weapons — and weapon components — considered not suitable for sporting purposes.”
Despite the estimated 17 million AR rifles in America, Biden seeks to shut down Second Amendment rights unlike any president before him. Apparently, among Biden’s list of forgotten phrases is the Second Amendment: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
And if you’re concerned about your privacy, Biden’s likely plans include increased tracking regarding firearms owned by Americans. Imagine the government knowing which guns you own, the ammo you buy, and other personal firearm data.
Gun control is only the beginning. Invading privacy regarding American gun ownership serves as a next step in the so-called gun safety public health crisis.
Just as the left redefines “court packing” to include any nominee they don’t like, gun control is now a public health issue that must be regulated by big government. Don’t confuse me with the Constitution!
Even if Republicans retain control of the Senate after Georgia’s January 5 runoff election, executive orders would provide Biden plenty of opportunities to irritate law-abiding gun owners. Recently mentioned plans include plans to end sales of AR-15’s and similar firearms, limiting magazine sizes and regulating current gun owners.
God forbid a Beto O’Rourke-like promise to, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.” And don’t forget, Kamala Harris is among the radical Democrats who have voiced support for mandatory gun buybacks. Though unpopular among many Americans, Biden’s deputy chief of staff Jen O’Malley Dillon supported mandatory buybacks — and even previously worked with O’Rourke.
Her plan includes mandatory buyback of up to 15 to 16 million American firearms! Even socialist Bernie Sanders opposed such widespread unconstitutional actions. Regardless of how the days ahead unfold, American gun owners are in for an unsettling future.
