On Tuesday, Stef Feldman, the national policy director of Joe Biden’s presidential campaign, announced in a meeting put on by the Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service, that gun control is at the top of Biden’s list. There will be no vote or democratic process, and like Trump and Obama before him, Biden will use Execute Orders to implement his will.
Feldman pointed out that when he gets in the White House, Biden is planning to “make 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,” adding, “there’s really a lot you can do through guidance and executive action.”
This statement should come as no surprise as Biden has been an outspoken gun-grabber and on his campaign website, he’s stated that he will use executive action to enforce gun control.
On the site, Biden states that he will use executive action to “get weapons of war off our streets.” Calling an AR-style weapon a “weapon of war” is laughable given the fact that Biden, under President Obama, aided in the wholesale slaughter of countless innocent civilians in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, and Somalia — using actual “weapons of war” like drone strikes, hellfire missiles, and sanctions.
Nevertheless, the new boss — who is the same as the old boss, contrary to what many believe — plans to immediately ban the “manufacture and sale of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.”
Joe Biden will enact legislation to once again ban assault weapons. This time, the bans will be designed based on lessons learned from the 1994 bans. For example, the ban on assault weapons will be designed to prevent manufacturers from circumventing the law by making minor changes that don’t limit the weapon’s lethality. While working to pass this legislation, Biden will also use his executive authority to ban the importation of assault weapons.
Biden also plans to force all legal gun owners to register their firearms with the state, or be forced to turn them in, going so far as to issued an ultimatum.
This will give individuals who now possess assault weapons or high-capacity magazines two options: sell the weapons to the government, or register them under the National Firearms Act.
Biden also plans on instituting legislation that will limit how many guns you can purchase. On top of that, he plans on telling you how you can purchase them by banning the “sale of firearms, ammunition, kits, and gun parts online.”
Perhaps one of Biden’s most ominous moves in regard to controlling guns is his push for “smart gun technology” that will require biometrics to fire in an ostensible move to “prevent unauthorized use.” In reality, however, this paves the way for bad actors, including the state and hackers, to be able to control, hack, or essentially turn off your gun, making it a paperweight.
Biden also plans to pick up where Trump left off in regard to extreme risk laws, also called “red flag” laws. Under Biden’s plan, which is similar to the many plans implemented under Trump, family members or law enforcement officials will be able to make claims — many which involve no evidence — allowing a person’s guns to be temporarily taken until that person is declared fit enough to get them back.
But would grabbing guns from people deemed a risk by the state actually have any effect on mass violence? Not likely, nor would the stronger background checks that Biden is also pushing for.
Stronger background checks would have little to no effect on mass shootings as most of the mass shooters acquire their guns legally and pass the background checks. As Reason points out:
The elements of that legislation are mostly window dressing that would do little or nothing to prevent attacks like these. The most frequently mentioned policy, “universal background checks,” is plainly irrelevant to these particular crimes, since both the El Paso shooter and the Dayton shooter purchased their weapons legally, meaning they did not have disqualifying criminal or psychiatric records. Nor do the vast majority of mass shooters, who either passed background checks or could have. Neither requiring background checks for private transfers nor creating “strong background checks,” as President Donald Trump has proposed (perhaps referring to the same policy), would make a difference in such cases.
Citizens who are targeted by these laws will be deemed guilty first and only after their guns are taken, will they have a chance to defend themselves in court. This is the de facto removal of due process.
As Reuters reports, under the legislation, a family member or law enforcement officer could petition a judge to seize firearms from a person they think is a threat to themselves or others. The judge could then hold a hearing without the targeted person being present and grant a temporary order for 14 days.
Under the fifth and fourteenth amendments, due process clauses are in place to act as a safeguard from arbitrary denial of life, liberty, or property by the government outside the sanction of law.
In spite of what officials and the media claim when a person is stripped of their constitutional rights, albeit temporarily, without being given the chance to make their own case based on what can be entirely arbitrary accusations, this is the removal of due process. And, contrary to what Biden wants, it doesn’t work.
We’ve seen this play out before already. Last year, a tragedy unfolded in California as a deranged gunman, Kevin Douglas Limbaugh, walked up on an innocent woman, officer Natalie Corona, pulled out his guns and began shooting her repeatedly until she died. Limbaugh then fired several more shots at others before turning the gun on himself and taking his own life. Had more people been nearby, Limbaugh would’ve likely carried out a mass shooting.
Limbaugh’s case is important to bring up due to the fact that — before he killed a cop — he was subject to California’s “red flag” laws in 2018. Limbaugh was given a high-risk assessment that ordered him to turn in his registered weapons to police, the only one being a Bushmaster AR-15. On November 9, Limbaugh turned in the weapon.
Despite being banned from possessing a weapon, he still obtained one illegally and used it to commit murder. Laws do not stop those willing to break them.
What’s more, there were already laws on the books that should’ve stopped Nikolas Cruz, the murdering psychopath in Parkland Fl, from ever getting a gun as well. But none of them worked.
Citing Cruz as the reason for advocating the erosion of the 2nd Amendment, the anti-gun activists are claiming he should’ve had his guns taken which would have prevented the tragedy. Sadly, however, they are ignoring the fact that he was accused of multiple felonies by multiple people—and should’ve never been able to purchase a gun in the first place—but law enforcement failed to act on any of it. These threats included specifically saying he was going to carry out a mass shooting and threatening to kill individual people.
The reactionary nature of disarming law-abiding Americans because deranged psychopaths kill people is dangerous and only serves to keep the guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens as the above two cases illustrate. Moreover, as Biden attacks, guns, he is forgetting that deranged psychopaths don’t even need guns to cause mass death.
According to a 2015 study, even if all guns were removed from America, in a ten year period, 355 people still would’ve been murdered in mass killings.
From 2006 to 2015, 140 people were murdered by arsonists in mass fires, 104 were stabbed in mass stabbings, and 92 people were beaten to death in mass killings. To reiterate, these are deaths in which four or more people were killed.
“People sufficiently enraged to commit such crimes may also be motivated to find other ways,” criminologist James Alan Fox of Northeastern University points out.
Despite all this information to the contrary, the left led by Biden and the right led by Trump seems hell-bent on further eroding the rights of the 99.9999999 percent of the innocent people who are not murderous psychopaths. And all of it will be and has been “legal” — due process and innocence be damned.
Biden can write all the Executive Orders he wants.
I will simply ignore them.
The only law I recognize is in the US Constitution. Its call our 2nd Amendment, which can not be impinged. period
I also do not believe he can shut down the sale of AR’s or Hi-cap Mags either. Again impinge
Ever the Rat Roberts will have to shut him down.
This is all BS for show – never gonna happen.
I also will not register my guns – They got lost somehow.
It’s INFRINGED lol
BIDEN for GITMO. All Biden will be able to do daily post election, is choose between a cheese sandwich or a Bologna sandwich, while he is chained to the wall in GITMO awaiting his trial for treason. Permanent Prison is a B!tch.
Wasn’t it Trump who said, “Get the guns first….”
No, I’m not a biden fan, just putting things in perspective, and interested in the truth.
People are fools if they give up the means to resist the growing – and about to take a big step upward – totalitarianism. The collectivists got a big boost from the SCOTUS, and will proceed with glee. It’s all been done before.
Come get ‘em
Come get ‘em
Prepare for WAR
Does anyone connected to this blog read the news? Biden ran up the white flag about issuing an Executive Order that banned “assault rifles” and admitted he had no power to issue one.
When Kneepads Harris said that she would issue an executive order banning “assault rifles” during the primaries, that was clearly posturing to an uneducated base, which is to say, stupid, gullible Democrats.
The person who disclosed this “news” to the public was likely ordered to keep their mouth shut. The Dem. politicians, and the minions in the JoBi Admin. know this and many other policies that are in the works will not go over well. There will be many policies and programs initiated in his Admin. that will diminish our few remaining rights and freedoms. They’re going to hit it hard and make up for lost time. Everyone must understand and remember; these Marxists ideologues don’t care about cost, they don’t care about what’s right or wrong, not even what is legal or illegal. They don’t care about what is good or bad for the American people. Even the concept of morality is considered an unnecessary hinderance. ALL THAT REALLY MATTERS IS WHAT CAN BE USED TO ACQUIRE POWER AND KEEP IT, including useful idiots. After power is acquired and consolidated, the means usually becomes dead weight because it no longer serves any purpose, and is disposed.
For the rest of us, if we acquiesce, if we surrender, if it isn’t stopped, this will be the end of our rights. Our descendants will not have the freedoms we still enjoy. These authoritarians mean business, they are earnestly intent on taking away our rights, for good.
They lied, cheated, and stole an election, with no moral compunction. They don’t even care if we know it. All that matters now is they will have power. I cast my vote honestly, and in good faith, believing my vote would count, it turns out this was wrong. They illegally silenced my voice, my right to lawfully participate in choosing our President was destroyed by discounting my vote. Every avenue of legal recourse is being tried to address the grotesque scale of election fraud and corruption, so far with no success. There is no one and no official entity that will right the injustice. Other than Pres. DT, no one will represent the 72 million defrauded Americans. We plainly see that we are the hated “deplorables”, that we must be marginalized, that we must be negated by any means so to not have our voice heard, that we do not have representation. Therefore, I, with 72 million other citizens, have no obligation to cooperate, obey, or render loyalty to the State – none.
I will be traveling to Europe to visit my wife’s relatives, and will probably see a lot of people. While there, I will trash the Dems. and JoBi presidency and tell them what really happened.
this is the best day of your life for those that can recognize
Yeah, No, don’t think so. I think I’d rather be providing a vitamin-rich Pb diet for those in need.
No can/will do
We now see how the SC bent over and took it… They will bend you over now with Gropping Joes ban on Guns and Mags.
Unless Divine Intervention happens in the next few Weeks….
Secession or Comply…
One of the Banned Books in America, “Turner Diaries”
Some parts of the story is coming our way.
“The Turner Diaries” is not banned. It’s available everyday . Just look for it. Not recommending it. But it’s available. Just like Mein Kampf.
The gun dealer of narco mexican drug cartels, human and sex traffickers, and international terrorist rings the communist organization known as the BATFE is targeting Polymer 80 and customers of Polymer 80.
He’s also going to grant amnesty right out of the gate to 40,000,000-50,000,000 illegal alien democrat/communist voters. It could be even more than that.
Several hundred thousand are already on their way to invade the USA from Honduras again.
It is a takeover and the left is working on behalf of foreign enemies providing them with aide and comfort bringing all kinds of foreign hostiles into the USA.
Just wait for the communist propaganda in themocking bird MSM they’re going to start ramping up their lies against patriotic Americans and the 2A for the sheeple and usefil idiots to feast on.
To the idiot leftists, apparently you have successfully cheated another leftist into the Presidency. The leftist ideal of disarming law-abiding CITIZENS will have the unintended consequence of more violent crime. Criminals wearing hoodies & Covid-masks (meaning they will be hard to identify) will choose victims that are less likely to present a problem. Since leftists (Demonrats) rarely anticipate those unintended consequences, they will whine like piglets when they are the frequent victims. Leftists may no longer look for help from me. You sold Constituional values down the river, now stew in the mess you made.
Attacks against me or mine will be met with severe retribution. We have wild critters around here that need to eat.
Yesterday, reports were circulated saying that Sleepy Joe Biden has been recorded admitting in a Zoom meeting with Democrats that he has no authority to issue an executive order that bans “assault rifles.” How can he possibly walk away from that? Explain.
Does anyone read the news here?
Therefore, it is of massive importance that Republicans keep control of the Senate. HOLD GEORGIA!
I can explain that. It is very unlikely that any EO on its own will stand up in court to reclassify Semi-automatics as NFA firearms. Pay attention to the word “LEGISLATE” it would take Congress to pass such a law. However, given the make up of Congress, even with a Republican majority hold in the Senate ( still up for grabs) it would be possible to enact restrictions on Semi-Automatics and magazines.
national security order will take effect soon military will conduct many arrests and imprisonments of the judges lawyers congress state officials etc and restore order. biden/harris on all channels (this is not a test) live arrests.
Hell no!SINCE THE LEFT STOLE THE ELECTION BIDEN AND HIS PEOPLE ARE NOW ENEMIES OF WE THE PEOPLE.
It still to this day Amazes me that we worry and fret about Unconstitutional laws being passed that infringe on our rights , We all need to remind ourselves that , Our founders wrote the Constitution / Bill of rights with the disclaimer that “Any and ALL” laws that are contrary , Are NULL AND VOID . Where we all screwed up is failing to heed their call to never let the Government build a standing Army , Not only have we let them do that , We the People , payed for it . Shame On Us , The third Box of resistence is now looking to be the only way out , Lest we let the Devine Republic slip away . The Bible says we need to be on our knees and ask for forgivness and turn away from our sins [ Abortion among others ] and he will hear our prayers from heaven and heal our land !!! Dont let it happen “Boys” ! GODSPEED
Interesting, Biden will be responsible for people open carrying AR15s in complete and utter defiance of his authority. There will be more guns on the streets than at any given time in history. Taking someones firearm will be a life or death activity.
Oddly enough, people for the first time will be exercising there 2nd ammendment rights, at exactly the time when its been deemed ended.
If you moderate the comments at all it means you are worthless leftists. Non whites and heebs are what is wrong and sites like yours pretend to be about free speech but then you don’t allow the truth about what is really wrong.
White people built the USA for white people. Non whites shooting each other all the time is allowing gun grabs to happen. If you can’t or won’t correlate the two because of emotional reasons, all cries of racism are simply emotional cries to ignore the truth, Then you are a leftist and the enemy of free people.
Sir you need to study history. The American revolution stated in Masonic lodges, and that included Hebrews.
One example is Moses Meyer who’s house in Norfolk VA stands today. That Hebrew was a huge supporter of the revolution and friend of George Washington.
Here are some others, including Chayim Salomon who donated 200,000 dollars to the Continentals ( then silver Spanish pieces of eight), Dr. Philip Moses Russell, George Washington’s surgeon; and Colonel Solomon Bush, adjutant general of the Pennsylvania militia, Jonas Philips ( blockade runner).
Most Orthodox Hebrews are Trump supporters. Religious people tend to be more Politcally conservative.
It is the Reform and non- relegious SJW types that deny the Bible ( Torah), they are flat out not considered “Jewish” untill they repent ( start keeping the Sabbath). Reform ( etc.) have made such a mokery of Gods laws their converts are not accepted, and with succesive generations of Patriliniage
and phoney conversions are not accepted into the Orthodox community for marriage, or count for a prayer service ( unless they convert!).
I know this is likely more than you wanted to know about us. But there is a heap of misinformation put out about the Talmud on the internet that can be cleared up by just looking at what it says in context of the discussion.
Shoot blue city electrical substations not people. The left will be gone forever in a matter of months.
The Founding Fathers of the United States of America gave future generations of America The RIGHT to overthrow a tyrannical government should one rear up its ugly head and set itself into place. Now, I believe that is about to take place on 20 JAN 2021 with the inauguration of Communists Biden as President and Harris as Vice President. Should their position place them as Heads of a Communist Regime, then a call to arms must be made to ALL American Patriots to set their eyes on Washington, D.C. and overthrow them and their cohorts in Kongress. And OVERTHROW by any and ALL means necessary. After this has been accomplished, a Provisional Government can be in place until a free election under the eyes of the U.S. Military can take place. All those responsible or siding with the Communists regardless of stature or position must face Justice by Military Tribunals across the U.S.A. and accept their Guilt or Innocence after the Trial concludes. The Charge would be of Sedition and or Treason. The Penalty for which if found GUILTY is Death by Hanging or Firing Squad. Regardless if Ten Thousand, One Hundred Thousand or One Million be charged and tried, the Penalty is equal to ALL found GUILTY.
When I started to look at it in that manner I realize that we have 68% of the homicides are done by firearms in which we have 18,000 to 20,000 plus federal, state, and local laws. With 32% non-firearms are Persona non Grata. What we need to do is to break the cycle of dynamics violence or the lack of moral control and self-esteem. One of the interesting things I found out when you look at the communities of Africa decent they commit 50% of the homicides (FBI) where in the Asian communities the homicide rate is almost a goose egg. And which gun control law stop the seral killer Ted Bundy and how many did he killed? If we had just stayed in the British Empire maybe, we would have been better off. Using the “common sense” is very ambiguous as the Volstead Act (the National Prohibition Act) was common sense. BTW what ever happen to the Brady Law I thought that was the magic elixir for gun control.
We are reaching that moment when the rubber hits the road,
Since the SCOTFUS thinks we are “moot”
I think pretty much anything anyone in gov says /does/mandates is also MOOT!
Hey Kula, Hows tthe Island doing> I hear no tourist traffic, Food shortages? I know you are prepped, back into farming? Cheers. We patriots are not alone, there are more of us than them. Army of 1
Biden will have a very hard time making guns illegal- Oh, that pesky constitution! BUT there is a lot he can do to make felons out of gun owners. Mandatory registration, putting the pressure on with gun buy backs, taxing the crap out of everything/anything gun related, etc. Sadly though, our guns are only glorified paperweights without ammo. Through regulations put into place in the Obama administration, we were already seeing bumps in the road…fast forward to today and we clearly have an ammo shortage. We always have increased sales at election time, but this year it is off the charts. So many are rightfully concerned about what we may be facing and talks of civil war are commonplace now. Ammo shelves are empty and prices are increasing every week. New gun owners this year are scrambling to get ANY ammo for their gun, much less stockpile… Too late for that if you’re not already in the game. The Biden admin knows that they can hit the ammo market and have a real, immediate impact. Stockpile no matter the cost. Forget the fun gifts this year for Christmas- I’m buying all practical gifts that center around gear and preps….and ammo:) Stay safe y’all~
Ghostgunner, and their respect of corporatist, intellectual property, and limited range of plastic receivers, and clips, and plastic, flare-gun-like contraptions, were promoted heavily by tftp and it’s marketing affiliates, either for the fad or the money or the diy. I am not sure which.
But, I was banned from some social media platforms, for saying the following:
A digital photo can be used to reproduce a functioning padlock key, in a triaxial milling device, used to make metal parts, as in the literal gun factory.
I didn’t do it.
I just think that corporatist yuppies and their spoiled kids are convinced of the concepts of social status and artificial scarcity.
You are not going to learn digital rendering or where anything you want actually comes from.
So, you will always have to rely on Uncle Sniffy, VP WAP, or their Stalinist, Republican counterparts.
I am willing to die protecting my God given 2A right. They had better be willing to die trying to take it away!
Stay The Course…..BA.
well the new china territory will be only have weapons for the military and some elites and rest will be like in mainland china slave workers
What will be most interesting is the Fake Dems keep saying get the weapons of war off of our streets.
They will be responsible for the largest wholesale open carrying of semiautomatic rifles ever known…
