Joe Biden's RADICAL
FIREARM AGENDA
Seeks To Undo Our Unique
American Freedoms
L
ess than a year into the Biden-Harris administration,
there is already a sense that America is at a tipping
point. At the fulcrum of this precarious balance is the
Second Amendment.
If the administration gets its way, what makes America
not just unique, but better, stronger and freer than any
nation in the world will be subsumed into an undifferentiated
globalist collective driven by elites who exist above and
apart from the rules and deprivations they impose on others.
And nothing makes the United States more unique and
free than the right to keep and bear arms.
Joe Biden has declared his political opposition-
particularly those who own guns and supported President
Donald Trump- " dangerous right-wing extremists. " He has
activated the combined weight of the federal bureaucracy
against them ... against you.
His administration is purging political dissenters from
government and military service and turning America's law
enforcement and intelligence apparatus inward to root out
non-conforming political opinion.
The Biden administration is abetted in these efforts by
virtually every sector of an increasingly transnational elite
that includes legacy media, academia, the entertainment
industry and digital communication. Their chief commitments
are to international markets and supranational governing
bodies, to which they believe the American identity must
give way.
This is the agenda. The means to achieve it include the
most radical and transformative anti-gun campaign any of us
working in Washington, D.C., has ever seen.
The big hammer of fundamental change is, of course,
federal legislation.
I've written extensively about Biden's plans for federal
gun control; a short recap should make the point.
He wants to ban most semi-automatic rifles, including the
most popular center-fire rifle in America, the AR-15. And what
of the 20 million or more already in circulation? Those he would
register, tax or order surrendered, perhaps with governmentcalculated
compensation or maybe simply by forcible removal.
For whatever guns he allowed you to keep, Biden would
limit magazine capacity and register and tax non-conforming,
previously acquired magazines. The law of self-defense
already only protects those who are forced into action by an
aggressor and who respond proportionately to the danger.
Who would want to further handicap the ability of innocent
people to resist unlawful aggression?
Joe Biden would.
Biden additionally wants law-abiding gun manufacturers
and dealers to be held financially responsible for the acts of
criminals who misuse their products and for the industry that
enables a meaningful Second Amendment to be treated as a
common nuisance by the courts.
He wants every transfer, exchange, loan, trade or gift
of a firearm to be presumptively subject to federal vetting,
mandatory fees and documentation in government records.
He and his " experts " know the criminals won't follow these
rules, but that's not really the point. Having a paper trail of
every legally owned firearm in America is the point.
We all know where that eventually leads.
Those examples are far from the only prohibitory guncontrol
laws that Joe Biden supports, but they would be
enough to turn the fundamental RIGHT to keep and bear
arms into a European-style privilege reserved for the few,
the wealthy and the connected.
