Biden’s Gun Control By John Steele
Biden’s gun control executive order is chipping away at American gun rights. The real move will come from the stacking of the Supreme Court with millions of Leftist judges, who will find that the reference to bearing arms in the Second Amendment, was merely about wearing short-sleeved shirts. “Arms” does not mean that common sense thinks, only what leftist judges say it does!
“President Joe Biden put forward executive gun controls Thursday to fight what he called “an epidemic” of gun crime across the country.
CNN quoted Biden saying, “Gun violence in this country is an epidemic.” He went so far as to describe it as “an international embarrassment.”
The president then put forward executive actions which included initiatives in four areas Breitbart News highlighted on Wednesday. Those were new restrictions on “ghost guns,” a push for red flag laws, recategorization of AR-15 pistols, and DOJ-led research into gun trafficking.
As for red flag laws, Biden said, “We know red flag laws can stop mass shooters before they can act out their violent plans.” He then directed the Justice Department to publish model red flag legislation that states can adopt.
He did not mention Colorado has had a red flag law since January 1, 2020, but it did nothing to hinder, much less prevent, the March 22, 2021, Boulder attack.
Biden also addressed AR-pistols with stabilizer braces, saying, “We want to treat pistols, modified with stabilizing braces, with the seriousness they deserve.” He suggested having a stabilizing brace on a pistol “makes that pistol a hell of lot more accurate” and “more lethal.”
He added, “Modifications to firearms that make them more lethal should be subject to the National Firearms Act.””
“Joe Biden promised to do it and he has finally delivered. Today, the cognitively declining President of the United States signed a number of Executive Orders allegedly designed to “curb gun violence” but actually designed to destroy the Second Amendment and the Bill of Rights.
In the process, as Robert Wheeler writes at The Organic Prepper, Biden has turned many Americans into felons with a stroke of his pen.
As Ben Unruh reports, Second Amendment Foundation founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb said:
"Nobody from the Biden administration has reached out to us or any other rights organization to my knowledge, which certainly clarifies Biden’s approach to firearms regulation," adding that “he came into office talking about unity, but he just declared war on tens of millions of law-abiding gun owners who have committed no crimes."
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) summed things up succinctly in a social media statement.
“President Biden wants to let violent criminals go free but take guns from law-abiding citizens,”
As The Epoch Times' Zachary Stieber detailed earlier, President Joe Biden’s administration is taking action to stop the proliferation of so-called ghost guns and push states to adopt “red flag” legislation.
"Enough, enough, enough," Biden, a Democrat, said in a Rose Garden event before announcing the orders.
He also claimed that the orders he'll sign won't impact Americans' rights to own guns under the Second Amendment.”
