Biden, is moving on American gun ownership, as all communists do. No doubt he will soon be replaced by Harris who is even more anti-gun. Will the deplorables take this? After all they followed Trump in letting the election be stolen, so maybe they will surrender their guns, and become urban prey? After all, if it is the law, even if the law says, you die, it must be obeyed by conservatives who live law and order. Never fear, their reward will be in heaven.
“The Biden Administration is working on a plan to circumvent gun rights by re-instituting a policy that allows banks to choose who they do business with.
The loophole is a throwback to the Obama-era Justice Dept. policy known as Operation Choke Point, which created an end run around the Second Amendment by forcing lenders to abide by costly legal risk assessments before banking with clients.
The result is banks could choose not to lend to “high-risk” businesses including pawn shops and gun stores if a risk assessment showed doing so could cause financial harm.
During his tenure in office, President Donald Trump attempted to reverse Operation Choke Point policies, even issuing a Fair Access rule during his final days in office.
However, the Biden administration late last month paused publication of the rule, set to take effect April 1, until his Comptroller of the Currency has an opportunity to review it under the guise of ensuring an “orderly transition.”
If the comptroller refuses to publish the Trump order, as will likely be the case, Operation Choke Point could make a comeback, as explained by Real Clear Politics:
It is not difficult to conclude that many high-level members of the Biden administration prefer politicized lending, as a short journey down memory lane illustrates. Remember Operation Choke Point? That was the blatant effort by the Obama administration to exclude several legal industries from the banking system. This clearly was illegal and unconstitutional, having been based upon no law or any other kind of legal authority; it simply reflected the political biases of the senior Obama decisionmakers.
There is no evidence that then-Vice President Biden opposed it, and such arbitrary exercises of power are constrained by no obvious limiting principle. Any industry can become a target, and it is obvious that the discriminatory practices inexorably will expand over time as new bureaucrats and politicians come to occupy the various desks and offices, imposing their own views of what is good. The efficient allocation of capital? Who in the Beltway has an incentive to care about that?
“President Joe Biden reportedly won’t rule out using executive orders to crackdown on Americans’ constitutionally protected Second Amendment rights. The revelation was made during a White House press conference on Tuesday in response to a statement that Biden put out last week calling for banning semi-automatic firearms in addition to other gun control measures, the Daily Wire reported.
“What is your timetable for action on what the president calls common sense measures?” a reporter asked White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, “And what’s the realistic hope that you have this will pass both houses?
“Well, we haven’t proposed a package at this point,” Psaki responded. “So it’s hard for me to make a prediction about its likelihood of passing. But I will say that the president is somebody throughout his career who has advocated for smart gun safety measures. He is not afraid of standing up to the NRA. He’s done it multiple times and won on background checks and a range of issues. And it is a priority to him on a personal level, but I don’t have a prediction for you, or preview for you on a timeline of a package, and certainly not what it will look like and how it goes through Congress.”
The US deplorables are going to get what they do not deserve, but get it, they will.
