Joe Biden didn’t take long in declaring a national health crisis to usher in emergency health epidemic gun control measures. With more than a month still left before he takes the Oath of Office, he laid the groundwork to seize on a “public health crisis” to push a gun grab.
President-elect Joe Biden had a rare moment of clarity when it comes to gun control. He’s got a really big obstacle, called the Constitution.
President-elect Biden knows he’s not a king. He can’t rule over subjects. He must govern his fellow citizens and the document that gives him that authority also limits him from unilaterally grabbing up rights from American citizens – also known as “the People.”
The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed – where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.
This isn’t surprising. With a record-shattering 19.1 million background checks conducted for the sale of a firearm so far this year, Americans are taking ownership of their gun rights. Layering on gun control laws isn’t what voters are looking for.
The gun debate in America will soon enter a new chapter with a Democrat in the White House after four years under President Donald Trump in which gun control advocates developed a long wish list for reform amid a spate of large-scale mass killings in places like Las Vegas, El Paso and Parkland, Florida.
But any hope that Joe Biden will usher in a new era of restrictions on firearms is highly unlikely because of the same polarization in Washington that has tripped up similar efforts under past administrations.
President-elect Joe Biden is taking an early turn to the far left with his nomination of California Attorney General Xavier Becerra to take over the Department of Health and Human Services.
Georgia’s runoff elections are a national affair. Gun control champions Stacey Abrams and Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms are working overtime to crank up Democratic voter turnout. If both Ossoff and Rev. Warnock win, it will guarantee a Biden-Harris administration will be able to move on their radical antigun agenda. That agenda includes demolishing the entire firearm industry, imposing confiscation and bans on modern sporting rifles, instituting gun registration schemes and more. Two votes stand in the way of Sen. Chuck Schumer from making good on his promise to take Georgia and then “we change America.” Those votes belonging to Senators Perdue and Loeffler.
he Second Amendment Foundation has filed a motion with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, seeking an injunction against a section of California’s penal code that prohibits young adults, ages 18-20 from purchasing or acquiring firearms.
Recently The Washington Post published an article depicting the rampant organized crime crisis in Mexico. There is no question that the crime and violence fueled by drug cartels in our southern neighbor are major problems for Mexico, the United States and for the global community. However, the authors make a mistake typical of the gun control crowd; they blame the firearm rights enshrined in the U.S. Constitution for the problems in Mexico.
Back on November 23rd several U.S. Senators sent a letter to ATF and to the Department of Justice critical of ATF’s new stance on AR-styled pistols and arm braces. While it may be questionable as to how much effect this letter may have on ATF’s current position on AR pistols, the fact that the letter was sent is significant. It would seem that a regulatory agency can’t just give everyone a different answer on a tech question, after all.
