How, after years of AR15 and similar pistols being ok with or without braces, did we end up with the threat of them being changed to SBRs and maybe AOWs?
If there were any mistaking the significance of the final two U.S. Senate runoff elections in Georgia, it’s now crystal clear. Joe Biden knows it. He cannot carry out his gun control agenda by executive overreach.
Georgians began casting early ballots this week ahead of the Jan. 5 election. Polling margins are close and with a 50-48 Republican advantage in the upper chamber, firearm supporters have almost no wiggle room to protect the Second Amendment from the antigun platform championed by the most antigun presidential ticket in history.
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.
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.
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.
Canada’s gun confiscation plan is getting a chilly reception from America’s northern neighbors. Even the guy Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau put in charge of confiscating more than 2 million firearms from his fellow Canadians is at a loss to explain how it will be done. Joe Biden might want to take notes
