Biden Website Reveals Alarming Gun Control Agenda

Joe Biden and His Gift for Gaffes
Joe Biden and His Gift for Gaffes

U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden has plans for American gun owners that are spelled out in a 3,100-word agenda found on his campaign website that includes a ban on so-called “assault weapons,” background checks on all gun sales and transfers, restrictions on the number of firearms someone can buy in a month, “safe storage” and enough other red tape to turn the right to keep and bear arms into a heavily-regulated privilege.

This coming Saturday, April 25, “Team Joe” is planning a “Service Outreach Unity Leadership (S.O.U.L.) of the Nation” event to recognize the efforts of “our communities’ heroes.”
A message on his website says, “When Joe launched our campaign a year ago this Saturday, he said that this election is about more than just politics – it’s about the soul of this country. That is true now more than ever before.”

The former vice president, now said to be considering a female running mate since he is virtually assured of winning the nomination—which a majority of Democrats appear to favor, according to a recent Rasmussen survey—insists he will follow “constitutional, common-sense gun safety policies.”

Here are some of the highlights found in his campaign literature:

  • Put America on the path to ensuring that 100% of firearms sold in America are smart guns. Biden believes we should work to eventually require that 100% of firearms sold in the U.S. are smart guns.
  • End the online sale of firearms and ammunitions. Biden will enact legislation to prohibit all online sales of firearms, ammunition, kits, and gun parts. (This could be a direct threat to such places as Midway and Brownells, Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s.–ed.)
  • Ban the manufacture and sale of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Joe Biden will enact legislation to once again ban assault weapons, his agenda says. This time, the bans will be designed based on lessons learned from the 1994 bans. For example, the ban on assault weapons will be designed to prevent manufacturers from circumventing the law by making minor changes that don’t limit the weapon’s lethality. While working to pass this legislation, Biden will also use his executive authority to ban the importation of assault weapons.
  • Regulate possession of existing assault weapons under the National Firearms Act. Currently, the National Firearms Act requires individuals possessing machine-guns, silencers, and short-barreled rifles to undergo a background check and register those weapons with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Due to these requirements, such weapons are rarely used in crimes. As president, Biden will pursue legislation to regulate possession of existing assault weapons under the National Firearms Act.
  • Buy back the assault weapons and high-capacity magazines already in our communities. Biden will also institute a program to buy back weapons of war currently on our streets. This will give individuals who now possess assault weapons or high-capacity magazines two options: sell the weapons to the government, or register them under the National Firearms Act.
  • Reinstate the Obama-Biden policy to keep guns out of the hands of certain people unable to manage their affairs for mental reasons, which President Trump reversed. In 2016, the Obama-Biden Administration finalized a rule to make sure the Social Security Administration (SSA) sends to the background check system records that it holds of individuals who are prohibited from purchasing or possessing firearms because they have been adjudicated by the SSA as unable to manage their affairs for mental reasons. But one of the first actions Donald Trump took as president was to reverse this rule. President Biden will enact legislation to codify this policy. (Critics of this policy say it went after military veterans who had problems with finances.)

There is much more in Biden’s scheme, such as holding firearms manufacturers responsible for illegal acts committed by people using one of their firearms. Another provision will “Give states incentives to set up gun licensing programs…to require individuals to obtain a license prior to purchasing a gun.”

It’s all spelled out in detail, in 3,167 words, and there is nothing in this narrative about Biden “hoping” to do anything. At several points, the document says “Biden will.”

To accomplish this, he’s going to want a running mate who agrees with, and will adhere to, his policies. The recent Rasmussen survey, conducted April 12-13 with a margin of sampling error at +/- 3 percentage points, says 61 percent of likely Democratic voters “believe it is important for Biden’s running mate to be a woman or person of color, with 35% who say it is Very Important.”

Does that mean most Democrats are more interested in political correctness than they are in performance? Here’s an excerpt from the Rasmussen report:

“But when given a list of seven top potential vice presidential nominees, Democrats rate most about the same. The possible candidates and their levels of support are: Bernie Sanders (15%), Kamala Harris (14%), Elizabeth Warren (13%), Amy Klobuchar (12%), Stacey Abrams (11%), Michael Bloomberg (7%) and Pete Buttigieg (5%). Thirteen percent (13%) of Democrats prefer someone else, and 11% are undecided.” By no small coincidence, Klobuchar is being touted as Biden's “safe pick” in a Washington Examiner piece.

In its introduction, the Biden doctrine emphasizes that he “has taken on the National Rifle Association (NRA) on the national stage and won – twice. In 1993, he shepherded through Congress the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, which established the background check system that has since kept more than 3 million firearms out of dangerous hands. In 1994, Biden – along with Senator Dianne Feinstein – secured the passage of 10-year bans on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. As president, Joe Biden will defeat the NRA again.”

Perhaps “victory” means different things to different people. Since 1993, the NRA reportedly raised its membership by at least 50 percent, and that era has seen the emergence of other rights organizations as powerhouse groups, specifically the Second Amendment Foundation, Firearms Policy Coalition, Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, and various state-level organizations. Millions of gun owners were energized during the Clinton and Obama administrations when Biden and his Capitol Hill colleagues went after gun rights.

Indeed, it was a SAF case—McDonald v. City of Chicago—that made it to the U.S. Supreme Court in 2010, providing the opportunity to incorporate the Second Amendment to the states via the 14th Amendment. That opened the legal floodgates allowing dozens of legal actions challenging the kinds of gun laws Biden and his contemporaries favor.

Near the top of his agenda, Biden says he will “Get weapons of war off our streets.” There are all kinds of proposals to make it more difficult for law-abiding gun owners to remain “law-abiding.”

There is little, if anything, about locking up criminals. Instead, one finds this:

“There are proven strategies for reducing gun violence in urban communities without turning to incarceration. For example, Group Violence Intervention organizes community leaders to work with individuals most likely to commit acts of gun violence, express the community’s demand that the gun violence stop, and connect individuals who may be likely perpetrators with social and economic support services that may deter violent behavior.”

On the heels of a mass shooting rampage in Canada, a nation with some of the strictest gun laws in the hemisphere—laws the gun prohibition lobby would like this country to emulate, were it not for the pesky Second Amendment—Biden’s gun control agenda is unlikely to win any converts in the firearms community, and it will give U.S. gun owners plenty to think about as November draws closer.

AN IMPOSSIBLE CHOICE! With all the bad choices, incompetence, and abuses of the Office of President and the Constitution committed by Trump and the Republicans in Congress, one could believe that a resurgence of the Democratic party is probable in the next election. BUT, now the Democratic Party is forcing us to choose between Trump (a wannabe dictator) and the Republicans (wannabe Politburo) or to give up our 2nd Amendment Rights!. The current Republican administration’s actions have already set the stage for additional abuses, and now, the Democratic Party is planning on using those “established excesses” and saying: “Hell, yes,… Read more »

“The RIGHT of the people to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.” It’s a RIGHT, not a privilege! A grade school kid can mane sense of this. Too bad some politicians have forgotten their oath to the nation, the people and the constitution. That is treason and tyranny in my book. We all know the penalty for either is death. Either the courts are going to stand up for the constitution or the people will have to.

Arm up, carry on.

Biden and the DNC will lose this November and he will retire. They will lose because they have adopted unconstitutional extremism by knowingly violating Article VI within the US Constitution. We will vote them out with our wallets and our march to the ballot box! We are fighting for our freedoms, and we are in the right, and they are in the wrong. We must un-apologetically press on and fight this unconstitutional evil that threatens the very foundation of our free republic and everything for which it stands!

Biden is an idiot. He’s neither intelligent nor informed. Like most democrats, Biden has an agenda to destroy the Constitution from the inside. He has shown his arrogance and that his lifetime of being a career politician proves the longer they hang around the more corrupt they become. Think he’ll take your guns? He said he would and that is the only truth that will ever come out of his mouth.

Just another political Anti-Constitutionalist, Oath breaking career criminal which has endangered the American public, his history has shown this. (Let Us Not Forget the Barry Soetoro Reign…) Anti-constitutionalist’s sense of morality is situational, based on incident and emotion, instead of rooted in God’s word and law. Anti-constitutionalist’s stand for nothing. The situation determines their support for an issue and their emotions rule, not reason and rationality. Moreover, they recognize the contradiction, but still cling to their situational justice. Situational justice is the tool of dictators, tyrants, despots, and unjust, unrighteous monarchs. It has no place in a free constitutional republic.… Read more »

Well, heck, folks! That’s our whole problem right there: We haven’t “..express(ed) the community’s demand that the gun violence stop…” I mean, that’ll certainly stop the whole problem of mentally unstable people shooting up schools and restaurants. Why didn’t we think of it sooner?

The Communist agenda of the sex criminal, Joseph Biden is very clear. He would do everything in his power to disarm every American citizen so that they would not have any means to resist his desire and attempt to institute a Centrally Control Communist Police State Government in the United States. If he is elected, this would mean America’s Second Civil War.

The so called democrats come after the guns because they wish to control the people completely. However, if they cannot control the guns they cannot control citizens of these United States of America. That control is in the form of registration and then confiscation. Furthermore, they wish to destroy our economy and see this covid-19 as a paved pathway for them to do just that. What do you think they mean when the covid-19 is an opportunity for them to make changes to this government which they desire?

Candidates unconstitutional Dictating for the soul purpose of the control of the American People should make them ineligible to “SERVE US” in any office! Breaking the Constitutional oath of office! I will never understand people voting to have rights taken away. It’s obvious to me that if God forbid Joe Biden got in office the Vice President will be the one to watch out for because he has already shown the ability for them to invoke the action concerning a President that is unfit to make rational decisions. Either way it’s going to be against our Freedoms!

Elections have consequences. It was “Russian Collusion” and the impeachment farce that brought to power such clowns as we now see in governor’s mansions and the congress. The leftist majority in the House can be directly attributed to that misinformation campaign. An effective counter attack combines a Constitutional argument in favor of rights while at the same time putting “Communist Chinese Collusion” on the front burner thus burning the leadership of the left. Feinstein, Pelosi, Biden are all wholly owned by the Communist Chinese. Make that the theme.

Most refuse to even see his obviously advancing state of dementia, which would not bode well combined with his own dictatorial aspirations.

@WB – Some imagined futures cannot be unseen. I see truly terrifying possibilities for our future. Election campaigns typically focus on either firing up the base for high turnout or on swaying centrist-independents to swing in their direction. For 2020 the democrats all seem to be taking independent voters for granted and develop ever more extreme plans. Meanwhile Trump appears to delight in playing to their worst fears about him. Not saying he could possibly ever win their approval – but appreciate if he at least appeared to be attempting to entice centrists a little. As for saying stupid stuff,… Read more »
