The DNC Platform Goal is to End the Firearm Industry

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Presumed Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden, called the firearm industry “the enemy” from the debate stage one year ago. Now, the rest of the party plans to follow him in that announcement with the Democratic Platform that lays out an agenda to dismantle the firearm and ammunition industry and destroy Second Amendment rights in America.

The DNC posted the party’s draft platform online, which will be formally adopted during the Milwaukee convention starting Aug. 17. Just two paragraphs of the 80-page document are dedicated to firearms, but not much space is needed when the party is in lockstep. The plan includes:

  • Criminalizing private firearm transfers
  • Disrupting interstate commerce by criminalizing online firearm and ammunition sales
  • Instituting endless “delay” windows for background checks
  • Banning the manufacture and sale of modern sporting rifles
  • Banning the manufacture and sale of standard magazines
  • Enacting licensing schemes to exercise Second Amendment rights
  • Enacting ex parte “red flag” laws to seize guns without legal recourse
  • Mandating home storage requirements under penalty of law
  • Repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act to subject the industry to frivolous lawsuits

In Lockstep

Former Vice President Biden already told America exactly how he feels when it comes to law-abiding citizens demanding their civil rights. Union autoworker Jerry Wayne questioned Biden on his commitment to safeguarding gun rights, only to be the target of Biden’s temper when he jabbed a finger in his face, telling Wayne, “not to be such a horse’s ass,” and telling him he’s “full of sh*t.”

Biden has called for “DNA-enabled smart guns,” despite no such technology existing and the fabled regular so-called “smart gun” was an abject failure. He told voters he would appoint former U.S. Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (D-Texas) as his gun control sheriff, after O’Rourke said “Hell, yes…” to forcibly confiscating modern sporting rifles. Biden answered CNN’s Anderson Cooper when he asked if his federal buyback plan would mean the government would confiscate firearms.

“Bingo,” Biden said. “You’re right, if you have an assault weapon. The fact of the matter is they should be illegal, period.”

Beyond Biden

This isn’t just Biden pushing this radical rights-grabbing agenda. This is the party platform. These are the stated goals. This is truly an agenda. It ignores facts.

For instance, the draft DNC platform wants to close the so-called “Charleston Loophole.” They would do this by giving no timeframe by which the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System would be required to complete a check to a gun sale. Right now, 91 percent of all background checks are completed instantly. Just nine percent are “delayed.” Of those, 88 percent are finalized within three working days and a full 94 percent are completed with 10 days. Congressional gun control advocates would rather shut down background checks and deny sales outright, if they could. We know because instead of following the law, U.S. Senators tried to shut it down during the busiest firearm-buying period on record.

The party’s objective to ban the manufacture and sale of the most-popular selling centerfire rifle isn’t new, but is getting renewed emphasis. President Bill Clinton signed the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban and even the Centers for Disease Control concluded it had no meaningful impact on crime reduction. NSSF recently surveyed likely voters in 18 swing states and more than half responded they wouldn’t support a ban on modern sporting rifles and want politicians to respect individual rights and enforce laws presently on the books.

Radical Agenda

The DNC is listening to their radical base and not the rest of America. That’s why they continue to demonize the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, which denies activist politicians and lawyers from bringing frivolous lawsuits against the industry for the consequences of criminal activity by individuals. They would destroy an industry through litigation that would be akin to taking Ford to court for the crimes of drunk driving.

The platform wasn’t the product of Biden’s thinking, but those propping him up. They’re ramming through a radical agenda to disarm law-abiding Americans when they’re buying firearms in record numbers over concerns of personal safety. This is a platform that is far beyond being out of step with America. It’s tripping over itself.

At what point does the DNC’s anti-gun platform become unConstitutional enough to outright disqualify them from being able to hold office? Surely there must be some legal recourse against them for even proposing such blatantly rights-curtailing platforming.

It stands to reason, there have been millions of guns, ammo and gun components being bought up with more on order awaiting delivery. Millions of guns, ammo and gun components were already in the hands of gun owners. They will pay dearly if they come for the firearms and them getting people to just turn them in is laughable. As it is these buffoons have probably created more black market opportunities than they know.

Sadly, there appears to be an active war on the horizon post 2020 election regardless of which way the doctored count falls. Portland/Seatle et el are merely probing warm ups for post election violence. Distribute your guns,ammo, and supplies to multiple caches that cannot be linked to you personally for later safe retrieval. Keep only enough guns/ammo/supplies with you to defend your home/loved ones in the short term. Post being being red flagged or you are able to initially defend from the looters, then retrieve your first cache and recapture this country.

@pro2A – Careful with that cash. Way Fed is printing money right now you can expect the dollar to drop in coming years. I’ll be surprised if we don’t see inflation putting Carter years to shame – but lasting considerably longer. In fact I’ll be surprised if prices have not doubled by 2025, wouldn’t be surprised if it is much much worse. They will inflate us out of “social security crisis”.

There’s more to Leftist anti-gunners’ actions than just “tripping over themselves.” By fomenting the next civil war, they are signing their own death warrants, along with 80 million other casualties (not my prediction – that’s according to Obama’s own Homeland Security office in 2016!).

There is no such thing as the democrat party anymore, they have turned into a socialism party and they should change the name.
I’m afraid our country is going down the toilet thanks to these crazy ideas they want to put into law.
The founders of the country would think they were still in England under the thumb of an aristocrat and we were all serfs.
Of course some of our republicans sound like democrats and they need replaced, get out and vote, don’t stay home, our country needs to be saved from these anti-gun idiots.

As bad as the china virus is, this is the scary story. We all know what happens when you disarm a nation. Venezuela didn’t last 10 years from the day they elected a socialist president. Chavez first surrounded himself with like minded people who then disarmed the citizenry. Venezuela went from the richest nation in South America to the poorest nation in South America in 7 years. Now the people starve, medical care is almost non-existent, inflation is over 100* per week and the people have no hope for anything better for them and their children. This is what you… Read more »

@Arny – They will only defund local police and sheriffs who might oppose federal mandates. Federal forces will not be restricted at all.

Well, actually I expect they will cut back some on training. They will no longer receive instruction on deescalation, constitutional law or how to serve the people rather than simply following orders.

It’s not quite that straightforward, Finn. Defunding local authorities is undoubtedly the Demoncraps’ next step, yes. But their ability to get the federal military to fully cooperate in destroying America as a Constitutional Republic… is not simply a “given.” The US military is composed of citizens, not paid mercenaries. Military members and their families live (and work and play and worship and… you get the picture) in local society. A significant majority of the military are conservative patriots – 3/4 of them voted for Trump in 2016 – who would have serious practical and philosophical problems with firing on responsible… Read more »

@Joe – Appreciate that. Thanks to all who have and do serve, and to their families as well. This is way the battle of perception is so important. If those who resist tyranny can be portrayed as radicals revolting against a legitimate government, much of the military (+vets+families) could be supportive of whatever means are necessary to put down the insurrection. If public sees resistance as freedom fighters working to protect or civil liberties, preserve or republic and protect the broader public – they will have support. Right now media is making a concerted effort to portray militias as heavily… Read more »

Excellent points, Finn, at least regarding the general public (particularly those without a military background).

But I find it hard to accept that the majority of the currently-serving military would believe that militias ARE “radicals revolting against a legitimate government.” I think they are smarter than that, and are hard to dupe via fake news.

I give the military members a lot of credit for intelligence, and for understanding issues (through study, community involvement, etc). And I constantly pray diligently that I am correct in that presumption.

Companies that make electronic voting machines have been working 24/7 to supply all the democrat cities and states that ordered them.With an electronic voting machine, you can program it to take 50% of the Republican votes and give them to the democrat, or just give ALL votes to the democrat as happened in Philadelphia: Hundreds of thousands of votes 100% for Hillary. Yeah…sure. Electronic voting machines are the death of America. Mail-in voting has NO identity verification.

@DB – I am afraid it won’t take monkey business with the vote. Many will refuse to believe or abide by election results regardless of what they are. If Trump wins we can expect rioting and self destruction in many urban areas. If Biden wins, expect massive noncompliance with far more intense violence coming slower and instigated through tyranny enforcement.
Still hoping we can find a path forward which retains our nation and freedoms without mass bloodshed.

A Trump win will result in massive rioting in every Demoncrap-run big city, requiring intervention by federal troops.

A Biden win will simply reinforce the existing rioting, by teaching rioters that – under Demoncrap rule – criminals will face NO accountability.

Either way [regardless of who “wins” in November] we are absolutely certain to face civil war. Mass bloodshed is unavoidable, because Demoncraps 1) demand it, and 2) mindlessly refuse to change their demand.

@MR – I would expect Kampala to plan to remain VP for just over six years as a way around two term limit. With Biden’s mind gone, he would just be a front while she ran everything and if she takes front slot with less than half a term remaining it doesn’t count toward the limit.
She is arrogant enough to think she could pull it off.

While it is occasionally necessary for a government to have ability to use force. Such application should be limited to instances where someone is actively causing significant harm, and limited to minimum necessary to prevent death and destruction. Gun grabbers seem he’ll bent upon ruling through force. Swallwell, Biden and Roberto have each called for murdering millions, simply to prevent access to harmless-constitutionally protected tools. Such threats could be seen as justification to use such tools in manner intended by the 2nd.

In the 2016 presidential election, only 43% of Republicans voted.
That other 57% were just too busy, sitting on their ever-expanding butts, to be bothered with an easy act to defeat the communist democrats.
NEVER believe Americans will fight the communist democrats when voting is just too much effort.

And in 2020 the GOP has been up to the same old tricks. The people elected Trump because we want change. But the Grand Old Party higher ups have a chokehold on who gets to run from the 50 states. Susan Collins has been pushed through without discussion. She will likely lose this time around.

Perhaps Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas introduction of a resolution on Thursday to ban the Democratic Party or any other political party that supported slavery,not to mention the parties other constitutional violations and treason of which they have self proven,is overdue.
