ICYMI: Biden Gun Control Would Choke Gun Sales

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- NEWTOWN, Conn. – NSSF, the trade association for the firearm industry, is shining a spotlight on former Vice President Joe Biden’s radical antigun campaign promise to end gun sales as America knows it. His far-left driven agenda would end Second Amendment rights to lawfully acquire, keep and bear firearms by individuals by dismantling the Constitutionally-protected commerce in arms.

“The single greatest threat to gun rights in America is Joe Biden. The single greatest safeguard against his agenda is an educated and engaged voter in the voting booth,” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel. “Joe Biden blatantly called the firearm industry ‘the enemy’ from the debate stage. His agenda to restrict the lawful means for Americans to exercise their Second Amendment right is a grave danger to our God-given rights and our civil liberties. All Americans must understand the unconstitutional overreach he would enact to obliterate firearm businesses across America.”

The Biden-Harris gun control agenda would stamp out firearm retailers and deny their customers the ability to shop online and purchase firearms, which can only be transferred by the retailer to the customer in a face-to-face transaction after a mandatory FBI background check. A Biden-Harris administration would end the online sale of ammunition and all gun parts, eliminating the right Americans have enjoyed since the founding of our nation to make and assemble their own firearm. They claim to support “gun safety” but want to make it difficult for gun owners to repair their firearms. Lastly, Biden and running mate U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) would ration the exercise of the Second Amendment by restricting law-abiding Americans to purchasing just one firearm a month. This is a constraint of which has never been considered – and would never be tolerated – for any individual right contained in the Bill of Rights.

More than 5 million Americans purchased a firearm for the first time in 2020, based on an NSSF retailer survey. Fully 40 percent of these new gun owners are women. The largest increase of any demographic is among African-Americans, which skyrocketed 58 percent over 2019. To date, more than 13.8 million background checks have been completed for the sale of a firearm, surpassing 2019’s full-year total of nearly 13.2 million.

NSSF strongly opposes these unconstitutional proposals of the Biden-Harris campaign and encourages all Americans to vote on Election Day to protect their Second Amendment rights.

Now, we as gun owners and voters must get off our fat, lazy assets and get out the vote. Quit bitching and exercise your franchise on November 3rd 2020 and send Biden&Harris to the Scrap Heap of history!

And… Biden’s “green” farm policies would choke a farmer’s chicken sales TOO

Don’t be surprised if the Dems win they mandate all the peasants become vegetarians, if not vegans. The elites will make a loophole for themselves. Don’t be surprised if they ban growing your own food which is already being done:

The Dems most likely outlaw hunting and fishing also, a pretext to remove all remaining arms. They only want their peasants to survive.

Trump’s ATF Said NO to Vertical Grips on AR Pistols,  Bump stocks, AA-12 shotguns,  Trump supports Universal Background Checks, raising the age to 21 for ALL gun sales, Supports Red Flag laws that destroys the Bill Of Rights, wants to stop 3-D printing for homemade Firearms and supports the TAPS Act that also destroys due process that he demanded  during his impeachment ( rightly so, I might add) and THE BILL OF RIGHTS….. National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, Pub.L. 112–81. This NDAA contains several controversial sections (see article), the chief being §§ 1021–1022, which affirm provisions authorizing the… Read more »

It will put an end to lawful gun sales. Speaking as someone who spent years on the pointy end of our foreign military sales program to Central America we had a saying: what goes up can also go down. Millions of tons of drugs and contraband run north every year and stopping that flow has made our federales look like the Dutch Boy with finger in dike. Drive up the value of guns, parts, ammo and reloading components and watch the same thing happen. Markets are amazing thing. Even black markets work in accordance with supply and demand.

It is interesting that the 4473 Form requires that you self identify as to your race. It is one of several things on the form that appear to be illegal under the law and specifically the Constitution. But then the entire concept of ATF is illegal…

Yep and that is why I am done buying guns in the store and buy only 80 percenters now and so should everyone else. Later on when they say they all need to be registered or you are a felon, I will be a felon and my perfectly clean record I have maintained for 62 years now will be gone but not because I broke the law, it will be because the government broke the law by changing the law that was legal before making me a felon. Bumpstocks come to mind..

The run on guns, ammo and everything related to firearms will continue to be off the charts.

A large portion of our population has been lulled to sleep by years of public education. They have been convinced that the political classes, their “betters” knew better and can and should run the country, the states, the counties, the cities and towns and the school boards without interference from those who are not “in the know.” So you now see where stifled education and participation have landed us. If the silent and uninvolved majority does not stand up and side with liberty we all might as well move to the Alamo.
