NSSF: Life for New Gun Owners Under ‘President Biden’

By Elizabeth McGuigan

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- A recent survey in Texas suggested that new gun owners are more likely to support former Vice President Joe Biden than President Donald Trump in this year’s election. There is little evidence to support this, particularly as polls have been so widely off the mark when it comes to support for President Trump and when it comes to gun ownership in general. In both instances, individuals may be more reluctant to share their political support or gun ownership status with strangers on the phone, due at least in part to a desire for privacy and a fear of the kind of shaming that is all too common in our society.

But let’s say this were true: that new gun owners, a large share of whom are women or minorities, are more likely to vote for Biden in November. Despite taking the step to exercise their Second Amendment rights and legally purchase a firearm, these individuals may be making their voting decisions based on a whole host of other policy issues.

Protecting their newly-secured firearm and the freedom that allowed them to purchase it may not be something they have considered. That is a mistake.

Many new gun owners were surprised at just how difficult it is to purchase a firearm in their state. Any new owners who purchased their firearms at a retailer were required at a minimum to submit to an FBI background check and to abide by the federal prohibitions as well as a myriad of state and local regulations such as waiting periods or limits on what types of firearms they were allowed to purchase.

Under “President Biden,” these existing laws and regulations would be multiplied and expanded in an attempt to squeeze the right to bear arms out of existence. If he had his way, the most popular type of rifle – the Modern Sporting Rifle (MSR) – would be banned, despite the fact the last time they were banned, crime didn’t go down. The MSRs that people already own would be “bought back” or forcibly registered under the onerous law that regulates items like fully-automatic machine guns.

The former vice president doesn’t think that you, as a gun owner, should be able to decide the amount of ammunition in your handgun, so your capacity would be arbitrarily limited according to what he thinks is appropriate. Forget about the fact that this limit will do nothing to keep your communities safe. He also doesn’t want you to be able to purchase your ammunition online, limiting your choices as a consumer.

He doesn’t think you should make the decision on the timing of purchasing firearms. He wants to make that decision for you and limit you to one gun a month, only after you get a license from your state to purchase it. And that one gun would have to be stored how he thinks is best for you and your household, regardless of your individual situation.

New gun owners, or those interested in protecting their rights to become gun owners if they so wish, need to be aware of the implications of voting for Biden in November. A vote for Biden is a vote against your Constitutional right to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your property. It’s as simple as that.

I work part-time in a retail gun store and range. In the past two weeks, I’ve met at least 3 new gun owners who had no idea how difficult it actually was to get the firearm. It’s definitely not easier to buy a gun than a Big Mac or a book.

Please. Treat it as Trump would lose. Go out and Vote. Let us not be complacent that Trump will win. This was what Hillary supporters thought in 2016 and look what happened.

Complacency kills……….Constitutional Republics. Far too many Americans have deferred active participation in self-governance to their “betters” for far too long. You see the result in a professional class of politicians like Biden who take that fact to the bank. Trump is not perfect but he is the turd in their punch bowl. Be active, be aware, take back your government.

I totally agree with rcorrino. Treat this election as if Trump is behind and go out and vote. Every vote NOT made for Trump is a vote for hiden Biden.

Hopefully, people will be smart and not vote for Biden/Harris related to other issues. Biden has had and continues with a antigun bias which is known and does Harris . Biden had previously stated if he is elected President he will have Bet O’Rourke who famous commented on national television in 2019, Hell yes we’re going to take your AR 15, and AK 47’s. he made no bones about it. Biden has also previously mentioned in a video that a shotgun is better than an AR 15, video is out there . He is no Moderate . Hopefully first time… Read more »

Texas is rapidly turning purple. All of the big cities are already liberal. Non white (read: Hispanic) births outnumber white births 10 to 1. The writing is on the wall.

Clark the Super-dupper’s remark on births is off, but the rest of his comment is not. We almost lost Cruz to Beto. There were so many Beto signs neighborhoods looked like trash heaps. We in Texas are infected with Democrat voting fungus. A freedom destroying fungus stemming from within and places like other counties as California. We would be idiots to ignore the Democrat creeps on our land, and walls.

In todays world ignorant people vote where freebies are offered to pay for their votes.
The rest of us aren’t afraid of work to get what we want and enjoy those things more.
Those that vote for freebies are like those that promise them, tired of the freebie from china and throw it away after five minutes and crying for another one again.
Freebies, just like freebie voters, are throw aways of the democrat party, after they vote they are history.

We must realize there a large and increasing number of anti-American voters in Texas. Their vote counts equally regardless of residence; Texas does not have an Electoral College to balance rural from urban. I do hope Trump wins by such a margin to scare all anti-Americans into the Gulf of Mexico. Votes in Texas may be more secure than other places, but voting no longer reliable in defending freedom.

It’s too bad Texas can’t upgrade their immigration standards. Anybody coming from areas such as both left coasts should be tested, debugged and heavily scrutinized before being allowed to even set foot in such a great state. Oh yeah Beto, (the former Irish) needs his citizenship to Texas revoked and he be sent back to whatever left coast rock he crawled from beneath of.

Agree whole heartedly with you Will on all points. My statement in jest only. The governors in Florida and Texas doing great jobs considering with what they have been dealt.

A magazine that takes 100 clips, I wonder how many rounds each clip holds?
It would be interesting if the left can produce a working 100 clip magazine, would it not?
People who are wanting someone like biden for their “leader” are not voting for intelligence, because people who would vote for biden have no more intelligence than he has or has displayed over the last year.
Pretty pathetic.
