Biden Focuses Prohibitory Ambitions on “Gun Parts,” Gun Control

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Ever since he clinched the Democrat presidential nomination, we have been warning America’s gun owners that Joe Biden is no “moderate” when it comes to gun control. Simply scrolling through the extensive gun control agenda published on his official campaign website should make that point abundantly clear. It is a wish-list for (and likely compiled by) America’s most ambitious firearm prohibition advocates. Biden’s gun control plans are so voluminous and detailed that they encompass not just guns themselves but each of their individual parts.

In fact, if Biden has his way, the sale of gun parts over the Internet would be banned entirely.

If that sounds far-fetched, here is a direct quote from the so-called “BIDEN PLAN TO END OUR GUN VIOLENCE EPIDEMIC”: “Biden will enact legislation to prohibit all online sales of firearms, ammunition, kits, and gun parts.”

Those are his words, not ours.

[A]ll” online sales of – not just functional firearms or ammunition or even build kits – but “gun parts” would be banned under a Joe Biden administration.

Think about that.

We all know that experienced gun owners like to customize their firearms to their personal preferences and anatomy. We also know that certain high-wear parts will eventually need to be replaced by anyone keeping up his or her skills with regular range practice.

What is so threatening about the purchase of innocuous and commonplace parts like sights, grips, triggers, handguards, firing pins, choke tubes, plus any number of springs, screws, bushings, or other utilitarian hardware that it has to be completely banned from the Internet?

Pity the gun owner living in rural Alaska, Montana, or Wyoming who just wants to replace the stock grip panels on a revolver so it better fits his hand or to add night sights to a self-defense pistol or to change the spread of a shotgun with a new choke. Any of these usually simple operations could necessitate an hours-long round trip to the nearest gun store if Biden has his way.

And what if that store doesn’t carry the necessary parts or is open only while the gun owner has to be at work? Under a Biden presidency, the gun owner is simply out of luck.

The Internet has become an indispensable part of modern commerce. No retail industry could long survive if it were completely purged from the online marketplace. For Joe Biden, however, this terminal outcome would be a feature, not a bug, of his plan to ban “all online sales of … gun parts.”

After all, Biden’s “gun violence” plan also seeks to repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. This is the law that is singularly responsible for keeping opportunistic trial lawyers, gun control extremists, and activist judges from conspiring to paralyze America’s firearm industry with crippling new forms of civil liability.

Biden and his apologists cannot claim, moreover, that he is only trying to ban usable firearms or “ghost gun” build kits from the online sphere. True, he is trying to ban the use of the Internet for the transfer of firearms even between licensed dealers, as well as for the sale of unfinished frames or receivers that can – with sufficient tooling and know-how – be used to build a functional firearm.

But all these things are mentioned separately in his published gun control agenda from his plan to ban ALL online sales of gun parts.

Indeed, Biden makes his intentions unmistakable by linking to the website for the so-called “Peace Plan” published by March for Our Lives, the gun prohibition group whose spokespersons include the ever-opinionated (and usually wrong), David Hogg. We have written separately about the extremism of the “Peace Plan;” suffice to say here that it is nothing less than a plan for comprehensive civilian disarmament. On the present topic, in particular, its prescriptions include a “prohibition on any and all online firearm and ammunition sales or transfers, including gun parts” (emphasis added).

It is of course already true that federal law prohibits the online purchase of a usable firearm for direct shipment to one’s own residence. Like any initial retail purchase of a firearm, one that is selected and paid for online must be received in a face-to-face transaction with a federally-licensed dealer in the purchaser’s state of residence, with the background check, record-keeping, and other formalities common to all dealer sales.

Biden, in other words, is not just seeking to close loopholes. He is seeking to purge the industry that sustains our Second Amendment rights from the ordinary channels of modern commerce.

Gun owners should beware because handing the “malarkey moderate” Joe Biden the power of the U.S. presidency would have potentially irreversible consequences for their right to keep and bear arms.

many a year ago, Biden said he would get rid of guns by attrition. if your gun needed a part, it would not be available, period.

The tripwire for civil war is gun confiscation via gun “buyback” programs as proposed by Biden campaign. Given that nobody is going to comply the govt will extend “last chance” deadlines for a couple of months. Then what? Who will enforce physical confiscation and how? An estimated 15 million heavily armed gun owners organized as militia and volunteers, will take to the streets and make Portland look like a gay wedding. Half of those will be operating insurgencies against the infrastructure, political enemies of America (democrats), and collaborators (RINOs). P.S. After it is over, unlike Lincoln in 1865, I would… Read more »

it was stated years ago, that should Gov. be unable to maintain control, they would call upon “foreign assets” for assistance. Those foreign assets were undefined, but i can just imagine every country that wants a piece of our pie will volunteer. i heard thru the grapevine, again, many years ago, that what they wanted was the industrial east. my reply back down the ‘vine’ , was NO ! Not one grain of sand shall be acquired by some foreign power.

I do have a very good feeling about Trump’s re-election, but the immediate aftermath – regardless of the election’s outcome – will include a manurepot-load of violence all across the country. Regardless of who “wins” the election, civil war is absolutely imminent. Even Obama’s Homeland Security office told Congress in 2016 that civil war WILL occur – and their estimate was early 2021! [I cannot find a reason to argue with their conclusion… can you?] THAT is the time when all Collectivists (Socialists, Progressives, Democrats, Communists, Leftists, Marxists, or whatever the hell they call themselves this week) must be completely… Read more »

Soap Box, Ballot Box, Cartridge Box, and Pine Box. Only the last two preserve Freedom and Liberty as won by the same by our Founding Fathers. Our Founding /fathers would already have been finished shooting a second time. America has been over run.

i cannot adequately describe how strongly i hope you are wrong, but find it hard to ague. My next door neighbor is passive,but many others are very liberal. our civil war had neighbors killing ea. other,brother against brother. I pray most fervently, you are wrong, but I see it too.

I’ve seen war… No sane human being wants war anywhere near American soil.

But very soon, good men will have to do some very bad things… because our country’s (and our grandchildren’s) future depends upon keeping this country a Constitutional Republic [NOT allowing it to be transformed into a socialist regime].

This is not a new revelation that old Joe has concocted. Kamala Harris’ state of California has passed this law this year. Restrictions on every facet of anything gun is now in place. The only thing these venomous snakes have yet to figure out is how to legally take existing guns out of the hands of lawful citizens.

There are many arguments favoring total war against the democrat/marxist/liberals who seek to destroy the United States. This is just one of many.

This is more of the old saying from the Clinton era that it takes a village to raise a child, the government is the village and the citizens are the child and they want to tell you what and when you may do something and if the village doesn’t like it they will ban it.
So much for the freedoms we have had, if you vote for a democrat you are giving away your freedoms.
Re-elect Trump.

Here is the real issue. Biden and company do not trust you. They view government as not by, for and of the People but over the People. Keep that in mind and you can finish their sentences for them. They don’t need a platform. They are true believers in the worst sense of the term with a self-justified ideology that runs contrary to your desire to be a free person. That is the argument. The rest is simply theater.

I’m with you 100% AZ but machine guns have been NFA restricted items since 1934. I humbly suggest you read up on the history leading up to it, very interesting.
