Trampling 2A at Core of Biden’s Empty Promise of ‘Unity’

Does this look like the face of a man interested in unity? Joe Biden can’t unify the nation when he’s vowing to crush the rights of 100 million gun owners. IMG NRA-ILA

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- In a video message broadcast by CNN, Democrat Joe Biden put the lie to his widely-reported intent to preach unity during his inaugural address to what essentially will be a capital city occupied by some 22,000 National Guard troops by basically declaring war on about 100 million of his constituents.

“My first day in office,” he declares in the video, “I’m going to send a bill to Congress repealing the liability protection for gun manufacturers, closing the background check loopholes and waiting period that now let too many people slip through the cracks.”

The Guardian is reporting that Biden “ran as a rebuke to the divisiveness and cynicism of Trumpism, promising to ‘restore the soul of the nation’ and serve as a president for ‘all Americans.’” The story quotes former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang observing “that everything he does becomes the new reasonable.”

But just how “reasonable” is Biden’s widely-read plan to “end our gun violence epidemic” if it promises to pressure state governments to require licensing of private citizens before they can purchase a firearm?

Where does it say in the Constitution, and specifically in the Bill of Rights, that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed…provided you get a license from the state to exercise that right?

Biden’s plan, as Ammoland has previously reported, calls for a ban on the sale of so-called “assault weapons” and standard capacity magazines. How does it unify a nation by essentially criminalizing the property of an estimated 17-20 million honest citizens who have harmed nobody?

How “reasonable” is it to make citizens endure a “waiting period” before they can take possession of a firearm? No other right protected by the Constitution mandates a waiting period.

How “reasonable” does it sound when the President-elect releases a statement in which he pledges “to defeat the NRA?” While the National Rifle Association appears to have serious troubles—announcing last week it had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection as part of a strategy to “dump New York” and reorganize as a non-profit in Texas—the organization is as American as they come, with members from all walks of life, all races, creeds and corners of the country. As the announcement noted, NRA wants to be “free from the toxic political environment of New York.” NRA was incorporated in New York in 1871.

In his message to NRA members, Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre noted the move to reincorporate in the Lone Star State is “subject to court approval.”

And it is true the NRA has its share of criticism within the firearms community. The Guardian reported one major donor to NRA may “challenge key aspects of the gun group’s bankruptcy filing, in an attempt to hold executives accountable for allegedly having defrauded their members of millions of dollars to support their own lavish lifestyles.”

There has been no small amount of discussion about the NRA’s announcement on social media, but Biden’s threat to “defeat” the 5-million-member association, which celebrates its 150th anniversary this year as the nation’s oldest civil rights organization, is like throwing down a gauntlet to tens of millions of gun owners who may not be members, but still consider NRA as their voice in Congress and state legislatures.

And this week, the Second Amendment Foundation—a separate gun rights organization specializing in education and litigation—is running a blistering 60-second commercial on more than a dozen networks, critical of Biden’s gun control scheme. SAF’s message encourages grassroots rights activists to join in a project called “2nd Amendment First Responders.” NRA’s announcement was followed by a ramped-up interest in this effort.

SAF and NRA have worked together in the past on legal actions, and they are currently partners in a lawsuit challenging an effort by the City of Seattle to violate Washington’s 35-year-old gun law preemption statute.

The SAF advertisement is scheduled to air 79 times during inauguration week, split among these networks: DirecTV, Fox News, Fox Business, CNN, MSNBC, The Weather Channel, One America News Network, CNBC, HLN, Bloomberg, Dish TV, the Outdoor Channel and Sportsman Channel.

“Biden wants to regulate and tax popular firearms and their magazines under the National Firearms Act, or mandate they be turned in through a so-called ‘gun buyback’ program that amounts to compensated confiscation,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb. “Our campaign is alerting the nation about the extremist Biden-Harris agenda.”

Recently, after Biden tweeted his intention to defeat NRA, Gottlieb declared in a swift rebuttal, “He may attack one group by name, but his goal is to crush the rights of every gun owner in our country.

“By attacking the Second Amendment Rights of 100 million Americans,” he said, “Biden is not bringing us together but dividing us further.”

Not thinking ahead, as usual. If the U.S. gun makers go out of business, where is the Military going to buy their weapons? Except for certain select groups, the regular forces don’t use foreign made firearms.

Thinking back to the Black NCOs I rubbed shoulders with in the Army from ’73 to ’76 I know that all of them are spinning in their graves with the actions of some Blacks of low and high rank in the Army these past couple of decades.

Funny, when you stopped, I started. I did not like the games they pulled. Three story barracks. Blacks on the bottom, Mexicans in the middle and whites on top, totally segregated. I was so disappointed because when I was younger I was subjected to racial riots in school and hoped that when I joined the military that it would all be gone because we were all on the same team. Not with the way my military base was ran.

You do need to be concerned. I understand that they ask the newbies if they would be willing to shoot their own people in case of a insurrection, if the answer is yes you are in. The problem is, now that republicans are referred to as the terrorists, demonrats would say that we are the insurrectionists and I am concerned that with all the programming and brainwashing they received since they were young children in school, they would sucker in or buy it..

We out number them about 10,000 to one. Not good odds. thickredline.org has the right idea. Get the ENFORCERS on our side and become PEACE OFFICERS again. It will be their choice.

If it is like it was in the USMC in 1976 I can understand why they say that. It’s because our own government promotes racisms within it’s own ranks. That is what I observed and I told my commander I was tired of being subjected too and there would be no way that we would unite and be one team being segregated like they kept us. His response was, that would all change on the battle field. Oh, great. Of course I didn’t say that.

That was not my experience at Basic, AIT, or PDS at Miesau, Germany. We only had one guy at Miesau, Black guy, who was a problem and he was told what would happen to him if he got too crazy. He was “informed” by several Blacks in our Unit who let him know that that shit didn’t play at Miesau from anyone to anyone. In fact one night when I was still living in the barracks he and I got into a discussion about one in the morning about his eight track playing on and on at a loud volume.… Read more »

Resist. Resist effectively. Do so via your state affiliate. California Rifle and Pistol Association and the likes are effective barriers. In states where you have a Citizens Defense League those are the most effective of all. Virgina and Arizona lead in that category. Support local and state elected officials who do the heavy lifting. Here is a clear example of what you need to look for: https://azcdl.org/news-alerts/legislative-update-2/ I hear a lot of talk, a lot of sturm und drang about fighting civil wars.
