Biden Breaks Silence on Guns, Demands ‘Common Sense Reforms’

Joe Biden
Joe Biden used the anniversary of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., to press for extremist gun control

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- Having waited about four weeks from the day he moved into the White House, Democrat Joe Biden used the Valentine’s Day anniversary of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Fla., to demand that Congress “enact commonsense gun law reforms,” which is camo-speak for extremist gun control.

What he calls “common sense” is considered nonsense by Second Amendment advocates who argue none of Biden’s so-called “reforms” will prevent a single violent crime.

In a statement from the White House, the Biden administration declared, “Three years ago today, a lone gunman took the lives of 14 students and three educators at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.” It was a tragedy, but to paraphrase former Democrat Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, “Never let a tragedy go to waste.” Biden chooses to blame guns, but there is plenty of blame to spread to local officials who knew the suspect.

Biden’s radical agenda has been posted online for more than a year. Nobody can claim they didn’t know about it.

He wants:

  • Licensing for citizens before they can purchase a firearm.
  • Universal background checks.
  • A ban on modern sporting rifles and original capacity magazines.
  • “Smart gun” technology
  • Repeal of legal protection for firearms makers from harassment lawsuits designed to bankrupt the firearms industry.
  • One-gun-per-month restrictions for law-abiding gun owners.
  • Mandated “safe storage” of firearms.
  • Penalize adults for allowing minors access to firearms.*
  • Expand so-called “red flag” laws.
  • Extend the background check period from three to at least ten days.

(*Would the Biden administration punish crime victim 73-year-old Linda Ellis of Goldsboro, N.C. because her 12-year-old grandson was able to access a firearm and fatally shoot one of two thugs who broke into her home Feb. 13 demanding money, and shot her in the leg? The fatally wounded suspect was found in an intersection nearby. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.)

In the White House statement, the Biden administration threatened to “not wait for the next mass shooting to heed that call. We will take action to end our epidemic of gun violence and make our schools and communities safer.”

Such a statement has “executive order” written all over it, critics believe. The question is: How much authority does Biden have to issue an executive order affecting a constitutionally-enumerated fundamental right? Gun rights advocates are already preparing for court confrontations.

One organization has been busy in that regard for weeks. The Second Amendment Foundation last month launched its “2nd Amendment First Responder” project, which has been publicized by Ammoland News coverage. SAF has been recruiting “First Responders” for the past six weeks and the effort is resulting in an impressive reaction.

SAF has reportedly attracted thousands of new supporters, including first-time gun buyers. In a news release, the foundation detailed this new support:

“Over 25 percent of our new supporters were first-time gun buyers in 2020. Approximately 40 percent of our new gun-owning supporters are women.”

The campaign, which has been advertising on a dozen networks, has also drawn some ugly hate mail including this message from one critic:

“Get the f— off CNN. No lying propaganda you trump (sic) ass licker. We can’t stand you dumb f— republicians (sic). Go back to state news, fox, with your bull s— lies, hate filled speech, name calling, all in the name of God. You lying trump (sic) worshippers will burn in hell. And if you come near my house you c—suckers, I’ll shoot your devil loving, racist ass. Come on.”

SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb gets “three or four a day” like this. Earlier messages to SAF have included these gems:

  • “Please go f— yourself. Thank you.”
  • “You are inviting violence and mayhem just like your president by showing your ad. It is full of lies and I feel bad for anyone who believes your violent mission. You pray on the weak of mind and they don’t even know it. This is a pathetic and lying organization. Organization is used loosely. Take down your despicable false ad. And DO NOT contact me in any form. This is sickening. Bellevue is pretty pricey, who funds this s–t show?”
  • “Your ads claiming Biden & Harris will take away guns are grossly fabricated, perfidious lies designed to incite radical, right-wing crypto-fascist violence which IS a violation of the sedition-insurrection act. Your organization can be *charged* with violating the sedition-insurrection act & if you continue to put your outrageously false, pernicious claims on TV we will send an official complaint to the Dept. of Justice plus a possible lawsuit…No Democratic POTUS has *ever* taken away guns, ammo, tootsie rolls, condoms, or guava coated dildos:-) In fact, if anyone takes away guns, it will be a RATpublican like Trump, Cruz or Johnson once they secure a right-wing dictatorship which Trump almost did. So cut the s–t, the surge of pathological, radical right-wing toxin must stop, your orange demon is now out of power and hiding in his Florida bunker where he allows Russian transvestites to urinate on his micro mushroom. Stop the lies, stop the ads or the DOJ will be calling you. Get a life, eat a nice tuna sub with anchovies:-)”

One Michigan-based ammunition company reportedly is refusing to sell ammunition to Biden voters. According to Law Enforcement Today, Fenix Ammunition questions would-be purchasers.

“When a shopper visits Fenix’s website,” the report explains, “a popup prevents the would-be buyer from accessing the site unless they answer ‘No’ to the question, ‘Did you vote for Joe Biden?’

“A ‘Yes’ answer directs the shopper to Biden’s so-called ‘gun safety’ page on his platform website.”

Ultimately, if a customer acknowledges voting for Biden last fall, “the sale is declined.”

Meanwhile, Biden has a long track record of extremist gun control, so any thought he might be bluffing is at best delusional. He promised gun control on the campaign trail, and vowed to put anti-gun former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke in charge of his administration’s gun policy.

At the beginning of his administration, Biden called for “unity.” Moving to erode the rights of more than 100 million U.S. citizens is hardly unifying, say critics, and considering the hate-filled reaction to SAF’s “2nd Amendment First Responder” advertising, Biden supporters are not interested in unity at all.

All ‘gun control laws’ are unconstitutional and anti-constitutional.
Unconstitutional as NO LAW may stand that is not in 100% harmony with the Constitution.
Anti-constitutional as these ‘gun control laws’ attempt to change the amendment without going through the amendment process.

Voidness legal definition of Voidnesslegal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com › Voidness

Void. That which is null and completely without legal force or binding effect. … Therefore, no action can be maintained for breach of a void contract, and it cannot be made valid by ratification. Because it is nugatory, a void contract need not be rescinded or otherwise declared invalid in a court of law.

Leftists have no damned idea how much “violence and mayhem” will result from the civil war that they (and specifically their leaders) are driving this country toward.

I’ve seen war, and no sane human being wants it anywhere near US soil. But, of course, ignorant liberals have no concept of either 1) the upcoming consequences (which they refuse to admit even exist) of, or 2) their own level of responsibility for, the hellish civil war – that, back in 2016, even Obama’s Homeland Security office warned Congress to expect by mid-2021!

if it comes to that, and i really pray it doesn`t, we will have a major problem. Canada sold out to the communist Chinese, and they are conducting ‘winter training’ on our northern border as we converse. The Government stated years ago, if they needed help they would call upon “Foreign Assets” . So, Red Chinese to the North, invasion under way to the South, Russia harassing our fishing fleets. Besides all that,our military is being purged of all patriots. And we have a doddering old pedophile and a whore in charge. Lord help us !

As far as an EO goes, the most he can do is like obama did, ban the IMPORT of certain firearms. When obama did it, Russian made AK rifles could not be imported, so Kalashnikov built a factory in Florida to make them. So much for the import ban!

“Life is too short to be hemmed in by smallminded people.” My thoughts exactly. Back in the 1980’s I built a 1911 in .45 ACP that I shot 185 grain HCLSWCs out of at 1300 FPS. I won’t say what the load was, because it would blow up a normal 1911, but it involved Blue Dot, and cases made from annealed, cut down, and inside neck reamed .308 rifle cases. And a very stiff recoil spring with special buffers turned from Delrin. I was always being taken to task by narrow minded people complaining it was “unsafe”, even though nothing… Read more »

I have a box on my shelves that is prominently labeled: WARNING, THIS AMMO IS ONLY TO BE FIRED IN MY 1911. HIGH PRESSURE. It contains 45 ACP ammo that pushes a 185gr JHP bullet at 1475 fps out of my 1911. It is completely safe in that gun with its fully supported barrel, 26 lb recoil spring and square bottom firing pin retainer. My kids know about the ammo and know that firing it in any normal 45 ACP would be dangerous. The rounds use a specific type of R-P case and are loaded to max LOA for that… Read more »

 Biden was instrumental in the passage of the No Gun Zone law in 1990, which banned guns in certain public places notably public schools facilitated these shootings. This law “enables and guarantees a successful mass shooting every time” by making everyone in the public school system defenseless and easy targets. This law also guaranteed the shooters’ safety by making sure they alone had weapons during the carnage. Please notice that all these shooting occur at public schools, this law does not cover private schools which have their own armed security. There have been no mass shootings at private schools in… Read more »

“Breaks silence”. He’s never been silent about gun control. He’s advocated for it and written legislation enacting it. Everyone knows his stance and what he would do if he could. What people need to know are the names of all the Republicans who have advocated for and enacted gun control since those are the politicians that people reading these articles seem to keep voting for like they’re going to be 2A saviors.

Rubio’s proposed legislation would grant the federal government the power to

This law will target law-abiding citizens who have not committed a crime, in other words, it’s an unconstitutional “pre crime” program similar to what you’d expect to see in Communist China.
