‘Biden Determined to Trample on 2A’ Says Chair of Anti-Biden Super PAC

Anonymous Snitch Group to Dox ‘Domestic Terrorist’ Trump Voters

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- Writing at Fox News Sunday, Ted Harvey, a former Colorado legislator now chairing the Committee to Defeat the President, described as an “anti-Biden super PAC,” asserted Joe Biden is “determined to trample on the Second Amendment” while at the same time “undermining the right to bear arms in unilateral fashion.”

“When it comes to gun control,” Harvey alleges, “the Biden administration believes in government by fiat, unencumbered by the legal constraints placed on the presidency. He says so himself: ‘I’m going to use all the resources at my disposal to keep people safe’ – even if it means treading on the Constitution.”

While it might be easy to dismiss Harvey’s Op-Ed as partisan claptrap, it is far more challenging when one considers the Biden gun control plan covered several times at AmmoLand News. Biden is on record

Harvey’s column quickly cuts to the chase when he observes, “Of course, Democrats fail to acknowledge that Colorado – my home state and the site of America’s most recent mass shooting – already has some of the strictest gun laws in the country. The state government – in which I served for more than a decade – already mandates universal background checks and bans high-capacity magazines. Colorado is even a “red flag” state, allowing law enforcement officials to temporarily seize weapons from those deemed an extreme risk.

“As is often the case, the Democratic Party’s laundry list of gun control demands would have done nothing to stop the Colorado shooting.”

Harvey, in the vernacular of target shooters, has put it in the X-ring.

The gun control movement, which has become the gun prohibition movement since anti-gunners started pushing for a ban on the manufacture and sale of so-called “semiautomatic assault weapons,” has their man in Joe Biden. In an email blast following Biden’s announcement of his “initial” gun control program, Everytown for Gun Safety—the billionaire-backed lobbying group largely bankrolled by Michael Bloomberg—declared, “This morning, we were at the White House to witness a historic moment for our movement: President Joe Biden is taking executive action to end our country’s gun violence crisis. President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris ran on the strongest gun safety platform ever, and today, they took an important step in putting that platform into action to help save lives.” It was signed by Everytown President John Feinblatt and Angela Ferrell-Zabala, head of the group’s Movement Building effort.

They were apparently present at the White House, but as recently stated by Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and founder of the Second Amendment Foundation, “Nobody from the Biden administration has reached out to us or any other rights organization to my knowledge, which certainly clarifies Biden’s approach to firearms regulation. He came into office talking about unity, but he just declared war on tens of millions of law-abiding gun owners who have committed no crimes.”

Another prominent gun prohibition group is Giffords, named for former Congresswoman Gabrielle “Gabby” Giffords, who survived an attempted assassination attempt in Tucson, Arizona ten years ago in which six other people were killed. Giffords just announced the hiring of another former member of Congress, one-term Democrat Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, the first South America-born member of Congress.

When NBC News reported about Mucarsel-Powell’s new job as senior advisor to Giffords, it noted right up front “Seeing her father’s body with gunshot wounds was one of the most traumatic moments” for her. He was murdered in 1996, outside his residence.

A little research reveals that her father was not murdered in the United States, but in Ecuador, where he was, according to the NBC story, “an entrepreneur of Lebanese descent who lived in the city of Guayaquil.”

In 2018, according to MacroTrends, Ecuador had a murder rate of 5.80 per 100,000 people. That same year, according to Wikipedia, the U.S. murder rate was 5.0 per 100,000.

No U.S. gun control law could have prevented the Ecuador murder. Anti-gunners have the same problem in the U.S. As Harvey explained over the weekend, the “laundry list” of proposed gun control restrictions would have made no difference in the Boulder mass shooting, same as they haven’t prevented any other mass shooting in recent history.

Just look at Seattle, Washington, which instituted a gun and ammunition tax in mid-2015 to fund “violence reduction” efforts. Homicides have steadily climbed in the city, and over the weekend there was a drive-by shooting that wounded four people, including a toddler. A nearly identical tax was adopted in Cook County, Illinois but the body count keeps climbing in Chicago.

Adding insult to injury, Biden has nominated a man the National Review headlined as an “anti-gun fanatic” to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the government’s gun law enforcement agency.

The Washington Free Beacon quoted SAF’s Gottlieb asserting Biden’s nomination of Chipman “is an attempt to politicize the ATF.

“The bottom line is we will have the ATF working against gun owners rather than being a neutral government agency to enforce laws,” Gottlieb said. “We’re probably going to have what I would consider to be a very rogue ATF. … Everybody in the whole firearms community and Second Amendment community is going to pull out all the stops to fight the confirmation.”

So far, every signal from the Biden administration—which is now being called the “Biden-Harris” administration by many in the media, as Vice President Kamala Harris never seems to be more than a few steps away from the president during public appearances—has been increasingly hostile to gun owners and the Second Amendment. Harvey says as much in his Fox News Op-Ed, which was amplified by Amy Swearer, a legal fellow at the Meese Center for Legal and Judicial Studies at the Heritage Foundation.

Writing at the Deseret News, Swearer observed about Biden’s gun control proposals, “We don’t yet have the specific language the DOJ will eventually use in these rules, but two things are immediately clear. One is that these actions are primarily political stunts that can do very little to address gun violence. Second, they serve as notice to responsible gun owners that the White House doesn’t think very highly of their Second Amendment rights.”

A few paragraphs later, Swearer added, “Every American wants safer communities and to ensure that criminals don’t have ready access to firearms. Unfortunately, instead of looking for effective bipartisan solutions, President Biden has decided to play politics in hopes that Americans won’t know any better.”

If the chi-coms were burning/looting Portland, we’d stack `em up like cord wood. But since the looters are from within, we give them a pass.

We seem to have trouble ascertaining “enemy”.

The homicide rate for the U.S. is virtually meaningless. Many areas of the U.S. have homicide rates of less than 1.5. Most state level homicide rates are also largely meaningless. For counties with large cities, county level homicide rates are also meaningless. For most cities with high homicide rates, city level homicide rates are also meaningless. To quantify the horrific violence related to dysfunctional micro-cultures, the calculations must be done down at the neighborhood level. Here are the homicide rates for some of the more violent Chicago neighborhoods: Englewood: 191.0 North Lawndale: 98.8 Garfield Park: 85.0 Austin: 69.3 Grand Crossing:… Read more »

If the Democrat run cities are removed from the homicide statistics, the U.S. would be near the bottom of the list.

It’s not a city thing.

It’s not a Democrat/Republican thing.

It most certainly is both. It’s also a “race thing” and a “culture thing”. Blinders and denial cannot change it.

It’s a culture thing. There are neighborhoods on the south side of Chicago with very low crime rates. Those neighborhoods are in the city. The city is run by Democrats and most of the people in those low crime rate neighborhoods vote Democrat. It’s not a city thing. It’s not a Democrat thing. It is absolutely a cultural thing. If you put Republicans in charge of the city of Chicago, they almost certainly would not address the dysfunctional micro-cultures in the extremely violent neighborhoods. Why do you think I have blinders on? The neighborhoods with the highest crime rates have… Read more »

Repeating myself, of course.
Executive Actions are a wish list of what he wants. No force of law. Agencies are told to see what could be done, not actually do anything.
Executive Orders tell Agencies how to enforce existing Law, not to rewrite the Law.
biden cannot ban any guns with either Executive Action or Executive order. The most he can do is ban the import of certain firearms.
obama banned the import of Russian made AKs, so Kalashnikov built a factory in Florida to make “Made in USA” AK rifles. So much for bans.

But after their 60 dsy or 90 day comment period, ATF will begin enforcing GCA law and background checks on 80% receivers as if they were firearms; and arresting braced pistol owners for possessing an SBR not registered per NFA. “You cant do that” and “you do not have that authority” and “thats not illegal” dont matter to those government thugs. Maybe the recent 6th Circuit reigning in of Chevron Deferrence will come into play, but that will likely take years.

What these gun grabbing idiots fail to acknowledge is that the 2nd amendment doesn’t necessarily protect our rights to bear arms. Instead, the 2nd amendment prevents the government from infringing on our right to bear arms. Big difference!

Those gun grabbing dolts also fail to recognize is that guns don’t pull their own triggers. They’re unable to legislate the evil that exists in someone’s mind. If banning and controlling guns is the answer, then banning and controlling silverware is the answer for obesity.

“the 2nd amendment prevents the government from infringing on our right to bear arms”

Exactly! However, THIS is where WE, The People are supposed to step up and maintain the pressure on government to back off, yet apathy and fear keeps the masses humbled. Backbone is hard to come by, but once you achieve that level in life, it is unstoppable into death.

If the chi-com army waded ashore with intent to destroy American freedom, we’d shoot their ass and push the carcasses back out to feed the fishes.

I’m curious why we continue to give the democrat party special consideration?

The only purpose for banning guns is to impose a totalitarian rulership over the disarmed. This is why we won’t give up our best and most effective means of preventing that.
