Detective John McClane was the first to warn us about the dangers of the Glock 7. “That punk pulled a Glock 7 on me. You know what that is? It’s a porcelain gun made in Germany. It doesn’t show up on your airport X-ray machines here and it costs more than what you make in a month,” Detective McClane said in Die Hard 2.
Thank God the White House was listening.
As part of his latest sweeping and unconstitutional Executive Order issued Tuesday, Joe Biden announced he is strengthening, modernizing and making permanent the Undetectable Firearms Act, which will save us all from the perils of porcelain pistols, even though they don’t yet exist.
A White House “Fact” Sheet issued in conjunction with the EO states that Biden will “advance congressional efforts to prevent the proliferation of firearms undetectable by metal detectors.”
“In recent years, we’ve seen the rise of technology that allows guns to be made with polymers and other materials that are increasingly capable of avoiding detection by metal detectors,” the Fact Sheet states. “President Biden is directing the Attorney General to help Congress modernize and make permanent the Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988, which is currently set to expire in December 2023.”
To be clear, no modern firearm or ammunition can make it through a metal detector undetected, but the Glock 7 “crackdown” is just part – the silly part – of another one of Biden’s overreaching assaults on guns, gun makers, gun dealers and gun owners.
Nowhere in the actual EO or the “Fact” sheet does Biden mention how he intends to hold criminals accountable. Instead, he’s holding the gun industry accountable, as if gun makers and gun dealers are responsible for the surging crime plaguing Democrat-run cities, which is giving Biden’s pollsters fits as 2024 approaches.
Biden wants the Federal Trade Commission to investigate “how gun manufacturers market firearms to minors,” which is ludicrous. The only firearm I can recall ever marketed toward minors was the Daisy Red Ryder BB-gun. Besides, advertising is constitutionally protected speech, so I guess Team Biden doesn’t mind infringing upon the First Amendment as long as it leads to infringements upon the Second.
The EO shows Biden plans to use his sycophants in the legacy media to gaslight the public “with more information regarding federally licensed firearms dealers who are violating the law.” They aren’t, although scores of law-abiding gun dealers are being put out of business every day by Biden’s weaponized bullyboys in the ATF, who are revoking FFLs like it’s cool for the most minor of clerical errors, not for any serious reasons, like failing to run a background check, which only Biden believes leads to crime.
Joe actually proposed the creation of a new federal team that would swoop in whenever and wherever there’s a mass shooting to exploit the tragedy, which Biden and his cronies would never dream of letting go to waste. Maybe they’ll have “Federal Blood-dancing Bureau,” or FBB stenciled on the backs of their blue windbreakers, because that’s exactly what they’ll be doing.
To be clear, criminals have nothing to fear from Biden’s latest imperial decree. There’s nothing they need worry about. For the law-abiding, this is just the latest in a long line of infringements that we’ll have to endure until there’s a new occupant at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, who views us as citizens, not subjects.

A made up gun by a very real geriatric imbecile to who lying is his first nature,FJB and his merry Marxist’s.
He will never hold criminals accountable because he is a criminal!
The old boy byden wants more thugs out on the streets as only thugs can make things worse for the law abiding. All the crap that byden is doing is to take our rights away from us, of course what do you expect from a SATAN WORSHIPPING DEMONCRAT and a DEMON byden is 100 percent. Any7that would advocate for the mass slaughter of unborn children is a follower of satan.
excuse me, you spelled his name wrong, it is buyden because he has been bought by the ukrainians and chinese.
‘Joe actually proposed the creation of a new federal team that would swoop in whenever and wherever there’s a mass shooting to exploit the tragedy, which Biden and his cronies would never dream of letting go to waste’.
That’s the ticket folks! More Gubment! More ‘Alphabet Agencies’ to INFRINGE of law abiding people’s rights…. Time for a double scoop there mcSniffy!
How would he propose funding such a team? Remember according to his supporters there are at least one mass shooting every day.
Hey I have an idea – why no let local law enforcement deal with such matters as they are already relatively close? Better yet let private citizens protect themselves. After all we stop twice as many mass shootings with half the deaths compared to police interrupted shootings. Same reason as using local LEO for local events – we’re already there.
he’s going to tax druggies, illegals and socialists.
Imagine how successful that is going to be..
“i’m in the money”
Another back door attempt to enact obama’s federal police force. That’s the end goal of the defund the police charade. Out here in Washington State, we have the same problem as the good folks in New York State, Hellinois and Pennsylvania, idiots that live in the huge urban areas voting commie. We have what I call Pugetopolis, a 3 county area on the east side of the Puget Sound that control who gets elected. Decades ago a dimocRAT Senator named Warren Magnuson said “You can see all the votes that matters from the top of the Space Needle.” A tactic… Read more »
Private citizens are already their own First Rsponder. LEOs are Second Responders. When do we start getting First Responder discounts?? Asking for a friend.
I was at a nude beach a few days ago and was concerned about my Glock 7 “printing”.
2024 elections are not getting here fast enough. you know I turn 51 next month, and I think to myself, I hope I live long enough to forget, that in all my years and all the presidents that I have lived to see run our country. that the Biden Administration has to be the biggest most embarrassing Imbecilic moron in our history thus far. the worst part is Biden will be added to the history books, for all of our kids to learn about. the only book I think Jo Biden needs to be added to, is the websters dictionary,… Read more »
ol jimma carter and barry hussein are breathing a sigh of relief.
F☆ck China Joe Biden , eat a turd you lying ilegitiment incoherant clownshow.
From the guy that told us to step out on the balcony and fire off 2 blasts from our double-barreled 12 ga.. What a shitshow.
” . . . Team Biden doesn’t mind infringing upon the First Amendment as long as it leads to infringements upon the Second.” This is the key takeaway – anyone who wishes to infringe ANY part of the Bill of Rights is willing to infringe ALL of the Bill of Rights. Abolish any one part of the Bill of Rights, and in due course, the rest will fall, too, like a row of dominoes.
Come and get it, MF ‘r! l know just where to put it.
Just so Joey can say he did “something” when in fact he isn’t doing anything meaningful. Just in case the old fool decides to run for a second term.
We really dodon’have to tolerate this, we do have options that don’t include the Corrupted Courts. It’s past time those in DC need to learn that they serve at Our pleasure, not tbeirs.
Dementia Joe’s handlers as well as most of the political class want the general public disarmed and scared, and reliant on big gov for protection from gang bangers and hoodlums… but that protection will never be in time. They WANT crime to rise, so they have an excuse to go after guns. The gov won’t go after hoodlums until after the general population is defenseless and disarmed, and then gov will have an absolute monopoly on violence and weaponry. All that is planned and will happen, if we let it.
Lee, if you were a bit older you would remember Remington’s Nylon 66. It was a sleek .22 semi-automatic advertised in magazines like Boy’s Life. And a Daisy may resemble a firearm but even pResident Biden has not referred to the Red Ryder or any other B-B gun as a firearm. At least not yet.
