Biden Knows Best, Demands Gun-Control
Today, President Biden emerged from hiding and gave a real-life speech.
It’s true he didn’t stick around for questions. However, to be fair the early bird special at Golden Corral isn’t going to last forever.
The speech was addressing the biggest issue facing Americans. Something that he as president simply will not allow to continue. Not on his watch.
Joe Biden talks about gun control and his ideal gun laws
President Biden started off by addressing the ‘national health crisis' of ‘gun violence.' Wait, what?
As tempting as it is, I am not going to get into how absurd that statement is. Apparently, Pres. Biden does not have access to the same DOJ statistics you have by following this link.
Take a look at the actual numbers of murders committed with various objects. You decide for yourself if you believe ‘gun violence,' let alone the gun control aimed at a specific type of rifle constitutes a ‘national health crisis.'
‘Phony' Second Amendment Arguments:
Before explaining exactly what he wants to do, the president first explained that any idea that he could be wrong is just ridiculous.
Okay, he didn't say that specifically. That sounds a little totalitarian-ish.
However, he did actually said out loud:
Nothing I'm about to recommend in any way impinges on the Second Amendment. These are phony arguments suggesting that these are Second Amendment rights at stake from what we're talking about.
Oh, shoot, not much better.
The president thought he would be able to employ the ancient Jedi mind trick used by Obi-Wan in the movie Star Wars. Biden's attempt didn't actually work as well.
This has everything to do with the Second Amendment, and gun ownership.
Constitutional Scholar Biden Breaks Down the Bill of Rights for us ‘Uneducateds'
But no amendment to the Constitution is absolute … From the very beginning, you couldn't own any weapon you wanted to own. From the very beginning the Second Amendment existed, certain people weren't allowed to have weapons. So the idea is just bizarre to suggest that some of the things we're recommending are contrary to the Constitution.
Will someone please send me the 1789 list of prohibited firearms, as I can't seem to find it.
While we're on the topic of ‘certain people' not being allowed to own guns, which people were those? Someone should let the president know that the ‘certain people' who the government didn't want to possess ‘weapons' were black. Here is a link to an article in the Atlantic that explains the not-so-cool history of gun control.
Also, President Biden thinks it is:
…just bizarre to suggest that some of the things we're recommending are contrary to the Constitution.
Just some of the things? So you admit that some of the things you're proposing ARE contrary to the constitution? Cool, I knew we could find common ground.
Biden Wants the Following:
First, asking that the:
Justice Department (DOJ) to propose within a month a rule to stop “ghost guns.”
If you're not sure what ghost guns are, that's okay. All you need to know is that they are scary and should be banned. However, if you are one of those pain-in-the-neck, conspiracy-type people who just won't take what a politician tells you at face value here is an explanation of what ghost guns are.
In essence, a ghost gun is an unserialized gun that someone assembles with legally purchased ‘raw' parts. Before the gun is functional some machining of the parts must be done.
Are ghost guns used in crimes? You bet. Are registered and serialized guns used in crimes, sure. This isn't to say who cares if crimes are committed. Just that ghost guns are not used in a high percentage of crimes.
Would the criminals who used ghost guns not be able to obtain serialized, non-ghost guns? Hmmm, I am speculating but I am going to say yes they would. But you think about it and answer that question for yourself.
Ghost guns are almost never used in mass or high-profile shootings. I am working on and will be publishing a story documenting just how mass shooters of the last 20 years have obtained their guns. I will also document what type of gun they used in their crime. Once I do, I will link it here.
Within 60 days, President Biden wants the DOJ to propose a rule on handgun braces.
Braces on handguns? What harm can those do? For starters, they make the gun more controllable, allowing the user to limit the risk to innocent bystanders. Additionally, they are used by those with physical disabilities so they too can shoot. If you're saying it seems like pistol braces sound like a good thing, you're right.
However, some pistol brace designs complicate the ATF's arbitrary definition of what a short-barreled rifle (SBR) is. The criteria are very confusing. So much so that the ATF has issued and retracted ‘opinions' on braces several times over the years. Each time, tens of thousands of people become potential felons overnight, simply for owning something that was legally purchased.
There is absolutely no statistical data anywhere to suggest that regulating pistol braces will have an effect on crimes committed with guns. If you care to research for yourself here are some articles on what a pistol brace is and is not. In this episode of the Concealed Carry Podcast we talk all about pistol braces.
Thirdly, President Biden wants the DOJ to:
Propose action on “community violence intervention”
The president wants some action proposed to address violence in specific communities or groups in our society. If you are legitimately concerned about violence where you live, I hope you fall into one of the government-approved communities deserving of special attention. If not, don't complain, that is unpatriotic and borderline treasonous behavior.
We all agree that certain communities are affected by crime more than others. However, is increased violence in areas with poor economics a new thing? Of course not. If the DOJ has the answer, why have they held out for the last 50 years?
And is the DOJ really the entity to come up with any plan to help the situation? Maybe, maybe not, but I'm skeptical.
Banning ghost guns, and pistol braces will do absolutely nothing to address the real issues facing the residents living in these high-crime cities. There is no statistical or anecdotal evidence to even remotely suggest anything to the contrary. This is an instance of a politician conflating issues.
President Biden continues pushing for Red Flag legislation:
Ultimately the president wants to compel states to enact”red flag” legislation. However, now he is asking the DOJ to offer recommendations on these ‘red flag' laws.
The laws allow police to seize firearms from someone who hasn't committed a crime. All that is necessary with some of the red flag laws is for someone associated with the person to voice a concern about the gun owner to the police.
Many states currently have ‘red flag laws' on the books. While not all ‘red flag' laws are the same, some have held up in court against arguments that they are not constitutional.
No federal ‘red flag’ law exists at the moment.
Biden administration to issue a report on gun trafficking
Is he or isn't he?
Enough prayers, time for some action. I believe the Senate should immediately pass three House-passed bills to close loopholes that allow gun purchases, purchasers, to bypass the background checks.
Earth-shattering news right? Not so much, it is the same old song and dance. Here I address the issue of universal background checks and supposed loopholes.
The Executive in Chief also reminded us that he doesn't like ‘Assault weapons' or ‘high capacity' magazines
Using the made-up term ‘high-capacity' to once again push for gun control, the president mentioned guns that ‘can hold 100 rounds.‘ As if the ‘high capacity‘ magazine ban proposed would only ban 100 round magazines.
Not even close. How about magazines that hold 10 rounds or higher are the ones on the naughty list.
Not only is this dishonest and misleading, but no evidence exists, showing that 10 round magazine bans have any impact on murder numbers. The 10 rounds limit is totally arbitrary. I can only describe it as a number based on an uneducated guess.
If these gun control ideas don't work I have another idea:
How did the law get passed?
We should also eliminate gun manufacturers from the immunity they receive from the Congress. This is the only outfit that is exempt from being sued. If I get one thing on my list… give me that one because I tell you what there would be a come to the Lord moment these folks would have real quickly.
NPR, hardly a right-wing news outlet, addressed this when Hillary Clinton used the same false argument in 2015 as she was campaigning for the Presidency. By the way, she didn't win.
There ya have it, folks. A quick wrap up of President Biden’s speech. Also some reading material for the weekend.
If you’ve made it this far, thank you I have an observation I want to leave you with. Much of this speech and frankly what politicians say is rhetoric designed to appease donors and a voting base who are demanding things.
Things are far from over
So don’t lose hope or assume everything that the president was told to say will come to fruition.
In other words, while what he is calling for is not good, it’s far from law of the land at this point.
Make sure you let us know what you think about the proposals in the comments. And if you like gun industry-related discussions, check out the Concealed Carry Podcast. We talk about a wide variety of topics related to the Second Amendment, Firearms, Self-Defense, Concealed Carry, and more.
You would think that these people would educate themselves on a topic that they are so opposed to but when they talk about firearms and anything related to them they just make themselves look dumb and clueless.
They are not interested in educating themselves or speaking the truth.
The LEFT just keeps saying the same LIES over and over again and their
spawn just lap it up.
All things that Joke Biden is doing is to further the Socialist cause of his
handlers. He is a Train Wreck and should be impeached and removed from office
and him and his whole family should be prosecuted for their treasonous crimes.
Let’s get started on impeachment now.
They are flooding our southern border with illegal aliens, and they’re not Rhodes Scholars, disarming and eliminating the police, printing funny money at a record pace, which will ruin the economy, allowing BLM and Antifa free reign while prosecuting Conservatives for petty crimes. When,you add all of this together, it is an attack on America, with the goal of overthrowing our way of life. What is needed is some serious Federalism. Individual states need to push back against this.
Dumb and clueless to “Us” – since we know better.
But they are talking to their minions who really don’t know better or care.
ie They “want” Dumb and Clueless.
And they are “Building In” the “Fix” so they cannot loose another election.
Letting Illegals in – On-Mass. Building-in Voting by Non-citizens etc. – exa what happened in Ga.
We may be in for a perpetual Dem controlled country.
Beginnings of a Future Communist State.
Reminds me of how Stalin (Communists) did it – just off any opposition.
This is the first anti-American president we ever had. The demacrats just plain hate America and want communism.. My biggest concern is what evil plans are in place if they can unarm law abiding citizens. This is an important issue tossed at us so we forget his other destruction like the border mess and notice no mention of blm terrorist.
Very nice fact about initial gun control legislation not allowing Blacks to own guns. Shows the obscurity and ignorance of the entire concept of gun control.
Their main audience is dumber and even more clueless. And they vote.
They vote with double masks….sad
Do these hoplophobic government officials not realize that as soon as they open their mouths and the words “Gun control” come out they are in violation of the 2nd ammendment?
It sad to believe reasonably law abiding citizens give this much thought. The speech reminds us of a person out of touch with the American people and the laws that we hold dear and follow. Very sad so out of touch.
God bless America!
This entire agenda of Biden’s (rather the people who are really pulling the strings) as nothing to do with their knowledge, or lack thereof, has nothing to do with statistics about gun violence or crimes with guns. It is much bigger. All the infringement and attack on the rights of the American citizens has a far more sinister objective. Their true desire is to eliminate free speech, religious choice, completely modify our education system, disarm the citizenship and destroy the value of the dollar. The intimate objective is communism. Read the seven steps to socialism/communism and ask yourself just how far along we are in those steps. Unless we do something very soon, the American way of life as we know it will no longer exist.
You are correct. We will be under a one party rule if we don’t step up in 2022 and 2024 to rid ourselves from this blight on our government. The Demonrats are going to try and push everything can through congress. They know with their policies and the unpopularity of them they won’t be in power very much longer unless they take drastic actions. A complete take over of our government. We need to take drastic actions before that happens… Just Say’n
How can this be done? Let’s acknowledge the education is lacking in this day and age. I went to school and college it was learning how to defend your position by research and the internet did not count as a legitimate source. Unfortunately the educators today are just teaching students how to regurgitate their opinion. Too many don’t do the research. If no one does the research how can intelligent discussions happen.? If any thought is put into this topic the conclusion is a no brainer – guns do not kill people. People kill people with a tool called a gun.
The only people who weren’t allowed to have guns outside of reservations were the native indians….
The next election will take care of Biden’s new laws. The new majority should have the power to undo a lot of Biden’s BS. Id almost bet voters will elect a majority in congress which will override Biden’s vetoes. The next 2 elections are going to be a continuation of “16”. The people will have enough. Only thing left is the stealing of elections.
If we have a country left by that time… Just Say’n
When a drunk driver kills someone with a car we don’t ban cars.
We put the Drunk in jail.
Less than 4% of gun crime is done by Rifles,
And Less than 1% by AR’s
Watch out for this argument from the Dems:
This is approximate but:
Hillary liked to say/argue that 52k people a yr are killed by “Gun Violence”.
What she did NOT SAY was that about 80% of those were Suicides.
Biden is a fool who is controlled every waking moment. His gun control “laws” are pipe dreams of the uninformed…that’s Biden.
Just like so many other government pogroms, Biden’s gun control agenda will fail to lower crime statistics. He, like so many others before him, fail to recognize it and merely ignore the root cause of criminal behavior and that is governmental repudiation of holding individuals accountable for their actions. As long as our Justice System coddles criminals and refuses to hold them accountable for their behavior by removing them from the midst of civil society the crime rate will continue to explode. Criminals should be dealt with quickly and harshly by the Courts and penal system. Yep, capital punishment is needed to rid us of the worst of the worst. That would send a signal to criminals that they’re days are numbered and it would also open up more prison space for those committing lesser crimes not warranting capital punishment. No mercy given to those who have been merciless.
Biden, the nitwit that he is, follows in the footsteps of previous nitwits before him who would rather cater to criminals than serve justice to the victims.
I am tired of all this gun control malarkey and attacks on our 2nd amendment rights. As for Biden, if he doesn’t have someone holding his hand he is totally lost. The gun control activists are another group of bloviating fools in my opinion. I, for one, have a CCP obtained in 1976 and I have been in full control of it, taken courses on proper handling and gun identification. So, the bottom line is STOP THIS INSANITY regarding we need more control. Enforce the laws on the books currently. They work!!!
Same old ****, just change the wording around! And as the population gets dumber and more dependent on government, eventually they win. Then people open their eyes one day and say “what happened”???
One bill going through Congress would require psychiatric evaluation of gun purchaser, and based on that, possibly family members and ex-spouses…at purchasers expense.
So let’s say we have a veteran who is suffering from PTSD. Symptoms vary widely, but do they all get a blanket ban for gun purchase if diagnosed? And if that qualifies as a ban, what will this do to veterans seeking mental health assistance if they know they will lose their gun rights?
A slippery slope indeed.
This from the guy that said to his wife, if there’s ever a problem, walk out onto the balcony and shoot a shotgun into the air to scare away intruders. Secluded or not, it is dangerous and irresponsible to fire aimlessly. Not all of us get to live behind a fence and have armed people protect us. For regular folks, we have firearms to protect ourselves and those that can’t protect themselves. What’s next? Banning cars that go over 70mph because the driver sped and killed an innocent?
The issue isn’t the gun, the car, or anything else that can be used as a weapon. The responsibility belongs to the person in control. NOT the inanimate object
None of what anyone has said here makes a lick of difference.
When the question is, “Why does government …?”, the answer is “POWER!!”
When the question is, “HOW does government …?”, the answer is “POWER!!”
Theoretically, we, the people, have power, but “theory” is a four-letter word. (Yes, I can count, and, yes, I can spell.)
The only way we have even the first flyin’ flip worth of a hope to retain our God-given rights is to get rid of the scoundrels who are trying to take them from us.
But, there are nearly two years before we can do that. What can we do in the meantime?
It’s hard work. We must write letters (snail mail is actually best). Letters to editors, letters to congress critters, to senators. Letters to governors, to the resident himself, maybe even to Kamal A’Harris.
Then drag out the check books, folks. Find someone who will represent you, and pay for his campaign. Work for his campaign. Tell others about his campaign.
Citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Your grandchildren will thank you.
The only reason the United States has not been over thrown by those that have hated our constitution since the day it was signed is because of our God giving Right to Bare Arms. Every dictator in history has only gain power when they took the guns and disarmed the population. Those that seek power understand that the American’s that are armed will not give up the only thing keeping us a free nation.Stolen elections, open pedophilia, murdering of The unborn the list goes on when is enough enough?when did Americans become so disillusioned, lazy and brain washed?
I am firmly convinced that if those at the highest levels of gov’t. had gun powder for brains they would’nt have enough to blow their noses! SOSDD they all drink the same punch!
Biden was not elected by the people. That the reason for all the extra security. This gun control crap is unconstitutional. Whats going on at the boarder is unconstitutional. These people have all broken their oath and should be removed from office. Wake up Patriots.
Biden is an uninformed idiot. Actually, Joe should have his criminal son arrested for lying on a federal gun form. How about it, Joe? Are you man enough?
I liked reading the previous discussions but none have touched upon two points: 1) It is a given that the end game of those who currently hold power in this country is absolute power and; 2) No matter what right enumerated in the Constitution and its amendments is clearly violated by legislation passed by a Congress, signed into law by a POTUS, and found to be “constitutional” by the SCOTUS to reach that end that we blindly follow those laws to the detriment of ourselves and our country. What if we just said “no” to following those laws? Would we be criminals under the Constitution or under the unconstitutional laws of an illegitimate government? What would you do and why?
The reason the 2nd Amendment is under attack is because those who oppose it know that without the 2nd Amendment, none of the other Amendments matter.
You know it’s a shame that we have to fight against our own government to try and get a fair government, I have no doubt that our fore fathers are all rolling in their Graves right now. They all fought to get us our freedoms, wrote the CONSTITUTION and BILL OF RIGHTS, with much deliberation with the people in mind ( were they perfect and all inclusive NO) but we became the greatest nation on earth. Now we have to stoop to falsifying election results to get a person elected who has the audacity to stand and say no AMENDMENT is hard and fast.
YOU GUYS ARE NUT JOBS!
WE NEED TO GET SOME GOOD COMMON SENSE GUN LAWS TO STOP THIS GUN VIOLENCE EPIDEMIC!
YOUR READERS AND THEIR WILD CONSPIRACY THEORIES MAKE ME LAUGH MY A** OFF!
YOU IDIOTS NEED TO WAKE UP AND GET A CLUE, THESE REPUBLICANS ONLY CARE ABOUT THE RICH GETTING RICHER AND KEEPING THE OIL FLOWING!
WE WILL NEVER FIX THE CLIMATE CHANGE ISSUE WITH HALF OF OUR COUNTRY BEING CLOSED-MINDED IDIOTS!
OBVIOUSLY YOU ALL DON’T GIVE A CRAP ABOUT YOUR GRANDCHILDREN OR THEIR GRANDCHILDREN’S FUTURE!
GET A F***IN CLUE ALREADY! THAT’S RIGHT AFTER JAN. 6 2021 I’M WOKE AF! AND REPUBLICANS (I’M FORMERLY ONE) ARE CONTINUING TO SHOW THEIR RACIST WAYS ARE ALL THAT MATTERS! THE DEMS AREN’T THIS EVIL BUNCH OF PEOPLE YOU ALL PAINT THEM OUT TO BE! THEY JUST WANT TO MAKE THE WHOLE COUNTRY BETTER FOR “ALL” AMERICANS NOT JUST THE “WHITE” REPUBLICANS!
GET A CLUE! GET A HEART! GET A CONSCIENCE! BE DECENT TO ALL AMERICANS!
STOP THE HATE!
I’M SAD TO BE AN AMERICAN RIGHT NOW!
GOD HELP US!
Ok now let’s all remember to not generalize. I am a Democrat and what the president is spewing about gun control is complete nonsense. Yes I am educated enough to realize that Trump also was a pathetic lier. Look politicians make me feel sick to my stomach when it comes to the 2nd amendment and the whole bill of rights. Plus none of them seem to understand its the criminals at fault not firearms. They simple are criminals and by their nature do not follow laws. So let’s just make more laws that do not work. A gang member told me that going to prison was like going to the boys club. What? And the same gang banger said that doing violent crimes gives them juice on the streets. So the problem is guns? The answers are simple if you really look at this with an average IQ. #1 we make prisons so inmates can’t get out. So, we need to make are schools so bad people can not get in with weapons. #2 reinstate HARD TIME for violent criminals and use a weapon in a crime go straight to jail do not pass go and collect $200.#3 Stop letting violent offenders out of prison/jail to make more room. If a weapon of any type is used in a crime its Life in prison..Kill a human being
death penalty except self defense or protecting others. PERIOD.. Just stop putting people in prison and or jail for non violent crimes and have real rehab centers, counseling, job training for government jobs placement, real drug / alcohol treatment for all. Look at how the Scandinavian country’s deal with criminals.#4 Schools need to stop bullying by ZERO TOLERANCE. Teach love and care for of fellow man, especially love for the kids that may have mental issues. Teach our children to friend kids that might get picked on with compassion. Find out with physiological testing what kids might have more of a tendency toward violence so they get assistance early. Educate our youth and if we do it right within 15 years we will see a huge drop in violence in this country. Free upper education for all and government training programs for the historically disinfranchised. Gun control is a racist issue. It started with keep guns away from Indians and slaves.
There is only one Amendment that boldly states: “Shall not be infringed.”
