I'm coining a new phrase for this upcoming election that seems to be the mantra from everyone who plans to vote for creepy uncle joe. It goes like this: “Just vote blue, no matter who! Even if he hasn't got a clue.”
Ya know, because he doesn't have a clue. I'm not even sure if he knows which planet he's currently living on, let alone the fact that he's running for president and NOT the senate.
Hear me out on something — it's rarely my goal to get involved in politics. Then again, we love guns and freedom, something the gun grabbers don't seem to like very much. Because guns are constantly politicized, it's really hard for us to not get involved from time to time.
And, while I've got no problem going after the right or the left when they oppose freedom, the left seems to do it more, so I tend to pick on them more.
This is a political opinion piece that's also got some factual newsy type stuff strewn about coming from the horse's mouth (Joe's campaign website). You've been warned, and this is your last chance to leave before I step into the political zone.
Joe Biden's gun control agenda is atrocious. And, because his gun control plan is so bad for America, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that he's a lying sack of wrinkled potatoes. Why? Because if you ask him, he says he's not coming after our guns.
Here's his campaign page indicating clearly that he is going straight after our guns. To make matters worse, not only is he lying about coming after our guns, he doesn't even know half of what he's saying. *UPDATE: The link to Joe Biden's Campaign website no longer works, but nearly 3 years into his presidency, we see how he has assaulted American freedoms*
If he's asked what an “assault weapon” is, he cannot give an answer. If he's asked to speak about guns, he is clearly clueless as to definitions or even things that should be counted as common knowledge.
And then he tells us that he's pro Second Amendment. But, only so much as it's concerned for hunting and not defense — which is the real reason why the 2A was put into the Constitution to begin with.
The founding fathers never thought it necessary to guarantee the right to hunt with guns, since that was the primary way of putting food on the table. But, being that they just won a war to win their freedom, they thought it a good thing to put that pesky Second Amendment in there. Ya know, just in case.
In case what? Just in case some crazy old man decides he doesn't want us to own guns to be able to defend ourselves.
The Second Amendment is for self-defense and defense against tyranny. Tyranny is clearly something Biden is is into.
Why else would he want to take away our guns but try to hide it, but not actually be able to hide it because he's an idiot and put it out there for all to see while still denying his true agenda? Why? Because he doesn't want us to be able to fight back.
I've ranted for long enough. Here are the worst parts about crazy uncle Joe's gun control plan, though there is a lot more than I'm going to cover:
Hold gun manufacturers accountable
The 2005 protection of lawful commerce in arms act protects gun manufacturers from lawsuits they had no control over. If Joe had his way, he'd make this go away so they could get sued for things they didn't control — like murders.
That is equivalent to Ford, Toyota, GM, or the others getting sued because a drunk driver killed someone. It's asinine.
Ban manufacture and sale of “assault weapons” and “high capacity magazines”
Joe plans to put countless businesses out of work with the banning of the manufacture of inanimate objects that, by themselves, hurt nobody. With a crazy uncle Joe presidency, the manufacture and sale of “assault weapons” and “high capacity mags” will be banned.
Let this sink in for a moment, he wants to ban something he cannot define. He's been asked before what an assault weapon was and had no answer. Then, when confronted in person about his agenda, he LIED to them.
Regulate the possession of existing “assault weapons” under NFA
Currently machine guns, suppressors, and similar are highly regulated. He plans to make “assault weapons” regulated under the NFA. This means that anyone who wants to own whatever this looney tune defines as an “assault weapon” will have to jump through hoops to buy one.
“Assault weapon” buy back
What's an assault weapon? Nobody (including Biden) knows, but whatever it is, you can't own one. They'll be putting forth a “buy back” on “assault weapons” that they've never owned, nor can they define. Oh, and your made up hundred clip magazines? Yeah, he's gonna buy those back too.
Biden plans to reduce the number of guns any person can buy to one per month.
End online sales
Biden plans to put countless eCommerce retailers out of business by completely ending the sale of all online gun and ammo sales. Not only would this hurt the firearm community and businesses, but the overall American economy will suffer greatly as hundreds of thousands of people find themselves out of work.
Incentivize the states to have red flag laws
Joe plans to incentivize states to make extreme risk protection orders into law. These red flag laws authorize family members or law enforcement to remove a person's firearms. These are extremely controversial in that there are no guarantees and such laws are un-Constitutional to the extreme degree.
Stop ghost guns
We've known (or at least suspected) for a while that so called “ghost guns” were going to be a problem. Joe plans to ban the sale of “a kit of disassembled gun parts or 3D printing” something into a working firearm. He plans to pass legislation to force purchasers of “gun kits or 3D printing code” to pass a background check.
He wants us to go through background checks for gun parts and pieces of aluminum that aren't yet something that can be used for anything other than as a paperweight or club.
Let all of that sink in for a moment.
Again, those were just the worst parts of Joe Biden's gun control plan. Visit his page linked to above if you'd like to vomit in your mouth.
By the way —
We'd be among the companies likely put out of business if this comes to fruition or at least downsized to numbers never imagined before. If these things come into play there would be no need for us because owning a gun would essentially become a thing of the past. One way or the next, we need to get out there and vote because, as usual, our very freedoms hinge on it.
Then again, there is another, less friendly option.
Joe Biden, Bad for America. My name is Josh and I approve this message.
UPDATE: Here is the breakdown of a speech the president gave on April 8th, 2021. It's worth the read.
