Joe Biden, the “moderate,” made it clear earlier in the year that he was going after the Second Amendment.
He demanded that Congress pass sweeping legislation banning “assault weapons,” among other restrictions. But it is unlikely progress will be made in Congress, seeing as how there probably isn’t enough support in the Senate.
But never let it be said that Joe Biden won’t abuse his executive authority. He said this wasn’t the way a President should do it during the primaries, but it looks like he’s doing a 180.
Seeing how Congress won’t obey, he’s using his executive power to order the DOJ to go after the 2nd Amendment.
From Fox News:
President Biden on Thursday announced a set of executive actions and legislative proposals on gun control, saying that gun violence is “a public health crisis” and the administration’s actions do not contravene Second Amendment rights…
Biden is also asking the DOJ to propose within 60 days a rule on braces used for handguns, which make them more accurate; to propose action on “community violence intervention”; to publish suggestions for “red flag” legislation; and is asking his administration to issue a report on gun trafficking.
Many believe Joe Biden is trying to use the DOJ to infringe on Americans’ gun rights.
Claiming it to be a “public health crisis,” Joe is directing the Department of Justice to pass a variety of rules aimed at whittling away at the 2nd Amendment.
No, Joe, gun ownership is not a public health crisis. But do you know what is? Letting hundreds of thousands of people flood the border.
Biden is calling on the DOJ to pass rules to outlaw “ghost guns,” or kits that allow people to buy gun parts.
He also wants the DOJ to pass rules on handgun braces, which actually make them more accurate (and help people with disabilities protect themselves).
Biden is also ordering the DOJ to provide guidance to states to pass more “red flag” laws, which give law enforcement the power to take guns from law-abiding citizens (with no warrants).
Isn’t it odd that Biden is trying to take out “ghost guns” and handgun braces? These aren’t things normally connected to “mass shootings” or gun violence.
Biden is just testing the waters. If he can get away with banning these uncontroversial parts, then he can push much harsher restrictions in the future.
The only recourse is for Republican states to push back via lawsuits. No “president” has the power to circumvent Congress in order to trample on Americans’ rights.
Do you think Americans should defend their 2nd Amendment rights?
- Joe Biden is directing the DOJ to infringe on Americans’ Second Amendment rights.
- His order targets “ghost guns” as well as handgun braces, among other restrictions.
- Biden wants the DOJ to direct states to pass “red flag” laws as well.
