Biden called for congress to tighten its hold on American’s 2nd Amendment rights and demanding gun laws and law suit restrictions regarding firearm manufacturers, according to The Daily Wire.
“I am calling on Congress to enact commonsense gun law reforms, including requiring background checks on all gun sales, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and eliminating immunity for gun manufacturers who knowingly put weapons of war on our streets,” Biden wrote.
Biden called for “banning assault weapons”. these claims did not specify whether current assault rifle owners are able to keep the firearms they currently own.
This could mean a nationwide mandatory gun confiscation-type program.
Bump stocks are now officially illegal in the U.S.
Anyone selling or owning bump stocks could face up to 10 years in federal prison and a fine of $250,000 for each violation.
“In fact, no bump stocks will be ‘grandfathered in.’”
“The new federal rule reclassifies them all as ‘machine guns,’ no matter when they were purchased, and owning one will become a felony.”
“A reduction in gun deaths is most likely to come from finding smaller chances for victories and expanding those solutions as much as possible.”
“We save lives by focusing on a range of tactics to protect the different kinds of potential victims and reforming potential killers, not from sweeping bans focused on the guns themselves.”
From The Daily Wire:
When gun control activists use the term “weapons of war,” they are generally using it in such a way as to portray the weapons that they want to ban as “weapons” that are used in “war,” as in used by militaries. However, this is inaccurate because the types of weapons that gun control activists are referring to, usually AR-15-style rifles, are not used in war. The variants of those rifles that are currently sold by gun manufacturers in the U.S. are semi-automatic firearms, not the fully automatic versions that are used by military.
Biden’s call on Congress to restrict Americans’ constitutionally protected Second Amendment rights comes after his call for “unity.”
Approximately one out of every three Americans own a firearm, nearly half the country lives in a household where firearms are present, and there are more firearms than people in the United States. Gun sales smashed all-time records last year amid the pandemic and violent riots that broke out in major U.S. cities, which are largely run by Democrats. Nearly five million Americans bought a firearm for the very first time last year.
