Dems to Push For Gun Control Bills Vote In 2 Weeks

Published

on

Reportedly, the Biden administration wants to schedule a controversial vote on gun control bills within the next few weeks. The moves come after President Joe Biden called on Congress to crack down on Second Amendment rights.

Reviving Gun Control Bills 

A Punchbowl News report said that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other House Democrats, after passing the American Rescue Plan, will now turn their attention to other items on their agenda. In particular, This includes drafting laws to tighten gun control. Additionally, Democrats will “push through as much legislation as they can” within the next two weeks.

Some of the reported legislation includes reviving HR 8 of 2019, or the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019. Specifically, HR 8 aims to use the current US background checks process to prevent individuals prohibited from gun possession from obtaining firearms. Another bill proposes to close the so-called “Charleston Loophole,” which allows gun purchases to continue within three days even with an incomplete background check. In fact, both bills passed the House during the previous Congress. However, the Republican-majority Senate managed to block the bills from passing.

NRA Tweets Warning

The National Rifle Association tweeted a warning on March 2. The group warned gun advocates of Biden’s “extreme gun control” agenda. Additionally, they said that moves to push it will surface in Congress within the next few weeks. “Sources in DC report that Congress will be voting on Biden’s extreme gun control legislation as early as next week. Possible that they will bypass the committee process. Stay tuned, NRA members,” the NRA tweeted.

Previously, Biden wrote Congress urging to pass more gun control bills. “I am calling on Congress to enact common-sense 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,” he wrote.

Drastic Measures

The Daily Wire reported that some of Biden’s proposals remain unclear. The call to ban assault weapons likely referred to semiautomatic weapons. However, semi-automatics remain legal for civilian use. The proposal isn’t clear if current semiautomatic weapon owners can keep their guns. If not, this law would turn into a gun confiscation program.

In addition, Biden called on Congress to hold gun manufacturers liable. He said manufacturers who ‘knowingly put weapons of war on our streets’ are liable. The term “weapons of war” is unclear. In fact, civilian firearms do not have access to weapons that the military uses. US gun manufacturers can only sell semi-automatic firearms to civilians. Also, the proposal looks to bankrupt manufacturers. Actually, the proliferation of guns in the streets is likely a matter of criminal activity.

No Limit on Limiting The Second Amendment

“There is seemingly little limit to what Biden wants to target when it comes to the Second Amendment, ranging from taxing gun owners, banning magazines ‘that can hold multiple bullets in them,’ offering ‘no compromise‘ on the issue and making other incoherent remarks like claiming that a ‘rational policy‘ on guns is making sure you cannot have 20, 30, 40, 50 clips in a weapon,’” The Daily Wire reported. “While on the campaign trail, Biden said that far-left gun control activist Beto O’Rourke was going to be the one who leads this effort’ for the Biden administration. O’Rourke has called for confiscating firearms from Americans,” it added.

Meanwhile, Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that Biden is open to use other methods. The administration looks to bypass Congress and instead issue executive orders.

Four Prong Attack Against Firearms Ownership

Alan Gottlieb, the founder of the Second Amendment Foundation, said in a recent interview that Biden launched a “four-prong attack against firearms ownership” that targets the entire country. This attack does not include the executive orders Biden reportedly considers to issue. 

“One is universal background check is really a universal registration system. Second is banning assault weapons and then defining assault weapons as almost any semi-automatic firearm. The third is banning magazines that hold more than 10 rounds, you know, again, hurts people twice for self-defense in our country, and then attacking the firearms industry so that any criminal that goes out and misuses a gun, the gun manufacturer can be sued for it, it’s going to put the industry out of business and nobody can buy a gun,” Gottlieb says.

    Apparently the political machine in Washington, D.C. has not read the world history regarding the right to bear arms keeps the people free from dictatorial governments being allowed to fill prisons with law abiding citizens while allowing terrorists to run the country for their own purposes! My family heritage has centuries of law enforcement involvement – never to abuse but rather protect citizens from abuse by their governments political corruptness! My weapons are for my family’s protection – regardless of where a treat comes from. Those who attempt to take my rights will find resistance in abundance at my door. Your business ends where my nose begins. GOT IT???

    I am a proud American. The Second Amendment, as well as the First Amendment, are a part of what makes America different from China and other countries. Thousands of people in this country love to hunt. Many thousands love competition shooting like skeet. Many farmers and ranchers need guns to protect their cattle and crops against predators. People may need to protect themselves against things like the Black Lives Matter movement that burns buildings and cars and loots stores, while no one pays attention. I got my first 22 rifle when I was 7 years old. I have owned guns ever since. I have NEVER broken the law with a gun and I am now 70. I can not believe it has come down to the politicians dictating what Americans can have and do. So I guess our Constitution isn’t worth the paper it was written on. Then why do we follow the rules put there by extreme left politicians? When they do this, I think what happened at the Capital is going to look like nothing. I am glad I am 70, I don’t have too long to watch our beautiful country fall apart. We are already 27 trillion dollars in debt. In five years, if it is that long, we will no longer be a world power. We are becoming a joke to many countries already. What do they think the country boys are going to do when a politician takes their guns. What do they think the people that grew up hunting and shooting skeet and other competitions are going to do when a politician takes away their guns. God forbid, what do they think all those militants the politicians like to call white supremacists are going to do when the politicians take their guns away.. there are literally millions and millions of people who own guns. There are thousands of businesses that sell guns, have shooting ranges, make guns, make ammunition, etc. How many people will be unemployed? Just keep taking politicians, keep passing those bills for a couple more trillion borrowed dollars. At some point that money will have to be paid. My children and grand children will have to pay the price. They will have a country that is no better than China. The politicians don’t care. Most of them are old and will be gone. The rest will be rich and not care. The Supreme Court should step in and stop this nonsense. Who in their right mind thinks stopping law abiding citizens from having a gun or two is going to stop crime. The criminals will have guns, that’s why they are called criminals. One of the largest mass killings, 27 people, was done with a knife. Sick people will find a way to do sick things. Just look at the politicians! I for one can not believe what has happened to our beautiful country. We went from being pretty much energy sufficient and paying $1.99 a gallon , to being dependent on foreign fuel. Yes, I know, by 2035 we will be using all electric vehicles and such. I have heard that since I was in high school, hasn’t happened yet. Sorry to ramble but this is getting close to the last straw. If they monkey with the First Amendment, we may not have much of a country left . For many reasons.

    Hell no. If we allow the leftists to control our gun rights it won’t be long before our 1st ammendment rights will be taken.Then it will be the entire constitution gone. I dont want a socialist government. Down w/Bernie Sanders and all who think like him. That’s not a Democratic government.Up with the Constitution as it is written.

All I have to say is you want mine you GODDAMN better bring yours. There attempt will result in a revolutionary war. I have a suggestion how about that loser O Rourke come and take them himself. The fucking coward will ultimately have someone else do his dirty work.
