Looks like Biden is Ready to Move on Gun Control
« on: February 13, 2021, 09:04:57 AM »

Now that Biden is finished with the anti-Trump EOs, he (or his puppet masters) is ready to move on gun control.

Quote
“During the campaign, President Biden laid out an ambitious plan to make our community safer. And that’s why in part, yesterday, senior members of his team … hosted a virtual discussion with leaders of gun violence prevention groups to discuss our shared goals,” said Psaki.

“We look forward to working with gun violence survivors and advocates and sharing more in the weeks and months ahead about our efforts to make our communities safer,” she added.

The main part of Biden’s gun control agenda includes banning the manufacture and sale of “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazines, regulating possession of existing assault weapons under the National Firearms Act, buying back these weapons and high-capacity magazines from citizens, requiring background checks for all gun sales, ending the online sale of firearms and ammunition, and providing more funds to enforce these laws.

The gun control groups who were in attendance at Wednesday’s meeting shared their optimism about getting gun control laws in place that had previously been blocked by the GOP majority in the Senate.

“This meeting provided more evidence that the Biden Administration is committed to being the strongest we’ve ever seen on gun safety,” said John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety, said in a joint press release.

I've noticed that the phrase "gun safety" has been adopted by all of the Dems.  Makes it sound better, but it's still a pile of crap.

Maybe time to spend the money I was saving for a rifle project on magazines, hoping for a grandfather clause in the new AWB that will be shoved up our a$$.

I don't think he's going to get everything he wants on that ''to-do" list.  Trying to put all semi autos on the NFA  is going to be a logistic nightmare.   I think he might get a assault weapon ban but if he tries to take any away the courts will not allow it.

Didn't he sign the senate report on the right to keep and bear arms sometime in the 1980's?  I will see if I can find a copy; I know I downloaded it but that was 4 or 5 computers ago, and it has probably been memory-holed online by now (I'm not yet willing to go in person the National Archives to find a hard copy)

Here ya go: https://ryoc.us/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/1982-Congressional-Report-on-the-Right-to-Keep-and-Bear-Arms.pdf

Don't know if Biden signed it, but he was a member of the Judiciary Committee, which produced it.

I suggest that everyone should download it. I had it bookmarked on another site, from which it has disappeared. Both this report and the 2004 DOJ report keep disappearing, and I don't think that's an accident.

The Supreme Court.   With the Trump justices it seems pretty well positioned to defend the second amendment.  I also don't think every democrat will support what Biden wants.


I could be wrong,  but if I am, then may God Almighty help this country,  because it isn't going to end like  President "Ponysoldier" Biden seems to believe it will.

On Parkland anniversary, Biden calls for tougher gun laws
https://www.wave3.com/2021/02/14/parkland-anniversary-biden-calls-tougher-gun-laws/

Quote
The president used the occasion to call on Congress to strengthen gun laws, including requiring background checks on all gun sales and banning assault weapons.

There was no time to wait, the president said. “We owe it to all those we’ve lost and to all those left behind to grieve to make a change. The time to act is now.”

I believe they will hold off on the really egregious stuff until they get the SCOTUS packed the way they want.  No sense in passing a bunch of unconstitutional laws if there is a 50-50 or better chance the court will overturn them.
But unconstitutional laws are coming once the court is packed.  The Dems are absolutely determined to make their gun control wet dreams come true.
“Don’t be so open-minded that your brains fall out.” - G.K. Chesterton

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

I honestly believe that nothing will push this Balkanized country into killing each other faster than trying to collect "assault weapons".  I think, based on what of seen of other strongly tribal countries, that from where we are now this only ends in bloodshed anyway, but that will hasten it like nothing else.

Yep going to be hard to get away with much until they pack the court. Missouri will push back and so will other states.

Thr Epoch Times mentioned a couple of other things as well:

Quote
Today, 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.”

The problem comes when the gun owners simply refuse to obey an illegitimate government and abrogation of their God given and constitutionally guaranteed rights, and resist. At first, most will duck and stay quiet- that will last for a little while, until enforcement starts and a few people get killed.  That is when the dirty war starts. When it does, the target list will go exponential.

Some of you guys know first hand what this looks like- neighbor against neighbor, cop against cops, neighbor against cop, cop against boss cop,  sister against brother, and on and on and on.  I am fortunate, all my knowledge is from books.

They must know this. Seriously, they must. And it will destroy the country as a governable entity. So why?
The only answer I can come up with is they think an intact functional USA is an impediment to world rule.

Something egregious will happen.  It will be oddly timely.  Talking points and social media campaign will be all ready to go.  The g00gleborg, Twitter and the Book of Faces will squash any opposing voices.

I'd feel a lot more comfortable if cocaine Mitch was in charge right now.
I see no reason to give more power to the state when it can reside with the individual.

“As states are a collection of individual men, which ought we to respect most: the rights of the people composing them, or the artificial beings resulting from the composition?” asked Alexander Hamilton. “Nothing could be more preposterous or absurd than to sacrifice the former to the latter.”

I agree, Mitch would be light years better.

Maybe if the Republicans weren't divided and had all pulled together under Trump in time for the election we wouldn't be in this predicament.

Many, like me, held our nose and supported pappa Bush, Dole, McCain, Romney and other *expletive deleted*it sandwiches the establishment served up in a show of solidarity.

The establishment shows little to no solidarity with their voters ie base.

Now, how many of us have moved on to the accelerationist point of view?

Let the leftists take over, let the whole Republican Party lose every election and hopefully survive the eventual leftist collapse and be there to help pick up the pieces and rebuild.
 
If the moronic Republicans think they are going to go back to their business as usual practices cutting the MAGA crowd out then they have a rude awakening coming I suspect.

I'd probably support a return to MAGA but I'm willing to let it all burn down before supporting the establishment/neo-con traitors ever again.

Some more stuff being introduced:

Quote
Chairwoman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) recently introduced a gun-control package to try to prevent the type of mass shooting that occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas.

The package includes The Gun Trafficking and Crime Prevention Act (pdf), The Gun Show Loophole Closing Act (pdf), The NICS Review Act (pdf), The Firearm Risk Protection Act (pdf), and The Handgun Trigger Safety Act (pdf).
