2nd Amendment: Right to keep and bear Arms
Biden and the Left's War on 2nd Amendment
Biden and the Left's War on 2nd Amendment. Democrat Joe Biden has unveiled his far-left agenda by signing a new gun-control executive order while announcing his anti-Second Amendment nominee to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF).
On Wednesday evening, the White House released a fact sheet announcing that Biden will use the Department of Justice (DOJ) to publish model red flag “legislation.”
The move will also address AR-pistols with stabilizer braces and issue a rule to “stop the proliferation of ‘ghost guns.'”
On Thursday, Biden put forward executive action on gun controls, and the fact sheet provides an outline detailing what those actions may entail.
In the statement, the administration outlined the following “initial actions” in Biden's anti-gun rights agenda:
Gun sales up 73% from 2019
Gun sales up 73% from 2019. Americans bought 21 million firearms this year, new figures show
Gun sales in the United States have soared in 2020 following a year of radical-left violence against the backdrop of a global pandemic.
Americans purchased 21 million firearms this year, according to the latest figures.
The number marks a staggering increase of 73 percent over the number purchased in 2019.
The estimated 21 million guns sold was revealed in an ABC News report that quotes figures from The Trace.
ABC claims the buying surge is the result of a “perfect storm” consisting of “the pandemic, economic recession, civil unrest, and a divisive presidential election.”
FBI: 4x more deaths by knives than assault rifles
FBI: 4x more deaths by knives than assault rifles. FBI Statistics: At Least 4 Times More People Were Killed With Knives Than “Assault Rifles” Last Year.
In recent years liberals have been wise enough to shift their gun control focus specifically to so-called “assault weapons,” rather than all guns.
It’s no mystery why they’ve shifted that focus; banning all guns (and handguns in particular) is wildly unpopular, so they’ve instead decided to focus on the type of firearms that tend to look the “scariest” to some people. In particular, “assault rifles” like the AR-15 have been a scapegoat of the left, due to how frequently they’re the weapon of choice in highly publicized mass public shootings (though the majority of mass shootings are committed with handguns when you count gang shootings as mass shootings).
