We finally heard the shot we’ve been expecting: President Joe Biden formally announced his plan for “commonsense gun law reform” Sunday. The White House press release marks a move widely expected since Biden’s inauguration.
President Joe Biden Announces Plans for Gun Law Reform
“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,” Biden said in a release.
The press release backs up Biden’s previous campaign promises. On multiple occasions, Biden promised to ban “assault rifles” and “high-capacity magazines and more. He further promised to cripple the firearm industry by allowing frivolous lawsuits against gun companies. In short, he’s coming for your guns. Don’t let anyone ever suggest otherwise.
The president cashed the agenda in a timed release on the three-year anniversary of the tragic Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. Biden used the shooting as an emotional springboard to announce his promise of sweeping legislation.
Of course, nothing suggests the legislation proposed would do anything to stop mass shootings such as Parkland. In fact, a commission that studied the shooting recommended arming teachers to prevent further violence in schools.
Unfortunately, this press release represents merely the beginning of what surely will prove an unrelenting onslaught against the Second Amendment. Just last week Texas Sheila Jackson Lee introduced HR 127. Should that bill become law, it would enact the most financially and criminally punitive law in history against otherwise law-abiding citizens.
And that’s the big point here. These laws, this movement, it in no way actually fights any crime. It merely punishes the 2A community. Let the Biden-Harris agenda remain ever clear. They unequivocally want to disarm us all. This is only the beginning.
