NRA: If Biden Wins “he will destroy our Second Amendment”


Make no mistake Americans, Democrats are coming for your guns.

If Biden wins in November, you’ll see your rights stripped from you.

All in the name of safety and security.

Take the NRA’s word for it.

They posted the following tweet to make voters aware of what a Biden presidency would look like:

Take a look at this one too:

It's none of the government's business if you want to own an AR-15.

And as you can see, Biden isn't afraid to pass legislation compelling you to turn it over to the government.

Here's a summary of Biden's gun control plan from Vox:

Biden does have a record, and a plan, in favor of gun control. In the 1990s, he was a top Democrat in getting both federal background checks and a 10-year assault weapon ban enacted. Biden has often boasted that he has “taken on the National Rifle Association (NRA) on the national stage and won — twice.”

As part of his presidential campaign, Biden introduced a sweeping gun control plan that includes universal background checks, an assault weapons ban, more resources toward the enforcement of existing gun laws, a public push for the development of “smart guns,” and incentives for states to adopt “red flag” laws, which let courts confiscate guns from people deemed a risk to themselves or others and develop gun-licensing systems.

With mass shootings and more typical everyday gun violence regularly making headlines, there’s a lot of support for Democrats to act on gun control — with more recent support coming from movements like March for Our Lives, which formed after the 2018 Parkland, Florida, school shooting in which a gunman killed 17 people and injured 17 others.

But there are still questions about how likely gun control is to pass. For one, it would almost certainly require Democrats to retake the Senate — an electoral feat on top of winning the White House. And if Democrats do take the Senate, it’s unclear if they’d prioritize action on gun violence over Covid-19, the economy, climate change, health care, and criminal justice.

Biden’s plan would make sweeping changes to federal gun laws, with universal background checks, an assault weapons ban, and red flag laws checking off much of what activists have demanded over the past few years.

Biden’s plan would also close several loopholes in existing law, repeal a law that made it harder to sue gun manufacturers and sellers when they make or sell guns they should have known would be diverted to criminal uses, limit the number of guns an individual can purchase to one per month, require safe storage, finance strategies to combat urban violence, and fund more research into preventing gun violence.

Still, the plan doesn’t go as far as some of Biden’s Democratic rivals did during the primary. Sens. Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren, for example, proposed a federal licensing system — one that would require everyone in the US to obtain a license to buy and own firearms. But Biden’s plan only includes financial incentives for states to adopt licensing, which they could decline to do.

The NRA isn't the only group concerned about Biden's hostility towards guns:

The Hill has more to say on Biden's gun plan:

Biden’s plan to end gun violence includes a proposed buyback program to collect assault weapons and high-capacity magazines that are already within communities. His plan also calls for banning the manufacturing and sale of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, requiring a background check for all gun purchases and decreasing the stockpiling of firearms.

The NRA has supported President Trump in the past, including giving $36 million to back his campaign in 2016.

Meanwhile, gun control group Brady PAC, which endorsed Biden in March, has raised $100,000 for the Biden campaign, as it aims to hit $250,000.

The NRA’s tweets come after New York state filed a lawsuit against the group that accuses it of violating state laws governing nonprofits and calls for the NRA to be dissolved.

They also follow fatal shootings in the last week at protests in Kenosha, Wis., and Portland, Ore. The gun used in Kenosha was reportedly an AR-15 style rifle.
