Biden Announces Latest Assault on the 2nd Amendment


On Tuesday, Biden announced his latest tyrannical measure against Americans’ inalienable right to bear arms.

The White House resident’s newest gun control executive order will expand background checks and red flag laws.

“I announced an executive order on gun violence to intensify our work to save lives. It will keep firearms out of dangerous hands, takes every lawful action to move as close to universal background checks without new legislation, expands awareness about red flag laws, and more,” whoever runs Biden’s Twitter account wrote.

The Executive Order aims to:

“Increase the number of background checks by ensuring that all background checks required by law are conducted before firearm purchases, moving the U.S. as close to universal background checks as possible without additional legislation.”

“Improve public awareness and increase appropriate use of extreme risk protection (“red flag”) orders and safe storage of firearms.”

“Address the loss or theft of firearms during shipping.”

From the White House:

Today, in Monterey Park, California, President Biden will announce an Executive Order with the goal of increasing the number of background checks conducted before firearm sales, moving the U.S. as close to universal background checks as possible without additional legislation. The Executive Order will also keep more guns out of dangerous hands by increasing the effective use of “red flag” laws, strengthen efforts to hold the gun industry accountable, and accelerate law enforcement efforts to identify and apprehend the shooters menacing our communities. President Biden is also encouraging the Federal Trade Commission to issue a public report analyzing how gun manufacturers market firearms to minors.

President Biden is traveling to Monterey Park to grieve with the families and community impacted by the mass shooting that claimed 11 lives and injured nine others in January. Monterey Park is part of a growing list of communities all across the country that are forever changed due to gun violence—not only mass shootings, but also daily acts of gun violence that may not make national headlines.

Last year, President Biden signed into the law the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, the most significant gun violence reduction legislation enacted in nearly 30 years. When celebrating the Act’s passage, he called on Congress to seize the bipartisan momentum and advance additional commonsense steps to reduce gun violence. Again and again, he has called for Congress to act, including by banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, requiring background checks for all gun sales, requiring safe storage of firearms, closing the dating violence restraining order loophole, and repealing gun manufacturers’ immunity from liability.

As he continues to call on Congress to act, President Biden will do everything he can to reduce gun violence and save lives. That is why, over the past two years, President Biden has taken more executive action to reduce gun violence than any other president at this point in their presidency.

Biden again called to ban “assault weapons.”

“I’m determined, once again, to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. I led that fight to ban them in 1994. The ten years that law was in place, mass shootings went down,” Biden said.

“Ban assault weapons! Ban them again. Do it now! Enough! Do something! Do something big.”

Fox News reported:

Under the executive order, Biden is also directing Attorney General Merrick Garland to develop and implement a plan to prevent former federally licensed firearms dealers, whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered, from continuing to engage in the business of dealing in firearms.

The order will also improve public awareness and increase the use of extreme protection, like “red flag” laws and safe storage of firearms.

Biden is directing his Cabinet to encourage the “effective use” of those orders by partnering with law enforcement, health care providers, educators and other community leaders. Biden is also directing members of his Cabinet to expand existing federal campaigns and efforts to promote safe storage of firearms.

The order will also direct Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, in consultation with the Department of Justice, to work to “reduce the loss or theft of firearms during shipment” and to improve the reporting of such losses or thefts by engaging with carriers and shippers.

The White House said the order will also hold the gun industry “accountable” by providing the public and policymakers with “more information regarding federally licensed firearms dealers who are violating the law.”
