Is Joe Biden coming for your gun rights?
It’s scary to consider when you look at the Democrat’s history of being a senator and Vice-President that consistently fought against constitutional rights. This wasn’t something that was overly touched upon during the 2020 presidential campaign either, even though it’s common knowledge that President Donald Trump is way more supportive of gun rights — although we can’t say he’s exactly perfect.
On a very basic level, Trump is a member of the NRA, and Joe Biden definitely is not. So what are some of the other ways that Biden has shown his general disinterest in the Second Amendment? Let’s look at five ways Biden and Kamala Harris could demolish gun rights in the future.
He Supports All Gun Control Policies
When you look at Biden’s website, it’s clear that he supports all gun control policies. He even has an entire page dedicated to gun control. They call it the “Biden Plan to End Our Gun Violence Epidemic.” It goes on to say that as a senator, he has defeated the NRA twice in support of the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, and the 10-year ban on assault weapons in 1994.
More Taxes for Gun Owners
Another bit of bad news for gun owners is that Biden supports a new gun tax. This tax would make gun owners pay an extra $200 for any semi-automatic guns they own, and on any 10+ magazines. For most gun owners, that adds up to thousands and thousands of dollars each. If people don’t want to pay the tax, the alternative is a buyback program.
The Banning of Many Semi-Automatic Firearms
Biden is also in favor of banning certain types of guns. That includes many commonly owned semi-automatic firearms that are considered “assault weapons.” So that may be shotguns, rifles, and pistols that shoot intermediate cartridges. He believes high-capacity magazines that hold more than 10 bullets should also not be allowed anymore.
Ending the Sale of Gun Parts Over the Internet
Another one of Biden’s poor ideas on gun control is to end the sale of gun parts over the internet. This would include all “build-kits” and gun parts which would make it very hard for the average person to tinker and repair their rightfully owned weapons.
More Litigation for the Firearm Industry
The gun industry would need to be on the lookout for ridiculous lawsuits that threaten to derail their businesses. Biden and Harris both support these groups that have endless amounts of money to keep the gun companies in court, which could ultimately lead to their bankruptcy. He even said during the election year that “our enemy is the gun manufacturers.” That’s a bold and truly anti-Second Amendment statement.
Hopefully, all of the things Biden and Harris want to do about gun control won’t be successful. They are surely going to get a lot of pushback from gun rights organizations like the NRA and Gun Owners of America. It’s a shame that two anti-Second Amendment politicians are going to spend the next four years leading our country because our gun rights could be at stake.
