Biden rolls out initial gun control measures


Looks like a lot of smoke and mirrors regarding Biden and his gun control nonsense. Ghost guns are already illegal since forever. More noise to try and amp us up. Though we best keep our eye on David Chipman who they plan as ATF Director.

The Biden White House has released a preview of President Joe Biden’s executive actions on gun control, which he plans to sign Thursday afternoon. The administration is also arguing additional gun control is needed to fight a “public health” crisis and pushing hard for “red flag laws,” which often violate civil liberties.

“Today, the Biden-Harris Administration is announcing six initial actions to address the gun violence public health epidemic,” the White House released late Wednesday. “This Administration will not wait for Congress to act to take its own steps.”

Here are the six actions, from the White House “fact sheet.”

The Justice Department, within 30 days, will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of “ghost guns.”

The Justice Department, within 60 days, will issue a proposed rule to make clear when a device marketed as a stabilizing brace effectively turns a pistol into a short-barreled rifle subject to the requirements of the National Firearms Act.

The Justice Department, within 60 days, will publish model “red flag” legislation for states.

The Administration is investing in evidence-based community violence interventions.

The Justice Department will issue an annual report on firearms trafficking.

The President will nominate David Chipman to serve as Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.

Biden’s choice for ATF Director, David Chipman, is a longtime gun control activist who has done extensive lobbying for anti-Second Amendment groups funded by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the Giffords Law Center. He was also involved in the Branch Davidian trial after the government — specifically ATF and FBI — botched a raid in Waco, Texas. Bad decisions made by federal agents ultimately resulted in the deaths of 76 people, including pregnant women and dozens of children.

    There might not be much here but this is just his first wave, no doubt there will be more. I am still upset more people didn’t get upset when Trump banned bump stocks. That in and of itself was not a big deal but it set the precedent that Biden is now going to use.

    As he said, no Amendment is absolute. And of course the 2nd Amendment only applies to the militia – you know, the National Guard who actually need guns so they can shoot us for not wearing a mask or standing less than 6 feet from anothee human being. That’s what the founders intended.

    David Chipman appears to be a clear and present danger to our 2nd Amendment rights! 😡

    Hey, all you GOPers who voted against Trump in November, I hope you’re satisfied with what you have wrought!

      Staying home on Election Day was an overwhelming demonstration of support for Joe Biden, a mental flat-liner. And then we have that group of people who profess to be “conservative” who did nothing but bitch about Trump’s tweeting ad nauseam who now complain about the Biden presidency. Seems to be a validation of that axiom; Americans deserve the government they elect…

    The subtitle for this piece could be “-or- More Evidence that no Democratic politician has ever had a clue.”

    Nature is a remarkable thing. For example, did you know that the reproductive cycle of wild creatures is instinctually limited by the availability of food and water sources? We had a real problem with ground squirrels and rattlesnakes at Camp Pendleton one year. So, the sergeant major went out and purchased some Decon, and the ground squirrels all but disappeared. Shortly after, with reduced sources of food, the rattlesnakes disappeared, too. It took around 18 months for all this to happen, but it did the trick.

    Human critters are a bit different, though. Trying to limit firearms inside urban cesspools such as Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore will have an opposite and unwanted effect. Without firearms, people in those cities will be overrun by dangerous human critters. No matter where they come from, firearms have a population-stabilizing effect within the heinous sub-cultures (they used to be called crypts and bloods, but I’m afraid I’m no longer conversant about that sort of thing). What if there had been no population stabilizing influence in South Chicago over the past twenty years? Can you imagine how overpopulated that city would be today in criminal filth?

    It seems to me that when dangerous critters are killing other dangerous critters, there is evidence that nature has stepped in to limit the population of dangerous critters. Plus, were it not for firearms, no matter where they come from, then the dangerous critters would resort to some other method of killing themselves — such as machetes, which are much messier. Anyway, if we truly want to divest our peace-loving communities of dangerous tribal groups, we should be sending truckloads of free handguns and ammo to such cities. The more guns those people have, the quicker they will self-eradicate. As for gun control? Sure … for gosh sakes, let’s keep those free guns away from anyone under the age of 10.

    OK, let me begin: ‘Ghost guns are already illegal since forever.’ Wrong answer. There is no such thing as a ‘ghost gun.’ You have the absolute right to manufacture a firearm for your own purposes. Transferring it to another is another issue and is on questionable legal ground. What you refer to as a ‘ghost gun’ is actually a piece of aluminum. I can use your local Midas Muffler shop to machine a 3 pound bar block of aluminum in to a very functional lower receiver. So once again we fall in to the progressive public policy trap of blaming inanimate objects for evil behavior and not Mens Rea. Evil intent should be the focus of all criminal law. Intent and not potential or perceived means. Focus on the evil and those who do the evil. Leave the bar stock alone. Have a happy day. Semper Fi

      If I construct a gun and never break any laws by threatening someone with it or robbing somebody with it, how will dementia Joe or horizontal Harris know if I have a gun?

      If I don’t ever construct a gun (but support gun rights), how will dementia Joe or horizontal Harris not know that I don’t have a gun?

        Mark, if you don’t want Joe to know you are making firearms in your garage, then for gosh sakes, remove your smart-TV from the machine shop and never wear your Apple watch while you’re machining firing pins.

        I don’t have a smart TV or any Apple products (not even close — since my Mac clone cratered over 20 years ago). I would not make a gun in a space as easily accessed from the outside as a garage usually is.

      Democrats are really big on symbolic responses consisting of addressing symptoms rather than the underlying cause. A Democrat doctor would cure Cobid-19 by putting the patient in ice water to bring down the fever without ever asking what caused the fever.

      Likewise, Democrats cure homelessness by putting 1% of homeless people into hotel rooms. Never mind the other 99% and never mind the fact that being homeless is a symptom of their problem, not their problem itself. Every one of those people had a home and lost it. Why did they lose it? What does being in a hotel room change for them? They are still drug addicts or are mentally ill.

      Likewise, when media and politicians spew fear and hatred nonstop for years and people respond by becoming angry and shooting people, we blame the guns. We don’t ask why the shooters are angry. We don’s ask what made them angry. We just suppose that taking the guns away will make them gently, loving and peaceful people.

      In 2019, there were 13,927 homicides in the US — around 10,166 of those committed by “handguns,” … noting that all guns must be operated by hand, but that’s just semantics. That means that nearly 4,000 homicides were committed by other means — hammers, screwdrivers, knives, razor blades, tire irons, steam irons, poisons, etc. So, in terms of our population of 328.2 million people, we have a homicide rate of .000424344911639. Of those 13,927, 99.223% probably had it coming.

      In terms of demographics, most murders occurred in CA and TX, where there are large Hispanic populations. Gun and knife fights are popular entertainment at Mexican weddings and fiesta de quinceañera gatherings. A caring, nurturing, responsible leftist society should try to limit such gatherings. Now, if Juan and Maria were smart, and I’m not suggesting any such thing, then they’d hire national guard units to attend their weddings because so far, the evidence suggests that concertina wire and national guard troops limit violence at some locations and events, such as inaugurations and congressional meetings. Or they might be able to rent a few off-duty secret service agents to mix with guests at wedding receptions.

      I’d like to thank Peter and Kid for helping me out with these statistics.

    Give credit where credit is due. Unlike Spunky and Tadpole and their cohorts doing the anti second amendment dance at least Hitler, Stalin, Mao Mussolini, Castro et al upon seizing power had the pelotas to come right out and take away their citizens guns.

    So will Biden include an executive order telling criminals to stop breaking the law? Or will Biden make trade of gun barrels illegal? Will he register 3-D printers or metal stamping tools?
