President Biden signed an executive order, Tuesday, for more gun control by enforcing previous legislation.
The executive order that was signed, this past week, revolves around 2022’s Bipartisan Safe Communities Act. That legislation passed stricter background checks for people buying firearms under the age of 21, expands red flag laws for at risk individuals such as domestic violence offenders, then increases resources for helping victims of gun violence.
Biden’s executive order requires Attorney General Merrick Garland to develop a plan to clarify who is classified as in the business of dealing firearms, which would make them comply with Federal Firearm Licenses (FFLs) and rules.
“It’s a solution searching for a problem, and just compounding for laws already on the books,” Greg Burge – owner of the gun store Beech Grove Firearms – said to WISHTV.
“The government wants to be involved in every facet of the firearms transaction and, in my opinion, this is nothing more than a backdoor universal background check.”
At the scene of January’s mass shooting that killed 11 people in Monterey Park, California, President Biden spoke about his order on Tuesday.
“First, this executive order helps keep firearms out of dangerous hands as I continue to call on Congress to require background checks for all firearm sales. And in the meantime, my executive order directs my attorney general to take every lawful action possible to move us as close as we can to universal background checks without new legislation.”
Biden’s order prevents former FFL licensees, who have had their licenses revoked, from dealing firearms. Then, it would publicly release reports that list citations for FFL dealers.
The administration would also have to make a plan to expand public information campaigns that promote safe gun storage.
Within 180 days, federal law enforcement agencies must increase their requirements to enter criminal investigation ballistic data in the National Intergrated Ballistic Information Network as per another policy made by the DOJ in December.
The Attorney General and the rest of Biden’s administration are tasked to finalize their plans on how to achieve these goals within 60 days.
More new gun laws the criminals won’t follow as they commit more crime. Punish the criminal if they commit a crime with a firearm. Don’t punish our law abiding citizens who have second amendment rights.
Look at England, an island, that does not allow any legal ownership of firearms at home. They have armed criminals committing crimes every day. This idiot would have us try to be like them; only the criminals..and government will have guns. If they need to take away your guns what are they planning on doing to you?
Executive Orders are not laws. They are only directions to the administration about how to enforce laws. Biden will be challenged in court and lose as he has done dozens of times already. He is not a King despite thinking he is. He only has the authority The People delegate to him through the US Constitution and the laws written by our representatives in Congress. Other than that he has no power to violate the Constitution or the laws as written.
AND NO CRIMINAL WILL ABIDE BY ANY OF HIS LUNATIC RAVINGS. Not a single one of them. Biden goes after the low hanging fruit of the law-abiding who are not committing any crimes with their constitutionally guaranteed posses or bearing of arms. This country is now a banana republic run by a pretend president acting as a dictator. Elections have consequences. You all had better remember that next time of you want to keep your LIBERTY.
Gun control isn’t for your safety… It’s for theirs. They know their socialist utopia cannot be inflicted on an armed populace.
That’s why they ignore handguns and go after rifles, despite more people annually being killed by fists and feet than rifles of ALL kinds (not just the scary black ones). Pistols will be useless to fight back against tyranny, so they attack the most effective tool we have: the rifle.
