Biden plan spelled out

Anyone who believes Biden is pro-Second Amendment should view his website, JoeBiden.com, and read under the headline “The Biden plan to end our gun violence epidemic.”

Biden brags that he has twice taken on the NRA and won. In 1993, he helped push through the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, which established background checks for firearms purchases. In 1994, Biden secured the passage of the assault weapons ban and the high capacity magazine ban, for 10 years.

As president, Biden will:

Ban the manufacture and sale of assault weapons and high capacity magazines. Owners would be forced to sell their weapons and high capacity magazines to the government or register them, under the National Firearms Act.

Prioritize the repealing of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, which protects firearm manufacturers against lawsuits, for the (mis)use of firearms, in the commission of crimes. This would allow firearms manufacturers to be sued out of existence.

Restrict the number of firearms individuals may purchase to one per month, to reduce the stockpiling of weapons.

Require background checks on all gun purchases.

Reinstate the Obama-Biden policy removing guns from people unable to handle their affairs for mental reasons, which Trump reversed.

Close the hate crime loophole, with legislation prohibiting anyone convicted of a misdemeanor hate crime or receiving an enhanced sentence for a misdemeanor because of hate or bias in its commission from owning a firearm.

Close the Charleston loophole, which allows buyers to complete a firearms purchase if a background check is not complete within 3 business days. This would allow gun purchases to be delayed indefinitely.

Require all guns sold, eventually, be smart guns, even though such technology does not currently exist, requiring a finger print reading to fire your gun. Good luck with the button batteries powering the device.

Give state and local governments grants to require individuals to obtain a license before purchasing a firearm. A scheme for gun registration.

Require all gunowners to safely store weapons in their homes and hold all homeowners criminally and civilly liable.

There is way too much on Biden’s website to summarize in 400 words, but if Biden is elected and has his way, our Second Amendment is doomed.

Anyone can view this online for themselves.
