Biden Officially Signs Executive Orders on Gun Control


This afternoon, Biden reiterated the same old talking points about gun violence and how it is an epidemic and an embarrassment. It's not an epidemic, but this is the Democratic Party, peddling false narratives that are further aided by their allies in the media is their bread and butter. Another item not included in the preview last night was banning certain kits related to the building of firearms. The Washington Post reporting this so it'll probably get another clarification later in the day:

President Biden announced the executive actions, including one targeting kits used to assemble firearms from pieces, after deadly back-to-back mass shootings last month in Atlanta and Boulder, Colo. The unilateral moves come as legislation to tighten gun controls remains stalled in Congress.
[...]
In the White House Rose Garden, the president is expected to announce new rules on firearms that are assembled at home, which lack serial numbers and are harder to track, among other moves designed to make it harder for unqualified people to obtain dangerous weapons.
[...]
...the issue of gun violence moved vividly the forefront after the two mass shootings, one in the Atlanta area in which eight people were killed and another in Colorado, where 10 were killed.
Biden’s aides stressed that beyond mass shootings, the president wants to focus on curbing the more frequent and deadlier epidemic of day-to-day gun violence that disproportionately affects Blacks and Latinos.
Yeah, funny how that Boulder shooting just vanished from newsrooms once it was reported that the suspect is a Syrian refugee and not a white dude, but that's another story. Look, it seems as if Biden also wants to target gang violence, which is fine. We're talking about illegal firearms here. We can all get on board with that, but once again Democrats will certainly try to pass measures that only curb the rights of law-abiding Americans.

Biden’s Pick For ATF Director Has A Questionable Past That Deserves A Second Look


“During this time, negotiators arranged for the release of 35 Branch Davidians, including 21 children. But on April 19, 1993, in an attempt to lure Koresh and his followers out, agents took decisive action that critics later called extreme or unwarranted: They rammed the building with tanks and launched a tear-gas assault,” The History Channel said in an overview of the events. “The structure caught fire (the cause of the fire is still debated), and 76 Branch Davidians—which included 28 children—died in the flames.”

There is a fairly common consensus amongst Americans that what took place in Waco, Texas was wrong. Innocent people – including children – died because the government was focused more on the cult’s illegal firearms than they were preserving human life.

But Chipman defended the ATF and what took place. Last year, he conducted a Reddit Ask Me Anything (AMA) on “gun violence,” where users can ask questions pertaining to the topic. What’s amazing is he denied ATF accountability for any of the wrongdoing that took place in Waco.

“At Waco, cult members used 2 .50 caliber Barretts to shoot down two Texas Air National Guard helicopters,” Chipman falsely claimed in a pinned comment on Reddit. “Point, it is true we are fortunate they are not used in crime more often. The victims of drug lords in Mexico are not so lucky. America plays a role in fueling the violence south of the border.”

Fact-Checking Biden’s Latest Gun Control Press Conference


Biden parrots the “gun show loophole” lie

Biden falsely claims that “his” assault weapon and high-capacity magazine ban reduced mass shootings

Biden argues that stabilizing braces make weapons more lethal

Biden lies, saying that gun violence is an epidemic


While gun violence certainly exists, the truth is that “as gun ownership has increased, the rate of firearm homicides has steadily declined since a brief spike in the early 1990s.”

Joe Biden makes numerous false claims about the U.S. Constitution

“But no amendment, no amendment to the Constitution is absolute.” Biden said. “You can’t yell ‘fire’ in a crowded movie theater and call it freedom of speech.”

This claim is routinely parroted by members of the Left while attempting to pick holes in the First and Second Amendments. Unfortunately for them, it’s a false claim.

“From the very beginning, you couldn’t own any weapon you wanted to own. From the very beginning of the Second Amendment existed, certain people weren’t allowed to have weapons. So the idea is just bizarre to suggest that some of the things we’re recommending are contrary to the Constitution,” Biden also said.

The Second Amendment reads, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” While it is true that not all people have been permitted to “have weapons,” as Biden claimed, the reasoning behind such prevention was often changed by further amendments, such as the 13th Amendment which abolished slavery.

Biden's Many False Claims on Gun Violence

Despite Democrats having control of both houses of Congress, Biden doesn’t have the votes to change the legal definition of a firearm. So he wants to change the definition with an executive order. That way, he hopes to be able to better target so-called “ghost guns" made out of parts that require machine tools to finish.

The problem is the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives’s definition, whereby something is not a firearm when “the fire-control cavity area is [a] completely solid and un-machined” block of metal. Existing law defines a firearm as a weapon that can fire a bullet or that can be “readily converted” to do so. The problem is that a solid block of metal isn’t "readily" convertible to a gun. If the Biden administration successfully defines solid lumps of metal as firearms, they will have to include a long list of items that aren’t firearms.

Will Biden Declare a 'Public Health Crisis' to Grab Your Guns?


Conservatives have been warning about the slippery slope that could result from these declarations of public health emergencies. Government tyrants have been getting away with using powers not granted to them by the legislature to impose whatever mandates their authoritarian hearts desire—sometimes, as in the case of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s nursing home order, with deadly consequences. The courts, unfortunately, have been slow to step in and inconsistent in their rulings, allowing the unconstitutional government orders to continue apace.

I fear it’s only a matter of time before someone gets the idea to regulate gun ownership by declaring a public health emergency. Is that what Biden’s up to with the language above? Time will tell, but don’t be surprised if whoever is running the show at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue tries to make an end-run around Congress to push through emergency orders to confiscate guns from those deemed a “health risk,” beginning with anyone who attended the Trump rally on Jan. 6. My firearms were, unfortunately, lost in a tragic boating accident, so I don’t have to worry about it, but you definitely should.




when they come for your guns. give them the ammo 1st.

Multiple Governors Signal They Won’t Put Up With Biden’s Second Amendment Attack: ‘Out Of Control’


Multiple governors signaled that they will be taking action against Democrat President Joe Biden after Biden officially unveiled his initial plan to attack Second Amendment rights.

Biden announced a series of actions, which he articulated during a press conference where he made multiple false claims, targeting two types of gun parts: pistol braces and chunks of plastic and metal that are unfinished firearms. The Biden administration also will be publishing “model red flag legislation” for states to consider. This comes just a couple of weeks after the Biden administration urged the Supreme Court to uphold a warrantless gun confiscation case.

Tucker Carlson Warns: Biden’s Crackdown On Second Amendment Isn’t About Guns, It’s About Control


TUCKER CARLSON, FOX NEWS HOST: Good evening, and welcome to Tucker Carlson Tonight. We often accuse politicians of dishonesty on this show, but there are grades of it, let’s boil it down. Nothing the Democratic Party advocates for is more dishonest than gun control. Everything about that one specific issue is false. Most policy debates actually aren’t like that. And we try to be honest about it on the show. No matter how passionate you are about a position that you have, you can still sort of see what the other side is talking about. You might, for example, deeply dislike taxes, but you can still acknowledge it is fair to charge people for the services they receive from the government. So the other side isn’t crazy. They just have arrived at a different number than you did. Or you can hate abortion, and we do, and you can still understand, if again if you’re being totally honest about it, why is scared pregnant teenager might be tempted to have one. But gun control is not like that. Gun control is entirely fraudulent. The Democratic Party claims that guns cause violence. That’s the core claim, and it is a lie. It is provably untrue. The places in this country that have the most guns, and the loosest controls on those guns also have the least gun violence, the fewest killings. That’s the bottom line. You can look it up, it’s publicly available to anyone. Anyone who tries to restrict your legally own firearms is not trying to make America safer. The point is to disarm you, to strip you of your autonomy, your power, your right of self defense.

Gun control is not about guns. Gun Control is about who controls America. Is it the population as in a democracy? Or does all control go to a small group of authoritarians as in oligarchy? Those are the stakes in the gun control debate. It’s not about guns, it’s about who runs the country. So with that in mind, Joe Biden’s speech calling for more gun control should make you uncomfortable. Almost nothing Biden said was true. We could go down the list, but here are a few highlights to give you the flavor. Biden claimed that firearms purchased at gun shows are exempt from background checks. That’s a lie as anyone who’s ever been to a gun show can tell you. Joe Biden claimed that gun manufacturers have total immunity against lawsuits. That’s also a lie. Gun manufacturers get sued all the time, ask them, etc. So it was a speech aimed to mislead rather than to inform. Before he announced how he plans to restrict your Second Amendment rights, Joe Biden wanted to remind you those rights are not real in the first place. They are not as he put it, absolute.

Biden’s ATF Pick Mocked Americans As Zombie Preppers For Buying Guns During Government Lockdowns




Chipman’s recommendation as a longtime government bureaucrat who served 25 years at ATF was for new gun owners to “secure that gun locked and unloaded and hide it behind the cans of tuna and beef jerky that you’ve stored in the cabinet, and only bring that out if the zombies start to appear.”

The administration’s latest nominee to the bureau tasked with enforcing the nation’s gun laws comes with a long resume of aggressive activism for stricter restrictions on Americans’ Second Amendment rights. After two and a half decades in the ATF, Chipman worked as an adviser to the anti-gun group launched by former Arizona Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords after she was shot in a 2011 Tucson shooting.

After the news broke of Chipman’s impending nomination on Wednesday, Chipman took cues from past nominees in the Biden administration and locked his Twitter account to prevent anyone from searching his prior posts.

No one wants to state the facts.
There are two major types who cause problems with shooting human beings.

Mentally ill white people and black thugs.

You can pass a thousand more gun bills and those 2 problems still exist.
I can add that even if there was a way to stop them from getting guns they would find some other way to kill.

Members Of Biden’s ‘Environmental Justice’ Advisory Council Have History Of Radicalism, Claiming Fossil Fuels Are Racist


Twenty-six people were named to the council, but at least four of them have made radical statements connecting fossil fuels to racism.


Susana Almanza, for example, is the director of People Organized in Defense of Earth and Her Resources (PODER), an environmental justice organization based in Austin, Texas. Hilltop Views, the student news website of St. Edward’s University, profiled Almanza, noting that she has a Che Guevara poster in her office and said that her organization is “fighting big monsters; they’re not little ones,” referring to oil companies.

Beverly Wright, executive director of the Deep South Center for Environmental Justice, addressed a recent Department of Interior public forum on the federal oil and gas program and implored the Department to review the program “with an analysis of how it perpetuates environmental racism and the racial inequity of climate vulnerability.” She also insisted that “racial discrimination that is central to oil and gas operations.”

So here's a proposal. All those billionaires with more money than they can possibly spend use some to start up mental facilities to house & care for these people or remove them from society. Put their money to good use for a change instead of lobbyists & feel good programs. Keep these people from having any contact from weapons. Bezos has the money. Call them Amazon Mental Hospitals.

.... or remove them from society.
HOW RELEASE OF MENTAL PATIENTS BEGAN


THE policy that led to the release of most of the nation's mentally ill patients from the hospital to the community is now widely regarded as a major failure. Sweeping critiques of the policy, notably the recent report of the American Psychiatric Association, have spread the blame everywhere, faulting politicians, civil libertarian lawyers and psychiatrists.

But who, specifically, played some of the more important roles in the formation of this ill-fated policy? What motivated these influential people and what lessons are to be learned?

A detailed picture has emerged from a series of interviews and a review of public records, research reports and institutional recommendations. The picture is one of cost-conscious policy makers, who were quick to buy optimistic projections that were, in some instances, buttressed by misinformation and by a willingness to suspend skepticism.
