Here’s a Breakdown of These New Orders… and Why They Won’t Work
Which… is really suprising.
Here’s a video where Biden was secretly recording condemning using executive orders.
Oh, and he specifically says that the 2nd Amendment CANNOT be used against the 2nd Amendment.
WATCH (1 minute): Joe Biden Caught Slamming Executive Orders Against the 2nd Amendment
Gun Violence is NOT an Epidemic – Not Even Close
The new executive order begins by saying, “Today, the Biden-Harris Administration is announcing six initial actions to address the gun violence public health epidemic.”
Let’s do the math.
Experts agree – on average in America, there are 40,000 fatalities each year with firearms.
60% are suicides – which means we need to REMOVE these numbers from the 40,000 number – because suicides are NOT gun violence.
So, 60% of 40,000 is 24,000. So let’s remove the 24,000 suicides from the 40,000 number.
We get a whopping total of 16,000 ACTUAL instances of firearm accidents and murders.
A quick Google search just showed me that 16,000 is the exact number of people who died in 2019 due to the FLU.
Not even COVID.
The dang FLU.
Is the FLU an epidemic?
Another Google search shows that 16,000 is the comparative number of people in the USA who die every year from the overuse of ANTIBIOTICS.
Here are REAL epidemics in the USA:
OBESITY: 300,000 deaths a year.
CANCER: 606,000 deaths a year.
Gun violence doesn’t even come close.
Brainless Executive Action #1: The Justice Department, within 30 days, will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of “ghost guns.”
Here’s a copy and paste of the exact wording:
We are experiencing a growing problem: criminals are buying kits containing nearly all of the components and directions for finishing a firearm within as little as 30 minutes and using these firearms to commit crimes. When these firearms turn up at crime scenes, they often cannot be traced by law enforcement due to the lack of a serial number. The Justice Department will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of these firearms.
This is blatantly untrue.
Let’s break it down.
First, this is talking about “3D Printed” guns, or “ghost guns.”
Individuals in this country have been making their own guns for centuries.
The practice is deeply rooted in our constitutional history and tradition.
Legal scholars have recognized that the Second Amendment’s guarantee of the right to keep and bear arms would be meaningless in practice unless we have the ability to exercise that right—which includes making our own guns.
Is Joe Biden actually suggesting that criminals are buying up their own 3D printing machines and science-ing the crap out of guns?
Want to know where they get them?
A 2019 survey conducted by the Department of Justice (DOJ) found that some 43 percent of criminals had bought their firearms on the black market, 6 percent acquired them via theft, and 10 percent made a retail purchase – 0.8 percent purchased a weapon from a gun show.
In 11 percent of cases, the criminal had someone else buy a gun for them – known as a straw purchase – while an additional 15 percent got guns from a friend or relative. Some 12 percent of weapons found on a crime scene had been brought there by someone else.
The only people building these “ghost” guns are hobbyist law-abiding citizens who have a knack for engineering.
Not street thugs or mass murderers.
Brainless Executive Action #2: 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 exact text reads:
The alleged shooter in the Boulder tragedy last month appears to have used a pistol with an arm brace, which can make a firearm more stable and accurate while still being concealable.
Here’s an AR pistol with an arm brace:
Are we saying that this arm brace makes the gun more lethal?
First it was bump stocks they are after.
Now it’s arm braces.
JOE BIDEN: “We can’t ban AR15s… they we are just going to take them away piece by piece.”
(That’s not a real quote… I made it up.)
Again, this will do NOTHING to stop any mass shooting or violent crime.
Brainless Executive Action #3: The Justice Department, within 60 days, will publish model “red flag” legislation for states.
Here are the exact quotes:
Red flag laws allow family members or law enforcement to petition for a court order temporarily barring people in crisis from accessing firearms if they present a danger to themselves or others. The President urges Congress to pass an appropriate national “red flag” law, as well as legislation incentivizing states to pass “red flag” laws of their own. In the interim, the Justice Department’s published model legislation will make it easier for states that want to adopt red flag laws to do so.
When you actually read this…
…it’s less scary than you think.
There’s actually nothing happening.
The Justice Department will publish a “model” of red flag laws.
…it doesn’t say they are going to implement anything.
Nothing is actually changing on this one.
…So why the hell did they bother writing it?
Brainless Executive Action #4: The Administration is investing in evidence-based community violence interventions.
Here’s the exact text:
Community violence interventions are proven strategies for reducing gun violence in urban communities through tools other than incarceration. Because cities across the country are experiencing a historic spike in homicides, the Biden-Harris Administration is taking a number of steps to prioritize investment in community violence interventions.
- The American Jobs Plan proposes a $5 billion investment over eight years to support community violence intervention programs. A key part of community violence intervention strategies is to help connect individuals to job training and job opportunities.
- The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is organizing a webinar and toolkit to educate states on how they can use Medicaid to reimburse certain community violence intervention programs, like Hospital-Based Violence Interventions.
- Five federal agencies are making changes to 26 different programs to direct vital support to community violence intervention programs as quickly as possible. These changes mean we can start increasing investments in community violence interventions as we wait on Congress to appropriate additional funds. Read more about these agency actions here.
Look at these words…
“…strategies for reducing gun violence in urban communities.”
It’s as if they finally see it!
Chicago. New York. Baltimore.
These are the cities with the highest crime rates…
…and the strictest gun laws.
There’s no coincidence there.
Brainless Executive Action #5: The Justice Department will issue an annual report on firearms trafficking.
Here are the exact words:
In 2000, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) issued a report summarizing information regarding its investigations into firearms trafficking, which is one way firearms are diverted into the illegal market where they can easily end up in the hands of dangerous individuals. Since the report’s publication, states, local, and federal policymakers have relied on its data to better thwart the common channels of firearms trafficking. But there is good reason to believe that firearms trafficking channels have changed since 2000, for example due to the emergence of online sales and proliferation of “ghost guns.” The Justice Department will issue a new, comprehensive report on firearms trafficking and annual updates necessary to give policymakers the information they need to help address firearms trafficking today.
…this executive action is just a report.
No big deal.
Brainless Executive Action #6: The President will nominate David Chipman to serve as Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.
ATF is the key agency enforcing our gun laws, and it needs a confirmed director in order to do the job to the best of its ability. But ATF has not had a confirmed director since 2015. Chipman served at ATF for 25 years and now works to advance commonsense gun safety laws.
This is ALL BAD.
This guy is an absolute GUN GRABBING NUT.
He used to be an ATF agent, and used the botched WACO incident to push for more gun control.
He’ll be leaving the gun-control group Giffords to head up the ATF.
He once claimed in a post on the social media site Reddit that Branch Davidian members shot down two government helicopters using .50-caliber Barrett rifles.
This is the worst part of the entire order.
