The Biden Administration is looking to find a new way to curtail the Constitutionally guaranteed rights of Americans through executive action.
From The Daily Wire:
Democrat President Joe Biden is reportedly set to announce a new crackdown on gun rights this week with one of the most extreme far-left anti-gun activists set to attend the event.
"The Biden administration will come out with its long-awaited ghost gun rule — aimed at reining in privately made firearms without serial numbers that are increasingly cropping up at crime scenes — as soon as Monday," the Associated Press reported. "The White House has also been weighing naming Steve Dettelbach, a former U.S. attorney from Ohio, to run the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, or ATF."
This law would essentially ban people from making homemade guns. This is a clear 2nd Amendment violation and it's coming from the executive branch.
The President is planning to ban one method of owning firearms simply by fiat.
Far-left activist David Hogg tweeted on Saturday that he would be in attendance for the event, writing, "I will be at the White House on Monday for an announcement from the president of the United States on what actions are being taken to reduce gun violence."
He added, "Many in the movement including myself have been working on this for months. Looking to finally seeing the results..."
The Biden administration released its proposed rule last May which "would modernize the definition of ‘frame or receiver' and help close a regulatory loophole associated with the un-serialized privately made firearms that" the administration claimed "are increasingly being recovered at crime scenes across the country."
"We are committed to taking commonsense steps to address the epidemic of gun violence that takes the lives of too many people in our communities," said Attorney General Merrick B. Garland. "Criminals and others barred from owning a gun should not be able to exploit a loophole to evade background checks and to escape detection by law enforcement. This proposed rule would help keep guns out of the wrong hands and make it easier for law enforcement to trace guns used to commit violent crimes, while protecting the rights of law-abiding Americans. Although this rulemaking will solve only one aspect of the problem, we have an obligation to do our part to keep our families and our neighborhoods safe from gun violence."
The idea that Merrick Garland would be on the Supreme Court if not for Mitch McConnell is a chilling thought.
But he's doing enough damage as AG if he plans to enforce such a ridiculous overreach.
Thomas Massie, a representative from Kentucky, had some not-so-subtle words to say in response to this plan from the Biden Administration.
I'm glad there are some no-nonsense politicians in Washington who can see blatant anti-constitutionalism and stand up against it.
The framers of the 2nd Amendment would have had no issue with people building their own guns. It's obviously an infringement on the right to bear arms.
And then he comes to Congress. Congress passes laws.
If Congress wanted to ban ghost guns, it could pass a law (except the 2A says "Congress shall make no law," which really sums up the left's conundrum).The courts would likely strike it down, but that's in Congress' realm of power.
But the idea that the president can create law out of thin air and enforce it through an administrative agency is so far removed from the founding that it boggles the mind that we're now allowing this stuff.
A gun ban-and-grab is certainly not going to make Biden's other failures disappear. It's only going to make things worse for the Brandon administration.
