Joe Biden announced Thursday he wants, during his presidency, administration rules against “ghost guns,” another to blend the definitions of pistol and rifles, a nationwide promotion of “red flag” laws that allowspeople to be banned from having guns on someone else’s feelings, and more.
And it’s no more or less than a “war” on Americans. . .
But the Second Amendment Foundation warned that he will not be allowed to bend the Constitution. Or break it.
“The devil will be in the details,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “Our legal team will review them and we are prepared to file suit if Biden and his administration steps over their legal authority.”
Gottlieb recalled that Biden has been a virulent promoter of gun control throughout his decades in Washington. He featured gun control as a major part of his presidential campaign last year, and published reports say he has met with representatives from gun prohibition advocacy groups since taking office.
Whoops: President Biden Repeatedly Refers To The ATF As The ‘AFT’
President Joe Biden repeatedly referred to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) as “the AFT” on Thursday.
“Today, I’m proud to nominate David Chipman to serve as the director of the AFT,” Biden said during an announcement on new gun control measures at the White House. “David knows the AFT well, he served there for 25 years and Vice President Harris and I believe he’s the right person at this moment for this important agency.”
Biden said Thursday he is enacting a series of executive actions in order to decrease gun violence across the country. The orders include a revamping of the policy over self-assembled firearms, or what are known as ghost guns.
Biden Falsely Claims That At A Gun Show ‘You Can Buy Whatever You Want — No Background Check’
President Joe Biden falsely suggested that Americans who purchase firearms at gun shows don’t need to first pass a background check prior to the transaction.
Biden said Biden said background checks aren’t required for firearm purchases at gun shows during his remarks at the White House Thursday. However, federal law already mandates firearm dealers to initiate a background check on prospective buyers at stores, gun shows or anywhere a transaction may occur, according to the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action.

“Most people don’t know that you walk into a store and buy a gun, you have a background check,” Biden said during the ceremony Thursday, in which he announced a slew of executive actions on gun violence. “But, you go to a gun show, you can buy whatever you want — no background check.”
The Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1993 established the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, which is maintained by the FBI and is able to determine a person’s criminal history. The legislation requires licensed firearm sellers to conduct a background check through the system before every sale.
