If there’s one topic that has received little attention in this year’s presidential election it’s “gun control.” Or, when it comes to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, perhaps it should be called gun elimination. Because it’s now clearer than ever that, if elected, a Biden/Harris administration would be the most anti-2nd Amendment, anti-lawful gun owner administration in modern history.
“Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s proposed gun control policy includes a provision that could require every AR-15 rifle be registered under the National Firearms Act of 1934. Unless there were some form of carve-out, this could mandate that American gun owners pay a $200 federal tax per AR-15 that they own. The National Rifle Association’s Andrew Arulanandam told Breitbart News that the current “low end” estimate of privately-owned AR-15s in the United States is 18 million. A tax of $200 on 18 million AR-15s means that gun owners could potentially be required to a pay a collective $3.6 billion in taxes, if this policy were enacted into legislation,” according to excellent reporting by Breitbart News.
“In addition to the $200 tax, owners of guns that are deemed “assault weapons,” under Biden’s view of the NFA, could also be required to register these weapons with federal authorities, submit their finger prints and photograph, and potentially submit to an FBI background check.” [emphasis added]
Don’t believe it? The following paragraph comes directly from Biden’s website.
Regulate possession of existing assault weapons under the National Firearms Act. Currently, the National Firearms Act requires individuals possessing machine-guns, silencers, and short-barreled rifles to undergo a background check and register those weapons with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Due to these requirements, such weapons are rarely used in crimes. As president, Biden will pursue legislation to regulate possession of existing assault weapons under the National Firearms Act. [emphasis added]
Further, Biden has made it clear that he intends to outlaw whatever he decides to call an “assault weapon.”
As Breitbart News notes, “In a recent interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Cooper asked Biden, ‘So, to gun owners out there who say, well, a Biden administration means they’re going to come for guns?’ Biden responded, ‘Bingo. You’re right, if you have an ‘assault weapon.’ The fact of the matter is they should be illegal, period.'” [emphasis added]
