Biden’s Gun Control Agenda Won’t Collect the Billions He Thinks Because Americans Will Not Comply

we will not comply

Dan Z. for TTAG

As we’ve written here countless times in the run-up to the election, Slow Joe’s Everytown/Giffords-produced gun control platform was the most radical anti-gun rights agenda in the history of American politics. One of its primary features was a combination of a ban on the manufacture and sale of new civilian “assault weapons,” a buyback of currently owned guns, and NFA regulation and taxation of scary black rifles and “high capacity” magazines for those who elect to keep their property.

As the Washington Free Beacon’s Stephen Gutowski wrote earlier this week, that kind of crushing regulatory burden would cost gun owners about $34 billion…if Americans decided to comply with it.

But that wouldn’t happen. The federal government would get neither the guns nor the money nor the personal information of every assault-weapon owner. It would only get to choose between ignoring widespread resistance and going out hunting for civilians who’d kept unregistered guns, hoping not to end up with another Waco or Ruby Ridge.

Think I’m being melodramatic? Take a quick tour through some recent gun-control efforts that required enforcing the law against everyday civilians, and not just businesses that traffic in firearms.

In 2013, Connecticut tried to force the registration of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. The government estimated there were almost 400,000 of the former and 2 million of the latter in the state, but the following year, the number of registrations totaled only about 50,000 and 40,000 respectively.

Laws requiring background checks on private sales of used guns have fared little better. One study looked at laws in Washington State, Colorado, and Delaware, and found that in the first two of those states, the background-check law didn’t even increase background checks.

In Washington, there was a well-documented public “I will not comply” rally at the state capital, at which firearms were openly transferred between private parties without background checks. There were also gun shows where non-compliance was encouraged and public calls from profirearm organisations to not comply with the state’s new CBC [comprehensive-background-check] policy. . . .

Many county law enforcement officials in Colorado reportedly stated they would not enforce its CBC law, and some retailers were declining to process background checks for private party transfers. Washington law enforcement agencies announced there would be no arrests for selling guns at the non-compliance rally and gun show. Preliminary data from a study of two Eastern states suggest that willingness to prosecute violations of such laws can vary substantially.

Meanwhile, in my own state of Virginia, the threat of a Democrat-controlled state government recently prompted many counties and localities to declare themselves “Second Amendment sanctuaries” where local authorities would not take part in enforcing any unconstitutional gun laws.

    Amerikans are nothing if not compliant slaves of the ruling class and branch Covidians. There would be massive compliance. Secret non-compliance is worthless and is almost as bad as compliance.

        Regardless of any new laws or regulations I am keeping my pistol brace, my 80%, all of my mags, and all of my MSRs. If I can get a solvent trap before the inauguration I will, and I will keep it. I will not drill it unless/until I am able to file a form 1

        Tomorrow we are going down to Philly in violation of Mayor Kenney’s Stalinist regulations.

        I wear a mask when around groups of people not from my household by my choice, not because I was told to. I work in healthcare and have used masks correctly for more than 25 years. I am around people all of the time who are covid positive, and I am around people all the time who are compromised. Me wearing a mask protects everyone I encounter, in or out of work. It is a small thing to do that does a lot of good.

        Plus I paid $5 each for all of these Star Trek, Star Wars, and Fish themed masks, and the Snoopy WWI flying Ace mask, and dammit I am going to wear them for the next 20 years! 😉

          Similar, Crimson. I’m keeping everything (braces, 80%, mags, et al) and will register nothing. I enjoy wearing a mask to the stores only because I prefer to shop in privacy (foiling facial rec cameras), not because of any fear of COVID.

        Wearing a mask and being a sheeple are two different issues. I wear a mask to decrease spread of the Chinese virus. I voted for Trump and I think the election was stolen. I have lots of guns and I have no intention of ever registering any of my guns, magazines, etc.. I am a bit of a red neck, with a small farm and herd of cattle. But I’m also trained in medicine and know how to read scientific articles. Closing down society does little, but mask wearing, hand washing, and social distancing does make a difference. I always wear either my Trump MAG hat or a camouflage hat when I go into a store with my mask on just to show you can be conservative, pro-Trump, freedom loving, and still take precautions to minimize the spread of this “gift” from China. (interesting note: China’s own scientist published a study in Feb which showed the virus most likely escaped from a research lab. First the paper disappeared and then the scientist who wrote it disappeared.)

        I wish people would stop equating gun control with slowing the spread of COVID-19. They have nothing to do with each other.

        Gun control is an example of government’s lack of respect for the American people. It’s the same as automatic braking and lane keeping in your car because, supposedly, you are such a poor driver that you are safer with these systems despite their well known flaws that will run you into a stopped truck or into a guard rail.

        COVID-19 isn’t a sinister plot. It’s a serious, highly contagious disease that, because it’s new, the medical establishment is only beginning to learn how to handle. Public health measures (distancing and masks) to slow the spread aren’t much different from those of 150 years ago. Hospital treatment amounts to treating the symptoms and hoping that the patient’s immune system kills the virus before the symptoms kill the patient. Fortunately, there is good news. Highly effective vaccines will be available within weeks and there are new drugs that give patients a better chance for recovery.

        We all know the anti-gunners have their heads up their asses. It disappoints me how many gun people have their heads equally far up their asses about COVID-19.

        1. avatar anonymous4goodreason says:

          It isn’t about wearing the masks or equating WuFlu to gun control. It’s about the unconstitutional mandate for masks. For someone who seems reasonably intelligent it surprises me that you can’t fathom that.

          The government’s responsibility during a pandemic is to provide us with the information we need to make an educated decision about the steps to take to protect ourselves and others. It is OK for the government to make recommendations but it is not OK to mandate anything. Not masks, not lockdowns, not travel restrictions within our borders, or anything else they have done! That isn’t the way this country was meant to operate.

          In this case the government should be providing vitamin D3, zinc, & masks and recommending that we take the supplements and wear the masks. Simple enough to do and a lot better economically than shutting down and have to shell out $3-5 Trillion for recovery. Anyone concerned about going somewhere where they might have to mix with the unwashed and unmasked should just stay home.

          I wore a mask everywhere until the governor mandated it. Now I’d rather be arrested or get the WuFlu than comply with an unconstitutional directive and abuse of authority by a would-be dictator.

        2. Kendahl… So you believe this virus is soooo dangerous that it’s highly contagious and deadly??? Well, I beg to differ dimwit. They got you snowed pretty good and that fake news and fake medical articles you’re reading, have you shaking and wimpering in your ballerina slippers. I’m guessing you think that OVER 35,000 FRONT LINE (HANDS-ON) doctors that have treated OVER 100’s of thousands of cases and have not one damn death from this so-called “deadly” disease is just a conspiracy or flat-out lie??? I personally have been told by 2 of my own docs this is already curable as well as my relative’s docs saying the same thing. So, yes, this is a conspiracy, a flat-out lie and the vaccine is just another money making hoax. Your muzzle is just another symbol telling them you are a sheeple and will comply, bow down, smooch arse and whatever else they tell you. You are exactly what is wrong with this country. You get false, fake info and you’re so damn gullible you eat up all this puke without doing any research or obtaining any knowledge and then come out here and vomit these lies.
          As for the gun control crap they keep trying to shove down our throats, I WILL stand by my bros in complete defiance and rebellion!!!

        It takes time. And the orders have to start getting egregious and costing money or freedom (actually liberty by being put in jail).

        The Revolution did not start overnight it took years and it took place after continued efforts to obey the King/Parliament but they refused to compromised and kept getting worse.

        Then when it was realized there was no hope and that the continued actions would soon become unbearable or already were. Then and only then did a SMALL contingent of people decide to declare themselves free to see what would happen.

          Nope. The ATF would have the burden of proof that you, in fact, still have the forbidden items before they can freeze your assets. You do not, and should not, run your pie hole with any branch of law enforcement. There is a very informative, and humorous, law school lecture by a former cop who is a criminal defense attorney who explains exactly who you just do not talk to the cops.

          Criminalizing the population is what this is about. I don’t think the leftists actually believe people will comply (at least not the leaders, the dupes might), and I doubt most of them are really interested in pressing door-to-door confiscation.

          Bingo!!!

          I would also add that Democrats want those laws on the books to fire-up their base and enable them to claim the moral (virtue) high ground.

          Remember, Democrats and their supporters do not care about effectiveness by-and-large. Rather, their two overriding motivations are assuaging their feelings and promoting group/tribal cohesion. To that end, passing laws requiring taxation, background checks, registration, buy-backs, surrender, and even confiscation are all good — regardless of compliance rates.

          you could have believed it. people DON’T want gun control, it is a losing proposition, people were seeing the necessity of self-defense and how they can’t rely on the cops to save their lives. vote fraud aside, if we are to believe the votes, the Democrats lost seats and the Republicans gained seats, because people voted for law and order instead of anarchy and destruction. gun rights could only have been a big part of that.

          the only thing right now that might make you say “people want gun control” is because one Big Schmuck supposedly got elected President and he has an agenda against our 2nd Amendment rights that he wants to shove down our throats, which you now assume is the will of the people.

          and he has a horde of cowardly democrats to back him up that know this is not what people want, but now they can push it because that’s what THEY want. it’s always been like that with the democrats.

          no, people don’t want gun control. our arms are being twisted by the puppeteers in the communist/democrat party… who stole the election, by the way.

          gus,

          … the only thing right now that might make you say “people want gun control” …

          I know where you are coming from and I respectfully disagree. Many (dare I say most?) firearm owners — including people who fancy themselves as advocates for our right to keep and bear arms — support one or more of the following:

          1) background checks

          2) criminal empowerment “gun-free” zones

          3) mandatory licensing for legal open and/or concealed carry

          4) 10 month delay and tax stamp before owning “short-barreled” firearms

          5) 10 month delay and tax stamp before owning suppressors

          6) 10 month delay and tax stamp before owning full-auto firearms

          7) no option whatsoever for civilian ownership of full-auto firearms

          8) no guns for convicted criminals after release and completing probation

          9) no guns for “mentally unstable” people

          All of those items are elements of “gun control”. If a person supports even one of those items, that person supports “gun control”. In my own personal experience with myriad people of all types, shapes, colors, varieties, and political persuasions, most of them support one or more items on that list.

    Even if we emptied all the prisons in the United States to make room for those who would refuse to comply with this tax and registration scheme, there STILL wouldn’t be enough room for all of us. Were Biden to increase the prison capacity accordingly, it would cost the U.S. taxpayers far more than any tax revenue he might hope to collect, not to mention imprison 2-3 times our current capacity.

    So in sort, this isn’t going anywhere.

    There’s no incentive to comply.
    Locking people up is easy when it’s a few here and there. With this nonsense were looking at a scale on par with downloading copyrighted material. There will no doubt be a handful of high profile prosecutions or attempts to prosecute in an effort to encourage compliance but it won’t work because it can’t work. The system can’t be bogged down with that many offenders so much like the chase of the downloader any enforcement will be largely dropped not out of some great affinity for liberty but simply because it isn’t practical or feasible. Charging some kid three million dollars for downloading a Metallica album is as worthless as it is to fine some guy with 20 mags half a million dollars. Sure some die hard zealot prosecutor in a blue state will go for it but it’ll just make everyone double down on not complying and reinforce what utter retardation these proposals are.

    There is no incentive to comply just as there is no incentive to enforce. Certainly not on the scale that would be required. Therefore it cannot work.

      The few who they do prosecute would be those who are caught breaking other firearms laws or extreme cases like having a thousand ARs stashed in your basement.

    2. avatar uncommon_sense says:

      Shire-man,

      I agree with the basic operating principle of your comment.

      Having said that, you have not considered a much easier and much more insidious way for fedzilla to enforce registration requirements, buy-backs, bans, etc. That simple way: fedzilla codifies “compelled” cancel-culture to all the private and public entities who serve us.

      Allow me to explain. Fedzilla learns that John Q. Public failed to register, sell-back, surrender, etc. his “contraband” firearms in violation of state and/or federal law. No worries: fedzilla sends a court order to John Q. Public’s bank, 401k administrator, energy utilities, telecommunication providers, and credit card companies telling them to immediately seize any assets in their possession and to immediately stop serving John Q. Public. And for grins and giggles, fedzilla also contacts John Q. Public’s employer and orders his employer to immediately terminate John and surrender any remaining payroll that John earned to fedzilla. And just to be downright nasty, fedzilla also notifies local government that John Q. Public also forfeited his home, buildings, and land along with any assets in/on those buildings and land.

      That nightmare scenario is so easy to implement that it is silly. There isn’t a bank, 401k administator, energy utility, telecommunications provider, credit card company, or employer in the United States that will risk losing their business for refusing to enforce such an order. As for the subject of those compelled “cancel-culture” orders: good luck trying to function in modern society without any of those entities, without your retirement plan/income, without a job, and without your home, buildings, and land.

      1. avatar Debbie W. says:

        That’s right fedzilla trashes the Constitution, creates mass unemployment, homelessness and strips away the pursuit of happiness and fedzilla assumes things are going to remain rosy for them?

Obviously fedzilla has no clue about how destructive ordinary Americans can become when the choice for America is between freedom and tyranny..

        Some nervous people think this will be a race war. Wrong. The filth behind the curtains are mostly lily white democRats who have for years filled the heads of Gullible Blacks with slander and libel. Whenever the day comes that Black Americans figure out belonging to the democRat Party makes as much sense as a Jew belonging to the nazi party it’s the end for lily white democRats who assume they have a Black Army waiting to defend them.

Cory Booker has introduced legislation to do just that; force farmers to sell their land so it can be redistribute to “people of color.”

        Land redistribution has worked really well. Look at Mugabe’s Zimbabwe. Handing over farmland to people who have not farmed in 4 or 5 generations turned Zimbabwe from a country that was food sufficient and exporter into a country that had food shortages and needed International food aid.

        In Miner’s hard-on, the former Soviet Union, the farmer’s private lots which were less than 5% of arable land provided half the food for the country. The collective farms were very inefficient and there were losses through the whole system in production, transport, storage, and processing that resulted in more than a third of the food spoiling.

        This is in fact the proposal floated by the Davos group, envisioning a world where there is no private property and you “rent” whatever you need. The missing logical link is that if you are “renting,” then someone is owning. Government ownership of everything? Why do I not see that as a practical solution to the problem? Another logical lapse is that people who own are more likely to take care of those things as compared to people who merely rent. And pretty soon, everything will fall apart. Or maybe that is the plan, as it keeps people employed building replacements. Who knows. It is a billionaire’s wet dream that will fail as have all social communist systems to date as such systems lack the necessary ingredient of incentive.

Manchin did not support Reid on the nuclear option so I am inclined to think he would keep his promise on the filibuster and packing the Court but I would have a plan in place if he doesn’t.

    1. avatar Mark N. says:

      Registration of “assault weapons” in California failed for a number of reasons. First, many owners of what were once legal rifles but were newly defined as assault weapons (because they were equipped with the outlawed bullet button) were and are blissfully unaware of the registration requirement (or the opportunity to convert the gun to one of two different forms of “non-AWs.” (I.e. unknowing noncompliance.) Second, the computer system built specifically for the task failed repeatedly, overburdened by the requirement of submitting multiple photographs of the rifle as then configured (suggesting that the DOJ was blissfully unaware that people change their guns with new accessories all the time). Third was intentional noncompliance, and fourth was the number of 80% firearms that do not appear in the state database that were not reported. Add to that the usual incompetence of the people processing all the registration applications, the system was over six months behind on the last day for registration and may late filers were blocked from completing their applications. I never heard the final figures, but I have to assume it was less than 20% of the AR/AK style rifles (and now illegal pistols) in the state, similar to the compliance rate in NY.

      1. avatar former water walker says:

        Well Mark when I bought my AR from the state next to mine I specifically asked my favorite pawnbroker if he told NICS it was an AR15. Nope he didn’t. “A rifle”. Could’ve been a 22 bolt gun! And no transfer either. So there’s that…I see massive non-compliance.

    If Georgia falls and the senate goes to the Dems, Biden will surely re-sign the UN Arms Trade Treaty that Trump un-signed in 2019 which Obama originally signed in 2013. The Democrat global socialists in the senate will ratify it by 51-49 no doubt. Then it won’t just be your scary black rifles and “high cap” magazines they want to register. It will be every “small arm” and every purchase of ammo. Oh, and you won’t just be registering those things with federal authorities, you’ll be registering them with the UN and the country of origin (Germany, Turkey, Ukraine, Russia) as it requires documentation of possession beginning with production and going all the way to the “end user.”

          ” Remember Pelosi talking about the 25th amendment? ”

          And talk is all it is. The hurdles to removing an unwilling President are pretty formidable, so unless Sleepy Joe is willing play along and remove himself, the Ho doesn’t get the job. And I’m betting that, even if everyone made a deal, Sleepy Joe is going to like being in Oval Office a bit to much and won’t walk away.

          That means the Dems would have to pull a palace coup. The Ho and a majority of the cabinet would have to declare Joe unfit.* If Sleepy Joe can’t convince anyone he’s fit and competent (not that anyone ever thought he is), then it goes to the Congress. Once in the Congress, it takes a 2/3 vote from both houses to remove the President. Even if every Dem votes yes, I can’t see the Reps getting on board to hand the Presidency to the Ho. So I’m not putting any stock into this idea of “25th him out.”
          —————–
          * The fly in this ointment is “such other body as Congress may by law provide” instead of a majority of the cabinet. To date, there is no “such other body”, but there has been some talk of creating one — from the Dems (Pelosi, mostly), of course.

    I was wondering about Connecticut and don’t forget New York. Both put forth registration requirements and last I heard they didn’t do so well.

    And that’s another thing; we don’t hear about the continuing failure of the States to enforce those registration requirements and for some reason they haven’t gone all banana republic on them for not registering. Hmm.

    So I would guess that along with it costing big money for registration they’re going to get only those who get ratted on or those who’s jobs would somehow be forfeit. Everyone else will just ignore it. The question will be with it going national, will they be able to ignore it? Or will their cheerleaders in Hollywood demand action? Especially since they won’t be the ones knocking on any doors.

    I suspect we’ll find out how many illegal data bases exist or how well the ATF can put together one by forcing the info from the FFl holders.

But I’m also trained in medicine and know how to read scientific articles. Closing down society does little, but mask wearing, hand washing, and social distancing does make a difference. I always wear either my Trump MAG hat or a camouflage hat when I go into a store with my mask on just to show you can be conservative, pro-Trump, freedom loving, and still take precautions to minimize the spread of this “gift” from China.

    This nation started on the slippery slope of taking the citizens’ GOD given rights under the Bill of Rights with the first regulation on guns. All of the Founders stated numerous times in speeches and print that the Bill of Rights is a documentation of GOD given rights no person shall amend or violate. That means no person whether individual, elected official or black robed tyrant murmuring from the bench. Our 2nd Amend has been under continual assault for over 100 years. Now with the Democrat/Chinese assault with the Wuhan Virus since they have gotten away with violating the 2nd Amendment so blatantly they figure they can just throw the Bill of Rights away. As long as a majority of citizens have cold drinks and beer in the fridge 500 channels of idiocy on the television and their bellies are full they figure all is right with the world. With the Biden/Harris Democrat Crime Organization tyranny on the horizon maybe people should look back on Cambodia under Pol Pot and see what is looming before them.

    The “independents” wouldn’t listen. The “never Trumpers” wouldn’t listen. Nobody would listen about how important it was to secure the election system and then get every single gun owner to vote for protecting their rights.

    Now you see what your cowardice has bought you. The bad orange man who hurt peoples’ feelings by saying mean things about them being stupid has (apparently) been defeated in a rigged election.

    Bad news: he was one of the only elected officials who actually cared about you and the success of the American system. You let the Democrats take down the NRA. You let them take down Trump. And you’re going to let them steal the Senate too.

    The Bee was correct: Democrats will demonstrate their respect for your contributions by reserving a special section of the Gulag for you. It won’t gain you any special treatment. It won’t protect your families, jobs, or accumulated assets from them. You’ve empowered people who want to do all of us harm.

    Nobody believes you when you say now that you intend to do something about it. The time for that is past. You don’t have the organization, you don’t have the leadership, you don’t have the legal legitimacy.

    Ben Franklin may or may not have said “We must all hang together or we will all hang separately.” The proper phrasing is “be hanged” but that is beside the point. If the Dems complete this power-grab they will be able to pick off people separately for two to four years. They have the BATF records. They have databases which they aren’t supposed to have but have anyway. They know who you are and where you are.

    So: what are you going to do? Be honest. Right now it looks like you’re going to do absolutely nothing. The elected officials you unwisely trusted have betrayed you. Just like warlords sold their own people into slavery to enrich themselves throughout history, so too has your government decided it has its own agenda which has nothing to do with your own well-being. You are no longer free. You are an asset to be taxed and drafted, incarcerated, worked and eventually killed as newer, fresher and more well-indoctrinated subjects arise.

    And you couldn’t even be bothered to vote. Or you voted against your own self-interest.

        Now the single best hope, albeit a long shot, is that this mystery case being filed by Sidney Powell has a bunch of smoking guns that a judge cannot ignore. It is possible that this might further reveal the swamp creatures and let them be rooted out and maybe even prosecuted. But it is a long shot that gets longer every day.

          It ain’t over.

          If we can convince the state legislatures a fraud did happen, they can order the electors to correct that by voting for Trump. Or, they can simply do nothing, by refusing to certify the vote.

          There are a number of options available, and I hope they choose to deny Biden the 270 votes he needs. That throws the election to Congress, and we hold a majority there by how they vote, 26 to 25 (I think it is).

    Look at Australia or England if you want to see what a disarmed society will become.

    KAMALA will follow the NY SAFE Act model: ban everything then over a long period of time confiscate guns thru attrition.

    Wife decides she doesnt like hubby anymore, call the cops and tell them about his AR in the closet. Guy goes to the range with his SKS, a range Fudd calls the tip line to turn him in. Dude driving out to his buddys farm to shoot his now illegal AK and gets pulled over for speeding, cop finds the AK and hauls him in for a felony.

    Its always been a long game for the communists. They never were going to try the Australian model here.
