Cook: Relax, Biden Won’t Be Able to Do Anything to Really Restrict Gun Ownership

“Anarchy will reign and I don’t expect any compliance amongst citizens,” said Brian Rafn, a recently retired gun industry analyst from Morgan Dempsey whose family owns shares in Sturm, Ruger. He estimated the “civilian gun arsenal” to be 585 million in guns in private ownership, which he referred to as “a Red State and rural/suburban reality.”

Gun violence is an important issue, but Biden has already declared the coronavirus pandemic to be public enemy number one, and his clear priority when he takes office in January 2021. America has suffered an epidemic of mass shootings in recent years, but they have subsided during the Covid-19 pandemic, which closed schools and prevented people from gathering in large groups, providing fewer opportunities for mass shooters.

If no gun control measures are passed during the Biden presidency, the gun industry could enjoy the best of both worlds: sales fueled by the hysteria of a gun control policy that might never happen.

“It’s hard to see that Biden is going to be able to do anything that would restrict the public’s ability to buy all the guns they want, of whatever sort,” said [Duke University Sociologist Philip] Cook. “If they were genuinely concerned about what was going to happen under a Biden administration, they don’t need to be.”

        If the left has been allowed to scream “not my President” while their political arm vandalizes, riots, and murders, and then their political arm gets to stage a 4 year long attempted coup and impeach a sitting President on charges a Grand Jury would have laughed out of the courtroom.. the right is allowed to say “Not my president”.

        Given the rampant fraud that has been so patently obvious to anyone not in the Biden camp (other countries are looking at us with a mixture of pity and contempt) I would be extremely cautious of being so smug. If the right decides the process is utterly illegitimate the US is headed into dangerous waters.

      The author of this article says he thinks Biden will not be able to get any gun control through the Congress.
      He is completely wrong.
      It is still up in to state of Georgia to determine if it is a slim Democrat or Republican majority of the US Senate.
      If it is evenly split, then Kamala Harris gets to make the deciding vote and with a democrat majority in the House, they can put through any legislation they want.

      1. avatar Cadeyrn says:

        This is the correct and very, very scary part that people should really be thinking about.

        The Dems are all-in on this one. They’ve gone full-bore cheater to assure their win so they can do anything – everything – they want to. They’re moving people to Georgia now to try to stack the Senate run-offs in their favor. They will do literally anything to seize control of America and break it for their foreign paymasters.

        If Trump cannot produce the evidence to show the cheating or worse still if he can’t get a fair hearing on it then there is one peaceful move remaining to prevent a complete leftist turnover: the Constitutional Convention. This is permitted under Article V of the Constitution: “… on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof…”

        Dems effectively hold 13 states and they will absolutely oppose any convention or proposal. Republicans have control in 32. They need 33 to call a convention but 38 to pass meaningful amendments or changes. If you’re doing the math you’ll see there are five states which could make the difference in calling the convention but it would take six to change anything.

          I get your sentiment, but the Constitution never really stopped anyone from trying to enact unconstitutional laws. See, e.g., Reginald Jones-Sawyer, who famously stated:

      “Do NOT trust the vote totals coming out of Cobb County, GA until there is an audit to determine valid v. invalid votes.”

        1. avatar Dude says:

          It’s a long shot to present enough evidence to overturn three states in a matter of weeks, but anything’s possible. Hand recounts might discover uncounted or switched ballots, but it won’t discover fraudulent ballots. Fraudulent ballots are a major concern.

          https://twitter.com/IvanPentchoukov/status/1329270741175513089

          If they switched or added some votes, haven’t they had enough time to pump in fraudulent ballots to make up the difference? How would you catch that without a careful audit of each ballot? Even then, they could use an authentic ballot of a registered voter that never really voted.

        2. avatar Miner49er says:

          Oh yes, Rudy G. and Sidney Powell are on the case!

          With Rudy recently embarrassed himself in court, that was the first time he had set foot in a quart room as a litigator since 1992.

          And Miss Powell has yet to appear in court on behalf of her client Donald Trump, because she is smarter than Rudy and does not want to embarrass herself by exposing their lack of actual evidence.

          And she is representing trumps national security advisor (and jailbird) Michael Flynn, Vladimir Putin‘s dinner guest in Moscow a few years back (along with Jill Stein). Of course, despite Michael Flynn and Vlad breaking bread together, there are no connections between Russia and the Trump administration. (And be sure to just ignore the $40,000 cash Russian state television paid Flynn that he later lied about under oath.)

          “Powell — who is also representing former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn in his attempt to have a Washington DC federal judge dismiss charges of making false statements to which he has twice pleaded guilty — has not made any court appearances on Trump’s behalf since he announced (on Twitter) that she would be joining his new legal team. She has, however, spent a lot of time on television making outrageous claims about the company that manufactures the voting machines used in Georgia, George Soros, and the CIA.”

        Even Zimbabwe stopped using them years ago.

        The last time mail-ins were used there, it was PROVEN that millions of ballots were sent to empty lot addresses where apartment buildings ONCE stood.

        There was OVER 50% return of these ballots mailed to over 1 million people living in these empty lots.

        NO other countries use mail ins, WTF is the US doing with them?

          I think we have far better anti fraud measures.

          Beautiful!

        6. avatar Miner49er says:

          So James, you are claiming there’s not another country in the world that uses mail in ballots?

          Are you intentionally lying or are you just ignorant of the facts?

          Here’s a partial list, with details:

          Austria Edit
          Austria enabled postal voting in 2007 by amending Article 26 of the Constitution of Austria. Electors request an electoral card that can be completed in person or in private and sent via post. In the 2017 election, roughly 780,000 postal ballots were cast representing 15% of all ballots.[11]

          Canada Edit
          The ability to vote when in-person voting is not possible was first introduced with the Military Voters Act in 1917, giving the right to vote to all Canadian soldiers. Public servants became eligible in 1970. The right was further extended to civilian support personnel on Canadian Forces bases in the 1977. In 1993, Bill C-114 extended the special ballot vote (Special Voting Rules) by mail to all Canadian citizens.[12]

          Use of special voting rules including vote by mail has grown with each election. In the 42nd general election (2015), the number of voters increased by 117 percent over the previous election to roughly 619,000.[13] This number grew to roughly 660,000 in the 43rd election (2019) representing 3.6 percent of electors.[14]

          Finland Edit
          Finland introduced vote by post in 2019 for eligible voters living permanently abroad and eligible voters staying abroad at the time of the elections.[15]

          Germany Edit
          Absentee voting has existed in Germany since 1957, originally in order to ensure that all German citizens, especially the old, sick, and disabled, and citizens living abroad, have the opportunity to participate in elections. At first, postal voters had to state why they could not cast their vote in person on Election Day; but this requirement has been dropped in 2008, allowing everyone to use postal voting. Like in many other countries, in more recent years, voting by mail has become increasingly popular among younger and non-disabled citizens residing within the country; as such, various tools are being developed to help citizens, both domestic and abroad, more easily apply for postal voting.”

          With a global pandemic occurring and 1000 to 2000 Americans dying every day, mail in voting is a reasonable accommodation.

          Of course you Covidiots don’t think there is a pandemic, you probably won’t believe it until the John Deere is shoving the dirt on to your box.

        7. avatar James Campbell says:

          I’ve made it clear in NUMEROUS prior TTAG comment sections that the mailing out (in leftarded leadership states) of UNREQUESTED ballots is the problem, NOT the absentee/requested ballots.

      All good, I was so worried that there would not be anybody to take my order in the restaurant, glad to hear they’ve been secured.

      “Scytl (here), headquartered in Barcelona, delivers election modernisation projects for the US elections, including but not limited to online election worker training, electronic ballot delivery for remote voters and real time online visualisation of electoral results (here). The Scytl website shows that the company has eight offices around the world but none in Germany (www.scytl.com/en/contact/).

      Scytl published a statement on its website (here) refuting all of the claims made in the article and social media posts: “Following several erroneous statements that have been published in digital and social media, Scytl would like to clarify the following […] The technologies implemented by Scytl in the US are both hosted and managed within the US, by a local subsidiary, SOE Software, based in Tampa, Florida; We do not tabulate, tally or count votes in the US; We do not have servers or offices in Frankfurt; The US army has not seized anything from Scytl in Barcelona, Frankfurt or anywhere else.”

          So Kevin you would rather that we support Russian workers and help fund their military arms industry?

          You do know the Russian units have engaged United States military assets in Syria, correct?

          And yet you would rather permit and encourage the support of the Russian arms manufacturers rather than nurturing American firearms manufacturers where your neighbors and friends are employed?

          That is a very interesting slogan for someone who considers themselves a conservative American patriot but let’s see how it sounds:

          Kevin Walther says “don’t buy American, Buy Russian!

          I’m sorry, I just can’t hang with that shit.
          I have to say, keep your friends and neighbors employed right here in America, Buy American weapons!

      Good news: Big stuff like confiscations and bans are off the table.

      Bad news: Executive orders can harm availability, from magically re wording ATF definitions to try to ban things like Green tip ammo, like the Obama administration tried to do, but luckily failed. Even if they fail, it continues to perpetuate the Great Panic, which may not end until 2022.

      My guess is with congress stopping any gun legislation, Biden tries a slew of these EOs and ATF rulings to attempt to ban “high capacity mags”, semi auto rifles, all imported guns, and maybe try to ban green tip again. Those will all probably fail in the courts, but again, the panic driven population will give availability a rough go of things for the foreseeable future.

      1. avatar Anymouse says:

        Dems have already shown how to stop executive orders: get a nationwide preliminary injunction from a friendly court. EOs redefining arm braced pistols as SBRs, 80% receivers as receivers, and no imported semiauto as “sporting” could make buying new ones difficult while the cases work themselves through courts, unless there are favorable injunctions. Green-tip doesn’t need the statutory definition of AP ammo ( core isn’t entirely made of restricted metals, jacket isn’t more than 25% weight, and, arguably, isn’t greater than .22). Of course, statutory definition of machine guns didn’t stop the bump stock redefinition from going forward.

      2. avatar TheUnspoken says:

        Sounds like the ATF is already giving trouble on importability for pistols, braces, and talks of 80% lowers. I would expect a flip flop on who has to pay ITAR and that veterans needing fiduciary management can’t buy guns rule, more fights over 3D printing. The bump stock ban has so far defied any attempts to strike it down and isn’t settled yet so that doesn’t bode well even with our supposedly gun rights friendly Supreme Court. Hopefully if anything is ordered the Supreme Court ultimately gives an expansive ruling protecting the second amendment, but that is still a hope and not certain.

    Biden is appointing corporatist oligarchs to his cabinet, much to the chagrin of the far left. Their only concern is making money by squeezing us peasants of all we have. Sure, they’ll make an attempt at gun control, but with such a close Congress, even if they have the Senate, they won’t get too far. I beginning to think the whole stacking the Senate thing was just to bamboozle the Bernie Bros and far left intellectuals into voting for Biden.

    And Trump isn’t finished yet. Expect a surprise from that quarter.

    Whatever the case, keep buying what you can. It’s better to have it than not.

    1. avatar Miner49er says:

      So you want corporate oligarchs in the cabinet?
      Donald Trump is your man, he has the wealthiest cabinet in history, my personal favorite is 20 year Rothschild banking man, Wilbur Ross but he’s not alone.

      “In just two and a half years, the president has replaced 12 of his 23 cabinet positions—some more than once. The current lineup includes 17 millionaires, 2 centimillionaires and 1 billionaire. They’re worth $3.2 billion in all, just a hair more than the president himself.

      Amid all the upheaval, the richest have stayed in place. Betsy DeVos (secretary of education, $2 billion), Wilbur Ross (commerce, $600 million) and Steven Mnuchin (treasury, $400 million)—who have all been around since February 2017—make up 95% of that $3.2 billion total.”

  21. avatar DerryM says:

    Aaron Smith’s article outlines a plausible scenario for Biden’s possible Administration to fuel American gun buying at new record levels. My concern is that our current Social, Political and Scientific beliefs and memes are being endlessly driven by “plausible”* argument in lieu of evidence based facts. No claim about anything now needs to meet an evidential criteria more rigid than “plausibility”. Once established as “plausible” the agenda-driven “News Media” [largely controlled by the Left] gloms onto said claim {particularly if it is good propaganda} and touts it as absolute truth, or buries it by intentional omission {if it does not fit the Left’s agenda memes}. Too often we are direly affected by plausible claims promoted to incontrovertible truth by the Left, only to find-out the “science” driving that claim was deeply flawed and erroneous. The COVID-19 situation is a good example.
    So, my reaction to Aaron Smith would be to say his cited estimate of 585 million guns in private ownership means we are about halfway to where we ought to be. We should not be buying guns out of “fear” but out of aggressive defiance to the Corporate giants, Elitist Marxists and corrupt Politicians {all pretty much one-in-the-same} who continue to think they can impose their tyrannical rule upon us. We definitely should not “Relax”.

      That is exactly the strategy behind the ‘election fraud’ hoax, no evidence of fraud, just a lot of harebrained speculation presented as ‘facts’.

      1. avatar Tim in Texas says:

        There’s lots of evidence of voter fraud. They even admit that errors, mistakes, fraud, and attempted fraud are made every election cycle. That’s why even just the semi credible news outlets are using the qualifier of “widespread” before their claims. The question is HOW widespread. Biden may win, but until the recounts and courts are done with it, we have no idea how bad the fraud is

        1. avatar PMinFl says:

          I think that the supreme court MUST intervene soon and require a new election to be held asap. The voters should know who they support for president by now. No months long lead up, no endless fund raising, no bombardment of political ads, just an election SOON. In person voting with valid photo id, absentee ballots only for servicemen or the elderly infirmed. In short less chance for fraud and deception, we deserve better.

        2. avatar Kevin Walther says:

          Bottom line: Fraud vitiates everything. This is why Trump’s team is producing and organizing irrefutable evidence. This why the Scytl servers were removed in Germany by Army Special Operations. Make a mental note of the company names Dominion, Scytl, Smartmatic and others. You’ll be hearing about them soon if you haven’t already. With regard to Fraud check out US vs. Throckmorton. Also research “Fraud Vitiates Everything”.

They still supply the military after all, and not going to lose trillions to save a few hundred million a year. The DoT can regulate all imports away anytime they want to. Simple and no need to pass congress at all.

    Brian Rafn says we will be able to buy all the guns we want. At what price. With what restrictions. At what penalty. I think he is an idiot Yup. Then we will will have to pony up another $200 and wait 10 yrs for the paperwork to be approved and get the tax stamp for each gun. Of course Biden will require your local Sheriff to approve your form and likely restrict how many guns and magazines per gun you may have. Then we will register every magazine over 10 rnds, which is every magazine I own and fork over another $200 tax per magazine and then pay a laser engraver to add a serial number to each one. Why pay someone to engrave your mags. Because Bidens KGB will specify the laser only process and a specific font and size. Add another $20 engraving fee for each mag.

    And then theres Ammunition. You can bet that will be regulated and taxed heavily also. The courts will back every onerous restriction, tax and regulation.

    Oh and in your face KGBATFE inspection of your gun storage will be the law. The gun owner must pay for the inspection. Add another $200 for KGBATFE inspector fees. ONLY 10 ga steel 16 bolt gun safe bolted to a concrete slab with a S&G lock or electronic equvilant is acceptable gun storage. Add another $1200 And it must have a monitored alarm system at another $30 a month and $250 installation. Oh that inspection. Its annual. $200 every year for a KGBATFE inspection of your guns and storage.

    Also every gun owner will be tracked by the KGBATFE of his internet searches, posts, blog subscriptions, traffic offenses, how much booze he buys, the age of his car, his kids grades, and who his friends are. Gun owners will be ranked as to their political party engagement and social standing. Low scores in this ranking can effect ones ability to own a gun.

    The communists will say they honored the 2nd Amendment. Taxes, compliance fees, and the storage requirements will make gun ownership a rich mans endeavor. And being a good communist is essential if one wants the privledge of gun ownership.

    This is what Brian Rafn left out

    Every gun law abiding gun owner must speak out loud and clear against Bidens Communist Regime. We aint gonna submit to tyranny. We aint going to pay for a right. And we aint going to surrender.
