Joe Biden Is Hesitant About a Day One Assault Weapons Ban Executive Order

 

 

Biden gave just one example of how he’d exercise restraint, saying he would resist a suggestion that he “do away with assault weapons.” Said the president-elect, “No one has fought harder to get rid of assault weapons than me, me, but you can’t do it by executive order. We do that, next guy comes along and says, Well, guess what? By executive order, I guess everybody can have machine guns again. So we gotta be careful.”

    Fact is, everybody SHOULD be able to own machine guns! The socialist regime of FDR did tremendous damage to this constitutional republic but the NFA was the worst!

      Yup. Arms are arms, and shall not be infringed. It doesn’t matter if it’s sticks and stones or the Death Star. If the government can have it, then for damn sure the people better have it, to keep an overeaching government in check.

          First…Jim Crow Gun Control joe and the ho can go to hell. Second,..The time to be polite is over. Instead of preaching to the choir write your Senators and give them a piece of your mind and if necessary that includes a FU. And do attach a request for your Senator to inform RINO mitt romney it will be a cold day in hell before that ratbassturd gets your vote. And include you did not appreciate the turtle mitch the tightwad bitch rolling out the red carpet for joe and the ho and making you want to puke.

          And Gun Control? Any pompous lowlife democRat who is surrounded by armed security who thinks he/she can shove a sick agenda that is rooted in racism and genocide down the throats of law abiding Americans can go eat sht. Bottom line for Gun Control Zealots…You want them mr and miss Gun Control Racists and Nazis then shut the f up and just try to come and get ’em. Do make sure your gutless behinds are leading the charge.

          Let’s cut the chase…The democRat Party is the party of slavery, segregation, Jim Crow,, the KKK, lynching, Eugenics, Gun Control and other race based atrocities including slander and libel and rigging elections to keep those who oppose democRats from running for public office or holding public offiuce.. Shades of all past democRat Party filth are alive and well today in their deranged socialism and marxism that they want everyone to bow down and accept. That’s a problem because Americans bow to no man so the only solution is for democRats is to take their socialism and marxism and shove it back up their Rat behinds.

          In closing do feel free to read my mail on the floor of congress and let it be known I mean every damn word of it. Have a nice day.

        I was just thinking, where have I heard that before? Perhaps Obama saying he couldn’t implement the “dreamer” program without Congress? What Biden means is he’ll try to get it through Congress, then do it anyway if he can’t.

      A plain reading of United States v. Miller, 307 U.S. 174 (1939), the Supreme Court holds that WEAPONS SUITABLE FORMILITIA USE are the one protected by the 2nd Amendment. This seems simple enough.

    2. avatar Albert L J Hall says:

      I really do NOT understand the American fascination with firearms. Given the number of firearms out there, [the estimations for LEGALLY held firearms exceeds by a considerable amount the number of citizens and the number held illegally is not of course not known but taking the fact that less than TEN PERCENT of gun crimes involve legally held firearms it must be very considerable] . Having said that I think that if I lived in the USA I might just join the club and have an inclination for a self protection firearm but what I am talking about is far more than a wish for self protection. It’s about that fascination and serious lack of discipline disguised as a Citizens absolute right. I served in the UK Forces for nigh on two decades both as trained Infantry and as an Royal Air Force Armourer so I’m familiar with all types from the humble .22 to the 40mm 40/70 Bofors and all bombs/missiles/ demolition including Bomb Disposal, AAA and aircraft cannon then current so I’m not commenting as a bloody amateur and I was pretty damned competent in all of them as wel. the thing that most bothers me is how ready many, many Americans, if you believe their more lurid and outlandish ravings are prepared for Civil Insurrection and War as a means of changing the political system. WE in the UK and Europe and the wider CIVILISED DEMOCRATIC world all have problems, at one time or another, with all our governments. But we use the ballot box and since Oliver Cromwell have seldon contemplated Armed, or even UNARMED, Insurrection The ballot box is good enough and hey! If we do NOT like you, and you do not cut our particular mustard or do your job, you are out on your bloody ears ‘toot sweet. ‘ John Major David Cameron, Gordon Brown, Theresa May all failed the electorate and all paid the price! At least Tony Blair and Mrs Thatcher had the decency to resign.
      An illiterate ignoramus, and that’s putting it mildly, like Donald Trump would not have lasted six months in any other developed democratic country but the USA. The man who promised to ‘Make America Great Again’ has merely succeeded beyond all measue in making it a laughing stock from which it will take more than one Administration to recover from.
      America should perhaps reflect one one simple thing. Every time America has adopted an ISOLATIONIST policy it has been followed by serious recession
      BUT it is to the lasting shame of the USA that the only person that the most powerful nation in the world replace Donald Trump with seems to be a geriatric showing signs of dementia.

      1. avatar rt66paul says:

        While Trump is his own worst enemy, he at least has our backs. If you think Trump is a laughing stock, just you wait for Biden, who is obviously in the mid stages of elderly dementia.

        What Trump has done for this country will go down in history, like what Teddy Roosevelt did. Neither one was liked by their own of the other party. I do not particularly like Trump and his way of governing, but he is doing what is needed.

        Our 2 party system is a big problem. In many other countries, a parliament has control, with many parties supporting each other. That may be better than the polarization our 2 party system has created in this country.

        1. avatar Sam I Am says:

          “In many other countries, a parliament has control, with many parties supporting each other. That may be better than the polarization our 2 party system has created in this country.”

          I seriously invite you to read news reports of the last year regarding the parliament of Israel. But first, look deeply into the parliamentary history of Germany between 1919 and 1933. Another instructive episode is that of Russia between February 1917, and August 1917, as the form of government was essentially parliamentary.

          Here is a very brief overview of parliaments vs. American two party system (hint: the English Parliament has two major parties with which the lesser parties align and un-align as needed)

          In the British Parliament (legislature), the two leading parties are: The Conservative Party, officially the “Conservative & Unionist Party”, and commonly known as “The Tory Party” or “the Tories”; The Labour Party. Thus, one rarely hears of The Liberal Party, or others in political news reports. Each of the major parties has to negotiate with lesser parties in order to obatin/retain a controlling majority. Control of politics/parliament in England can be changed, or outright stopped, if neither major party can create a ruling coalition with the lesser parties.

          In American politics, the two major parties are Democrat and Republican. Within each party are minor parties who sign onto, or disassociate from one or the other major party. The major difference is that the minor parties are very rarely identified during negotiations of the major party agenda. The really big difference between the U.S. and England is that the U.S. has never had “government” (Parliament/Congress) dissolved, and new, out-of-cycle elections conducted in an attempt to create a new ruling coalition. In England, minor parties can call for “vote of no-confidence”. There is no “term of office” for Parliament. In parliamentary systems, it is quite possible to have no sitting government for significant periods of time (talk about budget issues).

          So, England is a nation of two-party government, as is the U.S. In England, politics are discussed in terms of a “Conservative”, or “Labour” government, while in the U.S. politics is discussed in terms of “Democrat”, or “Republican” government. In the end, both nations are governed by politics of two major parties.

        Bloody wrong you are bloke. Ever since we whooped your behinds in the 1700 and 1800’s we have evolved into a gun culture. Americans have been cowboyish since then. You sure didnt mind us saving your fish and chips with a spot of Tea bombs during WW 1 and 2. An armed society is a polite society unless tin pot dictator wannabes get in our own business. We are a very civilized society with a small loser few trying to cancel our culture. Thats why the framers wrote the 2nd. To protect ourselves from tyrants when all other political aspects break down. And it will CONTINUE that way in the future. Now get back to your crumpets and may God save the Queen and bless the USA

        The short answer is that the communist (formerly known as the democrat party) has cemented their election theft mechanism in place. There will never be another valid contested election here ever again. Clear enough for you? Second, I’m giving you the benefit of the doubt in that your post is factual and accurate.

        The unmitigated nerve to bash on Trump when Boris is your PM, how delusional does one have to be. But hypocrisy is a national character trait of the United Kingdom and that’s coming from someone who loves the Brits.

        Not only did I live in the UK but before moving back to the US and becoming a 2A advocate, I did work for the Gun Control Network and was at Whitehall the day guns were effectively banned in the UK. Then I went home that night and turned on Cops London to watch a video a newstand down the street from me get robbed by two thugs who walked in and threw a brick in the face of the agent behind the counter. UK may have a lower homicide rate but you do live in a country that intentionally under reports violent crime in order to deflect from the fact that your laws don’t work. There’s a brutality to violent crime in the UK that I just haven’t seen in the US.

        Maybe if guns were as prevalent in countries like Germany and the UK as they are in the US you guys wouldn’t be getting your @sses handed to you by water hoses and billy clubs when you out and protest things like the ridiculous restrictions being levied on you due to Covid. Americans think it’s crazy in Democrat run states but what’s going on in your neck of the woods is absolutely insane.

        Making fun of and belittling your allies who had your back in two global conflicts, sent you money, supplies, arms, troops, ships, planes and everything you desperately needed to keep your own nation after Dunkirk doesn’t sound like a really good idea, does it?

        Her Majesty’s Armed Forces currently number 148,500 plus perhaps 50,000 reserves and auxiliaries. That is to protect your “kingdom” of about 68 million people.

        The United States has approximately 1.3 million active-duty troops, with another 865,000 in reserve.

        The Chinese “Peoples Liberation Army” has 2.8 million active soldiers with unknown reserves that probably amount to at least another half-million. They have more ships than England ever did, more missiles, more of everything.

        So by all means, keep mocking the only nation who has even half of what China does and has any hope of even slowing Chinese expansionism. Great idea. particularly when your own nation is essentially disarmed and ripe for the plucking.

Add to the the UK policies towards is colonies over the past 100 years (think of all the lives lost in Ireland / India for a start). Then add the collapse of the British Empire.

    1. avatar arc says:

      They will likely confiscate from people one at a time as to avoid resistance, each person will surrender. The whole operation will be to instill fear of what happens if you don’t comply, and make a steady stream of examples out of people even though the number will be statistically small.

      People won’t want to live in fear and will either bury their stuff entirely, register, or surrender. Fear is a very good motivator but the people seem to have forgotten that.

      1. avatar The Crimson Pirate says:

        If it’s time to bury it’s time to use.

      2. avatar Anymouse says:

        Of course they’ll confiscate from one person at a time. We don’t keep our guns at a club and check them out when we want to use them, so they can’t collect from hundreds of people at once. If it became a widespread policy, we’d hear about it after a few days, at most. Such an abuse would start encountering resistance. Not every time, but even 1 in 1000 would mean running out of ATF agents and police before running out of gun owners.

      3. avatar LarryinTX says:

        You’re kidding, right? How many decades you figure it will take to confiscate the guns of 100 million people one at a time? Each one fighting it in the courts?

        1. avatar Sam I Am says:

          “Each one fighting it in the courts?”

          Example setting (intimidation) is a thing. Those targeted are unlikely to be people with the finances to bear the cost of litigation. Which probably includes the large majority of the alleged “100 million”. As has been mentioned, linking gun ownership (or lack of) to a government benefit will do much to cause individuals to make serious calculation of priorities.

      It would be best to keep the senate majority. The Senate still needs 60 votes to end debate on a bill. A republican majority in the Senate would also force democrats to nominate more moderate judges. I imagine it would also slow down the nomination process.

      1. avatar LampOfDiogenes says:

        Dude,

        The “60 votes to invoke cloture” is a Senate procedural rule. If they have 50/50 and Heels-up Harris casts the tie-breaking vote, they can dump that on day one of the new session – like Harry Reid did for judicial appointments (How’s that workin’ out for ya, Harry, you dumb SOB???). No, the Republican Party either keeps the Senate majority, or we are screwed, blued and tattooed.

          I agree. If, and that is by no means certain, we manage to win at least one of the GA Senate seats, 51/49 then we can stop Biden from doing anything except passing a budget.

      There is no such thing as a RINO except maybe the person using it. Even John McCain voted with the President most of the time and he was an opponent of an MSR ban.

      The use of RINO was a started as a DNC false flag operation to divide Republicans and it worked.

      1. avatar Dude says:

        “There is no such thing as a RINO”

        Respectfully disagree. Have you heard of the Lincoln Project? They were “republicans” concerned about the “country,” AKA Trump. The plan was to fool weak-minded people like you know who into believing that the group was SO concerned that they were willing to go against the people of their own political party! “Hey look! They don’t like Trump and they’re REPUBLICANS!” It was painfully obvious to anyone with half a brain that they were RINOs. What conservative policies would a Biden presidency and a democrat majority senate produce? Now that the Orange Man is on his way out, they’re finally coming out of the closet and admitting that they’re democrats, and now they’ll just focus on getting rid of those pesky republicans.

        1. avatar tdiinva says:

          The Lincoln Project fall under the heading of #nevertrumper. They abandoned the Republicans up and down the ticket. Romney voted with Trump on virtually major issue. His beef with Trump was personal not political. Same with McCain.

          No such thing as a RINO.

        2. avatar Dude says:

          Okay fair enough. I can think of another word to describe the nevertrump so-called republicans: opportunists. They pretended to be republicans because it helped their cause. See Evan McMullin, Anthony Scaramucci, and their groups like Stand Up Republic and Right Side PAC. How does one go from Trump’s biggest cheerleader (Scaramucci) to criticizing everything about Trump? Simple. They’re FOS and stand for nothing but themselves.

        3. avatar Dude says:

          Another interesting characteristic of NeverTrumpers: they often have ties to Bush-McCain-Romney.

        RINO’s are a real thing. Romney created the first version of ObamaCare in Massachusetts, and McCain cast the deciding vote not to kill ObamaCare on a national level. Romney also set the Mass assault weapon ban in place after the national version’s sunset in 2004. Those are two of the worst RINO’s, but there’s plenty more where they came from.

          The Massachusetts healthcare plan endorsed by then Governor Romney was Newt Gingrich’s idea for alternative to Hillarycare. Romney really had nothing to do with the Massachusetss ban. The Democrats had veto proof majorities in the Legislature. The ban would have been worse without Romney. McCain voted against the final attempt to repeal ACA to spite the President. He was going to vote for repeal when he thought it would pass but when Rand Paul came out against the repeal McCain saw the opportunity to hurt Trump so he voted no. Is Rand Paul a RINO.

        4. avatar Dude says:

          Paul is one of the few Senators that actually has principles. He wanted a clean repeal. I think he just refused to vote yes on the obscene budget. McCain was such a bitter soul, he went to the grave flipping off Trump.

      3. avatar rt66paul says:

        Trump is not a real Republican – thank God! He has done what no Republican has done since Teddy – gone up against the corruption of the huge corporations that try to control both sides(and have been for years).
        Trump is for what is best for the country(business, not imports). He has shown he wants the U.S. to get back to manufacturing product, limiting foreign control, building industries so we have essential products for national security. He has made us energy independent(he does need to do more to help alternative sources of energy). All in all he has been an old style Democrat, like Harry Truman, who actually cares about his country.

        DDay,

        The senate majority matters tremendously.

        Sadly, I’ll bet that less than 10,000 people in our nation understand that incredibly important fact.

        Even though Republicans do not have a large enough majority in the U.S. Senate to pass favorable bills, they have enough of a majority to BLOCK the U.S. Senate from passing garbage bills. Quite often that is just as important as passing favorable bills.

          uncommon,

          All you said was true, but not complete. Cloture is a Senate procedural rule – the Senate can change it by a simple majority vote, any time, like Harry Reid did for judicial appointments (Thanks, Harry, you incredible [email protected]$$). The Dims have ALREADY threatened to do it, if they take control, and I have no doubt that they mean it. Cocaine Mitch should return the favor on day one of the new Senate (assuming we win the two GA runoffs), and jam some stuff through. Nancy would never let any of it pass the House, and Slow Joe and the Ho would probably veto it, but at least it would keep them busy!

        3. avatar LarryinTX says:

          Good point, ING, Senate is now around 50 Republicans and one Democrat.

  9. avatar Robin Dean says:

    There is no such thing as an “assault weapon”.

    There are purely military/police weapons, fully automatic and they require a special ATF license to own or possess, so no issue there.

    Semi automatics, regardless of their appearance, are just ordinary guns, nothing fancy, no special “killing capacity”!

    Get the government out of all personal gun ownership, Second Amendment rules.

    1. avatar LarryinTX says:

      If you’re going to post here, you should spend an hour learning some little bit what you’re talking about. There is no “special ATF license”, other than to buy and sell such weapons. You have to pay a tax. After which they are not “purely military/police weapons”, on top of which do you think military/police are something other than human? If they have them, why shouldn’t I have them?

    EO curtailing 2A will fail with the current SCOTUS lineup. And that’s why GA is so important. Dems take GA and they can add 2 new anti-2A justices and give John Roberts back his swing vote power.

    1. avatar DDay says:

      They would add 4 liberals making the court 13 members and 8 of them hard core libs. They wouldn’t need roberts. In addition they make DC a state for 2 more dem senators, end the filibuster and pass every liberal fantasy into law. SCOTUS would approve it if went to court

    Slow Joe better tred lightly…there’s a helluva lot more of them there scary rifles now compared to 1994. Does the sniffer get that??? Even if the dims equal the Republican’s in the senate I wouldn’t count on guy’s like Manchin voting yea…

    1. avatar S.Crock says:

      Did anyone use the scary black rifles to resist tyranny in 1994? No. As long as he doesn’t mandate door to door confiscation no one will do anything this time either. The Feds will just pick gun owners off one by one as some poor fool is caught with it at a traffic stop or a public range.

      1. avatar Anymouse says:

        There was no confiscation in 1994. You could continue to own and sell the existing guns and magazines,, but new magazines had to be 10.rounds or less, and new rifles had to omit threaded barrels, bayonet lugs, adjustable stocks, and other “evil” features.

        1. avatar LarryinTX says:

          It was those dam bayonet lugs done all the troubles, man! Look it up, every day another 1000 children bayonetted, Praise the Lord we finally got rid of them.

        2. avatar Sam I Am says:

          “It was those dam bayonet lugs done all the troubles, man! Look it up, every day another 1000 children bayonetted, ”

          It wasn’t the lug itself. It was what the lug permitted: attachment of the chainsaw bayonet. If “they” had just mandated that chainsaw bayonets required two lugs to complete the attachment, then banned rifles with two bayonet lugs, things would have just been fine.

  12. avatar Sam I Am says:

    Obama said similar things, then charged ahead, anyway.

    1. avatar Miner49er says:

      Oh, did Obama issue an executive order banning so-called assault weapons? I must have missed that.

      1. avatar Mark Norcross says:

        And Joe knows it too since Obama put him in charge of a panel dedicated to finding ways to ban scary black rifles without Congressional action, and that group concluded that an EO was not an available option,

    Follow actions not words.
    Following words over actions was, IMO, the main reason so many emoting retards had full on TDS.

    “We do that, next guy comes along and says, Well, guess what? By executive order, I guess everybody can have machine guns again. So we gotta be careful.”

    LMAO he gives way to much credit to Republicans by thinking they are actually pro 2A. We can’t even get a Republican president to control a rogue ATF that is raiding and threatening to ban 80% lowers and pistol braces. We will never see a Republican president make a push to legalize machine guns.

    1. avatar Sam I Am says:

      “We will never see a Republican president make a push to legalize machine guns.”

      Presidents cannot legitimately override legislation via EO/EA. SCOTUS would rely on tradition and history of machine gun regulation as legitimate.

      1. avatar S.Crock says:

        Also true. We will never see a “conservative” court uphold the 2A to the extent that they strike down the machine gun ban.

      2. avatar Anymouse says:

        Republican Presidents have had the ability to declare NFA amnesty periods or expand what imports are considered “sporting,” but they haven’t. Similarly, Biden can declare all semiautos non-sporting and stop their import, but not their domestic production or ownership. There would probably be lawsuits, which could go either way.

        1. avatar Sam I Am says:

          “There would probably be lawsuits, which could go either way.”

  16. avatar Giovanni says:

    The President does NOT have the authority to BAN the possession or sale of “assault weapons”. An executive order is just an official directive from the U.S. president to Federal agencies to take an action. The agency must already have the authority to take that action under Federal Law. However Biden would have the authority to ban the IMPORTATION of firearms that do not have a “sporting purpose” under Federal Law. There is a lot of leeway in the sporting purposes language in the GCA of 1968.

NOW IS DEMENTIA JOE GOING TO BAN CIVILLIAN OWNERSHIP OF BLACK CHEVROLET SUVS AND BLACK CADILLAC SUVS BECAUSE THEY LOOK LIKE SECRET SERVICE AND US MARSHALLS AND DEA VEHICLES ?

    Biden would probably like to get a bunch of gun control done. He won’t get it. There is tremendous inertia built into the system. Both parties benefit from having the status quo. The dems get to virtue signal about ‘save the children!’ and the gop gets to pocket cash from the industry and keep voters on the perpetual promise of actually passing things like reciprocity or silencer bills.

    It’s like a dog chasing a car. What happens if it actually catches it? In the GOP’s case we saw what happened in 2016. The dems? Probably the same story. They’ll find something more important to do.

    Objective Factors for Classifying Weapons with “Stabilizing Braces”

      “Regarding a Biden Ban on Assault Weapons, has he figured out what they, these Assault Weapons are?”

      Does it really matter?

      “”I don’t know what you mean by ‘glory,’ ” ‘assault weapon’ Alice said.
      Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. “Of course you don’t—till I tell you. I meant ‘there’s a nice knock-down argument for you!'”

      “But ‘glory’ ‘assault weapon’ doesn’t mean ‘a nice knock-down argument’,” Alice objected.

      “When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.”

      “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”

      “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master—that’s all.”

    No he isn’t. The Dems have stopped pretending they give a [email protected] about the law.

    If you keep track of the “trial balloons” they send out, you may have noticed that they’re trying to talk about “gun violence” as a “public health emergency.” You see, they’ve been so successful at turning a 3-week “emergency” into a nine-month-and-counting emergency that gives them the media attention and power they crave that they’re planning on starting to lump in other things like guns then use “emergency” powers to do whatever they want without regard for the Constitution.

    This is how the Dems operate. They push their message in dozens or hundreds of places then point to all of the publications and claim there is a groundswell of support.

    They are coming for your guns. You can play ostrich and put your head in the sand and try to ignore reality. That is one thing that is guaranteed to be 100% ineffective.
