The Trace: Biden Can Push Gun Control Alone

The Trace recently ran a piece on how “president-elect Joe Biden” can indeed get his gun control agenda through all on his own. After all, if after the Georgia runoffs the Senate remains locked in a 50-50 split, guess who gets the tie-breaking vote? Vice President Kamala Harris.

If after Georgia the Senate swings back to Republican control, Biden will have a tougher time getting all those promised bans through.

No worries, though, according to Michael Bloomberg’s agitprop generators at The Trace:

In either scenario, the Biden administration isn’t without options. Although the president doesn’t have the power to change existing laws or enact new ones on his own, he has the authority to direct agencies, set priorities, appoint leadership, and more. And Biden’s campaign signaled his willingness to act even if his proposals stall in the Senate. “Joe Biden also knows how to make progress on reducing gun violence using executive action,” his website reads.

But just in case that doesn’t go the anti-gunners’ way, The Trace helpfully compiled a seven-point list of ways a President Biden can get it done all by his lonesome:

  • On Day One, Biden could sign an executive order creating an interagency task force on gun violence prevention. Such a task force could bring together the White House, the Department of Justice, the Department of Health and Human Services, and any federal agency that touches gun violence with the goal of coordinating the national response.
  • “At a minimum, it’s crucial to nominate and confirm an ATF director who will promote gun violence prevention values and will really prioritize the regulatory oversight mission of that agency, which is something the agency really has fallen short on in recent years,” [Chelsea Parsons, the vice president for gun violence prevention at the Center for American Progress, a left-leaning think tank.] said.
  • Homemade “ghost guns” pose a problem for law enforcement after a crime has been committed. These weapons are devoid of serial numbers or other identifying markings that enable them to be tracked to their maker, seller, or original owner. Despite their frequent use in mass shootings, shootouts with police, and other crimes, ghost guns remain legal in the U.S. and can be made without a background check.

But wait, there’s more. Well, four more points, to be exact, but it’s this one so many people have ignored thus far. The Trace wants firearms accessories redefined based on their potential use rather than their design.

In the past, the ATF has taken a lax approach, a Center for American Progress report found, deferring to manufacturers’ stated descriptions of firearms and accessories for determining if they qualify for NFA restrictions. The Trace has reported on the proliferation of barely legal accessories like pistol braces, which can effectively turn a handgun into a short-barreled rifle, and models like the Shockwave shotgun, which narrowly eludes the definition of a short-barreled shotgun.

Reviewing firearms and components on the basis of their potential uses instead of their stated purpose of the manufacturer would be a start. As would making the process more transparent by publicly releasing determinations instead of sending them directly to manufacturers. “That’s something incoming leadership at ATF should really take a strong look at, because you see the industry really innovating to evade the NFA,” Parsons said.

This isn’t exactly a surprise. As of late the anti-gun side of the aisle has been a great deal more blunt, making it quite clear that they really are coming to take your guns. Check out the rest of the article here for more, if you can stomach it.

What do you think? What’s likely waiting for us in the very near future as gun owners?

      No matter what, they can’t add Puerto Rico and DC as states, even if they wanted to.

      The vote for statehood requires a 2/3 majority in the house before it can be law, and there is no fucking way the flyover states will allow that to happen, and dilute their conservative power…

        “The vote for statehood requires a 2/3 majority in the house ”

        Politics is more sublime than that. Nothing prevents Congress from establishing a “provisional” statehood with all the powers of established states. The matter would be forced into the courts (where there is no precedent) for years. For the duration of the judicial marathon, any voting by those provisional states would be valid (injunctions would be part of the marathon. Once established, those provisional states could be instrumental in passing all sorts of legislation and turning elections. Trying to unwind all that wouldl be such chaos, the SC would be hard pressed to overturn the “provisional” states. Especially after the provisionals had been beneficiaries of being on the expanded SC for a time.

        Do not underestimate the depraved minds of Leftists, nor the evil resident in the human race. You can depend on whatever it is you think they can’t do is exactly what they are doing. The drive to rule over others is immume to eradication.

        Most revolts throughout history are the result of a determined minority dominating the docile majorities. Travel to other countries, and you find that, just like ours, most people are actually apolitical; they just want to be left alone to feed themselves and their families. Such persons chose a political label in an effort to fend off those who want to disrupt lives of those who just want to be left alone.

        Even in things non-revolutionary, it is the minority that inflects change, not the majority.

What they and the far left running the country really want is the compete and total ban of all private gun ownership with the mandated complete and total extermination of every single United States citizen that possess a firearm, there families and while they are at it the mandated extermination of every single solitary United States citizen that voted for Trump.

      The don’t want to push is around, they want to exterminate us. And we may have the guns but they will have access to the full nuclear arsenal, a visceral hatred of all those who opppse them and the desire and open mandate of the complete and total extermination of all who oppose them. You know why they sometime talk about them having nukes? THEY WANT to use them to kill us!

      These are democrats. All they care about is power what they want is the extermination of the entire United States population that opposes that and them. The democrats WANT war. It justifies them getting more power and also their mandate: the complete and total extermination of the entire United States population that opposes them up to and (preferably) including the complete and total extermination of all human life in the United States minus themselves.

      To them the only good American citizen is a dead American citizen. And the best thing ever to the Democrats is the extermination of all American citizens.

    1. Didn’t Old Joe sit on a gun violence interagency task force during the Obama Administration? What exactly did that accomplish?
    2. Legally “evading” the ATF means building firearms that comply with the law, i.e., legal firearms.
    3. Ghost guns are incapable of regulation because they are not guns when purchased. You get to the point of defining anything and everything as an “uncompleted firearm” at some point. One California legislator had to withdraw a bill when it was pointed out that he was attempting to regulate chunks of aluminum, and that was never going to fly. And that is without even addressing the Constitutional issue.

    1. avatar Geoff "I'm getting too old for this shit" PR says:

      “3. Ghost guns are incapable of regulation because they are not guns when purchased.”

      They can direct the ATF to consider anything sold to be completed as a firearm to be considered a firearm.

      That will kill the 80 percent firearm kits.

      Look, I get where you’re going on that. That is different than the block of aluminum example you gave. Blocks of aluminum are not sold as being capable of being a firearm after a few hours work.

      It will have to attacked in court. The current SCOTUS will likely strike it down, but that will take time.

      And face it. If we get a major 2A victory like ‘strict scrutiny’, they will see that as being an ‘out-of-control SCOTUS and expand the court and strike down Heller.

      Hell, they will see it as being the ‘morally-correct’ thing to do, the same way the striking down of the Dred Scott decision was a moral thing to do.

      They will never accept that ordinary citizens have a right to a gun. They have to get rid of them before they can put their boots on our necks…

      1. avatar Shawn says:

        They do not accept that United stated citizens have rights in general. We should have all our rights taken away as well as everything we own and it should be legal for the state (them) to kill large portions of the population that resist him.

        To them all Trump voters, republicans, gun owners and pretty much everyone not them should not have the right to live and the Government should have the authority and the mandate to exterminate all Trump voters, republicans, gun owners as well as the right to exterminate the entire United state population that opposes them and if the entire United States population opposes them in that then it is within there right to exterminate the entire population of the United States. In fact that would be justified in there mind since what they really want is the complete and total extermination of all human life in the United States minus themselves so we can all be replaced by migrants from other countries. Just have to make sure none of them are White or Jewish. And all The Democrats have to do to get full approval of that is just exterminate all the Jews in Israel. Because most of the world would applaud that.

        I wonder what lessons the extermination of the entire United States population at the hands of the Democrats will teach humanity. Leftism will eventually die. But it will die when most of the population is exterminated by their hands. Or it will just go away when the human race is extinct. Some thing they want by the way.

        And don’t think the military would stop it. Most of the military leadership is as far left as the rest of them and would have no problem killing hundreds of millions of people. Gives them as excuse to whip out the nukes. They can just usd drones and to the Democrat government and military leadership they can just declare all member of the armed forces not in full support of the extermination of every single solitary United state citizens that oppose the democrats in any way including the deployment of nukes shall all be deemed traitors and shall all also be exterminated via nuclear carpet bombing.

And then kill every single solitary United States citizen that opposes the Democrats killing United States citizens for their guns and having an opinion. It fits well with their ultimate desire which is the extermination of all human life in the United States minus themselves.

        If you ask the people at the trace If they would approve of an appointment of the full nuclear arsenal to kill every single solitary United States citizen that owns a gun, is a post to killing all gun owners as well as killing every single United States citizen that opposes that to bring about a gun free utopia what do you think they would say? What do you think they would say but what do you think they think?

        We are dealing with a political ideology that once literally every single person not like them dead. They do not care about the means or numbers.

    Biden beat Trump by 12,284 votes, according to the final results from the audit. This is a slight drop for Biden compared to the pre-audit results.

          What the hell are you talking about, I have never advocated the killing of my political opponents, unlike just about everybody else on this forum.

          Your talk of extermination camps is nothing but fantasy, designed to justify your wild thoughts of death and murder.

          The Constitution provides for a system to petition the government for a redress of grievances, through the court system.

          This is being done, so far Donald Trump and his allies lawsuits have been dismissed as nonsense. In fact, in open court, Rudy and other Trump lawyers have freely admitted that they are not claiming any fraud has occurred in the election.

          All this talk of killing your political opponents does not serve the people of the gun community very well.

          Any prudent and reasonable person reading your comments on this forum would quite reasonably have second thoughts about allowing you people to own lethal weapons.

          Clearly, by the statements on this forum, most of you are a danger to yourself or others. You have apparently, both the means and the inclination to kill your fellow citizens without just cause.

          You bet I am in favor of gun control if it keeps nut jobs like you from having your finger on the trigger.

      That may or may not be true.

      At any rate, your argument is a fallacy. Why? Simply because absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. Even if it is true that no entity has presented evidence of election fraud to courts, that does not mean that there was no election fraud.

        I know of no evidence that you are a child molester, but absence of evidence does not mean evidence of absence, therefore you are a child molester.

      The Georgia recount was anything but an audit. People were calling Trump votes for Biden, auditors were not allowed to check and verify signatures, the whole thing was a ****show.

      The legislature may very well elect republican delegates, having no faith in the state’s election. We are passed simple election fraud and well into treason and national security.

      Presumably yes, however, certain radical democrats have stated they’re willing to use the “nuclear option”, to permanently change the senate rules to 51 votes on every legislation that comes through.

      It’s an extremely desperate gamble that will probably fail though. Democrat Joe Manchin already said he won’t vote for the invoking of the nuclear option, keeping the senate rules at 60. They need 51 to invoke this option.

      There’s also probably more democrats who are nervous about the prospect of a permanent rule change of 51 votes, as they know when the GOP returns to power they will be at their mercy. The democrats who aren’t afraid of this are ones with very safe seats, and have this disturbed notion that somehow if they take the senate they’ll somehow never lose it again. Even though 2022 is already looking rough for them.

    “State judges in Arizona and Pennsylvania and a federal judge in Georgia rejected election-related lawsuits Thursday from Republicans and the Trump campaign.

    The hat trick of losses were the latest round of defeats for the Trump campaign in its long-shot and increasingly far-fetched bid to block President-elect Joe Biden’s win before the Electoral College certifies him as the next president.
    One of the judges, a Trump appointee in Georgia, called the attempt by Republican-allied lawyers to block election results “quite striking,” refusing their attempt to stop Biden’s win there.
    In Arizona, a state judge declined to audit votes in the state and delay the finalization of results, saying the lawsuit couldn’t be retooled and brought again. And in Pennsylvania, a state judge ordered the counting of more than absentee 2,000 ballots the Trump campaign wanted to exclude.

    The rulings came with only a few hours between them on Thursday.“

        “A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by President Donald Trump and his lawyers seeking a temporary restraining order to halt certification of Georgia’s election.

        “It is well established that garden-variety election disputes do not rise to the level of a constitutional deprivation,” Judge Steven D. Grimberg ruled. “The fact that his candidate didn’t win doesn’t rise to the level of harm.”

        Judge Grimberg was appointed by the president in 2019.

        Well-known Atlanta area attorney Lin Wood filed the 188-page suit against Sec. of State Brad Raffensperger to stop the certification scheduled to be completed by Friday.”

        And another one bites the dust, dismissed by a Trump appointed federal judge.

        It doesn’t get any weaker than that, the suit was so lame that even a trump appointee laughed it out of court.

        “It is well established that garden-variety election disputes do not rise to the level of a constitutional deprivation,” Judge Steven D. Grimberg ruled.“

    “If the Army must be called out to make war on unarmed citizens, this is no longer America.”
    -Washington Daily News 1932

    https://www.nps.gov/articles/bonus-expeditionary-forces-march-on-washington.htm

    During the depression vets from WWI were due a bonus sometime around 1945, they were starving, as were their families. They marched on Washington and their shantytown in the city was destroyed by United States Army troops and Washington city police. Leading the troops to push them out of Washington and destroy the shantytown were MacArthur, Eisenhower and Patton.

    If you think the police and Army will not come for your “assault weapons”, give me a call, I have some beachfront property in North Dakota to sell you at a bargain price.

    It’s not the enlisted folks but the senior officers (both military and civilian police chiefs from major Democratic cities) , many of whom were promoted by Obamas’ gang that will be the problem

      Trump never claimed to be a POTG, much less an absolutist.

Even though Trump is/was not a professional politician, he instinctively knew there were not enough hardcore POTG to re-elect him. NV was so horrifying, that an appeal to principle would be a death knell.

          With a BP rifle we can get the weapon from a soldier. With that weapon, we can take out a patrol. With a patrol’s weapons and some ambush tactics, we can take out a platoon and get their weapons.

          Get it, Mike? With little more than BP Sharp’s rifles, we can make it very costly for them to patrol. Behind enemy lines, their families will feel very unsafe when bad things start to happen.

      While I agree it’s something to keep an eye on, I’m not sure it’s that big of a concern, if you consider the lead production fear we had a few years back.

      Obama had the last lead smelter shut down and there was a legitimate fear of a lead shortage, but it never materialized. I’m not certain of all the intricacies behind all of that, but the basic components of ammunition such as metal/powder are very difficult to regulate away. It doesn’t seem like something that could be done via pure EO or ATF regulation, or Obama likely would’ve had it done.

      But as you said, should those two producers come under some kind of influence, I doubt that there wouldn’t be a successor. Ammo and guns are at an all time high in demand and someone will see the opportunity to fulfill that demand.

      1. avatar Mike Carbine says:

        The Prince of Darkness had his EPA shut down the last US lead ORE smelter, that caused the last US active lead mines in MO to have to close. This raised the price and caused disruptions to ammo production. Along with other slight of hand during that time it near impossible to secure new ammo in the most common calibers.
        The lead used in the US if from recycling and imports that’s why ammo never went back to pre-Obama prices.
        Obama was just the field test for many non-congress means to limit your #2A. For Hillary to take too the next level. Now those planes are going to be in play again, and they will voter-fraud make sure there is never going to be a GOP president again, just in case you missed it.

        1. avatar Miner49er says:

          So the Prince of darkness had the last lead smelting plant in the US close down?
          That’s strange, you would think Satan would want more lead for more killing.

          But really, we all know you’re just a liar.

          “But the email is wrong to claim “Obama and the EPA” is responsible for forcing the plant to close after “they raised the EPA regulations by tenfold.” The Environmental Protection Agency reduced the ambient air quality standard for lead from 1.5 micrograms of lead per cubic meter of air to 0.15 in October 2008 during the Bush administration — not under Obama.

          The email is also wrong when it says the Herculaneum plant is the “last lead smelting plant in the US.” The company says the Herculaneum plant is its last primary smelter in the United States. Doe Run and other companies operate secondary lead smelting plants. Primary plants use mined resources, while secondary plants use recycled materials, such as lead batteries.

          The National Rifle Association says recycled lead “is the type most often used by ammunition manufacturers,” and the plant closing “should not have the dramatic impact that some have predicted.”

          The impending closure of the Herculaneum plant has its origins in a 2004 lawsuit filed against the EPA by the Missouri Coalition for the Environment. The environmental group argued that the EPA had failed its responsibility under the Clean Air Act to review and revise, if necessary, the air quality standards for lead every five years. In 2005, a U.S. District Court in Missouri agreed and ordered the EPA to conduct such a review by September 2008.”

          Oh wow, it was actually a republican president bushes administration vet change the EPA lead air standard.

          But between you and me, I think a lower lead/air standard is a good idea. Clearly, there was too much lead in your environment as a child because your cognitive abilities seem somewhat impaired.

        Ron did you know that of the 3 form types of modern smokeless powder (ball or sphere/flake/Stick or extruded) only the 1st 2 are even made in the USA? The EPA has barred the manufacture of extruded here in the US, some BS about toxic ingredients or process safety what not.
        Point is the Feds can shut it all off when ever they want to. Even the US military has to source it’s super spiffy sniper ammo powder from over seas, cause again, The Stick or extruded powders Powder is ‘already’ Banned from being Made here, you all get that?

        If any of you re-loaders even care what brands and types are even made here in the US ought to know this. 50% of the powder going into the new brand name ammo you all shoot is not even made in the USA. The Department of Transportation don’t need congress to limit or stop all civilian imports of modern smokeless powder.

        addendum: there is one USA made brand of extruded powder, but it’s in form only not the same chemical composition of the foreign powders. Hybrid 100V Extruded|St.Marks but, it’s the same chemical composition of other US made powders.

There’s a reason for all things. The above poll was not about an upcoming election, and it was questioning democrats, so it’s a bit different.

          “And I can tell you, we’re all looking forward to a Biden/Harris administration!”

          Do you think you speak for all Biden voters? From what I keep hearing, most of them are just looking forward to Trump leaving. There’s a difference.

    Biden to push gun control? Biden can barely push his walker.

      Don’t worry, all the paperwork, the executive orders, everything he needs to sign will be drafted for him and while they will no doubt have a signing ceremony, who knows they may already be pre-signed by machine. And empty headed Joe will just sit there and smile a lot he’ll look presidential that’ll be enough.

    Potential uses?

    Wow. That’s opening up Pandora’s box. Imagine the potential uses of cars, chainsaws, airplanes, bricks, chemicals, etc.

    What’s left?

    No matter how you look at it the Country you once new is Gone!
    Even if the (R’s) get the 2 in Georgia to make a 52 – 48 majority the Real Republican Conservatives will not have the majority! There are too many Mitt Romney’s claiming to be republicans in the senate & the house!

    Reviewing firearms and components on the basis of their potential uses instead of their stated purpose of the manufacturer would be a start. As would making the process more transparent by publicly releasing determinations instead of sending them directly to manufacturers. “That’s something incoming leadership at ATF should really take a strong look at, because you see the industry really innovating to evade the NFA,” Parsons said.

    Regarding the above verbal slight of hand, automobiles have been used by criminals as “get away vehicles”. Hammers, saws and so forth have also been used as both offensive weapons by criminals and defensive weapons by their potential victims. Oh by the way, lest I forget to mention it, firearms are and have been used by the law abiding to defend against criminal attack, as well as by criminals, something strangely unmentioned by the anti gun set. How come this? Indeed, how come this.

    If all guns are banned and confiscated, it’s easy enough to go back and start making zip guns. I knew how in 7th grade. I also knew by that time how to make gunpowder. [I just went to the local library and borrowed a copy of HENLEY’S FORMULAS. — That was in the 1950’s and ’60’s. Unless kids have gotten stupider, I’m sure they still know how to do these things.
    Prostitution has been “illegal foe more than 2,00 years. Has that stopped?
    Alcohol was banned by Constitutional amendment. Did that work?
    THE CAT’S OUT OF THE BAG, AND THE GENIE HAS BEEN LET LOOSE.
    Most people I talk to are literally threatening open rebellion if the government tries to take their guns and deny them the ability to defend themselves.

    After reading some of the comments I have only this to say. Being ready to stand against the Biden anti-gun policies and any executive orders he signs or laws he gets passed is easy to say. First in order to have any effect you must be organized into an effective force. Right now we are all just one finger of what could be a mighty fist but it takes commitment. Ask yourself if you are willing to unite with others into a fighting force that if it comes to an all out shooting war you are willing to commit to it in order to defend your 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms. If you are then now is the time to organize and train. The first thing you must do is what our founding fathers did and that is to set up a communications system that the opposition cannot tap into. This cannot be a game. If you are serious then you must, just as those that enter military service do, commit themselves to freedom , even unto death if necessary. Set up training areas for combat and weapons care and use. also set up guidelines for the handling of non-combatants and prisoners. This must be done in the most humane way possible. Talk is cheap are you willing to do what is needed and to pay for the process in money, time, and possibly your life in order to stop the socialist/communist takeover of America? Only you can answer that question. Bluster and threats will get you nowhere. Calm reasoning and organization and commitment is what those that favor freedom and the entire Constitution must be willing to adhere to.

      I wonder what the spark will be? And which way will the military jump? For some guidance you might care to consider the events leading up to, and the conflict itself, the Spanish Civil War, 1936 to 1939. Of course in Spain, the leftists won the legislature by the slimmest of margins and promptly set about fulfilling all their loony ideas as if they had a landslide majority. If they get the Senate now possibly they’ll be in the same position. And then of course there was also all the brutal extra judicial killings of priests, burning of churches, raping of nuns, Executions of political enemies, etc., etc. Who will be our Franco? What will the spark be?

      And consider that the twisted leftists are not above at all acting as agents provocateur and setting up some kind of spark with a view towards promoting an armed response and then using that to justify the seizing of guns. Who will our Lenin be? And our Dzerzhinsky?

      And of course the media is amazingly all of a sudden all pacific and good times, except for Covid of course which they blow up beyond what it is, emphasizing according to my Apple news sports and various contests both pro in collegiate. All is well, nothing to see here forget about the election, despite that it was obviously stolen in the most evident way. The only way to run an election with early voting is to have the law require that the early ballots get counted and certified first before you get to the others which by requiring in person voting are presumably more secure (this approach depends on that fact, although I am sure would this requirement be adopted that leftist evil intent would be turned towards how to make in person voting not secure and how to manipulate that, possibly through voting machines etc.). By counting the mail in ballots first, you close the door on the ability to show up two days later with a new batch with Shazam exactly the number you need to overcome the election day voting for Trump.

      Until we have a realignment along the lines of what took place in other places that have faced serious leftist penetration, like Argentina, Chile, Indonesia, where leftists were dealt with severely, this will not stop. And you thought the Muslim world a la the Sunnis and the Shias Was the only place that required a reformation like Christendom went through in Europe a couple hundred years ago which made northern Germany Protestant and Munich and France Catholic. (This is of course the underlying dynamic driving the ongoing mess in Syria, together with Iranian desires of Hegemony and Russian desires of regaining influence in the region.) The Chinese curse of “living in interesting times” is surely upon us (together with the Chinese coronavirus).

        “Who will be our Franco?“

        What is with you people and your devotion to strongman dictators?

        Franco was as bad as his ally, Adolf Hitler.

        Truly, if you need that sort of father figure feel free to unass America and live under Vlad Putin or Kim Jong Un.

          I wish I could believe that the people would rise up and put a stop to the Communist takeover of America but I do not see enough resistence to the lockdown of businesses or the stay at home orders or the mask mandates. My wife and I have gone shopping with no masks and are lucky if we see four or five free thinkers like us in a busy WalMart. The vast majority go along like a herd of sheep. My guess is that if Biden uses his Executive Order to set a high tax on ownership of semi-autos, buybacks, limits on magazines and taxes on anything over 10 round capacity, or government confiscation more gun owners will sell them back in order to recoup some of the money they spent on them. I do not think Americans have the balls for a real fight for freedom. They have been neutered by easy living.
