Ok boys and girls we now know what the solution to our problem is! :face_vomiting: :face_vomiting:

Here are the six actions, from the White House “fact sheet.”

The Justice Department, within 30 days, will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of “ghost guns.”

The Justice Department, within 60 days, will issue a proposed rule to make clear when a device marketed as a stabilizing brace effectively turns a pistol into a short-barreled rifle subject to the requirements of the National Firearms Act.

The Justice Department, within 60 days, will publish model “red flag” legislation for states.

The Administration is investing in evidence-based community violence interventions.

The Justice Department will issue an annual report on firearms trafficking.

The President will nominate David Chipman to serve as Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.

It’s just the start. Don’t let your guard down, because it’s going to get worse.

It is true that we should be vigilant, and this is just the first salvo. But…Executive orders are not necessarily a thing that can be fully enforced. Executive ACTIONS are even weaker.
This is being done because the liberals have been unable to push through legislation on gun control.
Remember also that we have the Supreme Court. Before we get there we have other avenues like the recent 6th district Federal Court rulings.
Be vigilant, but don’t panic. We will win eventually.

In South Carolina we have an “Unorganized Militia” bill that is already going through the Senate. It will likely pass. It will automatically include (unless individuals opt out) every SC citizen over the age of 17 (who is legally able to own a firearm in SC) in a state militia. Being considered a part of a military group, the “members” can not be denied access by the federal gvt the purchase or ownership of any firearm legally available in SC from 2020 forward.

Most of this, wouldn’t pass muster, if we can get SCOTUS to do their job.
Also “only a dictator rules by executive order.”
Joe Biden, October 2020.

To be sure, just the start. From the looks of the list they are going to start with window dressing to give the appearance of doing something without addressing the problem. Not one of these things addresses or would have prevented an incident that has occurred. I hate to go out on a limb but weren’t most of the mass shooters on an FBI or DHS watch list? It’ not the guns!

Wow! Red Flag Law just like the one that failed to protect anyone in the republic of boulder co. How Woke, follow failed laws with more like them so that they will fail and justify more loss of Liberty.

In the end, just more official “Lip Service” that doesn’t actually do anything, except for the fact that it puts more rules, laws and regulations on the law abiding citizens and gun owners.
When will our politicians and law makers realize the fact that criminals don’t play by any rules or laws. What they do understand in incarceration and being locked away for not abiding by them. Hopefully, more stringent trials and enforcement of the laws already in place will begin to make some difference, if the “bleeding heart” liberals would let some facts seep into their brains and mindset. Along that line, how about full time served for crime done, especially when it’s an armed offense. No early paroles or pardons and re-instituting “chain gangs” and other penalty related programs to reduce incentives for not returning to the criminal way of life? There are plenty of community activities that could be accomplished by incarcerated labor versus having contractors coming in to do it. I don’t feel that getting a college education, at tax payer expense, is much of a penalty or compensation for any crime committed against society. Just my thoughts mind you.

When they look in the mirror. Not all of course, but many.

A lot of smoke, no fire. Just another means of funneling your tax dollars to activist organizations to keep them content.

I want y’all to know that I now have warm fuzzy feelings inside watching Joe explain his new Executive Actions. We are now much safer. I didn’t realize that it only takes 30 minutes to complete and assemble a ghost gun. WOW!

Except when they look in the mirror, they only see their own virtuous image of themselves.

Pure dictatorship! The Nazis have risen! It’s also the beginning of the end!
Well maybe we all acquire NFA and turn all our guns into full auto. Give them their money and leave us alone! None of what he stated stops criminals from from being criminals.
I never heard such moronic talk, remember his job as president is to protect the AMERICAN PEOPLE, so he opens the southern border to the killers, to roam our military bases. Good job protecting us!
So far he’s executive ordered the 1st amendment, 2 amendment the 4th amendment etc…out of the constitution! I vote for the 25th and impeachment!
So I guess I can now sue, Budweiser, Miller, Chevy, Ford, when I get hit by a drunk driver???

In fact it’s quite the opposite, making more law abiding citizens into criminals. It’s that old adage we all know so well, “when you criminalize guns, only criminals will have guns.” Trite, but true.

@Bugleboy “Remember also that we have the Supreme Court.”

I respectfully ask you this: Just what has the aforementioned Supreme Court done to defend the Second Amendment? Even our “conservative-leaning” court? The answer … nothing. The last gun rights case the Court agreed to hear was over a decade ago. Ever since then they have refused to hear 2A cases. Indeed, Clarence Thomas recently lamented:

“This Court would almost certainly review the constitutionality of a law requiring citizens to establish a justifiable need before exercising their free speech rights. And it seems highly unlikely that the Court would allow a State to enforce a law requiring a woman to provide a justifiable need before seeking an abortion,” Thomas wrote, in an opinion joined by Kavanaugh. “But today, faced with a petition challenging just such a restriction on citizens’ Second Amendment rights, the Court simply looks the other way.”

Maybe we have nothing to worry about. Biden says he’s nominated Chipman to the “AFT.” Don’t know that particular organization, but I don’t think it has jurisdiction over firearms. :laughing:
