It’s no secret that Joe Biden has been trying to erode our 2nd Amendment rights for years. In 2021, he called on Congress to pass strict gun control.
He wanted to grab guns from law-abiding Americans, banning certain kinds, and limiting magazine capacity. But the Democrats who currently run couldn’t legislate themselves out of a paper bag.
So, Biden is trying to tighten gun restrictions himself.
From Just the News:
President Biden will on Monday announce his administration’s formal rule on so-called “ghost guns,” essential DIY weapons without a serial number that have increasingly been linked to violent crime.
The new rule in part changes the definition of a firearm under federal law to include unfinished parts, like the frame of a handgun or the receiver of a long gun, according to the Associated Press.
The president appears to be sidestepping Congress to redefine firearms entirely. So, Rep. Massie fires back.
From Fox News:
“The Constitution does not authorize the federal government to prevent you from making your own firearm. This a fact that has been recognized for 200+ years. Also, Article 1, Section 1 (literally the first operative sentence in the Constitution) says Congress makes law, not POTUS!” Rep. Thomas Massie tweeted Sunday.
Joe Biden is set to announce new rules to restrict the 2nd Amendment. Among his attempted changes is a rule that goes after “ghost guns,” firearms that are assembled by private citizens.
This move will redefine firearms as not only full guns, but parts of guns. You can see where this is going. Biden will try to “move the goalposts” as much as he can to expand current gun control laws.
It might not be long before he redefines “firearm” to mean even a round of ammo or the holster. Why not! Biden’s ultimate goal appears to be making it so hard to acquire a firearm that few people will get one.
Rep. Massie, along with 2nd Amendment advocates, is firing back. He reminded Sleepy Joe that Congress makes laws, not the president. He can no more restrict the 2nd Amendment than he can change the Constitution.
If Joe goes ahead and passes new rules to restrict gun ownership, expect a fierce battle. Gun rights advocates will take this to the courts immediately.
