Biden Announces 6 Executive Actions on Gun Control, Names Giffords Senior Advisor to Lead ATF

President Joe Biden announced yesterday a slate of six executive gun control orders covering “ghost guns,” stabilizing braces, red flag laws, and community violence intervention programs. He also named Giffords Senior Advisor and former ATF agent David Chipman to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.

The administration stressed that these measures are only “initial actions,” and called on Congress to ban “assault weapons,” private gun sales, and standard capacity magazines.

“Today, the Biden-Harris Administration is announcing six initial actions to address the gun violence public health epidemic,” the White House announced. “President Biden is reiterating his call for Congress to pass legislation to reduce gun violence. But this Administration will not wait for Congress to act to take its own steps – fully within the Administration’s authority and the Second Amendment – to save lives.”

Gun rights groups vowed to fight Biden’s measures.

“Gun Owners of America is wholeheartedly opposed to the unconstitutional gun control threatened today by President Biden – restrictions such as the attacks on homemade and brace equipped firearms and so-called ‘Red Flag’ Gun Confiscation Orders,” GOA Senior Vice President Erich Pratt said in a statement. “Joe Biden knows he cannot beat gun owners in Congress. Instead, he’s circumventing the legislative process to impose his own tyrannical vision by executive fiat.”

The Second Amendment Foundation, which focuses primarily on pro-gun litigation, vowed to sue if Biden’s Department of Justice crosses the line.

“The devil will be in the details,” acknowledged SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “Our legal team will review them and we are prepared to file suit if Biden and his administration steps over their legal authority.”

The NRA chimed in as well, saying they’re “ready to fight.”

Gun control groups praised the orders as a victory for “gun safety.”

“This is a huge victory for the gun safety movement and we applaud President Biden for his strong leadership,” said Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action. “For years, our grassroots volunteers have fought NRA-backed leaders in Washington as they ignored the fact that more than 100 people were killed and hundreds more were wounded every day –– but now, President Biden is making it clear that those days are over.

Here’s a summary of each of Biden’s orders:

  • The Justice Department, within 30 days, will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of “ghost guns.” Unserialized firearms have become a popular target of the gun control crowd in recent years. Several lawsuits have been filed calling on the ATF to redefine a firearm receiver to include products known as “80-percent receivers.” For a great breakdown of why such a redefinition would be unjustified, check out this brief by the Second Amendment Foundation.
  • 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. With Chipman in charge of the ATF, you can bet the rule will “make clear” that stabilizing braces always make a pistol subject to NFA requirements.
  • The Justice Department, within 60 days, will publish model “red flag” legislation for states. Many states have already passed red flag laws, but Biden’s order also calls on Congress to impose a nationwide law allowing a court to seize a person’s firearms without a hearing.
  • The Administration is investing in evidence-based community violence interventions. It’s unclear why this was included in Biden’s gun control agenda. These programs target the individuals who commit violent crime—not law-abiding gun owners. The efficacy of these programs is up for debate, but they don’t threaten the right to keep and bear arms.
  • The Justice Department will issue an annual report on firearms trafficking. It’s been 21 years since the Justice Department issued a report on firearms trafficking, the White House claims. Biden is calling on his Justice Department to issue a new, comprehensive report on firearms trafficking and annual updates necessary to give policymakers the information they need to help address firearms trafficking today.
  • The President will nominate David Chipman to serve as Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. They tried to sneak this in at the bottom, but it could be the most consequential of Biden’s executive actions. Chipman was an ATF agent for 25 years, and he now serves as a Senior Advisor to the anti-gun group Giffords. This nomination will give the gun control lobby even more direct access to the administration than they already had.

Biden’s gun control measures in Congress have run into opposition from the evenly divided Senate, but majority leader Chuck Schumer has vowed to bring them up for a vote. The success of an “assault weapon” ban, universal background checks, and red flag laws hinge on whether the Democrats decide to remove the filibuster and pass the legislation in simple majority votes.

    I have a strange feeling that when the gun grabbers finally get some cojones and decide to force the issue, the result will not be what they hope for. As Charles Heston once put it: “From my cold, dead hands!”. You want them, come and take them. Be warned, the attempted taking won’t be pleasant.

    Classic Biden! Instead of choosing a person respected by both policy extremes, Biden choose a woman who happens to be a lightning rod for the 2A crowd, Gabby Giffords. She’s famous for her half-truths and falsehoods about gun violence and an overall poor choice. I’d love to have her explain the president’s old chestnut about all of us needing a 12 gauge double barrel for home protection.

  • Tim April 12, 2021, 5:12 am

    This bullshit pisses me off what is dumb ass joe going to band next our right to live in a free country, can someone tell me why the people that are honest law abiding citizen never get to vote on anything except who our next president will be and we all no that your vote don’t matter the big dicks has already decided who will rule this country. We the people should demand the right to vote on these dumb ass gun band , were did our right go , the only rights Americas have is the right to get fucked by our government,

  • Tim April 12, 2021, 4:40 am

    This BS how can this president of our land steal the right of America to own gun of any kind we want. The dumb asses that goes on killing rampage will get the guns thay what even if the government bands them the dumb asses Will buy them on the black market. This is not going to stop the killing, this will just punish honest America for something that honest America never did.

  • skipNclair April 10, 2021, 12:45 pm

    None of this or these are legal. First off the government even this bozo cannot take away what is a God given right, and only rights come from God, all rights. Man nor government cannot create a right nor take them away. Next this traitor is not even duly elected so he has no authority on anyone or anything, and neither does the camel waiting to take its place. Anyone acting on this traitor’s rules, laws or authority are acting on such from again someone who is not duly elected and that makes their actions treason. so the ATF, police and anyone trying to enforce these actions are also guilty of treason and should be dealt with accordingly. All these actions are also unconstitutional and are not legal. Let us use the precedent or Marbury Vs Madison 1803 to not only fight but ignore these so called EO’s. but let us also use the words of a forefather and past president who knew more about the constitution and law then this Bozo and all politicians and lawyers put together today. His name was Thomas Jefferson the 3rd and in my opinion a great 3rd president and forefather, Now the people can either submit to the tyrants, or they can follow him though he be gone. Here are his words on laws and the constitution. “If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so.” And now another great quote from the great Edmund Burke to help you fight against not only this Bozo in the white house, but all tyrants and evil. “Evil prevails when good men do nothing.” If you do not fight this evil in our nation and the world and the tyrants that lead it you are part of the problem and are not part of the solution. The choice is your’s make it a wise one.

  • Jeremie Boyd April 10, 2021, 9:50 am

    We stand together ready for a fight. Can not be infringed upon. The laws we have are unconstitutional as it is. I understand we need some restrictions. The laws have gone to far. They are stripping rights away from the people. Tyrannical government has to be stopped. We need to fight back now. Stand together with everyone. Law enforcement are being trained to violate your rights, plant evidence and impose their will on civilians.

  • leonard April 10, 2021, 5:51 am

    im a convicted FELON, i even have convictions for felon in possession of a pistol prior to 5 years from discharge of sentence (in the state of minnesota in 1988)
    i inherited over $160,000 in 2017
    i was pulled over by a sheriff in iowa and when he asked me if i had any firearms i said” i am a convicted felon and do not have any firearms but i have a bunch of 80% lowers and complete uppers and the tooling and jig. ” he went ape shit trying to find some guns in the sewer (shit) tank of the old camper frame with the floor i was pulling. we was within 100 feet from a car wash and i even offered to pull into the car wash so he could bust the bottom out of the tank.
    talked with his back up officer who had brought the dog and he agreed that it was a good and legal business for me to have an income. after 1 hour and the deputy calling the atf he let us continue on our way and seized NOTHING!!!

    my ancestors came to america on the mayflower and fought in both wars against the inbred king of england. my ancestors bill of rights says the government can NOT INFRINGE on my right to keep and bear arms!
    i will possess any weapon i desire and do not give a shit about what the government thinks about that.
    i do not do drugs, drink, or even smoke. i have never been arrested for a violent crime.
    i do however believe that every thing they have done to an american (act of violence) and NOT been punished for, can be done to the government employees and their families.
    when you citizens do NOT demand that government employees who burn innocent children alive (at waco texas) then you tell the government and everyone else that you APPROVE of their actions! the same goes for shooting women in the head and splattering her brains all over the infant she was armed with!
    if you didnt scream out about those crimes then keep your mouth shut when they burn your children alive because they do not like you!
    i did 10 years in prison and was A.B. so i was at the top of the food chain. if government takes my freedom ill be leaving prison in a body bag as my health is bad and im old, so there is NOTHING they can do to punish me any more, so ill be so violent and take as many with me as i can. you see, im a psychopath so i do NOT care!
    your only hope is to man up and do like my ancestors and fight oppression, the courts will not do anything to the government for violating your rights. violent revolution is the ONLY ANSWER.
    i just said what you are afraid to say!

    • skipNclair April 10, 2021, 1:19 pm

      Perhaps one of the things they will try to use against you with these illegal EO’s is that you are a red flag person and a risk to yourself and others because you use drugs. Now how can they prove you use drugs? Simple the federal government has not made it legal for any drug use, and though the states have made it legal for many drugs they have records. When you go to the legal weed places they in many states ask for your drivers license, and make a copy of it. So I would think the federal government without anyone or anything longer holding it in check will use this against people as a red flag excuse.

    • SAM April 12, 2021, 8:56 am

      Everyone keeps skipping past the fact that when you sue anyone/anybody in court, you are in actuality using a branch of the government to sue the government. Is that good and proper? Hell NO. We ask them to do the right thing like paupers and then whimper when they beat us down and tell us there’s nothing else they can (or want) to do about it. BULLSHIT! The longer I see this crap continue, the more I firmly believe that I will see this nation be forced to fight a 2nd American Revolutionary War. The United States is dead. LONG LIVE AMERICA!

  • Manny April 10, 2021, 3:15 am

    Just something real simple and easy because I could go on for day’s but I’ll keep it simple and here it goes! Instead of banning to the gun’s because the guns by themselves do not DO anything spend all those funds on the PEOPLE who use those “Assault Rifles” and crack down on them… Just my 2¢…

  • mrpski April 9, 2021, 4:36 pm

    Biden’s handlers have him antagonizing the people of the United States hoping that the people will revolt, they can declare marshall law, then suspend (or end) all of the bill of rights and constitution. Watch out, this is what they are trying to do! Biden does not have a clue but Harris probably does but when the real shit hits the fan they can blame it all on Biden, quietly put him away. They will get the reaction they want but behind rocks and trees worked in 1776 and will now

  • Kent April 9, 2021, 4:25 pm

  • Kent April 9, 2021, 3:57 pm

    So now we enter a whole new phase of defending our liberty. We WILL sue them in court and get injunctions filed by smart lawyers in front of reasonable judges to hopefully stop this tyranny. No more buying favor with swamp scum politicians like the NRA used to do. The NRA is now AWOL at the worst time in our history for anti gun attacks because of their corrupt administration of our organization. I sent them a scathing note when I renewed my membership again for the 51st time last month telling them I was staying in for 1 reason: to vote them all out! They haven’t cashed my check yet. We’ll see…. Regardless, we all need to also support GOA and the 2nd Amendment Foundation to take the legal fight to them! Also, lobby your state legislatures to pass state legislation invalidating this tyranny in each state. These are the final avenues left to us under the Constitution. Pray that we prevail. The alternative is unthinkable.

  • Big Ski April 9, 2021, 3:16 pm

    I’ve read most of your pro/ con opinions. And didn’t see to much about seasoned Veteran’s, and other OLDER PEOPLE WHO HAVE A MENTAL ISSUES. These are the ones that they’ll come for because 1. Your on SSI or SSDI and have for years been prescribed drugs to let’s call it it MY NORMAL and SSI and SSDI, are paid for by the on Government. They alphabetically see that you take medications for PTSD, mood anxiety, and 50 other reasons and you’re a normal person who happens to own most of the guns, rifle’s they’re going to kick your door down to confiscate what they feel is wrong to own.
    THAT’S BULL SH*T. Being able to walk into a gun show and buy $5,000 worth of rifles and handguns and not have a background check make you do at any FFL dealer when you buy a weapon and pick it up. Also GHOST GUNS should be made to have a serial number on those parts, good luck with that I’m sure China will go along with that or Pakistan, Russia, Korea. LMAO If you’re a gun owner, you served your country, you go to work everyday you pay your taxes, HELL through in a 3;day waiting period. WHY NOT, if you got nothing to hide no big deal. And after these idiots come and take all our guns the only ones that will have guns or the thugs the hoods that rob you using stolen guns straw purchases. I happen to own a Draco pistol with an SB-47 arm brace, So what I have a 75 round drum magazine in it. I live in a 253 home community in one state, in the winter I lived in 191 home community in another state, I travel 1100 miles each way for years, and I will be the one in either the communities when the active shooter comes in I’m going to be the one with the night vision, my FLIR, and Truly Sub sonic ammo and even tho I’m 68, does not mean that I am not highly skilled and practice.
    When I bought my Draco with the SB-47 arm brace it was illegal to shoulder, then they changed it it’s okay to shoulder. So as of now it is legal that’s just one gun. I also have the class three rifle took three and a half years to get. And after two and a half years I got a call from the last three dealer that received my weapon. Wow I can take that now huh.NO FILL OUT THIS PAPERWORK, GET TWO PASSPORT PHOTO’S, GET FINGERPRINTED DIGITALLY AND TRANSFERRED TO AN ATF AND E PAPERWORK, AND GET THE LOCAL POLICE CHIEF TO SIGN OFF ON IT, AND SEND THE $200 CHECK TO THE ATF AND THEN 9 MONTHS THEN YOU CAN PICK YOUR GUN UP. DON’T YOU KNOW WHO KNOWS I HAVE THAT EVERY LAW IF I WENT THROUGH ALL THAT AND I WAS CHECKED OUT TO BE OKAY THEN WHY DO YOU WANT TO COME AND TAKE MY CLASS 3 WEAPONS MY SHORT BARREL PISTOLS. ATF&E HAD THEIR NOSE HALFWAY UP MY ASS AND SAID OKAY YOU’RE OKAY TO HAVE ONE. ALSO ON THE BUMP STOCK IN TOO.
    BUT ALL THAT WILL NOT MATTER I’M TAKING MEDICATIONS FOR YEARS, and every government branch has access to my medical records and for no reason going to kick my door in and take my weapons because of no reason.
    WELL GUESS WHAT I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE THEY’RE AT I FORGOT WHERE I PUT THEM, DURING ANOTHER STATE, SOMEBODY MUST HAVE BEEN IN MY HOUSE AND STOLEN AND I DIDN’T KNOW THEY’RE MISSING. I’LL KEEP THAT UP TILL THE COWS COME HOME.
    YOU CLEARLY SAID I’M A NORMAL UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CIVILIAN AND ALLOWED ME TO HAVE THESE. LASTLY I’M GOING TO MAN UP AND SAY I VOTED FOR BIDEN, IT COULD HAVE BEEN A CHIMPANZEE RUNNING AGAINST TRUMP, AFTER 4 YEARS THE THINGS HE SAID AND DONE THE EDUCATED COLLEGE DEGREE ARCHITECTS CPAS DOCTORS WHO LIVE ON MY STREET VOTED FOR HIM AGAIN. BUT HE WAS PRO NRA. NUFF SAID
    BIG SKI OUT 🐾🐾👀👁️👀

  • Not my president and not America’s April 9, 2021, 3:04 pm

    So as stated in the constitution when it gives the power of the executive branch, the executive branch (currently illegally occupied) does not have power to make law. The executive actions/orders can only apply to things that fall under the executive branch. None of which includes the people of the United States. If these idiots would quit giving up their rights so willingly then, the communists that are occupying our capital (with military, well pretend military guards) would not have the power that is perceived. The media is lying, the mask mandates everywhere are unconstitutional and are not law. Everything that is being pushed is not constitutional. We are also not a democracy, we are a constitutional republic.

  • Stan d. Upnow April 9, 2021, 2:54 pm

  • Jerry April 9, 2021, 2:32 pm

    I agree with biden. We SHOULD fo something about gun violence. Let’s start by:1) getting rid of the idiotic no bail laws 2) prevent violent criminals from ever receiving parole 3) expand the Federal death penalty to cover any and all murders whether by gun, knife, baseball bat, etc. (for those who say the death penalty doesn’t deter crime–we can debate that aspect but it absolutely 100% stops repeat offenders!). 3) any and all politicians wishing to pass gun control laws must first pass a test so they know what the hell they’re talking about (what’s an assault rifle-function not cosmetic features) what’s the difference between a handguard and forend, and, since every assault rifle ban wants to ban bayonet lugs–when was the last drive-by bayonetting in this country?

    • SAM April 12, 2021, 9:08 am

      But, you forgot one thing……..it’s those same idiotic traitors in Congress who are passing these anti-gun laws and allowing their chosen son (Biden) to pen illegal laws (by fiat) that would have to pass laws these same laws you list above.

        Your mistaken……Cheeto-Mans Ban on Bump Stocks….was overturned in two Federal Courts. Using the ATF’s very own definition of a machine gun…..the bump stock was clearly NOT a firearm. OVERTURNED…..Bump Stocks are no longer banned.

        That said….. I can’t think of any reason to have one. Makes the operation of the gun less accurate. Burn up ammo with little effect. But it is AMERICAN and there really is no valid reason to ban that accessory.

    It takes a special kind of stupid person to think a criminal is going to say GEE guns are illegal so I guess I will turn mine in. When guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns.

    Are you old enough to remember Jimmy Hoffa? Say or think what you want about him, but he made demands and stuck to them. It was his way or nothing when it came to unionized trucking. Pro 2A organizations and supports need to be as aggressive as Jimmy when it comes to protecting 2A rights. If not, they will be chipped away pebble by pebble until there is nothing left. You have to realize, that is exactly what the anti 2A crowd is doing, and if we as 2A supporters and gun owners agree to every little pebble, there will be no 2A or gun owning freedom left. We are the ones that know the facts about gun ownership, criminal use of firearm data, life protecting use of firearm data, the history of the freedom, the ineffectiveness of the thousands of laws on the books that do nothing but curtail freedom, it is the other side that spreads the lies, lies presented as fact data, and emotional tripe the country seems to believe and vote for. You want to save lives, ban all sugar products and save 190,000 diabetes deaths every year. Ban alcohol again, and save lives of future DUI wrecks, and families torn down by the disease and addiction of booze. Ban all drugs for the same reason as alcohol (yea that works). Ban all forms of gambling including lotteries, the family services social cost to States of people addicted to that, plus again, the family destroying consequences are enormous, and all tax payers foot the bill. Ban cars with motors bigger than 100HP, nobody needs 700+ horses for the interstate, they speed and endanger others. You can ban everything…then include the ban of the word ‘Free’ in reference to anything related to or written about the US. Look to Arlington National Cemetery, your local Honor Field, the cemeteries in France and other countries with American war dead, and think, with the current regime and those who think the way they do and want to change the US into a socialist police state, every one of those graves mark someone who died for nothing. Take this country back and don’t be afraid to stand up for your rights and those of others in every area that is under attack by the left.

    All good small first steps at putting a stop to so many of the ‘legal’ but obviously wrong-headed crap we’ve been doing, violating the spirit if the not the letter of the law. Passing psych tests before purchase would be a good one too. Treason? Hell no. Common sense and care for our fellow humans, even if it causes us gun nuts a little trouble in our silly penis-compensating quest for massive firepower.

      Hey Peteis-
      Go troll somewhere else. You don’t speak for me. Why do gun grabbers like you always have to qualify everything as “common sense” or “reasonable” I don’t need you to tell me what is common sense or reasonable. I am for “common sense” and “reasonable” limitations on abortion. When do we start those conversations?

  • James McMurray April 9, 2021, 11:26 am

    Pistol Braces were the little guys way around paying the tax for a short barreled rifle, Bump stocks and binary triggers are the little guys way around paying the tax for a full-auto firearm. The gig is up, we can still have them we just need to follow the laws. Should not be a problem for law abiding firearms enthusiasts. Most of us spend more than those taxes on ammunition (well we used to be able to) and more firearms. Go ahead and close the private sale loophole, I don’t mind filling out a 4473. This is our sport , lets make sure we can keep it by being reasonable.

      Yeah, …that would be a hard NO for me, fam.

      You people who cuck for big gov and their bank rolling puppet masters seem to be easily gas lighted.
      This whole “Tell a lie often enough…” and change the meaning of words and phrases over time, may work on a cross section of us, buy not most of us.
      If the government had the power to do this, they would have done it a long time ago. First they regulate full auto and suppressors. Then, make a declaration decades later that the full auto must have been manufactured before 1986. All illegal to begin with, but they are counting on the “choose your battles wisely” gambit. Then, slowly, they banned sport rifle imports from certain countries , because, you know- “sAnCtIoNs”. Only, they never get lifted. Then they begin small scale test runs on other items- these are done at the local level. Now, after the most ridiculous election in the history of the US, while our activities are restricted by a virus, that scared the hell out of us because we saw people dropping dead in the street in China on the news, they feel comfortable that the spirit of 76 is so far removed from the average American psyche, that as long as they provide “protection” and the age old “bread and circuses”, no one will notice that the keystone of protection from turning the US into a complete dictatorship has just about been removed. Thanks but no. I will draw my line in the sand and make my stand HERE. If I must die alone, then so be it. At least I will be able to look the founding fathers in the eye, when I get to Valhalla, Heaven, etc…

    • Edgar April 12, 2021, 12:54 am

      Someone please explain to me why the pistol brace should be an NFA item? First explain why an SBR is an NFA item in the first place. An SBR is too big to conceal. It’s not long enough to get rifle velocities…..and rifle velocities create much more deadly terminal effects. An SBR is generally less accurate than its rifle brother. So why is it an NFA item…….because some politician defined it as sinister many years ago…..and no one with any common sense has challenged this flawed rational. It’s the same with suppressors. No one has ever been hurt by a suppressor…..yet they are still so sinister they require NFA approval……..we really have stupid people running theses agencies……they don’t have the sense to HONESTLY re-evaluate the silliness of regulating SBR’s , Suppressors, or braces.

    I heard on the news Biden/Harris want to SAVE LIVES by banning AR-15s. I did some learning today. According to the 2019 FBI crime statistics their were 13,927 homicides in the US. 10,258 were by firearms. Of the 10,258 only 364 were by rifles which include AR-15s. That means 2.6% of the homicides were by rifles. Handguns accounted for 6,368 homicides which is 17 times more i believe. It also said that 1,476 were by knife, 397 by club/hammers and 600 by hands and feet. I also saw that the DOJ reported that the 1994 to 2004 Assault rifle band did not work.

    • Jake April 9, 2021, 12:22 pm

      Sturmgehwer is German for assault rifle. When he saw the MP 44 selective fire 7.92×33 rifle, Hitler called it a “Sturmgehwer.” This is the origin of the term. The Wehrmacht brass thought Hitler was obsessed with the K98 bolt gun so they called it the MP 44 for “machine pistol 44” to avoid having him cancel it. It is now called the StG 44 or Sturmgehwer 44.

    Here we go again. As well-intentioned and positive as these executive actions are, executive orders are not the right way to get these community violence intervention solutions. These kinds of solutions require an act of Congress, otherwise the judicial branch will (rightly) overturn them, like just happened with bump stocks, and we will be freshly at square one, having to start over again. It is just better to do it right the first time. Everybody tends to forget that the President isn’t a despot when their guy is sitting in the big boy chair and this overuse of executive actions have been especially bad for the last four.

    Particularly the ghost guns and arm braces are problems that should be addressed but there’s a reason they don’t address more common sense gun violence solutions via executive action, like placing limits on hi-cap magazines or closing the gun show and Charleston loopholes.

      Exactly, and I was thinking the same thing. EOs only apply to State and federal agencies, and if they are unconstitutional, they are null and void, and will be thrown out of court. It’s just an egomaniac show, and a waste of time. Overuse and abuse of EOs is out of control with this admin, since he signed 19 in the 1st month, an all time record. We’ll see how many or few of those survive…

      • Jake April 9, 2021, 12:39 pm

        Same way all the unconstitutional state orders that stole the election were overturned? They refused to even hear them.

    • No_Lefty April 9, 2021, 9:01 am

      Blue Dog, I will agree each President can abuse misuse the executive orders, and they rarely stick because the next admin changes them with a pen and the 3 equal branches (which Congress seems to forget and despise it unless it’s the same party). I resoundingly reject your opinion that the last four years were horrible as far as executive actions go, while I disagree with some of the former President’s exec actions the majority were because Congress would not act accordingly and a temporary fix was applied.

      As far as homemade guns and arm braces you can stuff your opinion (and head) further up where the sun doesn’t shine. I have one arm and using a rifle with a long barrel requires me to lay down or sit where those types of calibers are used frequently giving me less access to enjoyment for any use I deem desirable. Last I checked the English language and the Constitution were clear “shall not be infringed” is an impediment to all those who seek to subjugate the American people.

      Oaths are taken bu everyone serving the public or “We the People” to protect ALL citizens from threats both foreign and domestic and really soon it is going to come that “We the People” are going to take that back. We don’t need or want a government that gets to tell us everything we “have” to do because someone needs to look after us. I know because I already live in a liberal communist state where everything is illegal except being a crooked politician who both hands in everyone else’s pockets.

      Best keep your eyes open Blue because ‘We the People” are coming and we won’t take kindly to your line of irrational reasoning for why the government and their cronies get to be the deciders of who gets to “have” or “do”. When the people who gave them permission to serve come to take that take that permission back.
