Biden-Harris Admin Giving Taxpayer Dollars to States that Adopt Gun Control

The Biden-Harris administration has cooked up a scheme to use taxpayer dollars (your money!) to incentivize states to pass laws that punish responsible gun owners. 

They’re calling it the “Safer States Initiative.”

Basically, they want each state to appoint a gun-control czar to help enact various anti-2A laws. Everything from criminalizing private transfers to banning black rifles to confiscatory red flag laws is on the agenda.

Official Safer States Initiative Blueprint:

  • Establishing a State Office of Gun Violence Prevention;
  • Investing in evidence-informed solutions to prevent and respond to gun violence, including community violence interventions, Crime Gun Intelligence Centers, and implementation of Extreme Risk Protection Orders;
  • Strengthening support for survivors and victims of gun violence;
  • Reinforcing responsible gun ownership, including by requiring safe storage of firearms and reporting of lost and stolen firearms;
  • Strengthening gun background checks, including by enacting universal background checks legislation and removing barriers to completing enhanced background checks; and
  • Holding the gun industry accountable, including by banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines and enacting firearm-specific liability laws to ensure that victims of gun violence have their day in court.

GunsAmerica reached out to Mark Oliva, the managing director of public affairs for the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), for his insights on this initiative.

“The White House, knowing that their gun control wishlist doesn’t stand a chance in Congress, is looking to outsource their out-of-touch agenda to the states,” Oliva said via email.

“This includes franchising, at taxpayer expense, offices similar to that of the Office of Gun Violence Prevention that are staffed with former gun control lobbyists,” he continued.

But Oliva’s primary concern is the lack of focus on criminal accountability. He suggested, quite rightly, that instead of targeting law-abiding citizens and their constitutional rights, the government should enforce policies that incarcerate criminals.

Oliva also noted the administration’s alignment with the Soros family, which is funding and perpetuating a radical agenda on gun control.

Using taxpayer dollars to fund gun control is wrong. But that doesn’t mean states won’t line up to take the money. The lure of federal funding may prove too tempting for some, even if it means enacting measures that infringe upon the rights of law-abiding gun owners.

You’ve got to admit, it’s a pretty slick move by the President and Vice President. But here’s the deal: it’s on us to make sure this doesn’t fly.

Time to pick up the phone or fire off some emails to your state lawmakers. Let them know exactly what you think about the Safer States Initiative. We can’t just sit back and watch this happen.

    “Safer States Initiative” “Reinforcing responsible gun ownership”
    This should include funding for marksmanship courses and competitive shooting events.

    While this law is abhorrent, and illegal, it is not what gripes me the most. What really pisses me off is D.C.’s never-ending thirst for growing the Federal Government, or aiding states to grow their government.

    More government = more laws = less freedom. That equation is as reliable as e=mc2. Both are infallible.

    The only reason the left wants all this garbage is to turn us into a socialist/communist state, where we cannot argue with any of their ridiculous and oppressive mandates! This is not China, this is not Russia. This is not any other place that does not allow its citizens the constitutional right to bear arms! This is guaranteed in the constitution! Therefore, the Democrats illegal attempt to take our rights away should be considered a violent assault by an enemy combatant!

    These commies must go one way or another.

    The democrats are so bent on taking away our gun so they can control the people. They know as long as we sill have our guns they will never control the people. They act like that guns kill people. It’s the deranged and incompetent humans that kill people. No matter what they do to the people there will always be humans killed,because the deranged being will always find a way.

      ironically those deranged people are the democrat’s main voting pool……..should put some context to the laws and rules being imposed on all of us!

    The author takes care to describe the money that the national government gives out as “our money.” BUT is that how it still works? Is there still a relationship between the money the national government takes in and that which it pays out? The government controls the money supply, which is denominated in a currency it controls. It is a fiat currency, unbound to any other value-bearing medium like precious metals. Why must a national government with that kind of control balance a bugdet? I guarantee the keepers of the money presses don’t think they need to – they don’t even need to print the money any more. They see it more like money creation and destruction, that taxation is taking money out of the supply to find a more equitable balance between inflation and unemployment.

    I am not advocating this modern monetary theory. Honestly, it makes even my centre-left blood run cold. I am just pointing out that the people making these policies don’t see it as your money. I don’t think they think it is their money, either, but they do feel a responsibility to tinker with the supply in a way they believe will make the world a better place. It is best to remember that these people think they are saving the world, no matter what cockamamie scheme they are pushing.

      Note, the Federal Reserve is NOT federal and there are no reserves. The fed was a creation of 7 elite international financiers while holding a secret meeting in 1910 on the private resort of Jekyll Island. With the Fed Reserves Act, a crypto central bank took control of the US as congress abducated it duty to regulate the money supply. ([{“Congress [not private banks] shall have the power to coin money and regulate the value thereof.” – Article 1 of the U.S. Constitution.}])

      As Amschel Rothchilds said, “give me control of a nations money supply, and I care not who makes it’s laws.”

      In just a few short years the US would be plunged into WWI to save bank loans of war profiteers and countless financial crises would follow in the decades to come. In George Washington’s farewell address, he warned of “entangling alliances.” You know, like being drawn in to the strange world vision of the global masters and the latest hot spots. Gaza or Ukraine I wonder if Washington had a point?

        We come so close to agreeing without actually doing so, Kane! Still, quite a bit of common ground here.

        If we cannot define a dollar – $1.40 in an ounce of silver, $20 or $35 to an ounce of gold – who can really say how many are supposed to be in the money supply? Can we define a dollar? Is the minimum wage the most rigorous definition of a dollar today? $7.25 before taxes for 60 minutes at Taco Bell. Are calls for raising the minimum wage really just calls to debase the dollar? It starts making for some weird ouroboros thoughts.
