Biden-Harris Plan Would Ban Online Gun Sales, Force Adoption of Smart Guns

(Photo: Facebook/JoeBiden)

Part of the problem with the Biden-Harris plan to destroy gun rights in this country is that there is so much to it that subtler, seemingly less draconian measures go unnoticed. 

Many of us know, by now, about their desire to ban the import, sale, and manufacture of modern sporting rifles while forcing those in circulation to be regulated under the NFA, hold a national “buyback” event to round up so-called “assault weapons” and “high capacity magazines,” criminalize private transfers, and bankrupt the entire industry by rescinding the PLCAA, which protects gun makers and dealers from being held liable for the criminal misuse of their products.    

We know they’re going to aggressively pursue those policies, via executive fiat when possible, because they’ve mentioned them time and time again while on the campaign trail or during debates or when solemnly propitiating to billionaire gun-grabber Michael Bloomberg and his gun-control outfit Everytown for Gun Safety.  

But how many of you also knew the duo wanted to completely prohibit online gun and ammo sales or force the adoption of smart guns???   

Per JoeBiden.com

  • End the online sale of firearms and ammunitions. Biden will enact legislation to prohibit all online sales of firearms, ammunition, kits, and gun parts.
  • Put America on the path to ensuring that 100% of firearms sold in America are smart guns. Today, we have the technology to allow only authorized users to fire a gun. For example, existing smart gun technology requires a fingerprint match before use. Biden believes we should work to eventually require that 100% of firearms sold in the U.S. are smart guns…

This is insanity!  Banning the online sale of firearms and ammunition is no different than banning the sale of Bibles or other religious texts on the Internet.  It’s a complete suppression of fundamental rights!

Forcing gun manufacturers and dealers to exclusively make and sell smart guns is another way to sink the entire industry.  Consumer demand for smart guns remains low because even the most cutting-edge smart gun technology has proven to be inherently unreliable.  Not only can smart guns be hacked from afar, but they can fail to activate when they are needed most.

Plus, if smart guns are truly the wave of the future, wouldn’t we by now see law enforcement and the military transitioning to them en masse?

“The radically anti-gun ticket of Biden and Harris seeks to dismantle the right to keep and bear arms in every way possible, including taking away many methods that honest citizens currently have for acquiring firearms,” said Gun Owners of America Senior Vice President Erich Pratt in an email to GunsAmerica.  

“However, banning online sales of firearms will not stop criminals from getting weapons — given that, by definition, they do not follow the law. Ironically, despite anti-gunners’ erroneous claims, online firearm sales still require a federal background check,” he continued. “Gun owners should do everything possible to prevent a Biden-Harris presidency.”

The National Shooting Sports Foundation, the firearms industry trade association, also agreed that Biden-Harris are bad news when it comes to defending 2A rights.   

“The Biden/Harris ticket poses the greatest threat to American’s Second Amendment rights of any presidential ticket. There isn’t a gun control idea they have rejected as being too extreme or believe would infringe upon God-given individual rights,” said Mark Oliva, NSSF Director of Public Affairs in an email.  

“The campaign purposefully misrepresents online sales to have voters believe they can order firearms to be delivered to their home like any other online shopping. The truth is, and the Biden/Harris campaign refuses to acknowledge, all retail firearm sales must be completed with a face-to-face transaction that includes a successful FBI background check,” Oliva added.  

Look, it’s impossible to overstate how anti-gun the Biden-Harris ticket is.  Problem we face now is getting the word out.  For whatever reason people seem not all that concerned about Biden-Harris winning in November.  Maybe because they think Trump, who is still trailing in the polls, will pull an upset again or maybe because they think that even if Biden-Harris win the GOP will maintain control of the Senate and block any gun-control legislation with filibusters.   

I don’t share their optimism for either scenario.  Even looking at the situation in terms of best case, Trump’s chances of winning are that of a coin flip.  Would you bet the health and well-being of your 2A rights on the flip of a coin?  I wouldn’t.  

And to those who confidently say that the GOP will stand in the way of the more extreme anti-gun bills, well, there’s a lot to consider.  

First, do you trust weak-kneed Republicans to do the right thing, especially when the going gets tough, say for example, in the wake of a national tragedy?  

Second, Bloomberg is dropping $60 million on the 2020 election, a considerable portion of that money is earmarked for flipping the Senate from Red to Blue.  It’s possible that going into 2021 Dems have majorities in both chambers in addition to occupying the White House!

Third, as “president,” Harris (let’s face it, she’ll actually be running the show) has vowed to enact whatever gun control she could with executive action, thereby bypassing Congress.  We saw what President Trump was able to accomplish by going that route, a retroactive ban on bump stocks that resulted in the forced destruction of once lawfully owned property without just compensation.  Harris would be infinitely more tyrannical.  

Lastly, you have to consider the long term effect of appointing radical judges to federal courts, including the Supreme Court.  The Harris administration will undoubtedly work toward eroding one’s right to keep and bear arms over time by putting anti-gun judges on benches around the country.  Overturning Heller, which affirmed the 2A to be an individual right not connected to militia service, would not be out of the question if the wrong judges are tapped to join the high court.

Biden-Harris keep saying that this election is a battle for the soul of the nation.  They’re not wrong.  Vote for them and, in short order, this nation will have no soul.  We cannot preserve what we cannot protect.

    Didn:t have to read the article to know that neither of these two “genius twits” really know what they are doing.
    Why don:t they do something really important, like try putting a ban on some of the other machines we use in our everyday lives, like cars, refrigerators, hammers, screwdrivers…! They just don:t have a real life of their own! They want to ruin everyone else’s so they are not so lonely.
    Poor little kids! They need to grow up!

    HIDIN Biden is unfit to be President or Commander in Chief of the Military. He is ALZHEIMERS stricken dementia riddled and out of his mind. The Cult of Satan insane democrat serpents have foisted this incapacitated man on US …….and have chosen a morally bankrupt and corrupt godless, soulless woman as their VP candidate. I urge all on here to read what her married lover, Willie Brown had to say about HER
    RISE IN CALIFORNICATION DEMOCRAT POLITICS.

    Take your mask off man. It’s cutting off the circulation to your brain.

  • Jim August 28, 2020, 1:42 pm

    First:Please list specifically what Trump has done in the last 3.5 years that presents a national security threat.
    Second: please list your exact reasons why you plan on voting for Biden-Harris WITHOUT mentioning Trump.
    After that perhaps we can have a conversation or debate about the pros and cons of the specific candidates and the parties. Until then its just more hyperbole from the left.
    Trump isn’t a perfect person nor is he a politician, but I believe that is why he won the election last time HE ISNT A POLITICIAN. He hasnt made a career of nor got rich while on the public payroll unlike most career politicians.
    Be warned, if Democrats take control of the house, senate and the executive office we are in for radical changes. Some may be good but the overall effects will be frightening. IMO

      Ok I’m just going to just ignore the most pressing issue facing our nation today (very similar to the way Trump has just ignored covid19)… So let’s pretend for a minute we don’t have almost 200,000 Americans now dead as a result of that little issue because hey it just “is what it is”. Responding to the most serious public health crisis our nation has experienced in over 100 years by labeling it a “political hoax” entirely fabricated to damage his own political future was almost certainly the most responsible thing Trump could have done to address this little problem, right?

      Let’s instead begin with what I will call “Exhibit #1” for the purposes of my response to your first inqury: THE ABSURDLY INAPPROPRIATE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN OUR REALITY TV POTUS & VLADIMIR PUTIN!!!!!!!

      While I could go on extensively in response to just your initial inquiry, I will close my case right here because too many books have already been written about this specific topic from authors that include former members of Trump’s own national security leadership team.

      Let’s move on to your second inqury… This right here is just a trick question because Donnie the Douche Trump poses such an existential threat to everything the United States of America stands for that there is simply no other reason necessary to vote Putin’s little bitch out of office this November!

      Do the right thing gentlemen… Vote to save America from the whiny, feminine, orange makeup wearing soviet stooge this November!

        I’m glad you partake in the recreational marijuana but I caution you. It can cause schizophrenia in 30% of the population. No cure for schizophrenia exists so it looks like you are out of luck.

    obviously S.H. Blannelberry is using a pen name … Shit Head Blannelberry? Or it is entirely possible that he / she / some mix of the two … is a staunch Democrat, who maybe hopes that sleepy joe will sniff him/her/it. First, “Trump, who is still trailing in the polls ….” After your obvious choice in 2016 ‘winning every state in all the national polls’ You still believe in the polls? (LOL moment) Okay lets add a ROFL too. Second, “First, do you trust weak-kneed Republicans to do the right thing, especially when the going gets tough, say for example, in the wake of a national tragedy?” You still believe that covid / flu .. is actually the reason behind the panic? Not only are you using a pen name to hide your ignorance, and a staunch Democrat …. but you rate in the unbelievably stupid category as well. covid is real … so was the swine flu, as was the bird flu. Though the origin and timing is suspect …. the dempanic … sorry … ‘pandemic’ status, the death counts, (which just so happen to include, people who died of motorcycle accident injuries, (who just so happened to be possibly tested positive for covid.) I have not been ill, and have revised my living will, to declare, that upon my death, I can not be tested for covid … to prevent my demise from being politicized. The scare is planned, a plandemic, or dempanic …. a real virus, used to scare people to not live their lives, to obey the government, and to not vote … or vote by mail, so that the democratic left can replace your votes with their pre filled out mail in ballots … guaranteeing a win by the left, to further destroy America. Personally S.H. Blannelberry …. I would be ashamed to write an article like the one posted above. And yet that may be the reason you quickly created the pen name Shit Head Blannelberry.

    @ Scott

    If you believe that ever having another “reality TV actor” (regardless of which side of the partisan aisle they come from) serve as future POTUS is a good idea, I have one question for you… Why do you hate America?

  • Ricky B. August 28, 2020, 11:35 am

    @ Jaque

    Congratulations comrade! Nobody’s online rhetoric has been more successful in turning young Kyle Rittenhouse into a 17 year old serial killer than you… Putin’s almost certain to give you a promotion over at the Kremlin’s “Internet Research Agency” now, right? You’re a shoe-in to win the Russian Troll of the Month award, my friend!!!

    • Delco September 6, 2020, 2:05 pm

      Rick you Obviously have lived a sheltered life. The Putin Trump narrative is as shallow and non existent as the BLM agenda. Biden/Harris can not begin to explain any of their policies, because there are no policies, only liberal fairy tales that would punish Hardworking Americans and reward lazy anti American liberals who have no clue what it takes to build a company, or live as responsible adults. Biden has lived off the tax payers for decades, all along making side deals that directed millions to his friends and family. Harris slept with a married man (brown) in return for him to make her DA, then AG. Rick all you do in regurgitate the BS that comes 24/7 from proven frauds like lemon, and cuomo. Results say it all. Biden has done what exactly in 50 years besides becoming a millionaire along with his moron son. 20 plus million illegals , sanctuary cities, Free HC, having Beto the bozo get involved with taking our 2A rights , these are only a few things Biden will absolutely do. The fact you are OK with absolute silence from Biden for 90 days while cities burned, businesses destroyed, cops attacked, people killed, all because Biden and the left are told those who are wrecking our cities will somehow help them win an election, says it all. Try to accept facts Rick, and not twirling your hair while saying Trump is yucky . Harris in April said she absolutely believed the 20 women who said Biden sexually harassed them, so what now she believes what? Those women are all FOS? What values, I guess coming from a VP candidate who slept her way to the top with a married man can’t be expected to have real standards. If you hate Trump fine, but by voting for Biden, you are hating your country much more Rick.

  • Scott August 28, 2020, 10:07 am

    Do you even listen to yourself?

    But since you are keen to tinker with the constitution, how about along with your “reality tv ban” we include “anyone who has ever publicly or privately spoken against the constitution”. I mean one bans your Orangeman Bad but the other actually outlaws you and your entire clan of hate filled, racist, anti American, communist, Karens.

  • deanbob August 28, 2020, 10:07 am

    We all know that Uncle Sniffy will be nothing more than a figurehead taking direction/orders from Harris, AOC and Bernie and will push more Neo Marxism aka BLM (whose leaders describe themselves as Marxist trained Marxists on their own website).

    Can anyone really believe that the virtual simultaneous protests, bail bond fund and free lawyers was anything but an extremely well prepared, well funded Marxist cultural revolution just waiting for the right trigger? I guess ostriches will not believe it!

    @Ricky, change your tampon. Your TDS is quite pathetic!

  • Jaque August 27, 2020, 7:55 pm

    Biden and his comrads being the dedicated Marxists they are will not succeed in their plan to turn millions of law abiding American gun owners into Felons overnight. If only 10% revolt it will make the BLM insurgency look like boy scouts with Biden and his Camal girl running for their lives

    The Revolutionary War was started under similar circumstances by tyrants. It may be repeated.

    I wonder if the Ammunition makers were given secret orders by the DOJ to slow the production of ammunition for civilian sales to a trickle to limit the effectiveness of gun owners who choose revolt over surrender.

  • Ricky B. August 27, 2020, 4:24 pm

    Donald Trump is a greater threat to our own national security than any threat to our 2nd Amendment rights that any liberal politician may legitimately pose in the US right now. This unfortunate fact is the reason that an unprecedented number of Republicans are publicly endorsing the Democratic candidate this year.

    The GOP has to do some serious soul searching moving forward… I would actually love to see an amendment to the US Constitution that prohibits anyone who has ever been employed as a reality TV actor from serving as POTUS again! How is that not the type common sense measure that would actually receive bipartisan support? I think that would be just as useful as Congressional term limits, but Congress would never seriously consider placing that kind of restraint on itself… I think Congress could actually be forced to consider a “reality TV POTUS” prohibition though, let’s do it y’all!!!

    • Delco September 6, 2020, 2:33 pm

      Ricky all of those participation trophies have given you a false sense of accomplishment. What do you know about national security? What you heard spit out by Adam schiff? Waisting our time saying TV stars can’t be POTUS. But your fine with millions of illegals invading our country ? What priorities Ricky. Your the same type of clown that thinks Kyle rittenhouse is a murderer. I guess when you fall while being chased then hit with a skateboard, and having a convicted criminal point a gun at you in your mind doesn’t justify defending yourself. If KR was killed instead of doing the absolute correct thing, you and your anti American antifa lovers would be cheering KRs death like the rest of the deaths that BLM/Antifa are directly responsible for. I guess when you have 75% of the Biden/ Harris staff directing funds for the bail of known felons, who the left believes is there voting base, I guess that could influence your dignity, pride , patriotism. Ricky you have been lost. You have no sense of service , or loyalty to the Americans who gave all so that the basic structure of our country can continue to provide opportunity for us all. No one is oppressed, you can get out and do anything you want. The left, pushed Russia, for years. Turned out to be the opposite of what they screamed. Then is was attacking trump for preventing anyone from China from entering the US. Trump was criticized by Biden for being anti China. Now the left is screaming racist, and oppression. Get real. We have M. Obama saying how bad racism is, then why did the Obamas move into an all white neighborhood? Why didn’t they move to Compton, or Chester pa? Hollywood Easy to spread false oppression claims from gated communities. Let’s see those frauds move to the neighborhoods of the people they claim to support. And like them Ricky, you are marinated in false narratives that are put out by the left media to make them seem relevant at the expense of our country.
