Everytown: Biden & Harris Will Be ‘Strongest Gun Safety Administration’ Ever

(Photo: Everytown/Facebook)

Assuming the “results” of the election hold and Joe Biden is sworn in as president on Jan. 20, 2021, Everytown for Gun Safety believes that we are headed for a new dawn on the gun-control front.

In a press release dated Nov. 7, 2020, the organization called Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris, the “Strongest Gun Safety Administration in American History.”

Everytown expects that the two will get to work in short order pushing a variety of anti-gun bills, including criminalizing private sales and transfers, enacting confiscatory red flag laws, prohibiting the sale of unfinished gun parts (80% lowers), banning black rifles and magazines with a capacity greater than 10 rounds, and repealing legislation that prevents gun makers from being sued for the criminal misuse of their products.  

“Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are the strongest gun safety ticket in American history, and so their victory is the strongest proof yet that gun safety is a winning issue,” said John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety. 

“Everytown is incredibly proud to count President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris as longtime allies, and we will do everything in our power to help them enact the common-sense gun policies the American people are demanding,” he continued.

Everytown, via the help of its chief benefactor, failed 2020 presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg, spent millions of dollars to oust Trump.  Much of it was in the form of digital attack ads.

Along with the mutli-million-dollar ad buy, the organization leveraged the help of its grassroots arms Moms Demand Action and Students Demand Action.  Activists for both groups made 3.7 million calls and texts to voters this election cycle.  And Students Demand Action claims to have registered over 100,000 young voters nationwide.  

“Our grassroots army of volunteers worked day-in and day-out for months to elect the strongest gun safety ticket in history,” said Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action. 

“President-elect Biden has taken on the NRA and won — twice — and now, we can’t wait to see President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris continue their legacies of standing up to the NRA and keeping American families safe — this time from the White House,” she added. 

Reports indicate that the GOP will retain control of the Senate by the narrowest of margins, which means that any new gun-control proposal will likely face an uphill battle to becoming law.  Still, that doesn’t mean that Biden and Harris can’t make life miserable for gun owners.

We can expect the duo to pull out all the stops and put the squeeze on the 2A community through executive action and weaponizing the ATF.  In fact, when she was running for the Democratic nomination for president, Harris vowed to circumvent Congress to do just that

“If by my 100th day in office when elected president of the United States, the United States Congress fails to put a bill on my desk to sign with all of the good ideas or any of the good ideas that I’m prepared to take executive action because that’s what’s needed,” Harris told CNN Sunday back in May of 2019.  

Harris believed she could to all of the following without the consent of Congress: institute universal background checks, revoke the licenses of firearms dealers who break the law, close the so-called “boyfriend loophole,” prohibit people with arrest warrants from buying guns, and ban the importation of so-called “assault weapons.”

January 20th is only a couple of months away.  Looks like gun owners need to brace for impact.

    The “boyfriend loophole,” must be where drugs are delivered to a girlfriends house and legal search warrants become invalid and the “boyfriend” is granted free fire zone with the Police. The Demsheviks would never oppose this “loophole.”

    But, but, but, Trump and NRA took away my bump stock! I’ll show him, I’m voting for Biden and common sense gun reform! (SAID NO AR-15 GUN OWNER EVER).

    IF you can afford it, send money to Trump’s legal defense fund. https://www.donaldjtrump.com/
    Because if Biden is inaugurated he plans to outlaw guns. Yes, he says he supports the second amendment. He also said that all 9mm pistols should be outlawed and confiscated. He said all “assault weapons” should be illegal and confiscated. He said he would put “Hell yes, I’m gonna come get your guns.” Bozo Beto O’Rourke in control of his gun control program. He supports the United Nations Small Arms Treaty which would allow U.N. soldiers to confiscate your guns. That treaty says the U.N. can confiscate ‘illegal firearms’ which it defines as any gun owned by civilians, only military and police are ‘legally’ able to own guns according to that treaty. I could go on but I think you get the picture. Trump becomes president or your guns become contraband.

  • You triggered? November 13, 2020, 1:41 pm

    I’m really sick of all the Trumpturds and their Q theories. Have any of you read or watched anything beyond conservative reporting sites?

    How the hell do you think the president elect is going to somehow over turn the 2nd amendment when the Supreme Court is stacked conservative, the Senate is about be Republican balanced. Even if he tried to write executive orders they would be tossed.

    The new administration will be lucky to get any new legislation to pass over the next four years. They are basically lame ducking their term.

      Your obvious ignorance of past attempts by these people, as well as their own words both publicly and in private fund raising events, indicates you haven’t a clue as to the subject at hand.
      All you have are insults, driven by your T.D.S.
      So, what ya gonna do when Trump is gone? Where ya gonna direct your hate then?
      What a pathetic hate filled life you must lead.

    • Autonomous1 November 14, 2020, 11:38 am

      They come with open arms in the name of SAFTEY. Sure, if you believe that.

  • Stephen November 13, 2020, 12:09 pm

    I wouldn’t trust these two bastards with hot coffee, let alone my gun rights!

  • Alchemist November 13, 2020, 10:22 am

    Naaaaa they’ll just hammer it with so many laws, it becomes meaningless. Gotta love “Gun Safety.” Means no more guns so the pussies feel “safe.”

  • RJ November 13, 2020, 9:46 am

    Obviously the fools that voted for Biden because of his anti-gun stance don’t realize that the second amendment is the safeguard that protects all the other amendments. Since history is no longer taught in our schools, check out the fact that whenever a dictator takes over a country, they always remove firearms from the citizens. Perhaps that is the plan that the democrats/socialist have in store for us.

    • Jim GARNER November 14, 2020, 12:16 am

      They will have to kill me to steel my guns from me!! I am so damned second Ammendment that when I reach in my pocket for change, I come out with 9mm, 40 cal, 44.mag, 223, 270, 762, and several 12 ga 16 ga and a wad or 22 cal in my hand!!!

  • al November 13, 2020, 9:19 am

  • AK November 13, 2020, 9:11 am

    Actually they campaigned on health care and peripheral issues. They didn’t dare talk gun control. That speaks volumes.

  • Steven November 13, 2020, 9:09 am

    So will the gun & ammunition manufacturers.

  • David Boerboom November 13, 2020, 8:59 am

    Grass roots network has been busy? Yeah, preparing all of their stolen ballots.

I GUESS THOSE KIDS DON’T MATTER TO THEM OR HEY WHAT ABOUT ADDRESSING SOMETHING THAT HAS KILLED 3 X AS MANY PEOPLE THEN GUNS, LETS TALK ABOUT ABORTION,WHEN DO YOU ALL START CARING ABOUT THOSE CHILDREN?

      James you took the words right out of my mouth. I here the 2nd amendment folks talking about “from my cold dead hands” but to those that have never been to war you can’t imagine the anxiety that goes on. Heck I am having PTSD just thinking about a war. The folks that have spawned since the 60’s, Angela Davis, Bill Ayers etc. have been dumbing our kids and grand kids down so much that they think they have a righteous cause to stand for, not to mention lots of testosterone. I am an old man now with little time left and when I was young and ignorant I believed what the leaders of our great country were telling me while all along they had been lying to me. I still love my country, it is just the SOB’s that we are supposed to have under check that drive me
      BSC . So for this old man I suppose I will give it another go. I just can’t imagine lying on a dirt floor with out my wife in one of those Gulags or Re-education camps or submitting to Communism. God have mercy on us.

  • Leigh November 13, 2020, 6:45 am

    Safety? They men banning and regulating and confiscating…
    Safety would include free gun training classes…school classes…free gun safes for homes…

  • A. HITLER November 13, 2020, 5:33 am

    F pedo joe and his commie ho !

  • Scott McIntosh November 13, 2020, 3:30 am

    They want a Civil War we will give them one.

    • Duncan MCNEIL November 13, 2020, 7:30 am

      You can ALWAYS depend on Democrats to overreach, crash and burn. They just can’t restrain those impulses to put a boot on the neck of anyone that disagrees with them. Let them choose the way of pain. If SLOW JOE AND HIS HO attempt to confiscate, it won’t be troops or FBI or ATF that come for the weapons. That job will fall to local PDs and Sheriffs.
      If these corrupt, hate-filled trolls actually take the office, they’ll hit the ground running to crush all resistance to their agenda. I think it’s past time to go and have a chat with the LEOs in our cities. They need to understand how DEADLY SERIOUS this issue will be for them. They’ll have a single chance to choose whether to keep their oath to the Constitution or to become a camp guard.

  • Taxx73 November 11, 2020, 3:26 pm

    They haven’t been elected yet! The only way they could be is through massive voter fraud! Don’t trust the mainstream media and their Democrat masters! The theft is so blatant that it’s insulting. I don’t care what these 2 Muppets do I will NOT comply with their socialist regime and will fight to protect me and mine from ALL enemies foreign or DOMESTIC! Criminals don’t follow laws just ask any Democrat involved in this dumpster fire that they are calling an election.
    TRUMP 2020!
    Remember if you come for mine you better bring yours!!
    LEAVE OUR RIGHTS ALONE!!!

    • Scott McIntosh November 13, 2020, 3:32 am

      I could not have said that any better. They can have all my firearms. Bullets first!

    • Jack November 13, 2020, 6:45 am

      The Supreme Court is going to be very busy with these two and there wish list.
