Everytown’s Executive Action Wishlist for the Biden-Harris Administration

The gun prohibitionists lobby wants President Biden and Vice President Harris to foist gun control on the American people via executive fiat.

On Thursday, the Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety referenced its “overview” of what the administration can do now to infringe on one’s right to keep and bear arms.  

The full document is embedded below but the three “key actions” Everytown is pushing this week are as follows (per their language):

  • Expanding our background check laws to clearly cover more gun sellers: The law as it’s written says you must get a federal gun dealer license and conduct background checks if you are “in the business” of selling firearms, but the term is vaguely defined, meaning that right now, people selling multiple guns per year are not taking those steps and are selling their guns without a background check. An executive action could clarify that the term “in the business” should presumptively apply to anyone offering five or more firearms a year, thus limiting the number of gun sales that take place with no background check and no questions asked. 
  • Eliminating the market for deadly, untraceable ghost guns: Ghost guns are do-it-yourself, homemade guns with parts that can be purchased without a background check or a serial number –– and they have emerged as a weapon of choice for violent criminals, gun traffickers, dangerous extremists, and, generally, people legally prohibited from buying firearms. Fortunately, the Biden-Harris administration can shut down the no-questions-asked marketplace for ghost gun parts and kits by directing the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to ensure our gun laws cover all firearms, including the core parts and kits used to build untraceable ghost guns. If the administration does so, companies engaged in the business of selling these parts and kits would need to get a federal license, put serial numbers on the products, and conduct background checks on buyers –– the same process as for those who are engaged in the business of selling any other firearms. 
  • Dramatically increasing funding to combat skyrocketing city gun violence: City gun violence has intensified throughout the pandemic, with a sharp spike in homicides and nonfatal shootings — violence often concentrated within underserved neighborhoods and among small social networks. The administration can address this by unlocking hundreds of millions of dollars for evidence-informed community-based violence intervention programs through the American Rescue Plan and existing grant programs run by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, the Office for Victims of Crime, and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

    Here Is Exactly What/Is Happening Currently In Congress And Supreme Court:

    The US Supreme Court Is In The Process Of Changing The 4th Amendment To PERMIT Any Federal, State, Or Local Officers The Right/Ability To Enter ANY Property, Home, or Business WITHOUT A Warrant Or Court Order And Seize Any Property That May Be Deemed As Contradictory To Public Safety…

    In A Nut Shell They Will Have The Right To Seize Any Weapon And/Or Accessory (Yes Including Bullets),
    For General Public Safety !!!

      If that should come to pass then what Law Enforcement entity would be willing to “kick down the door”? There are numerous recent cases where search warrants were issued and now local Police are facing law suites and even criminal charges. I believe one case involves a woman (Brionna Taylor?) was killed in a gun fire exchange between her male friend (drug dealer) and the Police. The woman is dead, the drug dealer is hoping for a payout and the PO’s are facing jailtime for serving a knock less warrant. The politicians quickly turn on the PO’s and the courts straddle the fence.

      Still, I believe what you are saying is true because leftism has taken over our society is breaking down and very little makes sense any more.

      The plan probably would mean that only Whites can be targeted with warrant less entries since Whites can be the target of so much racism with little or no consequences. Whites are labelled and held collectively guilty by the supposed non racists like Meany Harris the niece of the illegitimate VP. No power there and no racism possible.

      I believe Randy Weaver got some sort of settlement but did anyone go to jail in that case or Waco?

      Bottom line, gear up lefties and cross the threshold yourselves.
