NSSF: Biden Declares He Is The Democratic Party, This Is Their Gun Ban Plan

By Larry Keane

Former Vice President Joe Biden is the captain now.

“The party is me,” Biden said during the presidential debate. “Right now, I am the Democratic Party. I am the Democratic Party right now.”

The debate didn’t touch on gun control. Amidst the arguing and speaking over one another, the candidates touched on Supreme Court nominees, law enforcement, riots and looting. The topic of gun rights or gun control wasn’t addressed. The former vice president, though, told the American public exactly where he is on gun control when he uttered that phrase. He wants more of it. Lots more.

The Democratic Party adopted the Biden-Harris platform at their convention earlier this year that laid out their plans to enact unprecedented gun control. It’s a ban plan, an elimination plan and watchlist plan that will strip law-abiding Americans of their God-given rights and do nothing to address crime reduction.

Ban Plan

“Democrats will ban the manufacture and sale of assault weapons and high capacity magazines,” their plan reads. The party maligns the modern sporting rifle by attempting to equate it with an automatic firearm used by the military. What they want to ban are semiautomatic firearms simply over cosmetic features and make technology that is more than 100 years old illegal. They would ban the manufacture and sale the most popular-selling centerfire rifle on the market today.

Elimination Plan

The Biden-Harris plan would eliminate “online sales of guns and ammunition” denying Americans the ability to shop online and purchase firearms, which can only be transferred by the retailer to the customer in a face-to-face transaction after a mandatory FBI background check. That background check, too, would be required for every transfer of a firearm. Biden’s plan would criminalize private firearm transfers, whether that be a sale, a father handing a shotgun down to his child, sisters lending their handgun to one another or lifelong friends swapping guns as collectibles. That right would be eliminated, and worse, criminalized.

Watchlist Plan

That’s not all Biden wants. His plan to enact universal background checks would create registries that would put innocent Americans on government watchlists. That’s regulation that is barred by federal law, but they’ve got a plan for that. He would force states to create a licensing scheme for firearm ownership and Americans would be forced to pay a fee to exercise a right. Illinois gives insight to the calamity that awaits. Illinois has among the strictest gun control laws, but the Firearms Owner Identification (FOID) Card system is a train wreck. The state has a backlog of more than three months and more than 135,000 applications to process a card to allow citizens to exercise their rights.

Biden proposes to go further and mandate how a firearm is stored in the home. Biden disregards the U.S. Supreme Court struck such a requirement in the landmark 2008 Heller decision. The opinion written by the late Justice Antonin Scalia did more than affirm the Second Amendment is an individual right. That decision also struck down the District of Columbia’s law that a firearm must be kept in the home with a trigger lock as unconstitutional.

This is the ship that Biden is piloting. The ship has no rudder. U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said the party would drift further left if Biden is elected. Biden is putting his party on a collision course with the Constitution, the Supreme Court and voters. Biden is the captain now.

    Efff Biden!! Trump 2020!!

    Anyone who votes for Biden should have to live in a sanctuary city, with no police and no firearms. Anyone voting for Biden should have to invite large gatherings for BLM and antifa into the main parts of their communities, and then not receive a dollar after they leave for the destruction left behind. Maybe CNN and MSDNC can come report on the destruction that they claim doesn’t happen. Time to be honest . Time to have term limits and not allow billionaires like soros to financially control the outcomes of elections in communities they have no interest in living . A vote for Biden in as Anti American as you can get.

    Hey Butch. Nothing screems stolen valor louder than a alleged veteran saying we need comprehensive gun control. If you were a vet thanks for your service. However a vet should understand that your main duty would be to defend Americans and our constitutional rights. Our gun rights are being destroyed by anti gun ani constitution liberals like you. Guns america is not a place for you. Your sorry ass point of view is not welcome amongst patriots.

  • Butch October 2, 2020, 1:02 pm

    Come on guys, lay off the cross hairs and the captain should go down with the ship talk. This is the twenty first century and we all should act like human beings, with the exception of trump, he’s just a fuckin moron. We need to have comprehensive gun control and we certainly don’t need rapid fire weapons. Something has to be done to prevent the killing of our kids and innocent people. We need to dump trump and bring this great country together again and pay closer attention to our people that have mental issues and need help. And we have to get rid of racial hate, it alone is tearing this country apart. This is from a very concerned Veteran.

      And Biden is our savior 🤣

    • Patrick Brennan October 2, 2020, 8:11 pm

      @ Butch I do not know what branch of the service you served in but you are clueless about firearms. Who do you know that has a rapid fire weapon. Not me or you or most citizens. Are you just repeating what Mike Bloomberg said in a interview with ABC several years back .If you watched and knew anything about firearms you could clearly hear that he didn’t. Bloomberg spends a lot of money each year brain washing sheep like you. You believe all the myths that they spread. If you served in the military you would know the difference between an AR15 and a M16.

      Speak for yourself. Your opinion is your own and you have the right to say whatever you want. Yippee skippee. Comprehensive gun control isn’t. Any restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms violates the Constitution. That right there is a big fricken deal. Keep your filthy hands off my guns. No, I’m not going to give them to anyone who thinks they have the moral right to take them. I’m sick and tired of you sanctimonious gun grabbers trying to justify your gun ownership position. More people are killed in vehicles than are killed by a person with a weapon. Will you then take away our cars/trucks/motorcycles? I highly doubt that. Until such time that everyone in the world swears off hurting/killing their fellow man, then gun ownership is off the table for discussion.
      Have a nice day. SFMF.

      Butch you are a big mess. You obviously do not base your opinions on facts or results. Comprehensive Gun control? You definitely have never purchased a Gun. Everyone has to have a background check when buying a Gun. And rapid fire weapons butch? Again you are naive and ignorant. Explain that please smart guy. If Biden/ Harris were to get power, those caravans we had with thousands of illegals each week would once again be invading our country. NAFTA would still be sending our jobs away. USMCA butch , yeah Trump did that smart guy. Mexico putting 25 thousand Mexican troops along the border , trump did that. Rebuilding our military, after Obama/ Biden did nothing while China built a new high tech military base in the pacific. You might not like Trumps personality, I get that but you’re not going on a date with the guy. Our president needs to be someone who gets results for AMERICAN CITIZENS butch. Obama/ Biden for 8 years went on about North Korea and how dangerous they were. Obama/ Biden sent how many career politicians around the world to stop NK. And Zero results. Trump himself went face to face with NK leader and didn’t make things perfect because NK will never be trusted, but Trump has Made NK an after thought. Butch results count. Biden is in the pocket of BLM. Harris is possibly the most disgusting anti American person to ever be considered for office. Get a clue butch.

      🙄So you want a man with onset dementia as Pres.?😝 You want someone so corrupt who’s son Hunter made millions from China and Russia just because he could be the conduit for those countries to get access to the then VP Biden? You do know that both Joe and Hunter are under criminal investigation…right?😆🤣

    • Ralph Cramden October 5, 2020, 11:15 am

      🤨Racial hate? What do you think this is…the 20s 30s 40s 50s and 60s with Democrat placed Jim Crow laws and segregation? The KKK was founded by democrats. The Democrat party started by slave holders for slave holders. No bigger racist out their than Joe Biden. 😒Yep the same guy who spoke so highly of his mentor Robert Byrd the KKK grand wizard. Turn off the Fake News CNN.😁

    Here’s a warning from Illinois. My concealed carry expired October 1st. I started my renewal process 5 months prior. Twice their website crashed on me before they mailed me a paper application. Because they’re intentionally understaffed, no one answers their telephones, they just let it ring all day. They do not reply to emails. They have a DMV mentality combined with the speed of a hospice patients. According to the state police website, my application is still “under review.” But don’t worry, they took the time to take my $150 application fee.

    Haha… Love the picture of him at the top where it looks like cross hairs on his forehead! Just a little left and up a hair and all good;) Screw this feeble minded and bodied old fart! Nobody will ever take a thing for me unless I’m first WILLING to sell AND they meet the EXTRA EXTRA CRAZY HIGH price I’ll set on ANY part of gun I may have! Sad part is “grab ’em by their pu$$y” Trump is our best bet to not get bent over as much in regards to guns! But he’s still a TOTAL moron who out right lies to suit his needs and yet he’s still in office! Remember the good old days when the HUGE scandal was Clinton playing with a fat chick and cigars and getting a blowy! I dream for those days now! I can’t beloved we hav a dumb shit TV reality not even star as our PRESIDENT! AND WORSE HE IS OUR BEST CHOICE FOR THIE ELECTION! America has gone to th crapper in a hurry this last four years! Still zero plan from Trump regarding this as everyone calls it a pandemic when it’s really a plague as far as I’m concerned! How do we have a building full of solid good bars and the smartest people on earth and still nobody has a cure for this lame ass virus!

    • Drew October 4, 2020, 8:15 pm

      Slim you talk about the Clintons like they did a few harmless things. Slim the Clintons are the MOST CORRUPT people to EVER held office. To much to cover, but how about Hillary traveling the world on tax payer paid fuel as SOS, all the while not representing the United States but making sure the leaders of other countries new damm well they need to give millions to the Clinton foundation if they wanted access to Hillary’s White House. Over $300 million. Why did those donations by foreign leaders drop off 90% after crooked Clinton got smoked in the election? Why was Chelsea getting $750 K a year ? You can go on about the Trump family and their business, but the trumps were never receiving a weekly check by you an I for the last 30 years, all while running a personal foundation which only gave 10% to charity. And Biden last I heard since 1972 Biden has also been receiving a check from us the tax payers. Explain what business or product did Biden create, that has turned not only joe into a multi millionaire but his sister, brother, and son? Please slim name the company the Biden’s created? Biden is a career politician going through the motions, hoping enough dumbass Democrats hate Trump enough to ignore the results trump has produced that actually makes the United States a better place for its citizens and not illegals cultivated by democrats to transform our country into a socialist mess.

        Fake News refuses to mention that the Clinton’s are under criminal investigation.🙄😉

    • Ralph Cramden October 5, 2020, 11:05 am

      Well….sorry you feel that way…but just as long as you Vote Trump 2020!! MAGA!!!🤩😁😂😅😆😜

    Biden and his anti-gun followers are putting forth a plan which does nothing to keep weapons out of the hands of those who cannot pass a background check. Those people will still have their weapons and continue to sell and purchase on the black market and steal their weapons. His plan is the rantings of a thick headed and uneducated in the rules. regulations and laws of gun purchases/ownership. His plan only hurts the good guy, the average Joe he always refers to.

  • SJ October 2, 2020, 4:48 am

    “Biden is the captain now”…. And as the captain, he should go down with his ship…
