The White House has recently announced its support for a new gun control bill, the GOSAFE Act.

Stefanie Feldman, director of the Office of Gun Violence Prevention, affirmed the administration’s commitment.

“We support any effort to keep assault weapons and high-capacity magazines out of dangerous hands, as this bill would do,” Feldman stated, referencing President Biden’s longstanding advocacy for gun control since his tenure as a senator.

However, the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) criticized the bill, describing it as an overreach.

The NRA-ILA statement highlighted concerns over the bill’s extensive prohibitions and its potential impact on law-abiding gun owners.

“Senators Angus King and Martin Heinrich have joined a motley succession of extreme anti-gun legislators to introduce perhaps the most sweeping gun prohibition bill of the 21st Century,” the statement read.

The NRA-ILA criticized the bill for targeting law-abiding gun owners and not addressing the root causes of armed criminality.

The bill’s broad scope includes a ban on various firearms, targeting semiautomatic firearms as a class and imposing restrictions on magazine capacities.

It also grants the ATF authority to publish a list of permissible semiautomatic firearms for public sale and possession, a move that has drawn particular scrutiny from opponents.

Critics also argue that the bill’s provisions on semiautomatic handguns are vague and could lead to widespread bans on many popular self-defense handguns. Further, the legislation’s impact on firearm modifications, such as bump stocks and binary triggers, remains a contentious issue.

The debate also touches on the Second Amendment. The NRA-ILA argues that the bill violates constitutional rights, citing the Supreme Court’s emphasis on protecting arms “in common use” for lawful purposes.

The organization asserts that the bill deviates from America’s historical approach to arms regulation.

The bill, if passed, would allow current owners of newly banned firearms to retain them but restricts their transfer options.

It also proposes reallocating funds earmarked for law enforcement to encourage Americans to surrender their guns to the government.

It’s a terrible piece of legislation for the 2A community. Which is precisely why the Biden administration loves it.

    The Democrats are in stark terror of an armed populace retaliating against them for their blatant disregard for the Constitution and their march toward Communism in America. Our government is corrupt, politicians bought and paid for, and outside forces like the WEF, WHO and elite megalomaniacs like Bill Gates and George Soros must have full control over the people to force their goals upon them. Armed citizens of a free America will not stand for this and that’s why the gun grab is on. Xi, Obloejob and the above actors must be denied!

    “…as this bill [will] do.” So when IT DOESN’T, we can sue the central government after every gun crime. Got it.

    The whole communist party are committing treason, and to make it worse they are enlisting the aid of foreign governments to subvert the constitution and our way of life! The death penalty should be considered in their trials!!!!
