Biden’s America; Biden Says He Will ‘Defeat the NRA’ While in Office, and related stories

Biden’s America:
Well, here we go again. Once more, the fight is on to protect the Second Amendment. This issue will go to print before the litigation is finished, so this could certainly change, but as it stands, it seems as if Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be the next president and vice president of the United States. Once inaugurated, they will begin a concerted attack on the rights of American gun owners. We must be ready for the onslaught.
In spite of the dire predictions, the results of November’s election were incredibly close. In Arizona, Georgia and Pennsylvania, President Donald J. Trump and Joe Biden are (at the time of this writing) haggling over what is, in the grand scheme of things, a mere handful of votes. As it stands, the U.S. Senate is currently 50-48 in the Republicans’ favor, with two runoffs to be held in Georgia in January. And in the U.S. House of Representatives, the Democrats will enjoy the slimmest House majority in 20 years-and the slimmest Democrat House majority since WWII. This is going to matter insofar as it helps to stall the most-radical ideas the Democrat Party has been promising. But it is not going to dissuade it from trying. Within hours of the press calling the race, Joe Biden was claiming a “mandate” for change. That “change” will undoubtedly include a big attempt to limit the right to keep and bear arms.
It is worth reiterating just how radical the Biden-Harris gun-control agenda is. If they get their way, they will ban and confiscate the most-commonly owned rifle in the United States; they will prohibit the magazines that come as standard in almost every newly purchased semi-automatic firearm; they will use the federal government to regulate intrastate private transfers (or even loans); they will open up the courts to frivolous suits with the hope that they might achieve, through “lawfare,” what they cannot through legislation; they will arbitrarily limit the number of guns that can be bought per month; they will ban the online sale of ammunition and firearm parts and accessories; they will declare Americans who are unable to manage their finances to be “mentally ill” and thus barred from owning guns; and, eventually, they will move toward the mandatory adoption of a “smart-gun” technology that does not, in fact, exist. There is a reason that, as election day neared, Biden and Harris both did not talk about gun-control: They were aware that it had the potential to cost them the election. --->READ MORE HERE

Biden Says He Will ‘Defeat the NRA’ While in Office:
President-elect Joe Biden on Jan. 8 promised to “defeat” the National Rifle Association while he’s in office.
Biden’s official Twitter account was responding to former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.), who was among 14 people wounded in a shooting rampage by Jared Lee Loughner in Tucson in 2011; six people died in the attack. Giffords had recounted how her life and community “changed forever.”
“But the attack did not break me—or the people I represented in Congress. We came together, turned pain into purpose, and found hope in each other,” she wrote, adding that she continues to work to “achieve a safer America.”
Biden responded, saying: “Your perseverance and immeasurable courage continue to inspire me and millions of others. I pledge to continue to work with you—and with survivors, families, and advocates across the country—to defeat the NRA and end our epidemic of gun violence.” --->READ MORE HERE
