We all know that the 2020 Democratic field was the most anti-gun ever. While Joe Biden wasn’t the most anti-gun candidate in the field, he was close. Yet, during the general election, it seemed as though the media went out of their way to hide it. The topic never came up during the debates and the press failed to address the issue at all during their many opportunities.
So yeah, they hid it.
Now, the voting is over and the left has accepted that they won fair and square and that absolutely nothing will stop Joe Biden from taking office. On that last part, they might be right. They might not. Regardless, though, it also seems that now they’re not even trying to hide what we all knew.
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.
Of course, if Everytown was really that concerned with gun control and think that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are such great champions of “gun safety,” then why in the hell did so many of their ads fail to address anything related to firearms?
Seriously, Joe Biden’s stance on gun control was absent from the general election, and it wasn’t just the media that tried to hide it. Even gun control groups–backed by Michael Bloomberg–spent massive sums of money in an attempt to turn multiple states blue and to help get Biden elected, yet remarkably few of those ads ever mentioned gun control.
They knew that gun control wasn’t a winning issue in the general election, so they hid it as best they could. Now, they figure that paid off and they no longer have to play pretend. They’re not letting the mask slip, they flat-out ripped that sucker off and are making it clear that your guns will not be safe for the next four years.
No, they don’t care about how popular it may be. Not now, anyway. They already got people’s votes, even if some of those people were dead. Now, they’re going to tell you how it’s going to be.
