You Need to Understand How Biden's Jihad Against Gun Rights Is Being Fought

President Joe Biden is the most anti-gun president we've had in office in my lifetime. While Obama might have wanted gun control, he did very little to make it happen. Clinton passed the assault weapon ban, sure, but from there, little else happened.


Biden, however, wants that and oh-so-much more.

In fact, it's like he's declared a holy war against the right to keep and bear arms. 

While part of that is the overt gun control actions, there's another aspect that is going on here that most people are unaware of.

That's where the real battle takes place.

As NSSF's Mark Olivia explains at The Truth About Guns:

He targets “rogue” gun dealers, when even his own Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) officials published data showing they’re not the problem. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ Volume Three of the National Firearms Commerce and Trafficking Assessment show just 0.1 percent of all federal firearms licensees were implicated in allegedly illegal firearm trafficking between 2017 and 2021.

President Biden’s Commerce Department published a punishing Interim Final Rule through the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) and slapped on new firearm export restrictions that have the intent of hobbling U.S. firearm manufacturers and exporters. The administration grasped at straws to justify it for national security reasons but it also belies ATF data. The ATF’s National Firearm Commerce and Trafficking Assessment shows less than one percent of legally exported firearms are ever traced in connection with a crime taking place in a foreign country.


The goal is to overturn the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), the law that prohibits frivolous lawsuits against the firearm industry for the harm caused by remote third parties. To more easily understand that, “remote third parties” is legal-speak for criminals. Feinblatt, President Biden and the Congressional gun control cabal want to return to the days of the late 1990’s and early 2000’s when unscrupulous trial lawyers in shiny suits in concert with gun control groups paraded a series of failing lawsuits to drain firearm manufacturers of funds with claims that were never successful.

That wasn’t the point, though. Disgraced former New York Gov. Anderw Cuomo served as the Housing and Urban Development Secretary under President Bill Clinton and infamously threatened the firearm industry with “death by a thousand cuts.” The objective was to bring the industry to its knees and force through court-ordered settlements gun control measures rejected by Congress or ratchet up the cost of litigation and shutter the industry through bankruptcy. Nothing changed.


Olivia also points out the role the White House played in working with Everytown on the recent lawsuit filed against Glock because they haven't redesigned one of the most reliable firearms on the planet to not accept an illegal aftermarket accessory.

While things like assault weapon bans are overt, the attack on gun manufacturers and gun dealers is more subtle.

See, they're trying to argue that the gun makers have unprecedented protections that shield them from liability, figuring that most Americans think they can't be sued for anything when that's not remotely true. They can't be sued because of what a third party did with the guns they made. That's it. If their guns are flawed and cause problems, those lawsuits can proceed.

They push this idea of "rogue" gun dealers because that concept scares people, but who are they really going after? As Olivia notes, the ATF's own data shows that 0.1 percent of gun dealers are implicated in shady dealings. That means 99.9 are upstanding businesses trying to follow the rules.

What Biden actually means is people who make clerical errors from time to time, which can happen to anyone. The ATF is stripping licenses from these dealers over mistakes, not illegal gun sales.

The idea here is very simple. Gun manufacturers and dealers either play ball with the administration or else. This cuts Congress out of the discussion and effectively creates gun control in such a way that the Supreme Court will have difficulty overturning it.


After all, if you can't buy guns because there's no one willing to sell you one, who needs to curtail your right to own one?
