Second Amendment Under Attack
President Joe Biden has no understanding of the meaning behind The Bill of Rights, as demonstrated by his recent statement, “no amendment is absolute.” So as criminal activity continues to rise throughout the nation, Biden has declared a war on the Second Amendment by making firearms without serial numbers illegal. Such weapons, termed “ghost guns,” make it difficult to trace back to a shooter and hold them accountable.
Except for five databases, including suspect guns, the Firearm Owners’ Protection Act of 1986 makes it illegal for the government to track firearms back to their owners. Despite this, the Biden Administration has recently expanded the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF)’s processing of gun-purchase transactions in order to achieve a record of nearly a billion traceable gun purchases.
Full-On Assault Against Law-Abiding Gun Owners
The extent of this overreach targets law-abiding gun owners and does not address “ghost guns” designed by criminals to avoid getting on the database. Giving into the severity of the issue, Biden announced a plan to fund police in order to provide them with the tools and training needed to protect the community. This is a waste of time, funding, and resources, considering that the National Guard has proven effective against ruthless criminal activity, as demonstrated by previous President Donald Trump’s response to unlawful Black Lives Matter protests.
