Presidential Hopeful Joe Biden’s Gun Control Plan

Presidential Hopeful Joe Biden: His Comprehensive Gun Control Plan

Joe Biden is going toe-to-toe with Donald Trump for the most powerful seat in the country. If he wins, how will that affect gun owners and your right to own a gun? If you're wondering about Biden's gun control plan, continue reading below.

The Comprehensive Biden Gun Control Plan

There has been a line drawn in the sand.

The “Republicans” are in favor of the 2nd Amendment and the unrestricted right to bear arms.

The “Democrats” are hell-bent on repealing the 2nd Amendment as an outdated and antiquated allowance for “muzzleloaders and muskets.”

But with so many divisive topics affecting voters’ decisions in 2020, where does Joe Biden stand on gun control specifically?

Joe Biden is the presumptive Democratic candidate for President, challenging Republican incumbent Donald Trump on November 3.

Biden has served as an elected official in Washington for over four decades.

He has been involved in numerous gun control efforts with varying degrees of success.

Now, in his bid for the Presidency, Biden is taking a strong stance on gun control.

He has an exhaustive list of all the ways he plans to curb ownership and increase fees associated with owning firearms.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, massive unemployment, interrupted supply chains, and civil unrest that 2020 has brought, firearm and ammunition sales have skyrocketed month after month in the U.S.

With nearly 40% of gun purchases being made by first-time buyers, a candidate’s gun control plan should be of special interest this election cycle and a primary factor in who to vote for.

Biden’s History of Gun Control Efforts

Joe Biden has consistently been in favor of increased gun control throughout his time in Washington.

In 1993, he helped to push through the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, which established the background check system that we still use today.

In 1994, Biden helped to secure the passage of a 10-year ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. [The Bush administration did not renew the ban when it expired.]

As Vice President to Barack Obama, Biden worked on executive actions that narrowed the “gun show loophole.”

He helped increase the number of records in the background check system and expanded funding for mental health services.

As a senator in 2005, Biden also voted against the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.

This act protects gun manufacturers from being held civilly liable for their products. [The act passed.]

Current Goals by a Biden Administration

Biden’s campaign team has put together a comprehensive and exhaustive explanation of every type of legislation he would pursue if he is to become President.

The list stretches on for many pages, addressing every aspect of gun ownership and the possibility of weapon removal from homes.

The highlights are:

  • Make gun manufacturers civilly liable for their products. [The never-ending legislation would put many out of business.]
  • Ban the manufacture, sale, and importation of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. This includes all variations of similar weapons.
  • Require that any and all existing machine-guns, silencers, and short-barreled rifles be registered with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), and their owners undergo a background check.
  • Create a government program that requires owners of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines to either sell the weapons to the government or register them under the National Firearms Act (NFA). [The NFA was enacted in 1934, and registering guns under it costs $200 as well as registration fees – for each weapon already owned. Violators of the NFA face 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.]
  • Create legislation that limits the number of firearms a person can purchase in one month to one.
  • Require background checks for all gun sales, with the only exception being gifts between close family members.
  • Disallow the ownership of guns by any person who does not manage their affairs for “mental reasons.”
  • Create legislation that bans a person “who has been convicted of a misdemeanor hate crime, or received an enhanced sentence for a misdemeanor because of hate or bias in its commission” from purchasing or possessing a firearm.
  • Pass the Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2019, which extends the time a background check can be approved, from three to 10 business days, delaying lawful purchases from occurring.
  • Enact legislation that any person facing an arrest warrant is prohibited from purchasing or possessing a firearm.
  • End the online sale of firearms and ammunition, including gun kits.
  • Create an aggressive program to ensure individuals who become prohibited from possessing firearms to relinquish their weapons.
  • Financially incentivize states to enact “red flag” laws that remove firearms from “an individual in crisis.”
  • Financially incentivize states to submit records of prohibited persons to the background checks' system.
  • Supports a future in which 100% of firearms in use are “smart guns.” [Smart guns require a fingerprint to operate.]
  • Supports legislation holding adults criminally and civilly liable for directly or negligently giving a minor access to a firearm, regardless of whether the minor actually gains possession of the firearm.
  • Has committed to passing legislation requiring firearm owners to store weapons safely in their homes.
  • Make “straw purchases” a serious federal crime.
  • Notify law enforcement when a potential firearms' purchaser fails a background check, requiring law enforcement to follow up and ensure prohibited persons do not attempt to acquire firearms through other means.
  • Require firearms owners to report if their weapon is lost or stolen.
  • Allot significant funding to the Justice Department to enforce our existing gun laws and increase the frequency of inspections of firearms dealers.
  • Prohibit the use of federal funds to arm or train educators to discharge firearms.

Voice Your Opinion at the Polls

Even those who are in favor of increased gun control will be turned off by Biden’s plan that discriminates against low-income and working-class communities.

Those with significant funds will still be able to fund their arsenals, while poor individuals will be shut out from owning firearms and protecting their families.

With little attention on handguns, Biden fails to address the majority of weapons used in daily shootings.

This election cycle may be one of the most important in history when it comes to the 2nd Amendment.

    Biden is out of touch with reality, those of you who are staunch democrats and own guns, should seriously rethink their vote this Nov, Biden is a cancer for the 2nd amendment and what it stands for!!!!

    1. Robert L moore says:

      No Joe!
      He is unfit, due to his loss of cognitive ability. He is doing the same dance, that he learned years ago.
      His day, was 20 + years ago, but not now.

  2. James OGrady says:

    Joe Biden is a cheat and a liar. He repeated third grade. placed 76 out of 85 students in law school and was convicted of plagiarism in his freshman year. This country will be rated as a third world country if he and Kamala Harris are elected. How she identifies as an african american is completely wrong. Her mother was born in India and her father was born in Jamaica.

  3. Mike says:

    When one amendment is changed someone will come along to change all the amendments to there own liking. America wont be America any more.

    1. robert L moore says:

      No changes! No problem!
      No Joe, No problem!!

  4. Brian says:

    I will never ever give up my guns no matter what smuck tries to do in the white house. Like the shirt says when guns are outlawed ill be an outlaw. Those words are true. I wander what would Joe Biden do if a gunman broke in his house , tied them up, raped his daughter and wife before stabbing them to death, and before shooting him in the head knowing if he had a few guns in the house he might of saved them. Ass Hole!!!

    1. Ken says:

      Shit ,he has armed guards to protect his family. He don’t need a gun! The elite will always have armed protection. It’s the common family that are left defenseless!

    2. Ken says:

      He has armed guards to protect his family. He don’t need a gun! The elite will always have armed protection. It’s the common family that are left defenseless!

  5. William Scroggin says:

    Wake up Democrats,if you hunt or own a firearm to protect you and your family you should not vote for Joe Biden! He wants to defund the police ,so you might need that firearm to keep the socialists from burning your house down or to protect your family and your property,,or to hunt for food to feedyour family when the socialists do not give you enough food to feed them ! Wake up Democrats,!!!!

  6. Jeffrey Sinclair says:

    Biden is playing to his base; this is a fund raising gimmick. Those who would vote for Biden will do so irrespective of his positions on anything. His lame brained gun positions will only bring conservatives out in greater force and encourage more of them to contribute to Republican candidates at every level.

  7. steve says:

    As the true meaning of the name BIDEN stands for: Biggest Idiot Democrats Ever Nominated should be his slogan.

  9. jim says:

    anyone enters my house to take my guns,they will leave in a body bag! Biden and his voters should realize that there are hundreds of thousands if not millions feel the same as i do.Biden will force us law abiding citizens to support the second amendment!

    1. Sabatino Nuzzi III says:

      I got your 6 Jim. I say to Kaaamala, you want my guns then you be the first through my door!! Oh and bring Bozo Beto with you!!
      I too am one of the millions of Patriotic Conservatives who feel the same way as you do. We pay for for armed guards that protect the creeps who want to take away our means to protect ourselves and family!!! NOT GONNA HAPPEN WITHOUT A SERIOUS FIGHT!!!!

  10. Harris Channell says:

    In the 40 + years he has been in politics just what has he done 0. Any questions. As far as gun control we have a constitionaly guareented right to bear arms because of tyrants like him.

  11. Jim Thompson says:

    I’m not or ever will be a Democrat. I believe that is my right as a peaceful citizen of the U.S of America to own and bear arms under or Constitution which are the foundation and cornerstone of this country. Joe Biden, his VP and the squad will see to our foundation dismantled if elected. Charlton Heston said it best about Al Gore “From my cold Dead Hands!!!!”

  12. Thomas says:

    Biden and his like is the reason the founders included the second amendment in our founding to preserve America the land of the free and home of the brave .

  13. Richard says:

    If slo Joe had a half a brain he would see genus being used like a wet rag. His policies are not his all he is is a figure head. He is so desperate to be president he would marry any one of the Mob just to accomplish that. Before the pandemic there was a estimated 90 million gun toting citizens no it must be in the millions. He needs to worry because soon slo Joe will be no more Joe.

  14. Richard says:

    Hundreds of millions sorry fat finders 😜🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸😀

  15. joseph saratore says:

  16. Sabatino says:

    OK These Commie creeps want to take law abiding citizens guns away under the guise that it will stop gun violence!
    ABSOLUTELY LAUGHABLE!!! FBI stats, Crimes committed by legal gun owners is next to nothing!!! I believe there was only 2 last year in the entire USA and one was domestic violence!!! Who the hell are they kidding!!! They want our guns as to completely have control over all of us,plain and simple!! As a matter a fact it is reported by the NRA that more crimes are stopped by the armed good citizen then by police!! Nothing against police but criminals tend not to commit crimes in front of uniform policemen!1 DUH! If they truly wanted to stop gun violence why not start with all the illegally armed gangs, just for starters! It goes back to the very old saying “IF YOU OUTLAW GUNS, ONLY OUTLAWS WILL HAVE GUNS” NO MATTER HOW MANY GUN LAWS THESE IDIOTS PUT INTO AFFECT THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A BLACK MARKET FOR CRIMINALS TO HAVE AND GET GUNS! That is where they get them now! criminals by there very nature don’t obey any laws. Why would they add-hear to any gun laws!!??? Again…DUH! These Commie bastards are not fooling any of us law abiding gun owners!! Not for a second!!
