If you are one of the more than five million first-time gun owners in this country, you may have just become an undesirable in the eyes of our new presidential administration. If you’re already a firearms owner, then you already know how the new administration views you.

With the months-long rioting literally all around the country in 2020 and the widespread call to defund the police, millions of Americans became first-time gun owners while fearing for their families’ and their own safety. The Biden-Harris administration did not approve of this and, with their election, have proposed legislation to curtail these types of activities.

For those who supported Biden, here’s what you have brought on the country regarding firearms. I found this information on the “Joe Biden’s Gun Control Plan” webpage. The administration wants to ban the new manufacture of so-called assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. They want to control the firearms and magazines already in personal possession by requiring registration of both the firearm and the magazine, including a $200 tax for the right to continue owning these items. That tax is for each item. If you own five high-capacity magazines, that’s $200 per magazine!

They’re talking about a “buyback” program to get firearms off the streets. If this happens, you might be forced to sell your new $600 handgun to the federal government for $50! This administration wants to require gun owners to have a firearms owners’ license. They want to limit “the stockpiling of weapons” by limiting you to buying a maximum of one firearm per month. They want universal background checks by anyone selling a firearm. This would effectively eliminate the private sale of guns, period!

Biden-Harris proposes ending the sale of firearms over the internet. That would make acquiring a firearm here in Alaska difficult and problematic. My ability as an FFL dealer to do firearms transfers would be greatly reduced, and for certain types of firearms like blackpowder cartridge guns, folks would have a difficult time buying them. I don’t know of any dealer in Alaska who specifically handles this type of firearm in any quantity.

Firearms confiscation is being discussed to keep firearms away from those considered dangerous. They would like to see a national “red flag” law in effect, which would allow the confiscation of firearms, without due process, from anyone reported as dangerous by anyone for any reason. Guess what that would mean for you “conservative” types out there!

Another major item in the Biden-Harris firearms agenda is to rescind the current law which holds the manufacturer of an item innocent of responsibility for the illegal and unlawful use of that product. If this law is repealed, Smith and Wesson could be sued for some dirtbag using one of their firearms to rob the local gas station. The Biden-Harris administration is only proposing this for the firearms industry. Think how this would affect our economy if this law was repealed for the automobile and liquor industries!

I have not listed everything itemized on the Biden Gun Control webpage. Look it up for yourself and imagine the impact all these items would have on your daily life and personal safety if they would be enacted.

I have read that if this gun-control legislation is successful in passing Congress, the next step would involve eliminating all semi-automatic firearms private ownership, whether they be rifle, handgun or shotgun. Yet, according to FBI statistics, more people are killed in this country each year with knives and baseball bats than with so-called assault rifles!

Four states and 37 counties within other states have declared themselves to be Second Amendment sanctuary jurisdictions. Texas is in the process of possibly becoming the fifth state to do so. The first four states to adopt this approach are: Alaska, Idaho, Kansas, and Wyoming.

{p class=”p1”}According to Wikipedia, “Second Amendment sanctuary, also known as a gun sanctuary, is a state, county, or locality in the United States that has adopted laws or resolutions that prohibit or impede the enforcement of certain gun control measures (considered to be) a violation of the Second Amendment such as magazine bans, red flag laws, etc., basically allowing people (to do) what the constitution allows them to do.”

Make no mistake about it, this is the worst assault on our Second Amendment in my lifetime. The “progressives” have already launched a major assault on the First Amendment, including the ability of people to worship as they choose. If the Second Amendment falls, you can kiss the rest of our Constitutional protections good-by as well.
