    Default Biden; give them up or register them

    Biden wants to give assault weapon owners two options: Sell your guns to the feds or register



    As part of his plan to curb gun violence in America, former Vice President Joe Biden is proposing that owners of assault-style weapons either sell their firearms through a voluntary buyback program or register their weapons with the government.

    The proposal is part of a wide-ranging plan the Democratic presidential candidate unveiled Wednesday ahead of his appearance at a gun safety forum in Nevada.


    Biden, like many of his rivals for the nomination, is calling for a ban on assault-style weapons. For current owners who don’t sell them back, the former vice president proposes that such weapons be regulated under the National Firearms Act, which was enacted in the 1930s to cut down on gangland violence during the Prohibition era.

    The Biden campaign, in announcing the plan, said “the National Firearms Act requires individuals possessing machine-guns, silencers and short-barreled rifles to undergo a background check and register those weapons with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Due to these requirements, such weapons are rarely used in crimes.”


    The former vice president’s plan also calls for banning high capacity magazines as well as assault-style weapons, closing loopholes in background checks before firearms purchases, banning the online sale of guns, eliminating legal protections that currently protect gun manufacturers from being held legally liable if their weapons are used in mass shootings and allowing states to implement "red flag" laws.

    Biden’s plan also takes aim at urban gun violence, with an eight-year, $900 million initiative aimed at the 40 cities across the country with the highest homicide levels. The campaign estimates the program could save more than 12,000 lives over eight years.

    Biden’s campaign touted the former vice president’s record on curbing gun violence, highlighting that “Biden has unmatched substantive expertise on addressing gun violence. He has been pushing the conversation on ending gun violence for at least 25 years. And he has taken on the NRA twice and won.”



    The former vice president unveiled his plan a day after the second anniversary of the massacre of 58 people at an outdoor concert in the Las Vegas Strip, the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.

    With the increased spate of mass shootings in recent years, curbing gun violence has become a top issue in the 2020 race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

    Republicans vehemently oppose such gun confiscation proposals, portraying it as an extreme move. President Trump has signaled an interest in strengthening gun laws in the wake of recent mass shootings but has not offered a concrete plan.

    The Biden campaign, in releasing their plan, charged that Trump and Republican leaders in Congress have failed to take action.

    “While Democratic leaders and the American public have reached an undeniable and broad consensus about what needs to be done to address the gun violence epidemic that has engulfed communities across America, Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, Congressional Republicans, and the NRA refuse to take any sensible action,” the campaign emphasized.

    Crooked and befuddled brainless Joe is a danger to society, freedom and liberty. Who cares one flying F what rolls out his confused slimy mouth breathing hole?

    Someone give him a copy of the new FBI gun stats.

    Even if you took every AR-15 from every one of us, the crime rate would remain THE SAME.

    Does anyone know what the amount of money the firearms industry generates for the economy? It has to be a decent amount. From a purely economic standpoint, even a liberal would think this is stupid. These proposals would devastate businesses like PSA thousands of others like it. Do the livelihood of those employees matter at all to people like Biden? Of course they don't.

    The above from Biden"s statement.

    Did he mention that the cities are Dem controlled or that most of those lives aren't worth saving?
