USA – (AmmoLand.com) – NEWTOWN, Conn. – NSSF, the firearms trade association, focuses on former Vice President Joe Biden’s pledge to ban, register and confiscate the most popular center fire rifles sold – the Modern Age – sporting rifles – sold in America today. Biden borrowed a page from Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke’s failed campaign to create one agenda that would undermine constitutionally protected rights for law-abiding Americans.
“Joe Biden’s gun grip isn’t original, but it’s shockingly honest that they admit the endgame. His campaign promise to confiscate weapons rips the mask off the lie gun control has told for decades, ”said Lawrence G. Keane, senior vice president and general counsel of the NSSF. “Yes, they’re coming for your weapons. The Biden-Harris campaign literally set out how they would do so and violate their oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, but instead destroy it. “
The Biden-Harris Gun Control Agenda proposes banning the sale and manufacture of modern sporting rifles, or what the campaign calls “assault rifles” or “weapons of war”. Indeed, these firearms are fair semi-automatic firearms use 100 year old technology and have been commercially available since the early 1960s. Semi-automatic firearms consume one round for each trigger pull, unlike the military’s automatic firearms, which automatically keep firing while the trigger is pulled. The Biden campaign is on deliberately merging the similar appearances of the AR-15 and the M-16 and M-4 rifles of the military are confusing to the American public.
Biden suggests all of this Over 18 million Modern sporting rifles in circulation would be registered in the same incriminating way as automatic firearms and regulated in the 1934 Arms Act. To do this, current owners would have to register these rifles with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), pay a $ 200 tax, file fingerprints, photos, and run double background checks on firearms that they have already passed a background check to purchase to have . They would also be subjected to a random and unannounced ATF inspection of their gun and put on a federal watch list of gun owners. In addition, the permits regulated under the 1934 NFA have already lagged behind by more than nine months.
The Biden campaign has one to plan for those who would choose not to conform. These individuals would be given two options: They would have to be forced to sell the property to the US government with their own taxpayers’ money Forced confiscation from law enforcement agencies. Conservative estimates would require $ 9 billion to $ 18 billion in tax dollars to subsidize this gun confiscation system.
Biden-Harris’s gun control plan would also prohibit the manufacture and sale of so-called “high-capacity” magazines. His campaign website Roughly compares the hunt to the horrific murder of children, and claims the federal government protects ducks more than children. This disgusting comparison is as wrong as it is appalling. Murder is illegal, plain and simple. The value of human life is undoubtedly greater than that of animals. It is for this reason that the industry rejects these limits because, in a moment of crisis in defense of one’s life, arbitrary magazine capacity limits discriminate against law-abiding Americans over criminals, who by definition are against the law.
Modern sport rifles are widely and lawfully used for hunting, recreational and competitive shooting, as well as for home defense. More than 5 million Americans bought a firearm for the first time in 2020, based on a survey by the NSSF retailer. Completely 40 percent These new gun owners are women. The largest increase in any population is among African Americans, who have skyrocketed 58 percent To date, more than 13.8 million background checks have been performed for the sale of a firearm, surpassing the total of nearly 13.2 million for the full year of 2019.
The NSSF strongly opposes these unconstitutional proposals from the Biden Harris campaign and encourages all Americans to vote on election day to protect their rights under the Second Amendment.
