The Biden administration has now taken things one step further with its insatiable urge to take away gun rights: shut down places where people purchase them.
Now retailers’ cooperation with even law enforcement is at risk as a result of firearm license revocations hitting higher numbers.
During a recent speech on gun control, President Biden spoke in a less than truthful manner.
He stated “we should repeal the liability shield that often protects gun manufacturers from being sued for the death and destruction caused by their weapons. They’re the only industry in this country that has that kind of immunity.”
These claims were very similar to his previous rhetoric aimed at gun manufacturers.
In fact, last year he stated that “The only industry in America, a billion-dollar industry that can’t be sued, that is exempt from being sued, are gun manufacturers.”
And then during a Democratic Party presidential primary discussion in 2019, Biden asserted, “Our enemy is the gun manufacturers, not the NRA, the gun manufacturers,” to which no one candidate corrected or condemned him for saying.
Little does Biden know that by targeting the arms industry he is putting Americans’ safety at risk, extending beyond individuals exercising their right to bear arms per the Second Amendment.
The Federalist has reported that there has been a 500% increase in the number of firearm retailers being forcefully shut down as a result of small technicalities like paperwork errors, all thanks to the Biden administration.
Independent investigative reporter who specializes in covering firearms, Lee Williams, shared that at one point, ATF was revoking licenses of federal firearms licensees (FFLs) at a rate of at least 40 each year.
“But, in the 11 months since Joe Biden declared war on ‘rogue gun dealers,’ the ATF has revoked 273 FFLs — an increase of more than 500%. However, rather than targeting the true rogues, Biden’s ATF is revoking FFLs for the most minor of paperwork errors, which were never a concern for the ATF until Biden weaponized the agency.”
Biden’s proposed budget focuses on driving gun retailers out of business, the report says. Meanwhile, Biden wants $20.6 billion for the Department of Justice to be used for law enforcement, crime prevention, and intervention.
The paper also stated:
“Plans for the ATF to hire 140 special agents and another 160 Industry Operations Investigators were tucked into that spending request. That’s more inspectors to revoke licenses than special agents to actually jail up criminals.”
With what’s been stated, perhaps now would be the best time to stop by your local dealer to see what they have to offer before they’re forcefully closed down.
