Pres. Joe Biden will introduce new gun control measures today in Monterey Park, California, according to a statement issued today, March 14 on Whitehouse.gov.
Billed as “new actions to reduce gun violence and make our communities safer,” the new restrictions would:
- Make a goal of increasing the number of background checks conducted before firearm sales, moving the U.S. as close to universal background checks as possible without additional legislation. Specifically, he will direct the Attorney General to expand the definition of dealers required to conduct background checks, and prohibit gun dealers with revoked licenses from ever dealing guns again.
- Increase the effective use of “red flag” laws by promoting Extreme Risk Orders and safe storage on the local level.
- Accelerate law enforcement efforts to identify and apprehend the shooters menacing our communities.
- Strengthen efforts to hold the gun industry accountable for ‘lost’ guns. Citing an over 250% increase in the number of firearms reported as lost or stolen during shipment between federally licensed firearms dealers, from roughly 1,700 in 2018 to more than 6,100 in 2022, Biden wants the ATF to crack down on this high rate of weapons gone missing. Also, Biden would “publicly release, to the fullest extent permissible by law, ATF records from the inspection of firearms dealers cited for violation of federal firearm laws.”
- Encourage the Federal Trade Commission to issue a public report analyzing how gun manufacturers market firearms to minors.

Biden’s announcement drew this comment from William Moore, Firearms Policy Analyst for the VT Traditions Coalition:
“This President is seeking to use the Administrative State powers to prosecute and investigate lawful gun owners and dealers as a last resort. They hold no hope of Congressional action as they begin their “campaign 2024″ sideshows. The NYSRPA v. Bruens Decision is rapidly closing in and shutting down their most favored infringements like Wait Periods, gun registration as well as magazine and gun bans. In other areas these administrative and surveillance approaches are being investigated and rejected by Congress. The SCOTUS is also likely to radically shrink the BATFE ability to abuse their powers of regulation and infringements against lawful gun owners and states that promote the same.”
better yet to make communities safer, fully fund the police, defund Soros backed liberal DA’s and put the bad guys in the big house.
Funny isn’t it, people keep telling us the United States is a free country. This country is only a fraction away from a full blown COMMUNIST regime. Scott in Vt hasn’t removed the illegal magazine laws that ban magazines on capacity. And now we got a Catholic school getting black listed cause they won’t give to the Pedophiles in this state that love Men in woman’s sports. Woman fought for years for their rights and now the communists are taking them away.
Good thing the men in 1776 weren’t cowards like the people in America today.
Great post. Recent polling has shown that approximately 70% of younger Americans who identify as affiliated with the Democrat party would flee this nation if it were attacked. Sadly, those who claimed association with the Republican party were only slightly less inclined to run.
As far as women’s rights? Most women under age 50 or so wouldn’t know what genuine feminism truly is if their very lives depended on it…..and they do!
Next thing they’ll be buying into is that sexual assault is “empowering” and feral warthogs can vie for spots on girl’s sport’s teams too.
This country has been transformed into a weak-kneed, cowardly bunch of sheeple in but a couple of generations. P-a-t-h-e-t-i-c.
…”apprehend the shooters menacing our communities” UNLESS they are illegal immigrants, minorities, raised as “disadvantaged” or are part of the LGBQ community.
Then, they are free to go and kill as usual.
You just nailed it.
The best way to react to this pathetic excuse for a president and party is to join or renew your commitment to the NRA, the nation’s largest civil rights protection organization. This is a battle which will have to be waged in the courts, and that costs money. The courts are the last vestige of freedom in our once-great Nation
since we can no longer count on the intelligence and scrutiny of the average voter.
I wonder if President Geriatric Imbecile will hold the federal government accountable for “lost guns”? (Fast and Furious)
Why would anyone be surprised by this, he has already attacked every other item in our Constitution and beyond, even to not having any individual thoughts!
The administration who fumbled over billions in weapons to the Taliban, a group sworn to destroy Americans, wants to regulate Americans over “lost” firearms.
Biden’s getting infringey.
Somewhere between 57 and 84 Billion dollars worth of high tech military weapons and vehicles abandoned to our enemies and Biden is concerned about a few handguns stolen here in shipment. How about Obama’s Fast and Furious operation that sent 2,000 so-called assault rifles into Mexico to the drug cartels? The banks a in default, crime is up, inflation is taking what little savings we had and the country is circling the drain. Thank the democrats who are too proud and apparently too stupid to understand that their choices are killing America and Americans. Our Republican governor and lots of his choir voted for this.
Not in his mind, him and his idiotic LGBT administration think their doing fantastic.
No one ever mentions the thousands of illegal guns coming across the border. Or the laws already on the books that are not enforced.
Well of course Northstar would work and make sense.
guns don’t kill people by themselves
Bad and criminal people kill people or themselves.
the gun just does the bidding of the holder.
Must we blame hunting knives as well?
Gun Criminals must be prosecuted and punished,
Perhaps the same as car criminals!
Exactly, go after the gangs and illegal guns in the big cities and bring back mental hospitals so we can lock up the crimally insane instead of pandering to them.
Nothing just more useless look what I did laws that do nothing to stop criminals or gangs in the big cities.
Hey brandon hands off my guns! Go eat an ice cream 🍨
He need to take a nice ride in a convertible in Texas
If gun control worked so well… how come it doesn’t work in ILL,D.C., NY, CA, or ANYWHERE else? Is it that gun control is really about control not guns?
From the book, When The Center Held by Donald Rumsfeld 2018
In 1975, President Ford was left to manage the difficult ending of the Viet Nam War.
President Ford went to congress for a relief package to allow American personnel and our allies to evacuate. However, there was one US Senator who opposed any such support. The result was the embarrassing and hurried evacuation from the roof of the American Embassy in Saigon.
This senator reveled in the embarrassment and did everything he could to leverage it politically against Ford. Despite the efforts of this senator, President Ford managed to rescue 1,500 South Viet Nam allies prior to the country’s fall. Had President Ford not acted quickly, these people would have been targeted and slaughtered for their support for America. When they arrived in America, President Ford asked Congress for a package to assist these refugees to integrate into American society.
That same troublesome Senator torpedoed any support for these shell shocked, anticommunist, Americans and our helpers, the refugees.
Instead, President Ford had to recruit Christian organizations to offer assistance on a voluntary basis. As he did so, the Senator belittled those efforts. What kind of person would oppose President Ford’s tireless work to do the right and humanitarian thing?
Who would want to play politics with the well-being of innocent people who stood by America in the tragic Viet Nam War?
THAT SENATOR WAS JOE BIDEN
Joe Biden the guy who left 358,530 AR16/M4s and other types of Rifles, 126,295 – Pistols and 64,363 SAWs Squad Automatic Weapons (Machine Guns) for a total of 549,118 small arms to the Taliban and sent tens of billions of dollars’ worth of weapons to Ukraine. Then swapped basketball player Brittney Griner, a traitor who kneels for our national anthem and does not want it played before sporting events for Russian arms dealer The Merchant of Death, Viktor Bout who sold tens of thousands of AK47s to terrorists to kill Americans with is telling the American people why we shouldn’t be able to own semiautomatic weapons. When are people going to wake up and see the hypocrisy of these anti constitutionalists. They are the real insurrectionists and domestic enemies of our Constitution.
