Kamala Harris Wants Universal Gun Registration Via Executive Action

Published

on

2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris declared that she will use executive action to force anyone who sells more than five guns a year to perform background checks.

This is an expansion of anti-gunner’s move to subject all private gun sales to universal gun registration. BLP reported that House Democrats passed a universal gun registration bill on February 27, which criminalizes private gun sales between friends and neighbors if they don’t have the requisite government permission slips.

On CNN’s State of the Union, Harris broke down the details of her executive plan, stating, “For anyone who sells more than five guns a year, they will be required to perform background checks on the people they sell them to.”

BLP covered Cory Booker’s recent announcement pushing for a federal gun license.

When asked about her support for a federal gun license, Harris stated, “I like the idea.”

Gun owners have warned about the dangers of gun registration since the Brady Act was passed in the 1990s.

With the modern Democratic Party fully embracing radical gun control, gun owners have reason to be worried about the latest announcements from 2020 hopefuls. Should Democrats achieve a trifecta in Washington DC, gun registration could likely be on the menu.

Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation

Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”

Published

on

Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.

Under The Background Check Expansion Act,  gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm. 

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House

“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.

According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.

Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms. 

Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.

Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
