Biden signed a new executive order to bring us as close as possible to universal background checks. They will empower thugs and weaken citizens who want to protect themselves.
Usually, the legislative branch passes laws, and the president isn’t able to significantly alter federal gun legislation with the stroke of a pen, but that apparently won’t stop our crazy Uncle.
Gun rights groups are already threatening litigation against President Joe Biden’s executive order designed to increase background checks, arguing his action is overly broad and will target legal gun owners.
“Biden’s executive orders today attempting to implement a pro-criminal, anti-gun agenda show that when Joe Biden and his fellow gun-grabbers have a choice between defending the rights of law-abiding citizens or siding with violent criminals, he chooses the criminals, “Patrick Parsons, executive vice president at the American Firearms Association, told the Washington Examiner on Tuesday.
LAWSUITS ARE COMING
Second Amendment rights group, Gun Owners of America, took to social media to cast responsibility on Republican lawmakers such as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) and Sen. John Cornyn (TX) for their support of bipartisan legislation last year.
“GOA warned Compromise Cornyn and Mitch McConnell of the outcome of their ‘bipartisan’ anti-gun legislation & now we’re seeing executive orders for backdoor Universal Background Checks and funding every single ‘red flag’ gun confiscation law,” the group tweeted Tuesday evening.

They’re going to fund every red flag law and go after gun dealers.

Will Biden’s executive order block Hunter from obtaining a firearm illegally — as he did by lying on a gun purchase background check ATF form? Conveying false inflation to the ATF carries a fine of up to $250K & up to ten years in prison https://t.co/W8MCzwPLVC

President Biden will announce an Executive Order with the goal of increasing the number of background checks conducted before firearm sales.
This was in Biden’s backpocket. These announcements always timed to change topics. (Not sure how criminals will find guns now)
