    Joe Biden's Plan to End Gun Violence | Joe Biden for President

    Biden wants to severely limit how you can acquire guns, parts and ammo. Included in his 'plan' is:
    (verbatim from Joe Biden.com)
    End the online sale of firearms and ammunitions. Biden will enact legislation to prohibit all online sales of firearms, ammunition, kits, and gun parts.

    Ban the manufacture and sale of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.

    Close the “hate crime loophole.”
    Biden will enact legislation prohibiting an individual “who has been convicted of a misdemeanor hate crime, or received an enhanced sentence for a misdemeanor because of hate or bias in its commission” from purchasing or possessing a firearm.

    Create an effective program to ensure individuals who become prohibited from possessing firearms relinquish their weapons.

    Reinstate the Obama-Biden policy to keep guns out of the hands of certain people unable to manage their affairs for mental reasons.

    Reduce stockpiling of weapons
    . In order to reduce the stockpiling of firearms, Biden supports legislation restricting the number of firearms an individual may purchase per month to one.

    As president, Biden will pursue legislation to regulate possession of existing assault weapons under the National Firearms Act.

    Prohibit the use of federal funds to arm or train educators to discharge firearms.

    Put America on the path to ensuring that 100% of firearms sold in America are 'smart guns'.

    Hold adults accountable for giving minors access to firearms, regardless of whether the minor actually gains possession of the firearm.

    TACKLE URBAN GUN VIOLENCE with targeted, evidence-based community interventions.

    I don't have much issue with these two points, other than asking why he hasn't done anything to address either of these in his previous multi-decades in DC. These could have been done independently of the other items in his proposal, at any time.

      Apparently the democrat mayors in large cities didn't have any input.

        Don’t confuse with the “peaceful” gun crimes. Just people expressing their rights.

          The danger here is in the details. When you go to the Biden.com link you'll find a proliferation of weasel words that can take a 'reasonable' sounding lede which, once passed, can be made to mean whatever the enforcers want it to mean.

          Examples:
          1. 'Targeted, evidence-based community interventions'. What does that mean in the context of the 'defund police' narrative which Biden is on record as supporting?
          2. Included in those who may be 'prohibited from possessing firearms' are those whose Social Security records details of a person's mental health status which may judge you 'unable to manage affairs for mental reasons'. Who gets to access and include these SSA 'adjudications' in a background check? You'd likely never know who tagged you or what led to your failed background check, but you'd have to give up the .22 Winchester your grandfather gave to you 50 years ago.

            Unless you consider that Dem mayors in large cities did have input: promoting and encouraging violence to advance a narrative that Orange Man Bad.

              Very true. But if he'd attempted to put any legislation forward over the past many years, the intent would be exposed and begin the process of hammering out those details for implementation. Instead, he's throwing it out now, full of such ambiguity.

                  Good God. Everything that can be done to keep this senile old bastard from becoming president needs to be done. This is make or break time.

                        Yep, got it. But the joke is on them. It's not everyday that 'leaders' willfully attempt pyrrhic victories when its not a even metaphor.

                          It means that in situations like the video show, upon the drawing of the weapon a social worker will instantly appear to de-esaulate the situation. They'll hug it out and continue on to their respective jobs.

                                  I'm not opposed to some of those fuchsers finally getting a job.

                                  they're going to want to work a teacher's schedule though.

                                      Does a white businessman with a burned out business get to deduct the losses from his slavery reparations?

                                            Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
