Biden Attacks Ghost Guns to “Crack Down” on Violent Crimes

Biden Attacks Ghost Guns to Crack Down on Violent Crimes

Pres. Joe Biden’s administration will reportedly reveal their long-awaited ghost gun rule, which will likely be targeting privately made firearms that do not have serial numbers and that are showing at crime scenes more and more, according to what three people familiar with the matter told The Associated Press.

The said policy’s completion comes following the growing pressure put upon the White House and the Justice Department to crack down on gun-related deaths and violent crimes happening in the country.

The White House has also been reportedly considering naming former U.S attorney Steve Dettelbach from Ohio to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF). Bide needed to withdraw the nomination for his first pick, David Chipman, a gun-control advocate, after his nomination stalled for a while due to Republicans and a few Democrats in the Senate opposing his confirmation.

The said rule has been going through the federal regulation process for almost a year. Gun safety groups and Democratic members in Congress have been pushing for the Department of Justice to complete the rule for months. Gun groups will probably oppose it, making it draw litigation in the next few weeks.

The specific timing of the Biden administration’s announcement is yet to be scheduled, according to the sources.

On Sunday, Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer (N.Y.) begged the administration to move faster.

He said: “It’s high time for a ghost gun exorcism before the proliferation peaks and before more people get hurt — or worse. My message is a simple one: No more waiting on these proposed federal rules.” Ghost guns are “too easy to build, too hard to trace, and too dangerous to ignore.”

According to the Department of Justice statistics, law enforcement recovered almost 24,000 ghost guns at crime scenes and reported them to the government between 2016 and 2020. It’s difficult to estimate how many of these guns are circulating on the streets, partly due to many instances that the police department chooses not to contact the government regarding the guns since they can’t be traced.

The rule would change the current definition of a firearm under federal law. The new definition would include unfinished parts, similar to the frame of a handgun or a long gun’s receiver.

In the ATF’s proposed rule from last May, the agency mentioned that it was also looking to make it a requirement for manufacturers and dealers selling ghost gun parts to be licensed by the federal government. It was also looking to require those who are already federally licensed to add a serial number to any guns without one they are planning to sell.

The said rule would also make it a requirement for dealers to run background checks before selling ghost gun kits with parts needed to create a firearm.

Federal officials, for years, have been sounding the alarm about a black market for DIY, military-style handguns and semi-automatic rifles. Ghost guns have been showing up at more crime scenes, while federal agents have also encountered such guns during undercover operations connected to gangs and other criminals.

In some states, such as California, laws have been enforced in recent years, requiring serial numbers to be stamped on ghost guns.

The most crucial component needed in building an untraceable gun is the low receiver, a part usually made of metal or polymer. People can purchase an unfinished receiver – also known as an “80-percent receiver – online, without any serial numbers or other markings, and without any license required.

Historic! New Poll Records HIGHEST Level of Gun Ownership in America

Historic! New Poll Records HIGHEST Level of Gun Ownership in America

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – According to an NBC News survey done between November 10–14, 2023, 52% of Americans claim to own a gun, either themselves or someone else in their home.

According to NBC News, this is the most significant percentage of gun ownership they have ever seen in a poll.

According to data in 2013, 42% of Americans were gun owners. In 2019, 46% of Americans reported that they, or a household member, was a gun owner.

Currently, 52% of the population is affected.

Furthermore, over the years of polling, the percentage of Democrats who possess guns has also climbed.

When asked if they or anybody in their home had a gun in 2004, 33% of Democrats replied they did. Forty-one percent of Democrats acknowledged owning a gun in 2023.

With 41% of Independents stating in 2004 that they or someone in their family had a gun and 45% saying the same in 2023, Independents have stayed relatively stable. (Independents who stated they owned a gun rose to 49% in 2013.)

According to a Harvard/Harris poll, six out of ten respondents stated that having a gun helps one defend themselves against criminals.

The absence of law and order has made Joe Biden a great gun salesman.

Nashville Covenant School Trans Shooter’s Manifesto LEAKED!

Nashville Covenant School Trans Shooter’s Manifesto LEAKED!

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – During a phone call on Monday morning, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) refused to confirm if the alleged leaked pages from the Nashville shooter’s manifesto were authentic.

The suicide note, 19 diaries, and other artifacts that the transgender suspect in the Nashville Christian school massacre is suspected of leaving behind have all been withheld from the public.

28-year-old Audrey Elizabeth Hale, a transgender former student, murdered three 9-year-olds and three adults last month in a mass shooting at the school.

Hale fired off 152 rounds during the targeted attack at the Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee.

The attack appears to be a deadly hate crime by a deranged trans shooter against Christian Americans.

The media has largely ignored the attack that resulted in six deaths, including three children.

The local authorities and FBI refused to release the manifesto to the public following the mass shooting by Hale in March.

Law enforcement officials were allegedly informed by TBI Director David Rausch in April 2023 that “the killer did not write about specific political, religious, or social issues” in these documents.

Numerous regional publications have verified the photos that Crowder released.

Phil Williams of News Channel 5 criticized the article, referring to it as a “selective leak of three pages.”

According to The Tennessee Star, “sources in the Tennessee General Assembly who were allowed to view the Covenant Killer Manifesto by the Metro Nashville Police Department” provided independent confirmation of the photos.

7th Circuit Court Rules AR-15s NOT Protected by 2nd Amendment

7th Circuit Court Rules AR-15s NOT Protected by 2nd Amendment

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – The United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, a three-judge panel, ruled on Friday that AR-15s are not protected by the Second Amendment, overturning an injunction against Illinois’ “assault weapons” prohibition.

In the case of Barnett v. Raoul, U.S. District Judge Stephen P. McGlynn—a nominee of Donald Trump—issued the preliminary injunction.

The Seventh Circuit heard an appeal of McGlynn’s ruling and rendered a 2 to 1 verdict against the injunction.

The three judges were Michael P. Brennan, appointed by Donald Trump; Diane P. Wood, appointed by Bill Clinton; and Frank Easterbook, appointed by Ronald Reagan.

The majority on the tribunal that overturned the injunction was made up of Easterbrook and Wood.

They cited Heller’s (2008) assertion that “the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited, like most rights.”

They continued by pointing out that the US Supreme Court determined in the Heller case that machine guns were not considered “bearable” weapons for the purposes of the Second Amendment since they might be “exclusively dedicated to military use.”

Next, Easterbrook and Wood discussed the parallels they discovered between M16s—which can fire in three-round burst mode or fully automatic—and AR-15s. They wrote:

“The similarity between the AR-15 and the M16 only increases when we take into account how easy it is to modify the AR-15 by adding a “bump stock” (as the shooter in the 2017 Las Vegas event had done) or auto-sear to it thereby making it, in essence, a fully automatic weapon.

In a decision addressing a ban on bump stocks enacted by the Maryland legislature, another federal court found that bump-stock devices enable “rates of fire between 400 to 800 rounds per minute.”

They added that both weapons “deliver the same kinetic energy” and employ the same ammo.

Judge Brennan dissented from the majority ruling, arguing that the Illinois “assault weapons” prohibition is unconstitutional because it lacks historical precedence in American culture and will fail if tried by Bruen (2022).

Brennan stated: “Preliminary injunctions against enforcement of the challenged laws are justified because the banned firearms and magazines warrant constitutional protection and the government parties have failed to meet their burden to show that their bans are part of the history and tradition of firearms regulation.”

The case is in the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and is Barnett v. Raoul, No. 23-1353.
