In a groundbreaking revelation, whistleblowers from within the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) have leaked alarming information about the Biden administration’s plan to effectively ban private gun sales in the United States. This move signals a significant escalation in the administration’s efforts to impose stringent gun control measures without congressional approval.
According to the whistleblowers, the ATF, under direct orders from the White House, has drafted a comprehensive 1,300-page document designed to justify a sweeping ban on all private firearm transactions without background checks. This unprecedented action represents a substantial overreach of executive power, aiming to establish a de facto universal gun registration system, bypassing the legislative process entirely.
The original proposal, which required individuals who repetitively sell guns to predominantly earn a profit, to register as Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs) and conduct NICS background checks on all firearms transactions, has been dramatically expanded in this new draft. The expansion of the proposal indicates a clear intent by the Biden administration to circumvent Congress and the will of the American people in its push for aggressive gun control policies.
Critics of the proposal argue that the expansion of the NICS gun ban registry is not only unconstitutional but also impractical, given the registry’s 94% false denial rate for firearms purchases. The flawed system, they argue, should be abolished rather than expanded, as it infringes upon the rights of law-abiding citizens.
The dangers of universal gun registration are well-documented. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s previous statement, hoping for gun control to act as a “slippery slope” towards more restrictive measures, echoes the concerns of many Second Amendment advocates. They believe that the ultimate goal of such policies is the confiscation of firearms from law-abiding citizens.
In response to this looming threat, Texas Gun Rights, a leading pro-Second Amendment organization, has pledged to challenge the proposed rule in court, promising to take the fight all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary. The organization cites the landmark Supreme Court decision in the Bruen case as a strong legal precedent for defending the constitutional rights of gun owners.
The proposed rule by the Biden administration has sparked significant controversy and is expected to face fierce opposition from gun rights advocates across the nation. As this story develops, the battle lines are being drawn, with the Second Amendment rights of millions of Americans hanging in the balance.
