President Biden has been gearing up for gun control for quite some time. Since January 20, 2021, White House press secretary Jen Psaki has bragged that Biden has a history of “taking on” and “defeating” the National Rifle Association (NRA). 

Earlier this week, Psaki also confirmed that Biden is reviewing the possibility of using executive orders to pass gun control restrictions. This update comes on top of news that Biden instructed Democrat legislators weeks ago to get the ball rolling on gun control legislation.

More updates and reports only confirm this. According to Breitbart News, Biden is considering declaring “gun violence” as a “public health emergency,” so that he and his allies have a smoother path to infringing on Second Amendment rights. 

Tyranny from the Biden Administration

The New York Times reported this week that Biden administration aides and gun control activists have talked about the president declaring gun violence a public health emergency.

These reports come after shootings in Atlanta, Georgia and Boulder, Colorado; while the intricate details of these shootings remain still under investigation, Democrats have rushed to politicize the tragedies in the hopes of passing more gun control. 

Several things could happen if President Biden declares gun violence a public health emergency. Firstly, he would have a path to increase funding for the the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. This would, in turn, permit the bureau to conduct heavier inspections of gun dealerships. 

Biden is also reviewing ways that he can have gun kits categorized as firearms in order to mandate applicable serial numbers and background checks. Gun kits have long been a thorn in the side of gun control advocates who lament that these kits are challenging to trace. 

Gun Sales Across the Nation

As the Biden administration grows increasingly outspoken about its plans to infringe upon gun ownership and Second Amendment rights, guns and ammunition are flying off gun store shelves across the nation. 

Americans feel, now more than ever, the need to arm and protect themselves. There is a direct correlation between the Biden adminstration coming into power and a rise in gun sales. Should Biden deem gun violence a public health emergency, there’s no telling the lengths to which his administration would go in their crusade against the Second Amendment.
