VA – GUN POLITICS -Joe Biden’s Unreasonable Gun Control Agenda – Malarkey Moderate

To borrow language from the Biden campaign, the notion that Barack Obama’s former vice president is a reasonable moderate is malarkey. Gun rights supporters know that as a lawmaker Biden voted in favor of radical gun controls that trampled upon the rights of law-abiding Americans and against legislation to protect those rights. As vice president, Biden lead the Obama administration’s assault on the Second Amendment. Since joining the 2020 Democratic presidential field, Biden’s positions have gotten more extreme. Candidate Biden has endorsed everything from gun-owner licensing to confiscation of commonly owned semi-automatic firearms and handgun bans. During his 36-year career in the U.S. Senate, Biden supported all manner of gun control. In 1993 Biden voted for the Brady Bill, which imposed a five-day waiting period on handgun sales. Later discussing Biden’s role with the legislation, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence noted that Biden had “worked hard for passage of the Brady Law.” In both 2004 and 2005, Biden voted against the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. The successful legislation halted anti-gun efforts to bankrupt the firearms industry. Prior to the PLCAA, gun control activists, big-city mayors, and high-powered attorneys had teamed up in a campaign to turn tort law on its head so that firearms manufacturers and dealers would be held liable for the third-party criminal misuse of their products. Biden was so opposed to the PLCAA’s codification of traditional principles of culpability, that in 2004 he gave a floor speech urging his colleagues to oppose the measure. On his campaign website, Biden claims that he “will prioritize repealing” the PLCAA. This would mean the end of the American firearms industry, and with it the eventual end to the right to keep and bear arms.  [full article]
