Just two days before the general election on Tuesday, Former Vice President Joe Biden took to his Twitter page to promise his supporters that gun control will be a big part of his agenda if he wins the election.
The candidate’s official Twitter account announced: “As president, I’ll ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, implement universal background checks, and enact other common-sense reforms to end our gun violence epidemic.”
This isn’t a last ditch effort to grab anti-gun votes with no intention to follow through. Joe Biden has proudly proclaimed his intention to pass gun control since his first day on the campaign trail.
Biden’s War On The AR-15
Not only does Biden want to ban any future manufacturing of more AR-15s, but he would force every AR-15 to be registered under the National Firearms Act of 1934. As it stands, that would simultaneously levy a $200 federal tax on every single AR-15 currently owned by Americans.
And it’s not a “one tax per gun owner.” No, it’s per gun. So if you own more than one, just multiply that $200 by the number of AR-15s you own.
According to most “low” estimates, the number of AR015s that American gun owners currently posses is around 18 million.
Do the math on $200 times 18 million and the federal government would be collecting $3.6 BILLION dollars in extra taxes from AR-15 owners alone.
Biden’s War On “High-Capacity” Mags
If that’s not bad enough, Biden’s stated plan to force American gun owners to register their ‘high capacity’ magazines under the National Firearms Act, as well.
This means that, as it stands, American gun owners would ALSO have to pay $200 per high-capacity magazine they own.
A gun owner that owns two AR-15s with two high-capacity magazines for each gun would be forced to pay $1,200 in new taxes on items he’s already legally bought and paid for!
And it’s not just AR-15 magazines that would be affected. ANY ‘high-capacity’ magazine would fall into this category.
Biden And Harris Have A Lot More In Store For Gun Owners
Breitbart news listed several other radical gun control ideas that Biden has promised his supporters:
A provision that could ban online sales of ammunition, guns, and gun parts.
A pledge to revive the Social Security gun ban, which targeted benefit recipients who needed help managing their finances. The ban was adopted during the last full month of the Obama presidency and repealed during the first full month of the Trump presidency.
A provision that would limit Americans a one-gun-a-month purchase maximum. The Biden campaign website says, “Biden supports legislation restricting the number of firearms an individual may purchase per month to one.”
A push to incentivize states to license would-be gun owners. Biden’s campaign website says, “Biden will enact legislation to give states and local governments grants to require individuals to obtain a license prior to purchasing a gun.”
What does the future hold for America’s law-abiding gun owners? New Zealand has already discovered that mass gun confiscation follows actions like these.
The left’s vision of America grows uglier by the moment.
