‘Deeply troubling’: Pro-gun groups speak out against Biden proposals

President Joe Biden campaigned in part on his promises to enact stricter gun control measures if elected.

Now that he is in the White House, two major pro-gun organizations have spoken out in opposition to Biden’s public support for measures that could criminalize law-abiding gun owners and bankrupt the firearm-manufacturing industry.

“Time to act”

As the Washington Examiner reported, Biden gave a hint of what might come in a statement earlier this month.

On the three-year anniversary of the tragic mass shooting at a school in Parkland, Florida, the president insisted that his administration “will not wait” for the next tragedy to take action against what he dubbed an “epidemic of gun violence” across the U.S.

“Today, I am calling on Congress to enact commonsense gun law reforms, including requiring background checks on all gun sales, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and eliminating immunity for gun manufacturers who knowingly put weapons of war on our streets,” Biden’s statement continued.

He went on to declare that the “time to act is now” and that his administration owes it “to all those we’ve lost and to all those left behind to grieve to make a change.”

The founder and president of the U.S. Concealed Carry Association, however, is among those who are voicing their opposition.

“Virtually nothing”

Tim Schmidt wrote a letter to the Biden administration stating, in part: “While we can agree that there are several ‘commonsense’ and long overdue changes needed to our nation’s gun laws, we firmly believe that the path forward should be focused on supporting and protecting responsible, law-abiding Americans — not criminalizing and punishing them.”

Biden’s proposals, Schmidt argued, would do “virtually nothing” to reduce gun crime or keep Americans safe, calling it “deeply troubling” that the president would exploit the somber occasion of the Parkland massacre anniversary to push for legislation that would not have prevented that shooting.

Rather than increasing taxes on firearms, he said that support for nationwide reciprocity for concealed carry permits would be a position that could truly bring about positive change.

A prominent firearms industry trade group also took issue with Biden’s stance.

In its statement, the National Shooting Sports Foundation blasted the president’s rhetoric regarding the removal of the industry’s “immunity” from lawsuits as well as moves to undo what is known as the “Fair Access” rule, which would clear the way for financial institutions to stop doing business with the firearm industry.

  1. Tell this idiot to have secret service guards get rid their weapons and take down razor wire around DC and send the troops home

      1. There is only one cure for Biden and Kamala Harris, including Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, and many other Dems! Re-Call everyone of them and push for impeachment of everyone of those Dems, including the RINOS!

        1. Mr. Wilson…Yes, there is a cure. I would care less if I read in the paper those heathen corrupt officials caught the coronavirus with a terminal result. Pray daily.

    1. Hell no keep the treasonous traitors trapped in there for easy arrests. BTW have you ever noticed the “razor wire” is on the INSIDE of the ‘fence”? (like what we do in the prisons to stop the “inmates ” from escape?) I DID! That’s what we do at the correctional facilities.

  4. I think he better not think he is going to cow tow the American people he’s not going to get away with it. Like every other enemy of the United States he is making a mistake if he thinks the American people will roll over a just take it!

    1. He’s just about shot his wad anyway his brain if he ever had one is almost gone. Even the democrats want to take the football away from him! But god protect us if it takes a Nancy and Schumer to pull the trigger

      1. Sad thing! the DC Constitution bender is in the Chinese pockets. I hope not! But it’s a good possibility that Biden or his #2 will invite the Chicoms here to take over our lands and streets.

        The Chicoms are waiting for us to kill each other, so that they can invade with no problems. Otherwise, for Biden’s invitation for them to come in.

        I’m glad there are many trees to hide behind. How about you? Would you comply?

  5. The armored demonstrators present more harm than guns. Outlaw armored rioters. If they are not looking for trouble why are they armored. More people have died in connection with rioters and unrest than guns alone.

    1. It’s not working for the Left. They are on the path to abolish the Constitution. They are working real fast pace to destroy this Nation.
      They want your heart and soul. And will do anything to make that happen.
      They are getting ready to hit the streets and totally subjugate us and turn us into serfs. I don’t think that a great number of Conservatives are still not awake yet, and don’t know what’s happening. It would take an early counter action to cut them off from what they are doing, before it’s too late, and they are deeply embedded in their goals.

  6. There would be less need for more gun sales if democrats could figure out there is a this side and that side of our border wall. Also if DA’s along with deadbeat judges did their jobs and upheld existing laws.

    1. DC knows what you have for weapons (unless, you built one). Based on that premise, they can bust in around 3 AM when you are drowsy from sleep, and demand the forfeiture of your stashed arms.

      Everyone must plan and prepare for such dastardly deeds way ahead of time. The DC people considers us (the American citizens) the “enemy”.
      They are playing for keeps! They are at top speed tying up all the loose ends before they start marching. Congress & Senate will not help you. They have a missing backbone to fight in your behalf. This is a real war!
      Talk to your neighbors, and shun the ones who wish you harm. Neighborhoods are a must for protection.

  7. this man is to stupid he can’t see the forest for the trees one of the most worthless pieces of crap on earth if his mouth moves he’s lying send him out to sea with no return ticket

  8. All one has to do is find an old “non-revised” history book to see what happens when a TYRANNICAL “government” confiscates all firearms from the law-abiding citizens. (or live through it) “HINT” you will not be living long…The CLUELESS, INDOCTRINATED , BRAINWASHED,”millenials” (as well as many so-called adults) today just do not realize what A TYRANNICAL “government” will ALSO do to THEM. No one will be spared, you will kowtow to the communist agenda or be “eliminated”.

  9. Most of the shootings were false flags in order to set up this gun grab.. and it’s always the same story. These cabal members will probably create another one so they can take away our 2nd amendment rights for good. Just one of the several steps in this Marxist takeover to lead to totalitarian control.

  10. Biden is proving that he does not know what he talks about. His VP is putting some of this “HORSE MANURE” in his head.
    Pray he doesn’t resign in 6 mo. to a year and we get “you know who” is in with the politician from NY City who is on TV every Sunday shooting his mouth off and not really saying some thing. He does that to impress his voters.
    Look who “S” is buddies with?

  11. I’m sure there are millions of Democrocks who do not want to lose their legal guns also. What ill the brainwashed Biden do?

  12. The democrats lack of control of rioters/demonstrators are directly responsible fo the rise in gun violence across the US.

  13. Biden should be IMPEACHED for ignoring and undermining our Constitution and the Seconded Amendment! If We Americans are unarmed of any weapon! JUST HOW LONG DO YOU THINK IT WILL BE BEFORE CHINA OR RUSSIA ATTACK US? No this must NOT be permitted in any way shape or form!

  14. Seems Like he is following the One World Order Agenda under the leadership of Soros rather than upholding his oath the Nations Constitution

  15. Joe Biden is the greatest danger to America and its citizens. Biden has proven to be mentally unstable and challenged, by his actions and words. His only achievement to date is the use of his pen, and he’s acting like the tyrant, he and the Democratic Party accused President Trump of being… Congress has been ignored by Biden as he wields his pen to enact his foolish revenge, not so much on Trump m, but on the American people!

  16. Biggest threat to America is Biden and his goonies trying to divide America, reduce or eliminate our Constitution and remove our means of protection. As our founding fathers said, ” the will of the people to posses guns creates an equal balance between the people and the government”. Hmmm, they build a wall around our Capital, try to destroy our constitutional rights, are flooding our country with illegals, etc. Seems they have a agenda that’s not pro America.

  17. WE WILL NOT DISARM UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES! It is our legal and constitutional right to keep and bear arms to protect ourselves and our families. This low-life who is trying to run our country is dangerous and will lead us directly into a civil war as his totalitarian government tries to disarm us to control and enslave us..

  18. We fought for our country and for our freedom in foreign countries. Now we are fighting for our country in our own country where the enemy of our nation sits in the White House with his Marxists. Now, more than ever, we will NOT surrender our firearms, NOW OR EVER. This totalitarian president’s plan is to hang all of us law-abiding Americans out
    to dry.

  19. If the current laws and regulations were enforced unilaterally,there would no “need” for any more laws! I will always have a firearm in my home for protection and I enjoy hunting to supplement my dietary regimen. Or to put it in words a lot of people will understand better, anyone breaking into my home will be shot dead and I enjoy the variety in my meals that hunting provides,not to mention the financial benefits!

  20. Hitler did the same thing, took away everyone’s guns! Look what happened afterwards! That is coming here if we allow it. So, fight back, save our constitutional rights, or we will have none!
