Gun sales increase, FBI background checks spike amid Biden’s push for gun control

President Joe Biden’s ongoing push for more gun control appears to be having an unintended consequence.

According to new data, gun sales have continued to tick higher during the first months of the Biden administration.

Threatening the Constitution

In April, the president released a statement confirming that he had tasked the Department of Justice with addressing the perceived need for new gun restrictions since Democratic lawmakers had been unable to advance such legislation.

“But this Administration will not wait for Congress to act to take its own steps — fully within the Administration’s authority and the Second Amendment — to save lives,” Biden’s statement asserted.

His proposal enumerated “six initial actions” that he believed were necessary to address gun violence in the U.S., including an effort to stop so-called “ghost guns,” or unregistered firearms constructed from kits.

Biden also nominated David Chipman, who had been a leading adviser to major gun-control organizations, to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

“No amendment to the Constitution is absolute,” the president said of the Second Amendment.

Background checks continue to trend upward

In response to the mounting efforts to limit gun rights, many Americans have apparently decided that their best move is to buy more firearms.

According to the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System, there was a significant increase in background checks for gun purchases last month compared to May 2020. The total number of FBI checks conducted last month — roughly 3.2 million — was about 130,000 more than the same month last year.

The latest report signals an ongoing trend with background checks registering at record highs for several months straight. In fact, April’s total was a staggering 600,000 higher than the number reported in April 2020.

Following Biden’s executive actions related to gun control, several prominent Republicans vowed to fight against the efforts — and even a few moderate Democrats insisted that any such reforms should be handled by Congress.

In a statement from his office, Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) revealed that he “continues to believe that the best path forward is for Congress to address these issues, and he will keep pushing his colleagues on both sides of the aisle to bring their proposals up for a debate and vote on the Senate floor.”

  7. Biden is nothing but a fool. The gun dose not kill it is the person who has the gun that uses the gun to kill. A gun is just like any other tool. It can be used for bag or good. You can use a hammer to kill with or a crowbar to kill with or any other tool. The gun will just lay there until some one picks up the gun to do bad with, like kill someone. This is just another way for the democrats to try and use the power that they want to make the American citizens do what the democrats want them to do. The democrats keep on going like they are and I can say that it will lead to a war in this country.

  8. Well!!! This dumba$$ Democrat has finally told the truth FOR ONCE WITHOUT GETTING HIS FACTS MESSED UP!! sooooo LETS SEE HOW MANY DIEHARD DEMOCRATS WILL STAND BEHIND A PARTY WHO HAS FINALLY DECLARED BY SHOWING THEIR TRUE “PLAYING CARDS” BY DECLARING THAT WITHIN THE US CONSTITUTION THAT NO AMMENDMENT IS ABSOLUTE!!

  9. Biden is telling an OUTRIGHT lie about no Amendment being “Absolute” because that is exactly what they are! That is what the were always meant to be and they are simple to understand, this 2nd Amendment says it shall not be infringed upon, that means at all, not even a little infringement, None!! Biden Is a Lying, Cowardly, Skunk! “Doc G” Ret. USN/USMC
