That is how they often manage such tremendous societal shifts over the course of years; they also practice another rule, which is, "Keep the pressure on."
The Democrat left has, for years, focused on chipping away at the Second Amendment because as Marxists, they know they cannot gain full control over an armed populous so the goal is to disarm as many Americans as possible while keeping the government as heavily armed as it can be. And the 'movement' got a huge boost earlier this week when its current puppet, Joe Biden, declared that some gun parts are actually "firearms" and thus can be regulated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
The White House released a fact sheet early Monday indicating that President Joe Biden intends to announce that his Department of Justice (DOJ) is prepared to label gun parts kits as “firearms” in an effort to ban so-called “ghost guns.”
Democrats use the phrase “ghost guns” to describe firearms that Americans can build themselves. The firearms are often built from an 80 percent receiver in the case of a rifle, or 80 percent frame, in the case of a pistol. Building such guns has long been an American hobby. The new rules from Biden’s DOJ refer to the 80 percent parts kits as “buy, build, shoot” kits and label the kits themselves as firearms.
In May 2021, the outlet reported that Biden's Justice Department was also pushing new rules requiring persons to undergo a background check in order to acquire gun parts kits to build firearms at home while also requiring that Federal Firearms License (FFLs) holders add a serial number to previously built or 3-D printed guns that "they take into inventory."
"We are committed to taking commonsense steps to address the epidemic of gun violence that takes the lives of too many people in our communities. Criminals and others barred from owning a gun should not be able to exploit a loophole to evade background checks and to escape detection by law enforcement," Attorney General Merrick Garland said at the time.
"This proposed rule would help keep guns out of the wrong hands and make it easier for law enforcement to trace guns used to commit violent crimes, while protecting the rights of law-abiding Americans. Although this rulemaking will solve only one aspect of the problem, we have an obligation to do our part to keep our families and our neighborhoods safe from gun violence," he added.
According to a White House Fact Sheet, the new rules announced by Biden and Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco follow through on the 2021 proposal mandating that FFL holders add serial numbers to any firearm that comes into their possession that doesn't have one:
The Justice Department is requiring federally licensed dealers and gunsmiths taking any unserialized firearm into inventory to serialize that weapon. For example, if an individual builds a firearm at home and then sells it to a pawn broker or another federally licensed dealer, that dealer must put a serial number on the weapon before selling it to a customer. This requirement will apply regardless of how the firearm was made, meaning it includes ghost guns made from individual parts, kits, or by 3D-printers.
Biden also lied last spring when he claimed that the Second Amendment was never intended to allow Americans to buy any gun they wanted or things like cannons, but in fact, that's not true. In the earliest days of our republic, private individuals and companies most certainly were allowed to purchase cannons and did. Also, private companies could buy some of the first Gatlin guns, some of which were put aboard trains carrying valuable cargo to help defend it from bandits.
Only in the more modern era with Democrat tyrants have Americans' gun rights been taken away. Our founders would be ashamed.
