Biden is Coming for Guns

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY APRIL 9, 2021

         PRESIDENT BIDEN PROMISED DURING THE CAMPAIGN HE WOULD COME AFTER GUNS AND NOW HE HAS TAKEN THE FIRST OF WHAT HE SAYS WILL BE SEVERAL STEPS TO CONTROL WHAT HE CALLS “GUN VIOLENCE.” JUST TO BE CLEAR, GUNS AREN’T VIOLENT. PROPLE ARE. BUT NEVER MIND THAT.

         IN A SERIES OF EXECUTIVE ACTIONS, THE PRESIDENT CALLED ON THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT TO ISSUE RULES TO STOP THE PROLIFERATION OF SO-CALLED “GHOST GUNS” WITHIN 30 DAYS. GHOST GUNS REFER TO KITS THAT ALLOW THE RECIPIENT TO ASSEMBLE THE FIREARM USING PROVIDED PARTS. THE GUNS DO NOT HAVE COMMERCIAL SERIAL NUMBERS AND ARE DIFFICULT TO TRACK.

         THIS IS JUST A START. AS WITH ABORTION, WHICH HAS KILLED MORE BABIES THAN PEOPLE WITH GUNS, THE LEFT ALWAYS BEGINS AT THE EXTREME. ONCE A PRINCIPLE IS ESTABLISHED – IN THIS CASE THE RIGHT TO UNDERMINE THE SECOND AMENDMENT – THERE WILL BE NO STOPPING THEM.

         I’M ALL FOR STIFFER BACKGROUND CHECKS AND OTHER REASONABLE REGULATIONS, BUT I HAVE YET TO HEAR ANYONE TELL ME WHAT LAW WILL CONVINCE A LAWBREAKER TO OBEY IT? ONLY THE LAW-ABIDING OBEY LAWS. CRIMINALS ALWAYS FIND A WAY AROUND THEM. I’M CAL THOMAS.
