Bloomberg Demands Biden Target Guns

Michael Bloomberg poured tens of millions of dollars from his personal fortune into efforts to place Joe Biden in the White House, and now he’s looking to make good on his investment. On Thursday, Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety demanded that Biden use executive actions to impose a number of new restrictions on gun owners in the first 100 days of what’s likely to be a Joe Biden term beginning next month,” according to Bearing Arms.

The Everytown for Gun Safety memo demands Biden (their language, not ours):

  1. Shut down the no-questions-asked marketplace for ghost gun parts and kits by directing the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to ensure the background check system covers all firearms, including the core parts and kits used to build untraceable ghost guns;
  2. Address the Charleston loophole, which enables illegal sales to go forward before a check is complete, by requiring all gun dealers to notify the Department of Justice (DOJ) before such a sale, prioritizing completing those background checks, and ensuring no background checks are deleted before completion;
  3. Take action to stop people who shouldn’t have guns and may be looking to get armed by requiring the FBI to alert state and local law enforcement of all denied background checks in their jurisdiction;
  4. Ensure the background check system has all of the prohibiting records it needs by having DOJ interpret the law to cover all prohibited purchasers and encouraging states and federal agencies to submit relevant records; and
  5. Target gaps in the law for proactive enforcement by having DOJ clarify which sellers need to get a dealer license because they are “engaged in the business” and crack down on the online sales market.

“Gun control activists have been going after unfinished frames and receivers for a couple of years now, and Biden’s pick for Health and Human Services, California AG Xavier Becerra, actually joined forces with gun control groups in a lawsuit against the ATF several months ago seeking to compel the agency to redefine unfinished frames and receivers as actual firearms. Now the gun control groups are seeking that same remedy, only through executive action on the part of Biden.

“Everytown’s not just interested in background checks, however. The anti-gun group also wants Biden to establish new “Consumer Product Safety Commission standards for gun storage devices and lay the groundwork for smart guns and microstamping by funding and testing prototypes at the National Institute for Justice” as well as use the Federal Trade Commission to start evaluating gun ads for false and misleading claims.”
