JOE'S GUN GRAB: Biden Admin Readies New Background Check Rules; Report

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.11.24

According to a Fox News report, President Biden and his administration are preparing new rules for background checks, including a crackdown on sales made at gun shows.

“This is going to keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers and felons,” Biden said in a statement. “And my administration is going to continue to do everything we possibly can to save lives. Congress needs to finish the job and pass universal background checks legislation now.”

The Biden Administration is confident the rule is legal, despite blowback from prominent GOP voices.

“This final rule does not infringe on anyone’s Second Amendment rights, and it will not negatively impact the many law-abiding licensed firearms dealers in our nation,” Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Director Steve Dettelbach said in a statement. “They are already playing by the rules.”

Biden’s new rule comes hot on the heels of Sen. Joni Ernst’s (R-IA) legislation aimed at protecting gun dealers from Biden’s “gun-grabbing agenda.”

The bill, introduced in late February, would “provide firearm licensees an opportunity to correct statutory and regulatory violations, and for other purposes,” and says the “Attorney General may not bring an enforcement action to revoke, or deny a renewal of, a license for a violation of any provision of this chapter or any implementing regulation thereof on the basis of a self-reported violation.”

“For years, the Biden administration has cracked down on law-abiding gun dealers to advance its gun-grabbing agenda, even preventing small businesses from making a living,” Ernst said. “Rather than helping dealers comply with the law, Biden’s ATF has created more hurdles to legally sell guns, so it can turn around and revoke licenses for inconsequential, so-called ‘violations.’ While Joe Biden’s ATF has avoided critical oversight on its FFL abuse for over a year, I am proud to stand up for law-abiding Iowa gun dealers.”
