Four gun control now Democrat senators are demanding President Biden sign an executive action to address so-called “ghost guns”.
The lawmakers, led by Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), sent a letter to President Biden stating that while Congress supposedly works on legislation to ban ghost guns, he must sign an executive action that addresses the untraceable firearms that are usually ordered online and assembled at home.
“We write to ask that you take executive action to keep unserialized and untraceable firearms known as ‘ghost guns’ off our streets,”
Specifically, we request that you immediately direct the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to regulate these firearms under the Gun Control Act and ensure that they are subject to a background check.
Additionally, the ATF should collect data on when ghost guns are used in crimes and publicly release that information.”
What Are Ghost Guns?
Democrats Assualt On American’s Second Amendment Rights Continues
The senators highlighted a loophole in existing gun laws that allows purchasers to buy a “ghost gun” kit for a few hundred dollars, assemble it themselves.
The ATF does not regulate these kits as firearms.
Democrats ‘Ghost Guns’ Straw Man Argument For Gun Control
Without showing any proof, these Democratic Senators claimed that the use of ghost guns contributes to wider gun violence.
Stating that due to a lack of regulations, it can be difficult to collect data on ghost guns or investigate crimes involving weapons.
These Democratic Senators implied Ghost Guns were connected to the overall numbers:
“According to the Gun Violence Archive, at least 19,233 Americans lost their lives to gun violence in 2020, the highest number in the last two decades.
Blumenthal and 14 other senators introduced a bill last May that would have banned ghost guns and required online kit manufacturers to provide serial numbers and conduct background checks.
White House officials have in recent weeks met with several anti-gun violence groups to discuss how to move forward on an issue that has divided Congress for years.
Attendees at the meetings cited outlawing ghost guns as one item administration officials were considering, and the White House seemed receptive to using executive action more broadly to address gun violence.
The Biden administration has yet to roll out any specific proposals on gun laws, though it has endorsed The Background Check Expansion Act, which was introduced last week by congressional Democrats and would require unlicensed or private sellers to conduct a background check prior to transferring a firearm.
Legislation to expand background checks or tighten access to firearms has repeatedly fallen flat in Congress which is why Democrats want President Joe Biden to circumevent Congross to pass their gun control idiocy.
- Fact: Background checks go through the FBI and red flags like being on a terrorist watch list or a violent convicted felon already show up.
- Fact: No serious study shows a correlation between the number of bullets in a magazine and murder rates.
Democrats Ignore The Fact That Gun Control Hasn’t Worked
As TuskerDaily reported earlier House Democrats Are Set To Pass 2 New Gun Control Bills on Wednesday.
But while screeching that America must have GUN CONTROL NOW!
These gun control now Democrats never seem to mention the fact that while many Democratic-controlled cities have some of the most stringent anti-Second Amendment laws in America…Gun violence continues to run rampant.
- Despite Chicago Democrats locking down their city almost the entirety of 2020, the Windy City was still able to double the number of shootings, and homicides from 2019?
As Breitbart’s Awr Hawkins reported on Tuesday, California and Los Angeles have some of the strictest gun laws in the country.
Yet in South L.A. it has experienced “a 742 percent surge in shooting victims during the first 16 days of 2021.”
