If Joe Biden’s gun control plan goes into effect, it will cost gun owners $34 billion dollars. The plan gives gun owners a choice.
They can either sell their alleged assault rifles and high volume magazines to the government or register them at a cost of $200 dollars apiece.
It will also mean that the government would have full access to who owns these items.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) produced a report showing that there are 20 million modern sporting rifles and 150 million ammunition magazines privately owned in the United States at the present time.
You do the math. Under Biden’s plan, manufacturers would be banned from producing either of these items.
The regulation already covers machine guns. The Biden plan does not explicitly cover a tax on these items but existing regulations would also have to be changed to prevent the tax and it is unlikely the left would go for that or even whether Biden would even suggest that if he is elected president.
PolitiFact acknowledged as much but they said the tax might be written out of the bill before being introduced. Yeah, and bears will swear off honey. The popes will no longer be Catholic, and Democrats will never cheat in an election.
Responding to the news, NSSF spokesman Mark Oliva indicated that the sheer number of affected firearms and magazines ought to give the Biden team pause before enacting such sweeping regulation.
“I think if [Biden and his team] were smart, they would look at those numbers and get an idea of where America stands on gun ownership and gun rights,” he told the Free Beacon.
It just so happens that the news comes alongside a Gallup survey showing support for stricter gun laws has fallen to its lowest levels since 2016. Perhaps public opinion would sway Biden away from his campaign position, but don’t hold your breath.
Democrats really don’t care what you or I think because it does not matter who we vote for as long as they are the ones counting the votes. It is only going to get worse. Let’s just hope that Biden does not win honestly or otherwise.
