Tactical P.E. Featuring Concealed Carry: President Biden Recommends F-15’s and Nukes



In a June 23, 2021 address, President Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland delivered remarks on the administration's strategy to prevent gun crime.

There is much to dissect in what the president said related to the future of gun rights. I will not examine everything the president said during the address because there is a lot. I do, however, want to point out a few statements I found “interesting.”

Joe Biden

The thrust of the plan rests squarely on, you guessed it, guns and the Second Amendment. More specifically, how inanimate objects are the root of the problem, and the president's explanation of a Second Amendment not found in the United States Constitution.

FFL's to Blame?

Both the AG and president pointed out that federal firearms dealers (FFL's) have a role to play in keeping guns out of the hands of those who shouldn't have them. The president presented the following statistic:

90% of the guns recovered from crime scenes, were traced as coming from 5% of FFL's

Now I don't have anything to refute that claim, so let's take it as truth. If that is the case, wouldn't it be a massive win if the ATF used its authority to enforce existing laws that govern FFL's and firearm transfers instead of diverting their apparent limited resources to reinventing definitions to criminalize the law-abiding?

I know it seems too simple, but perhaps that's why it would affect. We often pass over simple solutions because we want to be revolutionary. The ATF has the authority to prosecute and regulate FFL's as well as those making straw purchases or by lying of the ATF Form 4473. Now we're told that 90% of crime-scene guns have a link to the ATF's ineffectiveness. Admittedly I am not a genius, but I am not sure how taking away your's or my AR-15(s) would impact guns used in crimes.

Ghost guns, Magazine Capacity limitations, and Pistol Braces Oh My!

Nevertheless, they brought out the usual boogeymen. Ghost guns, magazine limits, and stabilizing braces are things a civil society just can't tolerate. But, unfortunately, no one presented statistics on the number of crime-scene guns equipped with stabilizing braces. And we weren't privy to any data explaining how limiting a magazine to 9 rounds from 10 rounds would save lives.

But you know, that was never the point. Anyone who honestly looks at these ideas knows these measures have zero effect on reducing violent crime. For some reference, here is an explanation of what stabilizing braces are.

We Get It, Deer Don't Wear Kevlar Vests:

The president commented on deer not wearing kevlar vests. He apparently thought this was rather witty because he said it two times. Both times it was to substantiate his assertion that Americans “don't need a gun that holds 30, 40, 50 or 100 rounds.”

The speechwriters need to be aware that the Second Amendment doesn't give us the “right to hunt deer.” Sure, no one dumps 100 rounds of 5.56 into a deer. You probably wouldn't be able to eat it, and that much ammo would be expensive. However, people have guns that accept magazines of 30, 40, 50, or 100 rounds because…well, reloading while your attacked sucks. Magazine limit restrictions are just one of many feel-good, do-nothing efforts politicians use that appease the base. Here is a post on why magazine limit restrictions are worthless.

No Do-Over's On The Second Amendment:

At one point, the president needed to address the elephant in the room. They must have thought, we simply can't push for all these ridiculous gun laws. Especially in light of the Second Amendment and the case law supporting the individual's right to possess firearms in common use for self-protection. So instead, the president created a phony second amendment.

I must say, it seems convenient, but at least as of the time of this post, the president can't unilaterally change the Constitution. No matter how fantastic his son's artwork is.

Vincent VanBiden

Hunter van Gogh – let's hope he keeps both of his ears attached.

The president said:

I might add that the Second Amendment, from the day it was passed, limited the type people who could own a gun, and what type of weapon you could own. You couldn't buy a cannon

What? Here is the real Second Amendment that the rest of the country uses:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.  Keep reading......
