The Biden administration is weaponizing the Department of Justice in frightening ways.
The raid on Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence was just one example.
Now a GOP Senator is blowing the whistle on Merrick Garland for targeting gun owners with this tactic.
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris represent the most anti-gun administration in American history.
And it appears as though the Department of Justice is carrying out Biden’s gun control agenda.
Iowa Senator Joni Ernst recently wrote a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland to inquire about ATF agents questioning gun owners without probable cause of wrongdoing.
Breitbart reported that “Ernst sent a letter to Garland regarding the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives’ (ATF) investigation of potential straw purchases, or when one person buys a gun on behalf of someone else. The Iowa senator . . . raised deep concerns with recent news reports and viral videos that the ATF may be harassing or intimidating gun purchasers. The reports suggest that the ATF may be engaging in ‘knock and talk’ investigations, in which federal agents engage in dubious tactics with American citizens.”
Former ATF agent David Chipman, a rabid gun-grabber, was nominated by Biden to head the agency, but he was not confirmed due to myriad controversies.
But that same gun control spirit is alive and well in the Biden administration.
Ernst’s letter read, “In all of the ‘knock and talk’ incidents brought to my attention, none involved the presentation of a warrant. Simultaneously, multiple ATF agents, dressed in official ATF gear—including bulletproof vests—did not inform the resident purchaser of the optional nature of his or her participation in brandishing the requested firearm. The combination of these factors calls into question whether the ATF’s actions are meant to harass or coerce firearm purchasers into, at best, legally questionable ‘investigations.’”
Biden and the Democrats will go after guns in any way they can.
With blue jurisdictions instituting “red flag” laws, the problem is only going to get worse.
Exercising Second Amendment rights should not be seen as a criminal act or suspicious, but that’s where the Democrats are on gun rights.
The actions of Garland have shown that the DOJ has been weaponized against the Left’s ideological opponents.
Garland sicced the FBI on parents who showed up to school board meetings, and now the ATF is carrying out “knock and talk” investigations without a warrant.
