The Democrats have been determined to strip Americans of their Second Amendment rights for decades, if not longer.
Now with control of the White House and a slim majority in both houses of Congress it’s possible they could get their wish – even if they do it in secret.
And a Texas Republican is sounding the alarm that this new ATF rule is just a backdoor to a federal gun registry.
Joe Biden has never been quiet about his disdain for the Second Amendment and many on the Left are on the edge of their seats waiting for him to follow through on promises to strip citizens of their constitutional rights.
The tough part for Biden and the Democrat Party is that not everyone on the Left is on board and with a razor thin majority in Congress they have to be careful how they push it through.
It’s not unusual to find a Democrat from rural America who doesn’t believe in taking people’s guns and that is where Biden and allies run into an issue.
Texas Representative Michael Cloud, a Republican, recently sounded the alarm over a new Democrat ATF rule that he says is nothing more than a backdoor to a federal gun registry.
In a letter to the acting Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) director, Cloud called out a recent rule change that aims to force manufacturers to keep manufacturing records beyond the current 20-year threshold.
The letter was signed by fifty-one other GOP lawmakers.
Cloud and the other Republicans warned that Biden and the Democrat Party would use this to collect more information on law-abiding gun owners – this comes on the heels of the ATF collecting 54.7 million gun records in 2021 alone.
The move is giving many gun owners cause for concern.
“The Biden administration is yet again ignoring the real threats against America and instead using political leverage to encroach on the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens,” Cloud said in a statement.
Joe Biden and his radical leftist allies are using this move to create a federal gun registry, which would in turn strip away the rights of every law-abiding citizen in the United States.
The Left knows they can’t fully control the country if the citizens are lawfully armed, so it’s no wonder they’re working every possible loophole to take away your constitutional rights.
