One of Joe Biden’s primary goals is to eliminate law-abiding Americans’ constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

He’s rolling out an unconstitutional scheme to get it done.

Now Joe Biden is preparing to use this dirty trick to destroy the Second Amendment.

President Joe Biden’s attempts to render law-abiding Americans defenseless by passing more gun control laws have been thwarted by a narrowly divided Congress.

So he’s going around Congress to unleash the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) on law-abiding gun owners.

Empower Oversight, a group that represented IRS whistleblowers in the Hunter Biden case, said that the Biden ATF is planning on regulating private gun sales based on secret information uncovered by the group.

The group sent a letter to Biden Attorney General Merrick Garland in which they explained that the Biden ATF “has drafted a 1,300-page document in support of a rule that would effectively ban private sales of firearms from one citizen to another by requiring background checks for every sale.”

The ATF is going to issue the new rule on direct orders from the Biden regime.

A 1986 federal law passed by Congress prohibited the use of background checks for the sale of firearms between private citizens.

Empower Oversight argued that only Congress could legally authorize background checks on private gun sales because of the law.

“Such an expansive rule that treats all private citizens the same as federal firearms licensees would circumvent the separation of powers in the Constitution, which grants ‘all legislative Powers’ to Congress while requiring that the President ‘take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed,’” Empower Oversight wrote Garland. “To the extent such a rule prevents the private sale of firearms, it would also clearly violate the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, which declares that ‘the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Forcing private transactions between gun owners into the federal background system is an onerous burden on exercising one’s Second Amendment rights, and the first step towards mass gun confiscation.

A father passing down a family heirloom would be forced to get a background check.

Forcing gun owners to record private sales with the government would be a way to create a de facto registry of gun owners, which would be useful for gun-grabbing bureaucrats in the Biden ATF and other government agencies to confiscate them from law-abiding gun owners in the future.

Biden signed an executive order last year ordering the federal government to “clarify the definition of who is engaged in the business of dealing in firearms, and thus required to become Federal firearms licensees in order to increase compliance with the Federal background check requirement for firearm sales.”

Anti-gun Democrats are trying to use the ATF to initiate a mass confiscation of guns that will only render law-abiding Americans defenseless to the criminals they keep releasing into the streets.
