The Second Amendment Foundation has released a statement claiming that President-Elect Joe Biden is launching an attack on every gun owner in the nation..
In a statement the foundation points to a pledge made by Joe Biden to defeat the NRA saying, “it’s just cover for a bigger goal.”
“Joe Biden has labored relentlessly for decades to reduce the Second Amendment to rubble,” adding that “he may attack one group by name, but his goal is to crush the rights of every gun owner in our country.”
SAF Founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb said,
“By attacking the second amendment rights of 100 million Americans, Biden is not bringing us together but dividing us further. If people take to the streets in protest, if violence occurs it will be his fault and he should be impeached for violating our constitutional rights and inciting violence. maybe it is time to ban him from Twitter and Facebook!”
“He spent 47 years on Capitol Hill trying to turn the right to keep and bear arms into a regulated privilege. Now that he’s headed to the White House he thinks he will be able to complete his mission. We’re working to swell the ranks of our 2nd Amendment First Responder project to stop him.”
“We didn’t start the fire,” he said “Biden did.” The foundation was reacting to a pledge that President-Elect Joe Biden made on the 10th anniversary of the Tucson shooting, saying “I pledge to continue to work together with congresswoman Giffords, and with survivors, families, and advocates across the country, to defeat the NRA and end the epidemic of gun violence in America.”
Biden’s campaign for the presidency included many pledges about gun control including enacting taxes on rifles and “high capacity” magazines.
He has also advocated for universal background checks, a national buyback or surrender of firearms and removing liability protection for gun manufacturers.
