Joe Biden thought he could strip Americans of their gun rights.
But Americans always find a way to get their freedoms back.
And now, Joe Biden’s biggest gun control scheme is failing badly.
One of the biggest gun control moves that Joe Biden has made during his time in office was his attempt to criminalize “ghost guns” – homemade guns that don’t have a serial number.
This, of course, made no sense. Ghost guns aren’t typically owned by gang members or street criminals. They aren’t generally used in mass shootings either.
Ghost guns are much more commonly owned by gun nerds who don’t want the government poking into their business.
But Biden had his hands tied because of his slim majority in the Senate, where Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema were refusing to undo the filibuster, hence denying Biden the 60 votes he would need to pass the hardcore gun legislation he craved.
Because of that, he resorted to using executive action to reinterpret existing laws to go after “ghost guns.”
He thought this would be the lowest-hanging gun control fruit that he could find. But as it turns out, he was wrong.
According to Bearing Arms, “When President Joe Biden announced he was going to direct the ATF to enact new rules on unserialized firearms – so-called ghost guns – many heralded it as the end of this horrible scourge that is plaguing our cities.”
“Of course, these firearms appear to account for just a small fraction of firearms in criminal hands, but that’s irrelevant to these types of people.”
“In fact, as soon as they were put into place, people stepped up to provide a way around them.”
The article then links to a Vice article about ghost guns. Vice, of course, is a Left-wing and anti-gun publication, so they think it’s a bad thing that people are getting around the ghost gun restrictions.
But nonetheless, it has some nuggets that will be interesting to pro-gun conservatives.
The Vice article states that, “Barely a few weeks into the new regulatory regime, the firearms industry has already adapted and scored an early legal victory. And gun enthusiasts have created and released open-source blueprints for a simple plastic tool that offers a relatively quick, easy – and apparently legal – workaround for anyone who still wants to build an untraceable weapon.”
“The tool, known as a jig, is designed to help with the assembly of the exact type of Glock-style pistol frames that the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) is trying to restrict. One version was posted by Ethan Middleton, a Wisconsin-based 3D-printed gun file designer known online as Middleton Made.”
Middleton had this to say when Vice asked him about it: “It’s the biggest middle finger to the ATF. Whatever they’re going to do, we’re going to try to find a way around it.”
This is a courageous move by people who are risking the wrath of the ATF to make these firearms.
And it’s a perfect example of how Americans can circumvent the Biden administration’s unconstitutional policies.
