President Joe Biden recently told reporters that he intends to lock up people for selling just one gun without a Federal Firearms License (FFL).

President Joe Biden made these statements in a press conference about the new gun control legislation that was passed a few weeks ago. This is already being referred to as “Backdoor Universal Background Check” legislation by some.

 

While Biden’s statements are concerning, it is not entirely clear if this is actually how the legislation will operate. The legislation does ramp up penalties for certain straw purchases, and it does change how FFLs work, but the legislation does not go into this “one gun” scenario that Biden outlined.

The legislation passed, the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act will make it so those who are looking to sell firearms as part of an estate or those who are selling off their collections will require an FFL.

As we have previously reported:

New Penalties for Straw Purchasers

This bill will allow new, increased penalties for those convicted of purchasing a firearm for a person prohibited from owning a firearm.

Current law allows for a $250,000 fine and five years in prison for straw purchasing. The newly proposed bill would allow for 15 years in prison, and if the firearm involved in the straw purchase was used for a “crime of terrorism,” the purchaser can face up to 25 years in prison.

President Biden’s words here are deeply concerning, and it may be a sign that the end is near for private firearm sales.

The sad thing is, the Demented Idiot thinks this will make a difference. It won’t have any measurable effect on crime or the criminals who commit the crimes.
Just another Infringement upon the 2nd Amendment Rights of the Law Abiding Gun Owners.

fjb. If his drug-crazed, sexually demented POS son Hunter doesn’t have to obey laws then no one should have to worry over selling or transferring a gun to a relative or life-long friend. Joe Bidet is just a very small, insignificant POS tyrant that fantasizes about his importance in this world. That POS Bidet can judge me when he’s perfect. fjb.

Bolshevik Biden is really pushing his luck…
Is he so senile as to think everyone is going to knuckle under to his plans for dictatorship?

Does that mean as a FFL holder, I can open my own store 😉 🤔
