Joe Biden knows that gun violence is a public health epidemic. Almost 40 000 people die as a result of firearm injuries every year in the United States, and many MORE are wound. Some of these deaths and injuries are the result of mass shootings that make national headlines. Others are the result of daily acts of gun violence or suicides that may not make National headlines, but are just as devastating to families and communities leave behind. Joe Biden has Take on National Rifle Association on the National stage and won-twice. In 1993, he shepherded through Congress the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, which established a Background Check System that has since kept MORE than 3 million firearms out of dangerous hands. In 1994, Biden-along with Senator Dianne Feinstein-secure passage of 10-year bans on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. As President, Joe Biden will defeat the NRA again. Joe Biden also knows how to make progress on reducing gun violence using executive action. After the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, President Obama tasked Vice President Biden with developing both legislative proposals and executive actions to make our communities safer. As result of this effort, Obama-Biden Administration Take MORE than two dozen actions, including narrowing the so-call gun show loophole, increasing the number of records in the Background Check System, and expanding funding for mental health services. Its within our grasp to end our gun violence epidemic and respect the Second Amendment, which is limited. As President, Biden will pursue constitutional, common-sense gun safety policies. Biden will: hold gun manufacturers accountable. In 2005, then-Senator Biden voted against the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, But gun manufacturers successfully lobbied Congress to secure its passage. This law protects these manufacturers from being held civilly liable for their products-Protection grant to no other industry. Biden will prioritize repealing this protection. Get weapons of war off our streets. Bans on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines that Biden, along with Senator Feinstein, secured in 1994 reduced the lethality of mass shootings. But, in order to secure passage of bans, they had to agree to 10-year sunset provision and when the time come, Bush Administration failed to extend it. As President, Biden will: ban the manufacture and sale of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Federal law prevents hunters from hunting migratory game birds with MORE than three shells in their shotgun. That means our Federal law does MORE to protect ducks than children. Its wrong. Joe Biden will enact legislation to once again ban assault weapons. This time, bans will be designed based on lessons learnt from the 1994 bans. For example, ban on assault weapons will be designed to prevent manufacturers from circumventing law by making minor changes that dont limit weapons lethality. While working to pass this legislation, Biden will also use his executive authority to ban importation of assault weapons. Regulate possession of existing assault weapons under the National Firearms Act.

Opinion Policies

In one of the standout moments at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday, former Arizona Rep. Gabby Giffords retold her story explaining how she went from being the victim of an assassination attempt to a gun violence crusader. We are a nation ready to end gun violence, Giffords say, endorsing former Vice President Joe Biden's presidential run. She ended her speech with a call for those watching to vote, vote, vote. Biden does have a record, and plan, in favor of gun control. In the 1990s, he was the top Democrat in getting both federal background checks and the 10-year assault weapon ban enact. Biden has often boasted that he has taken on National Rifle Association on the national stage and won twice. As part of his presidential campaign, Biden introduced a sweeping gun control plan that includes universal background checks, assault weapons ban, more resources toward enforcement of existing gun laws, public push for development of smart guns, and incentives for states to adopt red flag laws, which let courts confiscate guns from people deem risk to themselves or others and develop gun-licensing systems. With mass shootings and more typical everyday gun violence regularly making headlines, there is a lot of support for Democrats to act on gun control with more recent support coming from movements like March for Our Lives, which formed after the 2018 Parkland, Florida, school shooting in which gunman killed 17 people and injured 17 others. But there are still questions about how likely gun control is to pass. For one, it would almost certainly require Democrats to retake Senate electoral feat on top of winning the White House. And if Democrats do take the Senate, it is unclear if theyd prioritize action on gun violence over Covid-19, economy, climate change, health care, and criminal justice.
