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 made 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 left 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 - secured passage of a 10 - year ban 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. It is 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 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 do 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.

President Trump

During Trumps first run for office in 2016, National Rifle Assn. Spend MORE than $30 million in support of his narrow victory. It was a good bet. Trump has appointed large number of conservative federal judges and designated gun businesses to be critical infrastructure during the COVID - 19 Pandemic, allowing them to remain open as local governments force other businesses to close to slow infections. The Trump Administration loosened regulations on export of firearms and online publication of technical information about guns, and it reversed Obama - era rules restricting gun purchases by people deemed by the Social Security Administration to be mentally unable to manage their affairs. After the massacre at Parkland, Fla., High school in 2018, Trump suggested arming schoolteachers who were adept at guns as a response to school shootings. Polls show most teachers oppose the concept, which was also opposed by teachers unions. After Democrats took control of the House of Representatives after the 2018 election and introduced legislation to expand background checks and MORE tightly regulate gun sales and transfers, Trump Administration threatened to veto measures if they come to the president's desk. Trumps personal talk about guns has sometimes drifted away from his administration walk. After major mass shootings in 2019, including ONE in El Paso, where white gunman specifically targeted Latinos, Trump expressed openness to expanding background checks and so - call red flag laws that allow the government to take guns away from people deemed to be at higher risk of committing violence. We have tremendous support for really common - sense, sensible, important background checks, Trump told reporters in August 2019. That didnt happen. Apart from a narrow ban on niche bump stock accessories used by gunman to increase his rate of fire in the 2017 Las Vegas massacre, Trump did not take action and has resumed bashing Democrats for pursuing tighter regulations, earning plaudits from gun activists. You promise to defend the Second Amendment and stand tall for constitutional freedoms in which our members believe, NRA SAY in July endorsement of Trump reelection. You have delivered on your promise in extraordinary ways. In a recent interview with a Catholic TV station, Trump declared that he save the Second Amendment. If I wasnt here, you wouldnt have Second Amendment.
