General | Latest Info

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 taken 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 has taken 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-A 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 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 the 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.

What is the NRA?

The NRA believes that Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris want to destroy the Second Amendment. With only two days left in this election, Biden reiterated his intent to attack law-abiding gun owners if Elect, NRA wrote on its website. While many Americans might expect that our courts would intervene to stop such draconian and unconstitutional policies, Biden has plan for that too. In numerous appearances, Biden and Harris have both refused to reject the idea of packing the United States Supreme Court to ensure that their unconstitutional polices are not struck down. The NRA warn that the plan to pack the Court is a plan to destroy the Second Amendment. Biden and Harris have both made their own position on the Second Amendment clear: they don't believe law-abiding Americans have any right to possess firearms at all, NRA say. The NRA gave their support to the President, saying Trump has been a strong defender of the right to keep and bear arms.

Other Major Victories

WASHINGTON After the Sandy Hook school massacre in 2012, President Barack Obama turned to his Vice President, Joe Biden, to lead the push for new gun laws. It was a natural choice since Biden had written assault weapons ban, long supported expanding Background Checks and earned f ratings from the National Rifle Association while in Congress. As the President knows, I've worked in this field a long time in the United States Senate, Biden said at the time. As Biden prepares to launch his 2020 presidential run on Thursday, guns are an area of his decades-long record in public life in which he has been consistently in line with the values of today's Democratic Party. But still, potential political dangers lurk, even on his signature issue, including vote in favor of the 1986 Bill that the NRA has called law that save gun rights in America. The Firearm Owners Protection Act, which passed Congress overwhelmingly, overturns six Supreme Court rulings and numerous regulations, leaving a lasting legacy as one of the most consequential gun laws of the past century and as a key political boost for the burgeoning gun rights movement. The Measure allows dealers to sell rifles, shotguns and ammunition through mail, and, eventually, internet. It limits federal inspections of firearms dealers while allowing them to sell guns at gun shows, which help them grow in size and popularity. And it make it easier for private collectors to sell guns without obtaining a federal dealers' license, which would play a role in what later become known as the Gun show loophole. But it was a different era decades ago, when compromise was common in the Senate and guns were less of a partisan and emotional issue than they are today. Things look very different in 2019, when Democrats vie with one another to take the toughest line on firearms. I'm one of the last generation of gun lobbyists who used to work with a lot of Democrats, say Richard Feldman, former NRA lobbyist who worked on Bill and later broke with the group. I actually think Biden's more sensible than any other major candidate because he's been around long enough. At the time, Congress had not done anything big on firearms since the Gun Control Act of 1968, which was passed in response to the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. And John and Robert Kennedy. As its name suggest, law was not win for gun rights advocates. The NRA desperately wanted victory and got one when President Ronald Reagan signed into law the Firearm Owners Protection Act, which had finally passed Congress seven years after its introduction. In 1986, gun rights movement really came into its own when it established its power to win on the offensive, David Hardy, conservative lawyer and author wrote in a 2011 article for NRA.
