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 TASK 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. 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.

Supreme Court ruling

They express concern that the case could unleash further Court challenge to existing criminal firearms laws. This would leave prosecutors hindered in their ability to enforce those laws that they have long understood to be valid and compromise in their continuing efforts to combat gun violence in their communities, they say. But the Supreme Court in 2008 ruled in favor of Heller, saying there is an individual right to firearm possession, although that right is not unlimited. Article in Bearing Arms-publication that believes in pre-existing inalienable right to self-defense-say Biden chose running mate who argued in 2008 that Washington, DCs Ban on handguns didnt violate the Second Amendment right to Keep and Bear Arms. It cites District attorneys argument against creating a broad private right to possess any firearm that is lineal descendant of founding era weapon and that is in common use with military application today. Legal scholars, however, say that although Harris supports amicus brief, it is false to conclude from it that she Believe-as article claim-you dont have the right to own a gun. The brief in question is not about whether there is an Individual Right under the Second Amendment. It is about crime-related consequences of invalidating DC handgun Law at issue in Heller, Aziz Huq, of University of Chicago Law School, told AFP by email. Huq studies how constitutional design interacts with individual rights and liberties. Adam Winkler, specialist in gun policy at UCLA School of Law, makes a similar argument. This statement is false, he say of articles claim. Brief she support argue that DCs gun laws should be upheld but not because there was no right to own a gun, Winkler said in an email to AFP. Rather, brief argue that laws should be upheld because there is a tradition of gun restrictions, and DCs were reasonable regulations, say Winkler, author of Gunfight: Battle Over Right to Bear Arms in America. The Amicus brief which Harris joined argues that, at least as far as the Second Amendment is concern, it doesnt relate to private rights, say Charles, of Duke Center for Firearms Law. But he add: I am not sure its fair to claim that as her current position give that the Supreme Court decided in Heller that people do have that right, and I havent see her questioning Heller's decision. Fact-checking organizations have already debunked the false claim that Harris will send police to peoples doors if you do surrender your guns. Since Biden named her as his running mate, AFP Fact Check has disproven other false claims about Harris, including that she would be disqualified from serving as President because her parents were foreign-born.

APRIL 2019

Social media posts circulating recently dont accurately convey what Harris say. She said if elected President, she would wait 100 days for Congress to enact reasonable gun safety laws and if they fail to do so, she would take executive action. Harris clarified that her intention was not to confiscate legally owned guns. FACTS: viral post that first make rounds in spring 2019 is recirculating again this week in days since Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden chose Harris as his running mate.

It claim Harris said during her presidential campaign that she wanted Americans to give up their guns, or if elect, she would take them forcibly. If elect & you dont surrender your guns, I will sign an executive order & police will show up at your door, post reads, with line attributing words to Harris. The claim stems from CNN Town Hall event in April 2019, when Harris was contending for the Democratic presidential nomination. At that event, Harris was asked about mass shootings and how she would keep guns out of the hands of people who shouldnt have them. Upon being elect, I will give the United States Congress 100 days to get their act together and have courage to pass reasonable gun safety laws, Harris respond, according to transcript of the event. And if they fail to do it, then I will take executive action. Harris clarified in her response that if people want to go hunting, that is fine, but that she would advocate for new gun safety laws including requiring universal background checks and renewal of the assault weapons ban. Harris also said she would put fugitives from Justice on a list of people who should not be able to purchase any weapon, but she did not say she wanted to confiscate weapons or threaten citizens ' Second Amendment rights. There are people in Washington, DC, suppose leaders, who have failed to have courage to reject false choices which suggest they are either in favor of the Second Amendment or you want to take everyone's guns away, she say. This is part of Associated Press ' ongoing effort to fact-check misinformation that is shared widely online, including work with Facebook to identify and reduce circulation of false stories on the platform.

AUGUST 2019

While addressing union members at a forum hosted by the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees in Las Vegas, Nevada in August 2019, Harris was asked by conservative outlet Washington Examiner if any of her proposals for the process of banning certain kinds of guns would involve creating a database of Gun-owners or more active role by law enforcement. Harris respond by talking about her experience as California Attorney General, when her office put resources into allowing law enforcement to actually knock on doors of people who were on two lists. She explained these criteria as: list where they had been found by court to be a danger to themselves and others, and were on a list where they were precluded and prohibited from owning a gun because of conviction that prohibited that ownership. Entries of these lists, Harris say, were combined and then law enforcement was sent out to take those guns. Harris clarified that it was necessary to separate legal good ownership from other gun-related issues, including ownership of assault weapons. Senator Do not specifically state that these measures implemented as California AG would be part of her executive action on gun control, if elected President.
