The future is uncertain for the AR-15, tactical rifle known variously as Assault weapon, Black Rifle or modern sporting rifle. While not everyone agrees on the name, everyone seems to agree that the stakes are high for their continued existence as readily available firearms in America. Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his running mate Sen. Kamala Harris have set their sights on Assault rifles, which have been used in the deadliest mass shootings in the US, including massacres at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., In 2012, Pulse nightclub in Orlando in 2016, Harvest music festival in Las Vegas in 2017, and Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., In 2018. President Trump opposes gun control and has been endorse by the National Rifle Association. But if Democrats win the White House and Senate on Nov. 3, Biden-Harris gun control policy would have a profound effect on Assault rifles. Biden has proposed to ban the manufacture of Assault rifles and require that all existing Assault rifles be registered under the National Firearms Act, which add 200 tax and lengthen Background Check wait time from minutes to months. The government would buy back all Assault weapons that are not registered under NFA, tier of gun control typically reserved for machine guns and silencers. This is anathema to gun owners, who have long argued that Democrats are trying to take their guns away. Buyback would face logistic challenges because there are so many Assault rifles, which the gun industry prefers to call modern sporting rifles, or MSR for short. America is flooded with AR-15s, user-friendly weapons originally developed for the US military as M16 that debuted during the Vietnam War and have been used in every War since. Expect next to zero compliance with registration effort for legacy MSR owners, say Brian Rafn, recently retired Gun industry analyst from Morgan Dempsey whose family owns shares in Sturm, Ruger. I would expect class-action lawsuits and injunctions against any attempts to list MSR rifles under NFA regulations. He estimates there are 94 million to 97 million gun owners in America, with a civilian gun arsenal totaling 578 million firearms. This includes some 10 million owners of 17 million to 20 million Assault rifles. Biden's campaign says the buyback program would pay market value for Assault rifles. But Rafn says it is more complicated than that. He expects that aftermarket prices for Assault rifles would rise by 20 % to 30 % due to gun control measures and would inflate funds required for cash buybacks. Also, gun owners often customize their AR-15s with modular accessories including scopes, grips, lights and slings. He says this can drive up value for owner beyond the market value recognized by buyback. Gun sales have surged through summer to record heights, driven by customers ' desire for Self-Protection during pandemic and ensuing civil unrest.

APRIL 2019

If she is elected President in 2020, Kamala Harris will have quite a to-do list on Gun Control. The California senator plans to announce Wednesday morning in New Hampshire that she will take executive action to ban importation of all AR-15-style Assault Weapons if she wins the White House. Last month, Harris promised to take four other executive actions to combat gun violence in her first 100 days, if Congress fails to pass legislation first. According to a senior Harris campaign official, Gun Control Act of 1968 gave executive branch power to prohibit importation of guns not suitable for or readily adaptable to sporting purposes. But officials say that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has not conducted a comprehensive review of non-importable Assault Weapons in two decades. Under Harris ' proposal, federal government would ban AR-15-style Assault weapon imports because they are not suitable for or readily adaptable to sporting purposes, including all 44 AR-type models listed in legislation that has been introduced by Harris ' California colleague, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, to Ban Assault Weapons. Additionally, Harris would direct ATF to suspend all Assault weapon imports until comprehensive study is conducted regarding their admissibility under sporting purpose test, which would include all 205 Assault weapon models listed in Feinsteins legislation, Assault Weapons Ban of 2019. Harris is one of the co-sponsors of that bill, which has gone nowhere in the Republican-Control Senate. The former prosecutor and California Attorney General has made gun Control early centerpiece of her presidential campaign, as she jostle for position in a historically crowded primary field. With Montana Gov. Steve Bullocks campaign launched on Monday, there are now 22 Democrats officially in the race. In April, Harris promised during live CNN Town Hall that she would move quickly to close loopholes and tighten regulations on gun purchases, if elected President. 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 and if they fail to do it, then I will take executive action, Harris told the audience. And specifically, what I will do is put in place the requirement that for anyone who sells more than five guns a year, they are required to do background checks when they sell those guns. According to the Harris campaign, that would result in near-universal background checks. Harris also said that she would instruct the ATF to revoke licenses of any gun manufacturers and dealers who do follow the law. And she would reverse regulatory changes overseen by President Donald Trump, which allow hundreds of thousands of people with outstanding warrants to purchase guns. Finally, Harris said she would move to close the so-call-boyfriend loophole in the Violence Against Women Act, which bars spouses and live-in partners convicted of domestic violence from possessing Gun, but not past or present dating partners.

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. The Senator does not specifically state that these measures implemented as California AG would be part of her executive action on gun control, if elected President.
