According to Gun Owners of America
Joe Biden’s So-Called “Gun Safety” Plan Explained
For the last four years we have had a Republican President in the White House. As in decades past, Republicans muddled with the NICS system and failed to defend bump stocks. But had Hillary Clinton won, gun owners would have suffered many more losses than this.
However, Gun Owners of America was able to achieve many policy goals under the Trump Administration.
We detailed that in an article titled: Ten Wins for Gun Owners Under the Trump Administration. But our victories will not survive a Biden-Harris Administration.
Imagine the destruction that will be caused by an Administration that refuses to acknowledge that the Second Amendment protects an individual right. Or a President who believes that’s it’s okay to confiscate millions of commonly-owned firearms.
That’s what we are facing if Joe Biden wins the 2020 Presidential Election.
The following contains quotations directly from the Joe Biden gun control proposal. I will contextualize each proposed infringement.
Semi-automatic Gun and Magazine Bans and Confiscation
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. It’s wrong. Joe Biden will enact legislation to once again ban assault weapons. This time, the bans will be designed based on lessons learned from the 1994 bans. For example, the ban on assault weapons will be designed to prevent manufacturers from circumventing the law by making minor changes that don’t limit the weapon’s lethality. While working to pass this legislation, Biden will also use his executive authority to ban the importation of assault weapons.
Mandatory gun and magazine registration, if you can afford it as each firearm or magazine will require a separate $200 NFA tax stamp:
Regulate possession of existing assault weapons under the National Firearms Act. Currently, the National Firearms Act requires individuals possessing machine-guns, silencers, and short-barreled rifles to undergo a background check and register those weapons with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Due to these requirements, such weapons are rarely used in crimes. As president, Biden will pursue legislation to regulate possession of existing assault weapons under the National Firearms Act.

Universal Background [Registration] Checks
Give states incentives to set up gun licensing programs. Biden will enact legislation to give states and local governments grants to require individuals to obtain a license prior to purchasing a gun.
References about UBCs that are reminiscent of the leaked Obama-Biden Administration’s NIJ memo that said “Effectiveness depends on the ability to reduce straw purchasing, requiring gun registration” (emphasis added):
Keep guns out of dangerous hands. The federal background check system (the National Instant Criminal Background Check System) is one of the best tools we have to prevent gun violence, but it’s only effective when it’s used. Biden will enact universal background check legislation and close other loopholes that allow people who should be prohibited from purchasing firearms from making those purchases. Specifically, he will:
End the private sale of firearms, except for gifts to immediate family… for now:

Further Gun Confiscation Legislation at the Federal, State, and Local Levels
Create an effective program to ensure individuals who become prohibited from possessing firearms relinquish their weapons. Federal law defines categories of individuals who are prohibited from purchasing or possessing firearms, and the federal background check system is an effective tool for ensuring prohibited persons cannot purchase firearms. But we lack any serious tool to ensure that when someone becomes newly prohibited – for example, because they commit a violent crime – they relinquish possession of their firearms. There are some promising models for how this could be enforced. For example, California has a mandatory process for ensuring relinquishment by any individual newly subject to a domestic violence restraining order. As president, Biden will direct the FBI and ATF to outline a model relinquishment process, enact any necessary legislation to ensure relinquishment when individuals newly fall under one of the federal prohibitions, and then provide technical and financial assistance to state and local governments to establish effective relinquishment processes on their own.
Bribe states to enact ex parte Gun Confiscation Orders with no due process using federal tax dollars:
Incentivize state “extreme risk” laws. Extreme risk laws, also called “red flag” laws, enable family members or law enforcement officials to temporarily remove an individual’s access to firearms when that individual is in crisis and poses a danger to themselves or others. Biden will incentivize the adoption of these laws by giving states funds to implement them. And, he’ll direct the U.S. Department of Justice to issue best practices and offer technical assistance to states interested in enacting an extreme risk law.
