Joe Biden is not waiting for Democrats in Congress to act on his radical agenda.
Biden is imposing his policies by executive fiat.
That led Joe Biden to say seven words about the Constitution that will frighten every American.
On Thursday, Joe Biden announced a series of executive orders on gun control to attack the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.
Biden’s orders will criminalize Americans who own a common firearms accessory known as a stabilizing brace, develop a “model” for red flag confiscation laws (which allows anti-gun judges to allow government agents to burst into Americans homes and confiscate their guns), and to regulate homemade guns that family members or neighbors may sell to one another.
Joe Biden then falsely claimed these orders designed to regulate and confiscate firearms had nothing to do with the Second Amendment.
“Today, we’re taking steps to confront not just the gun crisis, but what is actually a public health crisis,” Biden stated. “Nothing, nothing I am about to recommend in any way impinges on the Second Amendment.”
But the most worrisome thing Biden said was when he declared that “no amendment to the Constitution is absolute.”
“No amendment, no amendment to the Constitution is absolute,” Biden added. “You can’t yell ‘fire’ in a crowded movie theater — [and] claim freedom of speech. From the very beginning, you couldn’t own any weapon you wanted to own. From the very beginning that the Second Amendment existed, certain people weren’t allowed to have weapons.”
There are several errors here.
First, the Supreme Court case that Biden pulled the “you can’t yell fire in a crowded theater” line was overturned in Brandenburg v. Ohio, which limited the ability of the government to only ban speech that could lead to criminal acts.
Second, the first piece of federal gun control legislation was not passed until 1934 in the form of the National Firearms Act.
Finally, if Biden does not believe any Amendment is absolute, then what would he say are the exceptions to the 13th Amendment, which banned slavery and involuntary servitude?
