Democrats are already staring down the barrel of a very difficult 2022 midterm elections.
Their path to victory may have just narrowed considerably.
That’s because Joe Biden signed one order that will send Democrats in Congress heading for the exits.
Multiple Democrats representing border districts already retired rather than run for re-election facing the headwinds of the Biden induced crisis at the southern border.
Now other Democrats running in swing districts may be eying retirement rather than face a pummeling at the ballot box after Joe Biden made gutting the Second Amendment a top priority.
Biden is signing six executive orders to regulate, ban, and confiscate firearms.
The first order is forcing anyone who buys firearms made from kits or 3-D printers to undergo a background check and enter the firearms registration database.
POLITICO reported that, “among the actions Biden will take will be to direct the Department of Justice to begin, within 30 days, the process of requiring buyers of so-called ghost guns — homemade or makeshift firearms that lack serial numbers — to undergo background checks and, within 60 days, regulating concealed assault-style firearms, according to the White House.”
Biden is also signing orders to help states create a framework to pass dangerous red flag confiscation laws that allow liberal judges to grant permission to government agents to storm into Americans’ houses, as well as confiscate their firearms and also use taxpayer money for gun control studies.
POLITICO also reported that, “Biden will also direct the Department of Justice to provide states within 60 days with proposed red flag legislation that would permit courts to order the temporary removal of firearms from a person who may be a danger to themselves or others and issue a comprehensive report on firearms trafficking, according to the White House. The last report was completed in 2000. In addition, Biden will direct five federal agencies to redirect money to help prevent community violence. The Department of Health and Human Services will also help teach states how they can use Medicaid money for gun violence prevention.”
Democrat Presidents are playing with fire when they push for gun control ahead of an election.
In 2013, Barack Obama tasked Joe Biden with overseeing the effort to ram a national gun registration database into law.
That effort failed.
And in 2014, Republicans padded their majority in the House and won back the Senate by capturing nine Democrat held seats.
Biden is inviting a similar backlash with his gun grabs and more Democrats could exit Congress ahead of what they believe will be a beating in 2022.
