President Joe Biden is openly threatening Americans’ Second Amendment rights.
Following a deadly shooting in Boulder, Colorado last week, President Biden is promising to enact “rational gun control,” the Washington Examiner reports — and he may even take executive action to get it done.
Speaking with reporters Sunday, Biden, a former senator from Delaware, said “the only gun control legislation that’s ever passed is mine,” as the Examiner reported. “It’s going to happen again,” the president said.

Biden’s gun reform plans
While White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has said that permanent changes to gun laws will need to be made via Congress, The New York Times reports that the White House hasn’t ruled out executive orders on the issue.
“There’s lots of leverage you can take, obviously, as president and vice president,” Psaki told reporters last week, according to the Times.
The repeated threats of action on gun reform have Republicans including Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert crying foul. In a tweet following Biden’s first press conference as president on Thursday, Boebert said the “Second Amendment is clear” on the issue, as the Washington Examiner reported.
Biden just said clearly that he certainly is coming for our guns, it’s just a matter of time.
The Second Amendment is clear on that issue, Joe.

Of course, gun control makes for a good distraction from the ongoing crisis at the southern border that the Biden administration has thus far failed to tamp down on.
A look ahead
With Democrats adamant about not backing down in the realm of gun control or immigration reform, the importance of the 2022 midterm elections is only heightened.
Republicans will have a chance to break a 50-50 split in the Senate, where Vice President Kamala Harris serves as a tiebreaker, and pundits were already suggesting just a week after November’s elections that the GOP would be poised to take back the House in the next nationwide match-up.
Until then, it’s time for Republicans in Washington to step up and fight back against Democrats’ radical proposals. Our Constitution is at stake.
