FPC Statement on President Biden’s Latest Attack on Gun Rights

Aug 9, 2022 | 0 comments

Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) released the following statement in response to President Biden’s latest attack on Second Amendment rights: 

President Biden and his administration have cemented themselves as authoritarians on the wrong side of history, tradition, and the Constitution. His proposals announced today are another volley of shots aimed at undermining the fundamental right to keep and bear arms and putting more people in cages for exercising their rights. While Bloomberg-funded extremists spin their ban policies as mere “regulations,” Joe Biden clarified today what we all knew to be true: He does indeed want to take your guns. 

Biden’s use of incendiary terms like “ghost guns” has one purpose: cause undue fear and obfuscate the truth, a cheap tactic to force his policy preferences on the People. And we see through it. Firearms Policy Coalition is committed to exposing anti-gun propoganda for what it is, and we will continue to open the eyes of our nation’s courts to the disingenuous strategies employed by unscrupulous lawmakers with regard to gun control the Second Amendment. 

Just like we did in our historic victory challenging California’s ban on so-called “assault weapons” in Miller v. Bonta, and our recent petition asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review Maryland’s similar ban in Bianchi v. Frosh, FPC has and will continue to pursue all litigation options and take every possible action to block enforcement of any law restricting the right to self-manufacture one’s own arms for self-defense. 

For those interested in learning more about the Second Amendment right to self-manufacture firearms that President Biden is working to infringe upon, FPC’s Director of Constitutional Studies and scholar, Joseph Greenlee, recently published “The American Tradition of Self-Made Arms.” Based on his original research, the paper casts a bright light on the Biden administration’s current and blatant disregard for the constitutionally protected American tradition to self-manufacture arms.
