President Biden has now given his full blessing to radical new gun control measures which will purposefully prevent many Americans from fully exercising their Second Amendment rights.
The new bill, H.R. 8, The Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2021, would require a background check for every single gun sale carried out in the United States. Such a move would present a new, major hurdle for law abiding Americans looking to purchase firearms.
As The Fox News reports:
The Biden administration said Monday it “looks forward” to working with Congress to strengthen the federal gun background check system and to implement “commonsense” steps to reduce gun violence, urging the House to pass two measures that would “close existing loopholes” in the system…
OMB statement of admin policy: The Biden Admin encourages the House to pass two bills that would help close existing loopholes in the background check system: H.R. 8, the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2021, and H.R. 1446, the Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2021.

Rep. Mike Thompson, D-Calif., and 131 cosponsors this month introduced H.R. 8, the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2021, which would require a background check for every firearm sale.
The legislation would use the current background check process in the U.S. to “ensure individuals prohibited from gun possession are not able to obtain firearms.”
And Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., and 91 cosponsors introduced the Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2021, which would further strengthen background check procedures before a federal firearms licensee may transfer a firearm to a person who is not a licensee.
Instead of cutting down on illegal gun ownership, H.R. 8 and H.R. 1446 are an attack on the God-given and constitutionally protected rights of law-abiding Tennesseans. Period.
I will vote NO!
