Biden And Buttigieg Refuse To Compromise On Gun Banning

Even though the policies will only harm law abiding citizens, they’re gung ho to make it happen

Biden, Buttigieg say no compromises on overhauling gun laws

Democratic presidential candidates Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg, moderates who project themselves as pragmatic collaborators, are taking a no-compromise approach on the overhaul of the nation’s gun laws after the latest mass shooting.

Campaigning separately in eastern Iowa on Monday, the former vice president and the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, say the minimum provisions include universal background checks, a ban on military-style weapons and high-capacity ammunition, and red flag laws to allow officials to confiscate firearms from dangerous people.

Biden told reporters before a Labor Day picnic in Cedar Rapids that inaction from President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans is “disgraceful.” Asked if there’s room for negotiation, he declared: “None. This is one we have to just push and push and push and push and push.” Buttigieg also rejected compromise, saying after a campaign event in Cedar Rapids: “There is just no good faith in the congressional GOP nor, I believe, in the White House when it comes to dealing with this issue.”

Their comments come two days after a gunman toting an assault-style rifle went on a rampage in Odessa, Texas, killing seven people around town before being gunned down by police. The FBI said the shooter “was on a long spiral of going down.” This shooting occurred less than a month after two other high-profile mass shootings, in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.

Would any of those laws stopped the nutter? We do not have much info yet (which is rather strange), but, it appears he passed a background check, so, enhanced checks would make no difference. No one has said he would have been a candidate for red flags. Not sure what high capacity ammunition is, I assume they mean magazines. They can be built, bought illegally, or, a competent firearms user can switch out a 10 round mag quickly enough as to make little difference. Ban “military style weapons”? Automatics are already banned. If they mean “scary looking rifles” (manufactures should have them come in bright, cheery colors), you can do as much damage with standard rifles.

They both pointed to public opinion polls are a reason for their uncompromising approach. According to national public opinion polls for the past several years, large majorities of Americans support requiring background checks for all gun buyers. Majorities, though smaller, also support banning the sale of military-style weapons such as the AR-15.

“Look, you can either defy the American people or you can defy the NRA,” Buttigieg said. “You have a choice.”

Except, that’s not the way it works in a Republic, where there are established laws and Rights virtually impossible to take away in order to stop the tyranny of the majority.

Good luck with that, Beto dude. And that is exactly why 2nd Amendment supporters refuse to compromise, refuse to allow any of these new laws, because we know the end game. Universal background checks require a gun database, making it easier to take people’s guns by force. Look at New Zealand

So far, owners have turned in more than 15,000 newly banned guns as well as 64,000 parts and accessories. In return, the government has handed them 32 million New Zealand dollars ($20 million). But nobody has a clear target for the program because authorities haven’t kept track of the number of guns in the country.

Tentative estimates put the total number of guns in New Zealand at about 1.5 million and the number of weapons that are now banned at up to 175,000. If those numbers are correct, it would mean less than 10% of the banned weapons have been handed in so far. Owners have until Dec. 20 to turn them over or potentially face charges.

No database, so, The Authorities do not know who has what. And we’ll see what is turned in by December 20. Further, remember that they didn’t just ban “assault rifles”, but most semi-automatics. Like hunting rifles and pistols. And this, like the Democrat’s policies, primarily cause harm to the law abiding. Criminals will still keep their firearms.
