    THE BIDEN PLAN TO END OUR GUN VIOLENCE EPIDEMIC

    Joe Biden knows that gun violence is a public health epidemic. Almost 40,000 people die as a result of firearm injuries every year in the United States, and many more are wounded. Some of these deaths and injuries are the result of mass shootings that make national headlines. Others are the result of daily acts of gun violence or suicides that may not make national headlines, but are just as devastating to the families and communities left behind.

    Joe Biden has taken on the National Rifle Association (NRA) on the national stage and won – twice. In 1993, he shepherded through Congress the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, which established the background check system that has since kept more than 3 million firearms out of dangerous hands. In 1994, Biden – along with Senator Dianne Feinstein – secured the passage of 10-year bans on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. As president, Joe Biden will defeat the NRA again.

    Joe Biden also knows how to make progress on reducing gun violence using executive action. After the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, President Obama tasked Vice President Biden with developing both legislative proposals and executive actions to make our communities safer. As a result of this effort, the Obama-Biden Administration took more than two dozen actions, including narrowing the so-called “gun show loophole,” increasing the number of records in the background check system, and expanding funding for mental health services.

    It’s within our grasp to end our gun violence epidemic and respect the Second Amendment, which is limited. As president, Biden will pursue constitutional, common-sense gun safety policies. Biden will:

    Hold gun manufacturers accountable. In 2005, then-Senator Biden voted against the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, but gun manufacturers successfully lobbied Congress to secure its passage. This law protects these manufacturers from being held civilly liable for their products – a protection granted to no other industry. Biden will prioritize repealing this protection.

    Get weapons of war off our streets. The bans on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines that Biden, along with Senator Feinstein, secured in 1994 reduced the lethality of mass shootings. But, in order to secure the passage of the bans, they had to agree to a 10-year sunset provision and when the time came, the Bush Administration failed to extend them. As president, Biden will:

    • Ban the manufacture and sale of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Federal law prevents hunters from hunting migratory game birds with more than three shells in their shotgun. That means our federal law does more to protect ducks than children. It’s wrong. Joe Biden will enact legislation to once again ban assault weapons. This time, the bans will be designed based on lessons learned from the 1994 bans. For example, the ban on assault weapons will be designed to prevent manufacturers from circumventing the law by making minor changes that don’t limit the weapon’s lethality. While working to pass this legislation, Biden will also use his executive authority to ban the importation of assault weapons.
    • Regulate possession of existing assault weapons under the National Firearms Act. Currently, the National Firearms Act requires individuals possessing machine-guns, silencers, and short-barreled rifles to undergo a background check and register those weapons with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Due to these requirements, such weapons are rarely used in crimes. As president, Biden will pursue legislation to regulate possession of existing assault weapons under the National Firearms Act.
    • Buy back the assault weapons and high-capacity magazines already in our communities. Biden will also institute a program to buy back weapons of war currently on our streets. This will give individuals who now possess assault weapons or high-capacity magazines two options: sell the weapons to the government, or register them under the National Firearms Act.
    • Reduce stockpiling of weapons. In order to reduce the stockpiling of firearms, Biden supports legislation restricting the number of firearms an individual may purchase per month to one.

    Keep guns out of dangerous hands. The federal background check system (the National Instant Criminal Background Check System) is one of the best tools we have to prevent gun violence, but it’s only effective when it’s used. Biden will enact universal background check legislation and close other loopholes that allow people who should be prohibited from purchasing firearms from making those purchases. Specifically, he will:

    • Require background checks for all gun sales. Today, an estimated 1 in 5 firearms are sold or transferred without a background check. Biden will enact universal background check legislation, requiring a background check for all gun sales with very limited exceptions, such as gifts between close family members. This will close the so-called “gun show and online sales loophole” that the Obama-Biden Administration narrowed, but which cannot be fully closed by executive action alone.
    • Close other loopholes in the federal background check system. In addition to closing the “boyfriend loophole” highlighted below, Biden will:
    • Reinstate the Obama-Biden policy to keep guns out of the hands of certain people unable to manage their affairs for mental reasons, which President Trump reversed. In 2016, the Obama-Biden Administration finalized a rule to make sure the Social Security Administration (SSA) sends to the background check system records that it holds of individuals who are prohibited from purchasing or possessing firearms because they have been adjudicated by the SSA as unable to manage their affairs for mental reasons. But one of the first actions Donald Trump took as president was to reverse this rule. President Biden will enact legislation to codify this policy.
    • Close the “hate crime loophole.” Biden will enact legislation prohibiting an individual “who has been convicted of a misdemeanor hate crime, or received an enhanced sentence for a misdemeanor because of hate or bias in its commission” from purchasing or possessing a firearm.
    • Close the “Charleston loophole.” The Charleston loophole allows people to complete a firearms purchase if their background check is not completed within three business days. Biden supports the proposal in the Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2019, which extends the timeline from three to 10 business days. Biden will also direct the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to put on his desk within his first 100 days as president a report detailing the cases in which background checks are not completed within 10 business days and steps the federal government can take to reduce or eliminate this occurrence.
    • Close the “fugitive from justice” loophole created by the Trump Administration. Because of actions by the Trump Administration, records of almost 500,000 fugitives from justice who are prohibited from purchasing firearms were deleted from the background check system. The Biden Administration will restore these records, and enact legislation to make clear that people facing arrest warrants are prohibited from purchasing or possessing firearms.
    End the online sale of firearms and ammunitions. Biden will enact legislation to prohibit all online sales of firearms, ammunition, kits, and gun parts.

    Create an effective program to ensure individuals who become prohibited from possessing firearms relinquish their weapons. Federal law defines categories of individuals who are prohibited from purchasing or possessing firearms, and the federal background check system is an effective tool for ensuring prohibited persons cannot purchase firearms. But we lack any serious tool to ensure that when someone becomes newly prohibited – for example, because they commit a violent crime – they relinquish possession of their firearms. There are some promising models for how this could be enforced. For example, California has a mandatory process for ensuring relinquishment by any individual newly subject to a domestic violence restraining order. As president, Biden will direct the FBI and ATF to outline a model relinquishment process, enact any necessary legislation to ensure relinquishment when individuals newly fall under one of the federal prohibitions, and then provide technical and financial assistance to state and local governments to establish effective relinquishment processes on their own.

    Incentivize state “extreme risk” laws. Extreme risk laws, also called “red flag” laws, enable family members or law enforcement officials to temporarily remove an individual’s access to firearms when that individual is in crisis and poses a danger to themselves or others. Biden will incentivize the adoption of these laws by giving states funds to implement them. And, he’ll direct the U.S. Department of Justice to issue best practices and offer technical assistance to states interested in enacting an extreme risk law.

    Give states incentives to set up gun licensing programs. Biden will enact legislation to give states and local governments grants to require individuals to obtain a license prior to purchasing a gun.

    ADDRESSING THE DEADLY COMBINATION OF GUNS AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE


    The statistics tell a devastating and overwhelming story. The likelihood that a woman in a domestic violence situation will be killed increases by a factor of five if a gun is nearby. Half of mass shootings involve an individual shooting a family member or former intimate partner. This deadly connection tragically impacts children as well: 86% of children killed in shootings with four or more victims were involved in domestic or family violence.

    Biden recognizes that the gun violence and domestic violence epidemics are linked and cannot be solved in isolation. Addressing the interconnectedness of these challenges will be a core focus of Biden’s anti-violence work as president.

    The Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2019, which Leader McConnell refuses to bring to the floor for a vote, includes a number of reforms to keep firearms out of the hands of abusers. Senator McConnell should ensure this legislation gets passed long before President Biden would take the oath of office. But if McConnell refuses to act, Biden will enact legislation to close the so-called “boyfriend loophole” and “stalking loophole” by prohibiting all individuals convicted of assault, battery, or stalking from purchasing or possessing firearms, regardless of their connection to the victim. This proposal is modeled after existing laws in California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Nevada, New York, and Pennsylvania. Biden also supports enacting the proposal to prohibit anyone under a temporary restraining order from purchasing or possessing a firearm before their hearing.

    In addition, President Biden will:

    • Establish a new Task Force on Online Harassment and Abuse to focus on the connection between mass shootings, online harassment, extremism, and violence against women. As President, Joe Biden will convene a national Task Force with federal agencies, state leaders, advocates, law enforcement, and technology experts to study rampant online sexual harassment, stalking, and threats, including revenge porn and deepfakes — and the connection between this harassment, mass shootings, extremism and violence against women. The Task Force will be charged with developing cutting-edge strategies and recommendations for how federal and state governments, social media companies, schools, and other public and private entities can tackle this unique challenge. The Task Force will consider platform accountability, transparent reporting requirements for incidents of harassment and response, and best practices.
    • Expand the use of evidence-based lethality assessments by law enforcement in cases of domestic violence. Lethality assessments, sometimes called “risk” or “danger” assessments, are a proven strategy to help law enforcement officers identify domestic violence survivors who are at high risk of being killed by their abusers. These survivors are then connected with social service programs that can offer services and safety planning. An evaluation of the Lethality Assessment Program (LEP) created by the Maryland Network Against Domestic Violence showed promising results. Increased federal funding will incentivize jurisdictions to take advantage of implementing these programs more widely.

    Make sure firearm owners take on the responsibility of ensuring their weapons are used safely.

    • Put America on the path to ensuring that 100% of firearms sold in America are smart guns. Today, we have the technology to allow only authorized users to fire a gun. For example, existing smart gun technology requires a fingerprint match before use. Biden believes we should work to eventually require that 100% of firearms sold in the U.S. are smart guns. But, right now the NRA and gun manufacturers are bullying firearms dealers who try to sell these guns. Biden will stand up against these bullying tactics and issue a call to action for gun manufacturers, dealers, and other public and private entities to take steps to accelerate our transition to smart guns.
    • Hold adults accountable for giving minors access to firearms. Biden supports legislation holding adults criminally and civilly liable for directly or negligently giving a minor access to a firearm, regardless of whether the minor actually gains possession of the firearm.
    • Require gun owners to safely store their weapons. Biden will pass legislation requiring firearm owners to store weapons safely in their homes.
    Empower law enforcement to effectively enforce our gun laws.

    • Prioritize prosecution of straw purchasers. “Straw purchasers” buy a firearm on behalf of an individual who cannot pass a background check. Biden will end those loopholes by enacting a law to make all straw purchases a serious federal crime and ensure the U.S. Justice Department has sufficient resources to prioritize their prosecution.
    • Notify law enforcement when a potential firearms purchaser fails a background check. Too often, when prohibited persons attempting to buy a firearm fail a background check, state and local law enforcement is never informed of the attempt. As president, Biden will direct the FBI to set up a process to ensure timely notification of denials to state and local law enforcement, and he’ll support legislation to codify this process. This empowers law enforcement to follow up and ensure prohibited persons do not attempt to acquire firearms through other means.
    • Require firearms owners to report if their weapon is lost or stolen. Responsible gun owners have a responsibility to inform law enforcement if their weapon is lost or stolen. Biden will enact legislation to make this the law of the land.
    • Stop “ghost guns.” One way people who cannot legally obtain a gun may gain access to a weapon is by assembling a one on their own, either by buying a kit of disassembled gun parts or 3D printing a working firearm. Biden will stop the proliferation of these so-called “ghost guns” by passing legislation requiring that purchasers of gun kits or 3D printing code pass a federal background check. Additionally, Biden will ensure that the authority for firearms exports stays with the State Department, and if needed reverse a proposed rule by President Trump. This will ensure the State Department continues to block the code used to 3D print firearms from being made available on the Internet.
    • Reform, fund, and empower the U.S. Justice Department to enforce our gun laws. Biden will direct his Attorney General to deliver to him within his first 100 days a set of recommendations for restructuring the ATF and related Justice Department agencies to most effectively enforce our gun laws. Biden will then work to secure sufficient funds for the Justice Department to effectively enforce our existing gun laws, increase the frequency of inspections of firearms dealers, and repeal riders that get in the way of that work.
    • Direct the ATF to issue an annual report on firearms trafficking. This report will provide officials with critical information to better identify strategies for curbing firearms trafficking.
    TACKLE URBAN GUN VIOLENCE WITH TARGETED, EVIDENCE-BASED COMMUNITY INTERVENTIONS


    Daily acts of gun violence in our communities may not make national headlines, but are just as devastating to survivors and victims’ families as gun violence that does make the front page. And, these daily acts of gun violence disproportionately impact communities of color. But there is reason to be optimistic. There are proven strategies for reducing gun violence in urban communities without turning to incarceration. For example, Group Violence Intervention organizes community leaders to work with individuals most likely to commit acts of gun violence, express the community’s demand that the gun violence stop, and connect individuals who may be likely perpetrators with social and economic support services that may deter violent behavior. These types of interventions have reduced homicides by as much as 60%. Hospital-Based Violence Intervention engages young people who have been injured by gun violence while they are still in the hospital, connecting them to social and economic services that may decrease the likelihood they engage in or are victims of gun violence in the future. Biden will create a $900 million, eight-year initiative to fund these and other types of evidence-based interventions in 40 cities across the country – the 20 cities with the highest number of homicides, and 20 cities with the highest number of homicides per capita. This proposal is estimated to save more than 12,000 lives over the eight-year program.

    Dedicate the brightest scientific minds to solving the gun violence public health epidemic. In 2013, President Obama issued a memorandum clarifying that a longstanding appropriations rider that prohibited the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other federal scientific agencies from using federal dollars to “advocate or promote gun control” does not prohibit those agencies from researching the causes and prevention of gun violence. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) subsequently embarked on funding some of this research, though Republican leadership in Congress refused to appropriate any funds to the CDC for this work. Biden will call for Congress to appropriate $50 million to accelerate this research at the CDC and NIH.

    Prohibit the use of federal funds to arm or train educators to discharge firearms. We should be passing rational gun laws, not requiring educators who already have too much on their plates to also protect the safety of their students. Biden supports barring states from using federal dollars to arm or train educators to discharge firearms.

    Address the epidemic of suicides by firearms. Biden believes any plan to address the gun violence epidemic must address suicides by firearms, which account for 6 in 10 gun-related deaths but are often left out of the conversation. Many of the policies noted above – including safe storage requirements and extreme risk protection orders – will have a serious impact on efforts to reduce gun violence. But there’s so much more we need to do to support people experiencing suicidal ideation. In the months ahead, Biden will put forward a comprehensive plan to improve access to mental health services.

    SUPPORTING SURVIVORS OF VIOLENCE AND THEIR COMMUNITIES


    Violence causes ripples of trauma throughout our communities, impacting not just the victims of violence but also their communities and first responders. Fear of school shootings is having a noticeable impact on the mental health of Gen Z. Intimate partner violence is linked to depression, post-traumatic stress, and other mental health challenges among survivors. And, this trauma can be intergenerational. Science now shows that young children who witness violence – including in their home – literally alters the parts of their brains that affect “reasoning, planning, and behavioral control.”

    We need to reduce violence to prevent trauma from happening in the first place. But we also must treat the resulting trauma as a serious crisis in its own right.

    As president, Biden will:

    • Make federal programs more trauma-informed. During his first 100 days, Biden will direct his Cabinet to conduct a review of all federal programs that directly serve communities likely to experience violence and identify reforms to make sure those programs effectively address resulting trauma. Biden will then invest significant federal funds in expanding and improving the federal government’s support for trauma-informed and culturally responsive care.
    • Create a network of trauma care centers. Biden will bring together offices within the federal government to establish specialized trauma care centers for survivors of violence, with a special focus on survivors of domestic and sexual violence. Domestic violence services are focused on meeting the emergency needs of survivors, including safety planning and crisis intervention. As a result, frontline providers lack the resources they need to offer therapeutic services to help survivors heal from trauma. These trauma care centers will be flexible in meeting the needs of communities, and could be housed at rape crisis centers, domestic violence programs, universities, and existing mental health centers.
    • Train health care and other service providers in trauma-centered care. To prevent revictimization and secondary trauma, Biden will align training efforts throughout relevant federal programs to include a focus on understanding the traumatic effects of violence, providing appropriate care to avoid furthering the trauma, linking survivors with evidence-based trauma therapies, and reducing myths about domestic and sexual violence. This will be accomplished through agency directives, policy guidance, and special conditions for grantees and contractors.


    Adequately fund the background check system. President Obama and Vice President Biden expanded incentives for states to submit records of prohibited persons into the background checks system. As president, Biden will continue to prioritize that funding and ensure that the FBI is adequately funded to accurately and efficiently handle the NICS system.

    I haven’t made it through this whole thing yet but I had to stop and comment about this:

    Federal law prevents hunters from hunting migratory game birds with more than three shells in their shotgun. That means our federal law does more to protect ducks than children.”

    This is the kind of BS logic, which is not logic at all, coming from the Democrat party.

    During the season, it is legal to shoot ducks here between sunup and sunset.

    As I recall, a duck license is sold in every state.

    And, no matter how much you pay, you cannot buy a license to shoot children, regardless of the time of day.

    So whenever a democrat tells you what something means, make sure you look at it as bullshit immediately and you won’t be disappointed 90% of the time.

    They act as if they don’t have a grasp on logic, Because their grasp on propaganda is so firm.

    If you watched Kamala Harris on TV last night, you know that every other statement was about how Trump makes you feel bad if you believe as a Democrat.

    When we give them logic they come back with feelings. I’d like her to explain how those feelings will win a war with the Chinese, fix the American school system or prevent illegal election practices.

    Their explanation would involve no logic, but an over weaning helping of feelings and emotions and prejudices thinly disguised as concern for the people.

    A couple of days ago one of the Biden commercials was on TV. He made a comment about wearing masks that very well pertains to guns as far as Liberals are concerned. He said "this isn't about your rights, it's about common sense and responsibility to others". I am paraphrasing, but that was the gist of the message.

    I think the founding fathers indeed believed the citizens should have whatever firearms necessary to ensure the government was of and by the people, citizens, not taking away liberty and freedom and creating subjects.

    When we hear propaganda like:

    "this isn't about your rights, it's about common sense and responsibility to others"

    We can be certain that the ability to protect your family will now be taken away.
    (While Joe gets 24/7 armed security so his supporters don't accidently kill him, as they go looking to slaughter cops.)

    YOU don't deserve that right now, but of course Joe does.
    Why? What's the logic?

    Well, YOU don't DESERVE it because somewhere some other people in unknown circumstances are GETTING HURT (by criminals.)

    WTH Joe? The logic of Dementia? . . . or is it your FEELINGS?

    Now, Common Sense is what sent millions of Americans to strip the gun stores clean, seeking protection from random politically fueled mobs of looting and murdering rioters.

    Not one big democrat said: "Shoot the looters! Save your city! Save yourselves! Send in the troops!" Instead they said for years, "Give up your guns!", and now they claim, "Trump won't be allowed to send federal help, so just run and hide!" (Meanwhile Gropin' Joe hides from the microphone, counts his millions, and honest citizens run from a mob.)

    "Responsibility to others" means we protect ourselves and our family and our home from violence first. Otherwise our responsibility to anyone else is moot (we having nothing left to respond with, perhaps not even life itself, once losing it to the mob.)

    We have zero responsibility to protect any mob from the responding violence of confronted, goaded, attacked and enraged police or such abused citizens, and if some chickens get rounded up and caged with the roosters overnight, maybe they'd think twice about joining another mob.

    Trumpy needs to win or there will be a US Civil War ver. 2.0. And nobody really mentions this but IF there were mass chaos and anarchy in our country, I believe China will intervene on the Dumpo side. What the BLM and ANT miscreants don't realize is that China will not put up with such tactics and will throw them into a ditch in short order.

    But it should not come to that because a patriotic militia of marksman patriots will begin reaching out and touching those that need to be "touched"... ;)

    Here is another thing that I have been thinking about.

    Paraphrasing in regards to "assault weapons":

    Either do a buyback or register them with the nfa.

    Here is my opinion and I stand firm in my belief.

    1. Registering them with the nfa is just chock full of bad ju-ju in the first place.

    First, you're registering all of your firearms with the government. It has been shown in every country who has initiated registration is not long before confiscation. Look at just about every country in Europe and Australia and Canada that has done this.

    But all that aside, there is a $200 tax per firearm to register them with the NFA (national firearm act). So, they are essentially mandating taxing a God given right. Not only is that unconstitutional on its' face, it also affects everyone. Even if you were rich enough to be able to tax your guns (which you already paid an excise tax on in the first place so this would be double taxation), it will disproportionately affect poor americans. Not really unlike the NFA did in the first place and will be repeating history because that was their loophole in order to essentially ban firearms they didn't like at the time through requiring that you paid a tax and it put them out of the reach of ordinary common everyday citizens. So this would be like NFA part 2.

    Next. NFA transfer wait times have already proven that they can exceed 12 to even 18 months and that's on the few firearms that are in the registry and current backlogs.

    With as many firearms as are transferred currently through nics (a seperate system than NFA), imagine adding 100 million more transfers a year to your already absurd wait times. It would essentially grind to a halt and would crash the system. Period. It would.

    Any right delayed is a right denied.

    This will never work people. The whole firearm system would have to be completely re-wrote and started over from scratch.

    2. The government can not "buy back" what it never sold you in the first place so that is just false on its' face.

    But let's play along for a moment with the idea.

    The government revenue is due to taxes that you and I pay. So, if we were to agree to sell our firearms to the government, we would essentially just be giving them to the government because we'd be paying to disarm ourselves and that is entirely ignorant. I mean, really. You would think these people would be both smarter than that, or at least be capable of stopping for one minute to use enough critical thinking skills to realize that is just one of the most stupid ideas ever.

    This is why you never loan money to someone that you're playing poker against. You'll lose every time because you're playing against yourself with your own money.

    Just when I think the socialist democrats can't get any more dumb, they do.

    John, there is another thing that I've seen proposed that was not mentioned above.

    INSURANCE

    In the last couple of years I've seen governments [perhaps city or county] proposing or passing "gun liability" insurance or some such crock. That would be another big kick in the wallet.

    I found an article as I was writing the above paragraph. It was San Jose CA in 2019.
    One year ago he wrote this article. --> LINK

    Excerpt:
    San Jose mayor: Why I’m requiring my residents to insure guns
    Opinion by [Mayor] Sam Liccardo August 26, 2019 at 3:59 p.m. EDT

    ... Of course, “the crooks” won’t pay a fee or buy insurance; only law-abiding gun owners would. An insurance requirement at the point of sale, if purchased locally, would make it harder for some guns to get into the wrong hands. Regardless of where the gun is purchased, all San Jose residents would face an insurance requirement for merely possessing a gun — just as they would a car. The insurance thereby provides an additional tool for law enforcement against crooks. A prospective burglar casing a home or a criminal standing watch on a street corner may avoid arrest due to lack of demonstrable criminality. Yet, if a constitutionally compliant pat-down search revealed possession of an uninsured gun, the suspect would face the consequences of an uninsured motorist, including a fine, misdemeanor conviction and seizure of the gun.

    Insurance, buy backs, in my opinion just left wing rhetoric to convince the public that they really mean well. Their agenda is to disarm the citizens, turn us into subjects, and have absolute power.

    The 2nd guarantees the left cannot do those very things.

    I think if Biden were to win the election that Antifa and BLM will feel more emboldened than they are now.

    For the life of me I don't understand why a group of patriotic citizens in Portland haven't waited in the shadows just away from the action and followed some of those punks when they leave. Give a few of them a good old fashioned beat down.

    How sad for Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, Portland Baltimore, New York and Washington DC....

    People who live there would often sneer at you if you came from some small peaceful town where people can still make a living without Uncle Sam looking over their shoulders.

    Meanwhile a large percentage of their population is certifiably insane, and only survive to repeat their Felonies from the huge forbearance of America when it comes to dealing with criminals.

    But the pendulum always swings the other way and this will come to an end, and due to something no one sees yet.

    as appealing as that idea might be to revenge seeking enthusiasts, there are much smarter ways to do this that do not involve actually having to slaughter people with Firearms.

    People are generally stupid, and police have managed to round up in a huge number of outstanding warrant holders, by acts of simple subterfuge.

    If I was guarding the federal courthouse in Portland every night, I’d be much more creative. You can catch a lot of flies with sugar if you know where to put the bait.

    Any firearms "taxes" will be directed to any number of "touchy-feely" programs so the Dumpos can tout the "good" the taxing is doing. We all know this will be BS...

    A little OT but WHAT IF billionaires like Sorass, Bloomshite, Starer, etc are buying up guns and ammo through straws in order to create their own army and/or create a scarcity of guns/ammo for the common patriot?
