Biden’s Universal Background Checks Plan Making its way through Regulatory Back Door

Aug 2, 2023

In 2022, President Joe Biden signed the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act into law implementing the first major gun control in nearly 30 years.

According to a Fact Sheet released by the Biden Administration in May of 2023, a key feature of this legislation is “enhanced background checks” and a revised definition of who is “engaged in the business” of dealing in firearms.

An article released by the New York Times today is reporting that, “The regulations required to put the new law into effect — expected to be released soon — would require anyone who earns a profit from selling firearms to obtain a federal license and conduct background checks. Previously, dealers were required to join the federal system only if they derived their chief livelihood from selling weapons. Failing to register carries a penalty of up to five years in prison and $250,000 in fines.”

If the regulations are as the New York Times describes, then anyone selling a single firearm for profit would be considered a dealer and subject to all of the rules, regulations, fees, background checks and requirements of a firearms business.

“Joe Biden couldn’t ram Universal Gun Registration through the Congressional front door so now he is trying to do it through the back door using an Executive Order,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights. “Biden has no right to legislate this way.”

“The ATF and Biden Administration have a bad habit of making up their own laws when things don’t go their way in Congress or the Courts,” said Brown. “The National Association for Gun Rights stands ready to mobilize its members and legal council to fight this in Congress and the Courts if necessary.”

         The National Association for Gun Rights is the nation’s largest “no compromise” pro-gun organization, with 4.5 million members nationwide.
