From the GOA and from Breitbart news: President Biden is set to announce a new rule going into effect. Universal background checks will be going into effect for ALL firearms transactions. Any firearm that changes hands will soon require a background check, per a soon to be issued executive order from Biden.

How can Biden do this? A unique reading of changes made to 18 USC 921 that were made by the “Bipartisan Safer Communities Act” when Biden signed it into law on June 25, 2022. Yes, the word “bipartisan” is actually in the law’s title. The Republicans sold gun owners down the river. The law’s sponsors were none other than Florida’s Marco Rubio and Rick Scott.

Here is what the law did:

Section 12002 of the BCSA amends a subparagraph of the GCA definition of “engaged in the business” as it pertains to federally licensed firearms dealers, by striking the language “with the principal objective of livelihood and profit,” and replacing it with “to predominantly earn a profit.” As amended, the definition at
18 U.S.C. §921(a)(21)(C) reads as follows:
[“Engaged in the business,”] as applied to a dealer in firearms, as defined in section 921(a)(11)(A), [means] a person who devotes time, attention, and labor to dealing in firearms as a regular course of trade or business to predominantly earn a profit with the principal objective of livelihood and profit through the repetitive purchase and resale of firearms, but such term shall not include a person who makes occasional sales, exchanges, or purchases of firearms for the enhancement of a personal collection or for a hobby, or who sells all or part of his collection of firearms.

(text that was added is in bold, text eliminated is struck through)

By choosing to interpret it in a way that is most restrictive, this EO will direct the ATF to consider anyone who sells a firearm for more than they bought it for as being an unlicensed dealer. In one fell swoop, they have virtually eliminated all private sales. This also explains why the ATF has such a hard on for kitchen table dealers as of late. Read the entire thing here. (pdf warning)

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.”

This is huge. In one fell swoop, the Biden administration has enacted the most sweeping change to gun control law in decades. The rules will be backed up by a renewed push to prosecute businesses that refuse to register by accessing bank records, storage unit leases, and other expenses associated with running an off-the-books gun business.

Make no mistake- if this is in fact the case, we are looking at a national firearms registry, and the only real purpose for registration is confiscation. It’s plain that the left is looking to completely circumvent Congress and will simply use executive orders and the administrative rule making process to create whatever laws and regulations that they wish, and in this case they were helped out with the help of Republican Senators.

I have said it plenty of times before- Just because the Democrats are your enemy doesn’t make Republicans your friend. Again and again, we see that Republicans only SAY that they are pro Second Amendment during election time, but then sell us down the river once they get our votes. Now they have figured out that the way to stay in power is to do what you are told. All Republicans care about is staying in power, and the writing is on the wall- play music to the tune dictated by the Left, or they will make sure you are gone. So Republicans are selling us out.

Things are going to get a lot worse before they get even worse. The year 2024 is going to be a cast iron bitch.

Just make 2 separate transactions of in kind trade. There can be work-arounds. We just have to be creative

well, bozo started this “trend’ back when he said he has a phone and a pen, remember ?
one thing I find hard to take is the fact that they use E.O. as laws.
from what I remember from history class was that only congress had the power to make or change laws. and remember how they tried to crack down on the “ghost guns” ?
3d printing will be the next target for them. but in the end it is always ammo as the weak link
just look at the site about inprov weapons as to see how others get around such laws.

    I can see ATF getting involved in us having to “prove our innocence “ by proving no profit was made…. And considering inflation and the general state of the country, most any firearm bought last century will have gone up in price…… meaning, on paper , you made a profit…….

They ain’t gonna stop… make a decision if you want to kneel in supplication or a better, stable shooting stance? AO, I posted at Bustednuckles this here post.

Bear · August 3, 2023 at 11:49 pm

My senator, Todd Young, Republicuck senator from Indiana voted for it, also. He is another lying POS. These people hate us, doesn’t matter which party it is, they are the same party. I will not give ONE penny to any political party ever again. FTFG, and FJB.

With this SCOTUS? Might be the straw that breaks the GCA.

Just sitting over here waiting.

“The most terrifying force of death comes from the hands of Men who wanted to be left Alone. They try, so very hard, to mind their own business and provide for themselves and those they love. They resist every impulse to fight back, knowing the forced and permanent change of life that will come from it. They know that the moment they fight back, their lives as they have lived them, are over. The moment the Men who wanted to be left alone are forced to fight back, it is a form of suicide. They are literally killing off who they used to be. Which is why, when forced to take up violence, these Men who wanted to be left alone, fight with unholy vengeance against those who murdered their former lives. They fight with raw hate, and a drive that cannot be fathomed by those who are merely play-acting at politics and terror. TRUE TERROR will arrive at these people’s door, and they will cry, scream, and beg for mercy… but it will fall upon the deaf ears of the Men who just wanted to be left alone.”

They can only hang you once.
The pic is my version, but IIRC, Oleg Volk came up with this one himself years ago.
And he’s right.

Democrats have tried it both ways: demanding that people who sell as few as one gun register as FFLs; and cancelling the FFLs of people who weren’t “commercial enough” to be “dealers” (remember “the US has more gun dealers than gas stations?”)
As gun owners, we know how to function in both regimes because we already have had to. And no matter how the fedguv whipsaws the license issue, it has never gotten them any advantage.

ColdSoldier · August 5, 2023 at 8:46 am

Can you tell me where to access a list of the politicians who voted for this?

Gryphon · August 6, 2023 at 5:00 pm

I seem to think that they want this Change so that they can run more “Entrapment of a not-a-Dealer” by Private Sales advertised on Social Media or local Chat Groups. Advertising a Gun for Sale on the Internet will be prima facie Evidence of being a “Dealer”.

As for ‘Registration’, too many Millions of Guns pre-date the NICS system, and change hands Privately all the Time. Any further steps to force “Registration” will have the same Result as an attempt at Confiscation.

    Divemedic · August 6, 2023 at 6:10 pm

    Until someone looking at criminal time decides to become an informant and rats you out in exchange for a better deal, like what happened to this poor bastard.

      Gryphon · August 8, 2023 at 3:46 pm

      Several Years ago around here, a small Licensed Dealer (side counter in a Hardware Store) got Framed for a ‘Straw Man’ purchase by someone exactly like that. This was before the NICS check was instituted, and the Rat was ‘under indictment’ Locally for a Violent Felony (carjacking). Supposedly, the ATF had been looking at local Court Records for just this type of Scumbag to use against small Dealers in that manner. Of course, after the Scumbag committed the Crime for the feds, they did Nothing (legally couldn’t) to prevent him from going to Trial and being Convicted.

      So, Yeah, you always have to be careful of who you ‘Deal’ with.
