Biden’s New Gun Regulations: Punishing Kids for Having Fun

Sep 7, 2023 | True Patriot News Daily

The Biden administration has proposed a number of regulations that would make it more difficult for children to participate in hunting and other outdoor activities. These regulations include:

  • A ban on the sale of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.
  • A requirement that all gun owners undergo a background check.
  • A ban on the sale of ammunition to minors.
  • A requirement that all gun owners be trained in gun safety.

The Biden administration has argued that these regulations are necessary to reduce gun violence. However, critics of the regulations argue that they will punish law-abiding citizens and make it more difficult for children to participate in hunting and other outdoor activities.

One of the most controversial regulations is the ban on the sale of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Assault weapons are semi-automatic firearms that are designed to look like military rifles. High-capacity magazines are magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

The Biden administration has argued that assault weapons and high-capacity magazines are not necessary for self-defense or hunting. They have also argued that these weapons are disproportionately used in mass shootings.

Critics of the ban argue that assault weapons and high-capacity magazines are commonly used for hunting and self-defense. They also argue that the ban will not be effective in reducing gun violence, as criminals will still be able to obtain these weapons illegally.

Another controversial regulation is the requirement that all gun owners undergo a background check. Currently, private gun sales are not subject to background checks. The Biden administration has argued that this loophole allows criminals and people with mental health problems to obtain guns.

Critics of the requirement argue that it will be burdensome for law-abiding citizens and will not be effective in reducing gun violence. They also argue that the requirement will violate the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

Senate Republicans and Democrats fired off two letters late Tuesday in opposition of the Biden administration's crackdown on school hunting education and archery programs nationwide.

The letters, led by Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, stated that the Department of Education misinterpreted legislation regarding funding for such programs and called on Senate Appropriations Committee leaders to restore funding. The first letter to Education Secretary Miguel Cardona was signed by nine Republicans and nine Democrats, while the second to Appropriations leadership was signed by six Republicans and 11 Democrats.

“Unfortunately, and contrary to Congressional intent, the Department of Education has misinterpreted the language to exclude certain educational activities from receiving federal resources,” Cornyn and 17 other lawmakers wrote to Cardona.
