President Joseph Biden issued an executive order on Tuesday that would get the United States “as close to universal background checks as possible without additional legislation.”
According to the Second Amendment, he is prohibited from doing anything that will infringe on the rights of Americans to keep and bear arms.CLICK HERE TO JOIN OUR NEWSLETTER
The Second Amendment says, “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
The definition of “infringe” is to act so as to limit or undermine something. The definition of “shall” means must. It doesn’t mean might or may. Shall not means you can not.
The Second Amendment doesn’t limit itself to Congress. It says “…the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” It doesn’t mention legislation or Congress. It is directed at the entire federal government.

The president also wants the so-called “assault weapons ban” reinstated. The stated purpose of Biden’s executive order is to “increase the number of background checks conducted before firearm sales, bringing the United States as close to universal background checks as possible without additional legislation.”
“The Executive Order will also keep more guns out of dangerous hands by increasing the effective use of ‘red flag’ laws, strengthen efforts to hold the gun industry accountable, and accelerate law enforcement efforts to identify and apprehend the shooters menacing our communities,” the executive order continues. “President Biden is also encouraging the Federal Trade Commission to issue a public report analyzing how gun manufacturers market firearms to minors.”
The President’s Cabinet is directed under the Executive Order to:
- Increase the number of background checks by ensuring that all background checks required by law are conducted before firearm purchases, moving the U.S. as close to universal background checks as possible without additional legislation.
- Improve public awareness and increase appropriate use of extreme risk protection (“red flag”) orders and safe storage of firearms.
- Address the loss or theft of firearms during shipping.
- Provide the public and policymakers with more information regarding federally licensed firearms dealers who are violating the law.
- Use the Department of Defense’s acquisition of firearms to further firearm and public safety practices.
- Help catch shooters by accelerating federal law enforcement’s reporting of ballistics data.
- Accelerate and intensify implementation of the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act (BSCA).
- Improve federal support for gun violence survivors, victims and survivors’ families, first responders to gun violence, and communities affected by gun violence.
- Advance congressional efforts to prevent the proliferation of firearms undetectable by metal detectors.
President Biden, according to the executive order information sheet, “has taken more executive action to reduce gun violence than any other president at this point in their presidency.”
The executive order, according to critics, is clearly unconstitutional.
“1000000000% unconstitutional,” claimed Josh Barnett.
“For those that were afraid and wondering what the Democrats would do you’re seeing a full on unconstitutional attempt to pass legislation without the consent of Congress or the people,” Kelly Justice said.
“Without legislation? The veil slips a little more,” R.J. Kendall observed.
“My executive order directs my Attorney General to infringe on US Citizens rights as much as possible before someone is willing to take it to the Supreme Court,” William Ryan said, emphasizing, “- this is the mentality of an authoritarian.”
