Trump blazed that EO trail with the bumpstock ban, not that I intend to obey any new law.

Joe Biden plans to move quickly against guns, adding the issue to his list of first executive orders, according to his top policy aide.
Stef Feldman, the national policy director of Biden’s presidential campaign, included the Democrat’s gun plan in a list of initial executive actions set to be unleashed after Inauguration Day.
Speaking in a Zoom briefing hosted by Georgetown University’s Institute of Politics and Public Service, she said that Biden is planning to “make big, bold changes through executive action, not just on policing and climate like we talked about previously, but in healthcare and education on gun violence, on a range of issues.”
She added that “there’s really a lot you can do through guidance and executive action.”
It is expected that Biden will use executive orders, especially if the Democrats don’t win both Georgia special Senate elections.
The mention of guns in his initial executive actions is already sparking concern in the industry, which is readying an aggressive lobbying campaign. “I’m going to be pretty busy,” said one top gun lobbyist.
During the campaign, Biden won the endorsement of former candidate Beto O’Rourke, who famously promised to grab everyone’s AR-15.
While he calls his plan one aimed at ending “gun violence,” most of Biden’s ideas amount to limiting what people can buy or have. For example, he wants to end the sale of AR-15-style firearms (the most popular in the nation), regulate those that people already have, and limit the size of magazines those guns use.
I normally like to not report/share this kind of thing because it brings down the mood and you can get it form about 1 zillion other places already but, it was asked for back during the once a decade reader feedback day so I suppose I will post about potential gun control more often. If you guys don’t want to see that crap here and want it to stay a place that give you a break from it, comment and let me know below one way or the other.
